  1.  This is IT!

    Posted: 

    I was in my early teens when I discovered Styx and it was their album "Pieces Of Eight" which I have always since cherished as a piece of great music. And what a great idea it was to play the whole album live with HD picture and HD-DTS Master audio for us to enjoy. The sound and picture quality is just as great as their performance which does not stray too far from the original which I appreciate.

    The other half of the show is equally great, it's just I like more the songs of the "Pieces Of Eight" album.

    One often buy music on bluray that is more or less disappointing for some reason, but this is not it. This one hits the mark in a big way and is definitely a big buy signal.

  2.  This is a must-have for Supertramp fans

    This concert have the best songs of Supertramp and is very similar to the audio originals. The video show some grains on dark sequences especially. But then again, a 65" HD-TV is very revealing and this is after all a concert done 33 years ago, so that is absolutely no problem or letdown.

    The real treat with this concert is the sound which is fantastic when hooked up so that it delivers the DTS HD Master sound system. It is without doubt one of my very best buys when it comes to Blu-rays.

  3.  Great concert but...

    This is The Police at its best and the picture quality is great and so is the sound but...

    I have a 7.1 sound system and what I found with this disc is that a LOT of sound is going through the centre channel as opposed to my other concerts on blu-ray. So just be careful and dont turn it too loud or your centre might just call it a day.

    Except for that its great but this peculiarity I just mentioned means that my protection level installment on my receiver doesnt apply and I always have to keep in mind the health of my center speaker when listening to this disc.

  4.  Great concert, but...

    No need to write about Springsteen as an artist as that is covered well by others here.

    The reason I don`t give it 5 stars is the sound. This Blu-ray is increadibly enough not made witht a HD sound system and it is highly noticeable on my home cinema system. The sound is muddy and less dynamic than it should have been. Had it been in DTS-HD or Dolby True HD this concert would have been so much better. Picture quality is great and in HD of course, but why on earth did they not do the same for the sound?

    Another thing I personally miss is bass. Maybe it`s the Springsteen "sound signature" but for me, something is missing in a rock concert if you can`t hear and feel the bass real good.

    It`s too bad because Springsteen is so good and such a recent concert should have been made with only the best equipment. Just compare the sound to other Blu-ray concerts like that of Jeff Beck, Yes and The Police which all have vastly superior sound quality.

  5.  Amazing performance

    What can one say other that Jeff Beck is amazing on guitar and here he is joined by top musicians. There is a variety in the selection of titles in this concert and the guest singers add to that.
    Both sound and picture is excellent and Im very satisfied with this concert being my first music Blu-Ray disc.
