Re: Live in Dublin Sound

The sound on my copy is just like the bits and pieces we heard here... I don't think that is a good thing. The sound is consistent all the way through the 3 cd set, but it sounds lifeless, flat, messy. A missed opportunity. How can that be when people who have the set say it sounds great? Someone i...

Re: The Dublin live BluRay/DVD/3CD now announced

Not crazy about the digipak thing. I thought this was going to be an actual boxset given that it's 4 discs.That would have been a lot classier than a big fat digipak.

Bird On A Wire. The recording still sounds incredibly flat and lifeless to me. Maybe it's just me? http://www.deathandtaxesmag.com/231462/leonard-cohen-premieres-bird-on-the-wire-live-from-dublin/ It's not just you! There's a lack of atmosphere, a huge stereo separation and the audience is quite di...

Re: Live in Dublin Sound

If the mix has been somewhat corrected on iTunes now, what is happening to all of the original DVD's which are, no doubt in warehouses ready to be dispensed for pre-orders? I would imagine these are pressed way in advance. Maybe this was not the best concert to be chosen given all the background no...

There must be something that we're all missing here because it's just not possible to listen to it the way it is and think that it sounds good enough to be officially released that way.

Strange logic putting out a low resolution video to create buzz for a new album!

Glad I am not the only one seeing this. I really hope that won't be an issue on the DVD!
Is this an official release of the video? If so is this how they choose to advertise the new set with lousy audio and out of sync vocals? I don't get it.

I just watched the video for Everybody Knows. The sound is terrible.

I think they could have chosen a better video than that as a teaser.

Re: Upcoming Leonard Cohen Live DVD

I'm really surprised that the Dublin set is coming out so soon after Popular Problems was released. It's almost unheard of to release a new studio album and then a few months later follow it with a 4 disc set. You would think that the record company would want all of the focus on Popular Problems fo...

It is "than" not "then." Never use "then" unless it relates to a sequence/period of time.
Thanks for the info. Than I won't do that again.
