4.0 out of 5 stars Great - but who did the sound mix?
Really enjoyed the DVD but the sound mix, although clear, was a dissapointment as it was obviously mixed by Mr Mustaine as you can hardly hear Chris Broderick unless soloing (and even then not nearly as much as you would think would be correct) Dave Ellefson's bass is also very low (excuse the pun)in the mix and the drums, although better balanced level-wise are basically...

3.0 out of 5 stars Sadly the audio audio is very poor
The sound engineer/techician should have his ears checked by a physician. I really don't understand how the audio recording has passed the mastering phase in this poor condition. Although the sound is good in the bass and mids, the highs are totally absent and all you're left with is a muddy treble. At first I thought someone has messed my amp settings and turned the...

3.0 out of 5 stars Sadly the audio audio is very poor, 15 Sep 2010
The sound engineer/techician should have his ears checked by a physician. I really don't understand how the audio recording has passed the mastering phase in this poor condition. Although the sound is good in the bass and mids, the highs are totally absent and all you're left with is a muddy treble. At first I thought someone has messed my amp settings and turned the treble down, but all was set properly. If you don't believe me try this: put the Rust in Peace cd in your player and then the bluray: judge for yourself. The cd has brilliant, polished, metallic highs and a moderate bass. The bluray sounds like you have earplugs. Even Deep Purple's In Rock album recorded (poorly) 40 years ago actually sounds a little better. As if this wasn't enough, if you watch closely the audio seems at times not to be in sync, especially in Dave's vocals. I really don't know if there vocals have been dubbed afterwards or not, but it's annoying to see your favorite players looking as if they're lip synching. In the video part there's nothing to be unhappy about. The picture quality is superb, all shots are crisp and well focused. Overall the band plays superb, all riffs are played exactly as I have them "stamped" in my brain and the rhythm/tempo synchronization is perfect. In the end I rate this 3 stars because it's the first bluray from Megadeth and hopefully the next Big Four release will not have these problems.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great - but who did the sound mix?, 22 Sep 2010
Really enjoyed the DVD but the sound mix, although clear, was a dissapointment as it was obviously mixed by Mr Mustaine as you can hardly hear Chris Broderick unless soloing (and even then not nearly as much as you would think would be correct) Dave Ellefson's bass is also very low (excuse the pun)in the mix and the drums, although better balanced level-wise are basically a mix of very 'clicky' bass drums and snare with the Toms almost inaudable - listen to the intro to Rust in Peace for a prime example. Overall a very good Blu Ray and the extra tracks seem to have a slightly better sound mix - maybe Dave will re-master this in a few years?

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing sound but otherwise a good package, 3 Jan 2011
As others have said, the sound is fairly poor, but I don't think it's a complete disaster. The main problem is with the lead guitar, the most important instruments! I think Dave's vocals are to loud compared to the instruments as well. If you know the songs well you'll find yourself 'filling in' the quiet bits in your head. Contrary to what another reviewer said, I think that the sound issues affect the bonus material too.

The video is excellent quality so no problems there.

Despite the gripes, I still enjoyed it. Just be aware that it is flawed and, if you think you'll be annoyed about the problems, don't buy it!

3.0 out of 5 stars Meh, 25 April 2013
Decent enough performance overall, but it's deffo not 'live'. Unfortunately the vocals are clearly overdubbed in places - which sets you to wondering what else has been touched-up. Disappointing.

4.0 out of 5 stars MEGADETH AT THEIR BEST!!, 6 Mar 2011
There is no shortage Of Megadeth live dvd's and here's another one for the market, released one month before The Big Four Release that includes them, Metallica, Slayer and Anthrax, so there is a chance you are waiting for that, well don't wait get this great performance now, it's Megadeth at their best, filmed on the last American date of their Rust In Peace Tour at the famous Hollywood Palladium this dvd/cd release has the whole gig and the classic album Rust In Peace played from start to finish to mark it's 20 year anniversary.

Whats more original bassist David Ellefson is back and it's been a while since Megadeth sounded so tight! Yes it's a pity Rust In Peace Guitarist Marty Friedman and Drummer Nick Menza didn't return but it doesn't take away from the performance, as soon as the opening riff of Holy Wars.. belts out the crowd go mental, Chris Broderick is a fine guitarist who compliments Mustaine,Shawn Drover has long since proved he's been the best drummer in Megadeth since Menza.

The stand out performances are Holy Wars, Hangar 18 and Rust in Peace... Polaris, theses really remind you why Rust In Peace is one of the best metal albums of all time, the sound on the dvd is perfectly mixed in 5.1 and captures each instrument brilliantly, it's also great that you get the cd of the show as well. On the dvd you get a few extra's including some rehearsal footage, you also get the six extra tracks that were played that night, it's a pity that they weren't just included to run along the main feature, these six tracks are also include on the cd and include a brilliant version of Symphony Of Destruction which still sounds as fresh now as it did in 1992 and of course they close with that famous opening bass line that is Peace Sells.

This is probably the best live Megadeth dvd have released so it's a must have for all fan's of the band!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Not as bad as some people are saying !!, 4 Aug 2013
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Was a bit apprehensive about buying this as previous reviews were mixed. However the sound isn't as bad IMHO as others have stated. Good to have a dedicated Megadeth release and a better selection of songs than the big 4 Blu-Ray (sofia) which is great also, a must for any Megadeth fan !!

2.0 out of 5 stars Faulty sound on main half of it.., 14 Oct 2010
The main rust in peace concert has dodgy sound. The left side is much higher than the right and puts you off.

The extra songs that are on the BD are as they should be. The main set list has def audio mastering problems.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very poor sound, 25 Sep 2010
By 
N. Jones (Manchester, UK) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
The surround sound mix on this Blu-Ray is absolutely awful, perhaps to the point that technical errors has made it to production. As another reviewer stated the sound is out of sync not only with the picture (which can be corrected for) but with other instruments and mics - for example Dave's vocals have almost certainly been redubbed and are completely out of sync with the rest of the performance. Some instruments are almost completely missing - e.g. at one point the drummer is shown running across some tubular bells which make no noise whatsoever. But worse than that, listen to the rear left speaker and you'll hear the same audio as the front left. The crowd noise only comes out of the rear right speaker. This is a completely inexcusable cock-up and my copy will be going back. It's a shame too, as the picture is nice and sharp and there are some good bonus features on the disc.
