I know what many of you are asking. "Is this much of an improvement over the DVD?" I can answer that with a very confident and resounding YES. I bought the DVD years ago after seeing them live at Metal Masters in 2008. The video quality is much better with no compression artifacts and very little color bleeding. Another problem that was noticeable to me on the DVD was really weird ghosting/motion blur of some kind. This is also gone in the Blu-ray release. Seeing this concert in high definition is a treat since you can catch so many small details, like scratches on Tony Iommi's guitar or the sequins on Dio's groovy shirts. Everything here looks fantastic.
The sound quality seems great to my ears. I don't have a speaker system to test out how crazy it can get, but it comes with HD audio, Dolby 5.1, and stereo. From what my TV speakers put out, everything sounds crisp and clear. The songs have varying mixes, such as Geezer Butler's bass lines dominating some tracks, while Tony Iommi's pounding riffs dominate others. I imagine that what we hear on this disc is what the band/sound engineers would want us to hear. It's perfect. See "Die Young" or "Falling Off the Edge of the World" for examples of the great mixing at work.
That brings us to the setlist, which is spectacular. You get material from the first three Sabbath Mk. II albums, Heaven & Hell, The Mob Rules, and Dehumanizer, along with some new tracks from the Dio Years compilation. This is a pretty long setlist and it doesn't disappoint.Read more ›
