1.0 out of 5 stars dreadful, 21 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Songs In The Key Of Life (Blu-ray Audio)
I do wish people would not indulge their desire to talk about the music on an album that has been out for decades; same goes for movies. We are knee-deep in info regarding content; what we don't get is enough information regarding the quality of the release; if we did I could have saved myself some money and disappointment.
The sound quality of this Pure Audio Blu-ray is truly abysmal; the vinyl sounds better; the MP3 sounds better. Apart from being a musician, I have been actively involved in hi-fi and audio all my life, so I know what good means; Pure Audio is supposed to be exemplary; this release of Songs in... is appalling, nothing short of…
I also bought Selling England... and it is superb, so you can't say it is subjective or dependent on the system (£20,000 worth) because it is not.
They have transferred from a vinyl EQ-d master; where do these people come from? Is it any wonder we don't have a record industry anymore?

The reason that people continue to share their views about the actual content of music releases is that not everybody has heard a lot of the "legacy" reissues that you or I have been familiar with since the time of their original release. There are a lot of people far younger than us who've never heard any Stevie Wonder, and wouldn't know where to begin without the input of those who're able to offer a value judgement, however subjective; every new music format brings with it a fresh demographic who're anxious to broaden their taste.

Moreover, people's relationship to their record collection changes over time; some records may lose their potency as we become older, while others grow old gracefully and betray subtleties which only become evident to us as our perspective changes; reappraisals of this kind are just as useful.

Thirdly, and just as importantly, some things just fall in or out of fashion due to under or over exposure.

Yes, fair comment: I have to agree. I think I was more rattled by the lack of info regarding the audio quality really ,rather than the surfeit of detail regarding the music content.

You're right, Keith; it's a question of balance, I suppose. :)

Thank you for the comment, Keith. Is it the Pure Audio Blu-Ray DVD version you reviewed?
What about the vynil editions? Which one would you recommend?
Cheers

Yes, Giorgio it was. I have not bothered with any other format so, I'm sorry, I can't suggest an alternative.
