This is a review of the Blu-Ray version of GYBR
on February 5, 2015
This is the BY FAR the best Blu-Ray audio DVD I have heard so far. Everyone reading this is most likely familiar with the musical content of this recording, so my comments are primarily about the BD release. When that synth in "Funeral for Friend/Love Lies Bleeding" starts with its initial "wah wah"...sheesh!!! The hairs on my arms just rise and begin swaying with the music. The vocals in "Jamaica JO" sound like Elton is sitting in the room with you. The separation (in 5.1) is wonderful throughout the disc. A friend has the DVD-Audio version of this album, but I propose that this sounds EVEN better. The strings are "stringy", the guitars are up front without being in your face, the harmonies are almost beautiful. If you have a Blu-Ray player and a half-decent home audio system, this will blow you away. Give your old CD to a deserving friend, because this is THE definitive version of GYBR...so far. Included with this DVD is a coupon for a free MP3 download of the entire DVD; a nice offering from the manufacturer, but wholly unnecessary compared to the Blu-Ray audio. If you love, or even like, GYBR, you owe it to yourself to buy this. Most highly recommended.
