2.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic concert but bluray quality is bad :(, November 19, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Coldplay: Live 2012 (CD/Blu-Ray) (Blu-ray)
LOVE LOVE Coldplay. I went to their San Jose concert back in April. The concert in this bluray was amazing and brings back memories when I saw them.

However, the bluray quality SUCKS. The video looks grainy. This is isn't bits and pieces, but the entire video on the bluray looks bad. Here I was thinking it was going to look absolutely fantastic in HD, but instead it's a huge let down. That and sometimes it sounds like they muted, or lowered the sound of the audience. That's so disappointing. The audience is part of the experience, no idea why they think it was beneficial to lower the sound of the audience.

Also, there's a lot of lights flashing everywhere and video fades. If only the video could have focused more on the band itself playing and no so much on flashy lights and audience shots. Oh and what's weird is that the bluray cover says "Violet Hill" is only on DVD, yet it's on the bluray? Maybe they added the video last minute?

I wish I could give it 5 stars, but unfortunately I can't :(

They meant "Violet Hill" is only on the video release, as opposed to the CD release I think.
