Would be very good, but ...,

This review is from: Live At The Albert [Blu-ray]  (Blu-ray)This could have been a great concert with some great numbers from the Rat Pack. RW's voice is good, strong, and in-tune and he carries off these well-known standards with flair and polish. Musically I could not fault him. The band and dancers are really great to work with too. On a big sound system the sound stage is really good and with blu-ray on an LED screen, the effect is almost like being there at the Albert Hall.
All of this could have warranted five stars. But, I personally don't like the regular use of the 'F' word he uses between numbers. Why also the need to light up and smoke a cigerette on stage at one point? Neither adds anything to his performance and just insults the audience. These things, plus a couple of crude remarks about his supporting female dancers bring it down to three stars in my book.
I don't think that one would have seen or heard Messers Sinatra, Martin and Davis doing any of these things.

Having just watched this for the first time, I agree with your review wholeheartedley. I know swearing seems to have become very commonplace on stage in recent years, but that does not make it right. While Robbie's younger audience may well find it acceptable, many of the older viewers will find it offensive, particularly as this show is supposed to be a tribute to the original artists who performed most of the songs.

What about a review of the blu ray picture/audio quality? When reading a bluray review you want to glean some information about sound and picture quality and not just have a review of the performance alone.
