The Blu-Ray or DVD haven't been released yet.....,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Judas Priest: Epitaph [Blu-ray]  (Blu-ray)
....but it hasn't stopped three 'customers' from giving five star reviews, so either they're all psychics who have supernatural insight into the picture and sound quality, or their reviews are totally pointless.
That being said, if reviews are allowed on Blu-Rays/DVDs which nobody has seen, I'm writing one myself, and I'm giving one star because the video quality is non-existent (can't see a thing until I get a disc to put in the player), as is the sound quality (can't hear a thing either).
I suppose I could comment on the actual concert but I never saw that either.
Edit: Acquired the Blu-Ray within a few days of it's release and it's a cracker.
Sound quality isn't five star when compared to the very best in terms of separation and resolution, but this is metal so the emphasis is on power, energy and impact which are here in spades.
Picture quality is excellent and obviously the full Blu-Ray 1080p spec, when so many Blu-Rays are barely distinguishable from DVD.
Just the one star dropped for sound quality then, but this video was meant to be cranked up to volumes which would have the speakers of most TVs or home theatre systems distorting anyway.

These reviews aren't supposed to be for the gig, they're supposed to be for the recording on Blu-ray and DVD, and the star ratings are to indicate how good the sound quality is, the video quality and maybe any extras.
If Amazon were selling tickets to the gig then the star ratings would be useful, as if is they're totally pointless.

Good for you! Really pleased for you and if you feel the need to share it with me I'm flattered. Cheers Bro.
Naff all to do with the Blu-Ray or the DVD, but if you are one of the recording engineers and you do have some insight into either of these then please enlighten me and anyone else.
By the way, there's a film coming out this year called 'The Ice man' which I haven't seen, but you can be sure I'll give it five stars on Amazon as I've read the book and if the film is as good as the book it'll be amazing.
Then again, maybe I should just rate the book?????

What a muppet. As are all the other muppets who have 'reviewed' this release. Shame on you for sinking to their level.

Far better to just accept reviews of unreleased software and say nothing?
Maybe I should have tried to just take the high ground, although if I'd have called them 'muppets' they'd surely have spotted the hypocrisy and laughed me out of town?

Hi, i have seen JP on Epitaph tour 3 times: in the beginning (Sweden Rock Fest), middle of the tour (Belgrade - Serbia) and at the end of the tour (Hammersmith - UK) and the concert in Hammersmith was, by far, the weakest! Don't get me wrong, it was fantastic concert but compared to others on the same tour it couldn't match.

You're already being laughed out of town sunshine.

Oh dear, retreating into condescension! Not above being brought down to the level of us muppets then eh Stilts, and a little lower?
You made me laugh however (at you, not with you) so cheers for that, Sunshine.
