Still the best Ring on DVD / Blu-ray,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Wagner - Der Ring des Nibelungen [DVD]   [NTSC] (DVD)
This is not a review but just a note to point you to the far more erudite reviewers who have written about the 2007 Barenboim / Kupfer release which is the same as this.Richard Wagner - Der Ring des Nibelungen [DVD] 
I mentioned this set in a review of the excellent Fura del Baus set. I now sadly have eight dvd sets of the Ring but this is still the one played most.
Recorded in the 1990s with a stellar cast, a non-traditional but believable set and incandescent orchestral playing at points sounding more lush Hollywood film score than Bayreuth and all the better for it.
For more detailed insights, please read those reviews especially the ones by John De Wald and John Ferngrove who both write elegantly and eloquently.

I don't see the point of this comment: he says straight out that it isn't a review so your saying it's not really a review adds nothing at all, sorry.
