Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Phantom of the Opera at The Royal Albert Hall (Audio CD)
Despite the less than favourable reviews I thought for Amazon's current price of £3 it was worth a try. I have the Blu-ray which is absolutely fantastic, I cannot praise it highly enough The Phantom of the Opera at the Royal Albert Hall - Double Play (Blu-ray + DVD)[Region Free]
Unfortunately what many of the other reviewers have reported is true. The sound quality of this recording is sub standard and not anywhere near that of the Blu-ray. The engineering is terrible and whoever setup the microphones needs putting back in his cage at the zoo - I am assuming a chimpanzee was employed to do it as no sound engineer could have made such a mess of things.
The stereo stage is very narrow and lacks any depth, the balance between the artists is never quite right and it lacks the dynamism of the Blu-ray.
OK so for £3 I am not going to cut my wrists but the next trip to the charity shop............
