I am not reviewing the musical content....we all know this is one of the great Rock albums of all time. I am reviewing the NEW release and specifically the VIDEO DOCUMENTARY which they advertise at approx 30 minutes WRONG...its about 21 minutes and on the back of the disc they push IN-Studio performances by Malcolm and Angus Young of "Hells Bells, You Shook me All night Long" " Rock and Roll Ain't Noise Pollution" "Shoot to Thrill" and more! sounds great right? WRONG...it is snipits of them playing a lick here or there..VERY misleading...

its a nice 20 minute documentary but hardly what EPIC claims it to be...

i would still buy this again....as it is stunning sound and the small documentary is fun but don't expect much..

i love the album, but i must strongly disagree with some other reviewers saying that the dvd side sounds better than the cd side, i have good gear (not a home theater in a box)i couldnt tell the difference even in a blind test, and no one i got to listen to it could tell either. the only difference between sides is 16 bit 44.1 khz for cd, and 16 bit 48 khz for dvd.
amazon should really address this issue and get a backbone and post the truth about all sony/bmg dual disc titles. but like everyone else, amazon is probably petrified of sony.

JUST A FOLLOWUP TO MR. STEVEN M GADDIS, THE DVD SIDE OF BACK IN BLACK IS NOT EVEN IN THE SAME BALLPARK AS DVD AUDIO, ITS NOTHING MORE THAN DOLBY DIGITAL STEREO, THATS IT!!...PERIOD, AND I AM SORRY BUT I HAVE LISTENED TO BOTH SIDES ON MERIDIAN GEAR PARTNERED WITH B&W NAUTILUS SPEAKERS, AND THERE WAS NO DIFFERENCE AT ALL, AND THAT MY FRIEND IS THE HARD FACTS, SONY IS PULLING AN OLD FASHIONED BAIT AND SWITCH!!!!

I know another reviewer warned European buyers that it wouldn't play on their DVD-Video or DVD-Audio players, but it's not just Europe - it's the U.S. too!

I have a DVD-Audio player in my car (Acura TL) and it would NOT play the DVD side of this disk.

I found out too late that the DVD side of dual disks can come in different formats. Apparently the Nine Inch Nails dual disk is DVD-A compatible, but I'm not sure which others are.

Amazon needs to provide more details on which format the DVD side of these dual disks contain!

No, of course not the album, which is obviously a classic. The dual-disc is a complete ripoff in relation to its advertising. As an audiophile (wannabe), I bought this version for the "entire album in enhanced LPCM Stereo" on the DVD side. Typically that would be at a much higher sampling rate, better bit depth, or something enhanced. In this case its 48khz, 16 bit PCM, which is basically the same quality as the CD side (more or less, perhaps a slight uptick). They didn't even use that much of the available storage on the DVD side and they gave us this! It's just wrong, wrong, wrong. Poor product design and deceptive advertising. No wonder this version is not a classic with the audiophiles. Who makes these decisions?

I, like many other reviewers, bought the dualdisc version for the enhanced audio, expecting 24bit/96khz or 24bit/192khz DVD-A format. This disc does not contain that. It does not contain any dvd audio at all, only the DVD-Video content, for which the audio track is 16bit/48khz.

A true DVD-A disk has content in the AUDIO_TS folder on the dvd when you explore the folder structure on your pc. This disc has an empty audio_ts folder, just like any other DVD-Video disk would have.

Sony is misleading in the advertising of their dualdisc. It NOT a dualdisc, it is simply a cd/dvd double sided disc.
Apparently sony does this for all their "dualdiscs"

Fantastic AC/DC album. But this format, the DualDisc junk..is just that...junk. It won't work on many computers and even some CD players. It's totally unreliable. Beware. I'm going to email DualDisc (their address is on the web) and give em' a piece of my mind. A total waste of money!

Blatantly Sony did not want to cut into their SACD business. That is the result when consumer electronics manufacturers double as media publishers...

European buyers be forewarned: The DVD-side of this dualdisc is encoded "Region 1". It does NOT play on European DVD- or DVD-Audio-players.

I have had this CD before but this one did not have the quality of the others purchased from stores. I like AC/DC music but something was not right about this CD.
