However, the best part of the CD for me was the energy of the crowd and how the band seemed to respond. Matt is on fire, and you can tell Dom and Chris are having a blast. Muse have called this show their best of the tour, and I can see why.
One last thing - get the blu ray if you can! I got the DVD, and while it's still wonderful, I'd really appreciate the phenomenal 4K quality.
The 2nd Law has not been my favorite Muse CD, but after viewing the concert I want to give some of the songs that I tended to pass up on the CD more play. Follow Me, Guiding Light, Explorers, and Panic Station were more commercial than I tend to like, but I enjoyed them very much as part of this concert. Supremacy, Knights of Cydonia (with it's haunting harmonica intro), Animals, Follow Me, Hysteria, Feeling Good, Madness, Time is Running Out, Supermassive Black Hole, and Uprising were my favorites in the Rome concert. Time is Running Out has to be one of the best concert songs of all time.
I saw Muse perform live at Uncasville, CT this spring with the same pyramid set they used in the Extras songs; having a recording of this set is a particular treat for me. Stockholm Syndrome sounded edgy and raw compared with the Rome concert. The use of the pyramid with the haunting blue eye is visually captivating. Unsustainable opened the US Arena shows and the song and light show exemplifies Muse's creative range. We also get to see Chris sing lead on his song, Liquid State. The final Extra is a short film called The Road, set to the music of Animals, it is a look at the roadie pre- and post-production activities that goes into the concert experience. Don't miss any of the extras.
The editing of the concert is less frantic than for the H.A.A.R.P.Read more ›
The images are stunning, nothing else is comparable to this for clarity, detail and definition, also with low lights.
The DTS HD-MA 5.1 audio track is powerful, precise and well calibrated. Super-highly recommended!!!
So I couldn't wait for the tour DVD to be released. Turns out this is what we get for The 2nd Law tour, their Rome Olympic Stadium show. After watching it I was slightly disappointed if I'm being honest. Their set was great, but the pyramid that they used for the US dates absolutely can't be touched. And they incorporated the lasers. That was next level stuff and I popped in the DVD hoping to relive just a little of what I did that night. The closest we get on this disc are a few US dates that utilized the pyramid. Those few numbers felt like a completely different show to me so I wish they would have recorded a full US date to better capture the experience.
I also didn't like the sound editing. Sometimes Matt sounded a bit muted, especially compared to the tour CD which sounds a lot better. He sounded amazing in person. My live Muse experience was just a perfect night that can't be replicated, even with this Blu-Ray. YouTube fan videos don't scratch the itch. The only thing left is for them to crank out new music and tour again! I'll be there with bells on and I might try to catch two shows. I hope they consider releasing another blu ray with the pyramid but I'm not holding my breath.

Amazing bluray and CD set of a band that on this concert seemed to be at the top of the world. Who would expect that they would top this with their next album and tour? Read morePublished 1 day ago by gekonst
Boy, oh boy this recording is tight (DVD-CD combo pack). The Dolby 5.1 mix (with my 15" subwoofer) makes it sound like I'm right there at Olympic Stadium!! Read morePublished 18 days ago by Doug 2112
