For the remastering of Elton John's classic album, I can certainly tell a difference in the quality of the Blu-Ray and the mp3 download (a code is included) really shows the difference. The Blu-Ray version of Candle in the Wind made me legitimately cry, and the quality of the sound on this version really brings out the power and character of this Marylin Monroe tribute (imagine the tears I'd shed if the 1997 version for Princess Diana made it to Blu-Ray Audio!). I won't lie, Bennie and the Jets used to bore me to death. However, on this Blu-Ray iteration, the song really came to life. I felt like I was actually a part of the audience heard cheering during the song!
All in all, the work as a whole really comes out in the Blu-Ray version. The library of available Blu-Ray Audio albums is still generally small, but hopefully more works become available to this new format. I pray that this becomes the dominant way in which people listen to music in their homes (certainly a daunting task, due to the immense popularity of digital downloads). I hope to compare and review many of the other BR albums currently available, such as John Lennon's "Imagine" and Lenny Kravitz's "Are You Gonna Go My Way."
The extra tracks are a nice touch, but even for this Elton John, fan, they can be a bit much if you listen to all in one sitting. I did enjoy the live versions of the songs and they brought out how well of a show man Elton is and always has been.
If you don't already have this album, this is a must purchase. If you already have the previous remastered version and don't want to hear extra songs like the live performances, then you can skip this version.
