4.0 out of 5 stars Very poor audio but great through headphones...., 1 Aug. 2004
This review is from: Rush - In Rio [DVD] [2008] (DVD)
If the audio mix had been better, this would definitely have been a 5 star DVD. I bought it knowing that there had been mixed reviews about the sound and what a disappointment it was when I finally got to play it - I couldn't hear the singing at all and the guitar parts seemed to just disappear into the mix. The presentation of the concert was breathtaking and I especially loved the dragon with beating wings at the Tracklist page, so I was expecting a lot better than what I got. Still, I persevered and used headphones and this really helped, 5.1 stereo through headphones is the best way to hear this amazing concert but still I shouldn't have to listen to a state-of-the-art DVD concert through 'phones, I should be able to just put it on and enjoy it. Criticisms aside, this is a masterful concert by 3 of the most talented and underrated musicians, who more than show the world what they can give. Neil Peart's drum solo is unbelievably brilliant. Alex Lifeson is an incendiary guitarist with technical prowess to match any guitarist I have seen to date and Geddy Lee's bass playing is stupendous as always and even more so, when he admits on the documentary disc, that he is having trouble with his "angry b*stard" finger that he normally plays with. All in all, this is a wonderful reminder of just how great Rush are, I only wish I could play it for family and friends when they come round. Shame.
