Front the Front Row (of the parking lot maybe).
This title is a DVD-Audio title, so one would naturally expect a level a quaility that justify the media, but with that in mind, the only thing that comes to mind here is "SAD". The source recording this disk is made from would not even qualify for a bad bootleg in the days of vinyl. It is liken to listening to the concert from the foyer of the auditorium while waiting in line to buy a beer. While I would love to also critique the performance of music on this disc... I can't make out enough of it to be fair to the musicians involved (if you think I am exaggerrating go ahead and buy this one). This title truly sounds as though they started from a single stereo (or even mono) recording, and a poor one, masked in reverb with little to no dynamic range. Then a ton of low bass EQ, and a bunch of even more deeply reverbed material thrown into the surround channels. Now granted I can count the number of DVD-A titles I have to date on my fingers, I have thousands of LPs, and hundreds of CDs and this title ranks the lowest quality recording I have heard to date (with maybe the possibility of an old 1969 vinyl bootleg of a Stones concert - "Stoned in Europe"). The fact that SilverLine Records is marketing this to owners of new and expensive DVD-A players starved for material, with claims of "stunning 5.1 surround sound" on their packaging, is shameful.
