4.0 out of 5 stars Great filmimg --- shame about the audio!, 2 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Live At Luna Park [Blu-ray] [2013] (Blu-ray)
First the positives. The band seemed to be playing better then ever. Virtuoso musicians every one of them. However I still miss Mike Portnoy but appreciate what a difficult role it is for Mike Mangini even though he is a brilliant drummer.
Song selection was varied and great to see the latest album songs (at the time of the concert) interspersed with some absolute classics. My only beef was that there no songs from Black Clouds Silver Linings album. There was one of the tracks playing in the background of the documentary. I just love that album and wonder if omitting all tracks for inclusion in the concert was a bit of a snub to Mike Portnoy??
The main negative which has been voiced by many is that the audio when played on 5.1 or 7.1 is thin and has hardly any bass on it. The sub woofer is redundant! Very disappointing. HOWEVER! If you play it in Stereo mode the bass returns and the sound quality is good. I assure you I am not making this up and has been voiced by others. Don't let this put you off from buying. It is a brilliant concert in your own home!! I am going to see D.T. at Wembley on the 14th and hopefully they will play as well as they did in Argentina.
