Sting's contribution appears flawless he sings the songs to letter (his voice sounds great) while playing meaningful bass. There are also passages where he really leans into the bass running some serious notes. Andy Summers covers the gamut from down right fierce to subtle and melodic, incredible multifaceted playing on his part. If you are familiar with The Police music then you know Stewart Copeland plays a gazillion notes using his entire kit. Mega fills, accents and poly rhythms etc. at sometime blazing speeds. In this show he does not seem to miss a nuance and looks like an Einstein professor type while doing it, awesome! They really look like they are having a good time playing together.
The staging and lighting is no nonsense, clean set up and well lit. Good collective footage of the band. Also, the photographer captures each musician realistically and focuses long enough for you to get a good understanding of their individual contributions. The video quality is excellent. The extras are shot well and give you a decent behind the scene understanding of how the band interacts.
The audio quality is superb. It is potent and natural, crisp highs, clear mid range and the low frequencies are done exceptionally well. Notes from the bass guitar and kick drum/s (when Stewart throws with the double pedals) are deep and articulate. The surround mix is tasteful making for a realistic concert experience. The CD recording of the show included with the package also has great audio quality.
Whether you are or not a Police fan this is an excellent concert blu ray to have in your library. It is so nicely done that you will watch it time and again, use it to entertain and as reference material.
My only splitting hairs criticism is that the audio is not raw umcompressed PCM (it is DOLBY TRUEHD); they say that DOLBY TRUE HD and DTS HD MASTER are as good as PCM in theory but in practice PCM sound better because it is uncompressed, very high bit-rate and is not a variable bit-rate codec.
Overall a superb purchase! Nice to see THE POLICE reunite for tour! Hope they do it again!Certifiable-Deluxe (Blu-Ray)
