Technical Aspects of the discs reviewed by Andy Hall
The video ratios on these disc presentations differ between the two;the Japanese concert on disc 1 is presented in non-anamorphicwidescreen, whereas the London concert on disc 2 is presented in 4x3full screen. Both concerts feature very similar lighting, with darkstages bathed only in primary coloured lights of blues, reds andgreens. Although this in no way falls apart the way that VHS would doin these situations, it’s not the most impressive video quality everseen on DVD. However, as it isn’t really the video that is of the mostinterest here, an acceptable-only quality will suffice.
Once again the audio presentation varies between the discs, as disc1 provides a choice between Dolby Digital 5.0 and Stereo 2.0 tracks,whereas disc 2 only provides a stereo 2.0 track. Unfortunately the menulayout for disc 1 makes selecting the desired track a confusingbusiness, as it is buried inside the song (or chapter) selection menu.
The tracks themselves are both of good quality, though perhaps acriticism of the 2.0 track on disc 2 is that it can sound occasionallyslightly harsh. The 5.0 track is definitely preferable on disc 1, as itprovides much more depth and involvement, especially on tracks such as Elektrik.
(The audio score of 8 is an average of 7 for the 2.0 stereo tracks and 9 for the 5.0 track).
