3.0 out of 5 stars For 3 it was worth trying, 5 Sep 2012

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............
