Top Customer Reviews
The album opens with an outstanding rendition of 'Round Here', in my opinion, the best version of the song I have heard from the band; the opening song is a perfect example of what to expect from the concert, the band sounding better than ever, Adam's heart-felt singing, a lot of improvisation with Adam adding lyrics on the go as well as using lyrics from other songs, specifically 'Raining in Baltimore' and 'Private Archipelago'. It is quite impressive and worth mentioning the synergy of the band, if you did not know they were improvising you couldn't really tell as it looks and sounds as if rehearsed.
One after another, the band delivers incredible an updated versions of all the songs from their debut album, going sometimes as far as including bits of Springsteen's 'Thunder Road' in between the lyrics for 'Rain King'
The HD video presentation is quite impressive(1080i, 1.78:1), while I did notice a few cases in which the image didn't look as good as a BD can look, those were a few and not worth worrying about.Read more ›
The DTS -HD Master Audio and video production of this Blu-Ray is fantastic and I look forward to playing this time and time again. Watching this will definitely make you want to see them the next time they come around.
My only two criticism are typical for almost all concert films....
1 I want to break the hand of the video editor....I guess it is a result of the MTV crap, but dmanit, there is NO reason to quick edit to a different shot on every damn beat. Rain King is almost unwatchable! Fraking shame. I think it should be mandatory that every film editor watch and LEARN from The Last Waltz.
2 most surround sound systems have marginal center and rear speakers . I'd like to have a HD stereo track included.. No big deal though, as it is easy to downshift to stereo when playing the dts multichannel audio. Better 2 channels though great speakers than multichannels with marginal speakers.
Seeing the Crows perform this album live was great

Nice DVD, sound and video are both ok, mix not so very good, seems like a small impromptu gig more than a properly scheduled and practiced concert. Read morePublished on January 28, 2013 by Richo
