5.0 out of 5 stars Radiohead at their best February 13, 2012
By ROakes
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I had been anticipating this release for a long time and have watched various low quality versions of the performance. After receiving it I was totally blown away by the amazing video and sound quality after watching such low quality versions. The performance has such a different feel from the album. It feels more complete, powerful and organic. I can't stop watching it, and it's great to have the addition of the three non-album tracks, the daily mail, staircase, and supercollider, which are all excellent songs. While some will mourn the days of (insert your favorite album here), I think Radiohead are at the top of their game and the performance certainly reflects that.

As a side note on the Blu-ray, which I received, I had no difficulties playing it and I live in the US. Radiohead noted on there website that there may or may not be some playback issues in some other countries. I'm assuming this is why the DVD is also included.

No matter how you watch it though, you'll certainly love it.

4.0 out of 5 stars The King Of Limbs Blu-ray review February 6, 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I love Radiohead. They are one of my favorite bands and their music is so much better than most of what we hear today. I was very excited when I heard news that they would be releasing a live from the basement session on not just DVD, but for the first time a Blu-ray release! Now, I've watched the DVD, and it is fantastic. They really set the bar performance wise and have grown over the years in maturity. Picture quality looks great. Nothing to complain about. The sound quality is pretty good too. It comes in either Dolby 5.1 or PCM 2.1 stereo. The problem with this release though is the Blu-ray. It is encoded in a different region (B or C) and will not play on a standard Blu-ray player here in the U.S., which is very disappointing. I hope this gets re-released as a region 1 Blu-ray soon so we can enjoy the DTS HD 5.1 master sound quality. For now, the DVD will suffice.

Very quickly- the actual content of this is amazing. I love the concept of From The Basement and the power and talent of Raduohead is on full display. If only one of could be a fly on the wall for a session right?

But the main reason I am writing this is because if you are looking forward to the full 1080p version with any type of lossless sound and live in the US, chances are you may be disappointed. I tried it on 4 different blu ray players and it will not work. The reason is because of the different frame rate they used (I believe 50fps) and the inability for most N. American blu ray players to play this. It is not a region code issue at all as some may believe. If it weren't for this issue I would give it 5 stars.

Luckily it comes with the DVD also but it's still disappointing spending the extra money for the blu ray disc that doesn't work. I should add however that some players may not any trouble playing this (most high end Oppos can play it). I should add that my PS3 as well as 2 Panasonic players was not able to handle the frame rate. (They all have latest firmware as well).

My recommendation is to verify your player can handle the frame rate before buying the blu ray version. Otherwise save the $$ and get the DVD version.

4.0 out of 5 stars Decent seller, awesome DVD February 26, 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I gave negative feedback to the seller (Movies, Cds Games & More)because the Blue Ray disc would not play in any of my devices. However, the DVD played beautifully which was the reason I did not return the item. This show is excellent and as many reviewers suggest this is exactly what making music is about. I highly regard vendors that take responsibility for their products and make the effort to keep customers happy. I have just received a phone call from Shawn at Movies, CDs Games & More who's offered me a $10 refund for the unfortunate Blue ray disc, which I thought it was only fair. He mentioned that given my experience and that of a couple of other customers, they have decided to remove the product from Amazon, a fair move as well.

1.0 out of 5 stars Too many issues on too many BluRay players in the US February 17, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
The BluRay will simply do not run on any PS3 in the US, as well as a lot of BluRay players (in fact, all the players i could access to). Why? I quote an email i received from W.A.S.T.E. (the company behind the BluRay): "The Blu-Ray video was encoded at 25fps and remained this way as converting to 30fps drastically reduced the visual quality. This does mean however that some US region locked players may experience play back issues due to the standard setting of 60fps in the States."
But obviously this is a classic problem when editing videos, it only shows that this company has no experience or whatsoever when they target the international market. They just hide behind the "quality excuse" to justify a mistake they made.

W.A.S.T.E. has a name that fits them well: a big waste on time and money...
