Re: Live in Dublin Sound

From the samples weeks ago I was using the word flat and lifeless and it looks like many people are confirming what I first heard. How about listening to the actual DVD/CD s before you pass judgment? :razz: And how about replacing the word " many" in your comment here with the words "a few" ? In th...

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

Amazon UK has stopped selling the 3cd/blu ray. This is what they say: Item Under Review This product is not currently offered by Amazon.co.uk because a customer recently told us that the item he or she received was not as described. We are working to resolve this as quickly as possible. In the meant...

Re: Live in Dublin Sound

I'll still get the 3cd/bluray but I'm in no hurry now after hearing all the sound comments. From the samples weeks ago I was using the word flat and lifeless and it looks like many people are confirming what I first heard.

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

This may have been discussed already, but when I looked at the CDs/DVD in Fopp today, it said that the DVD is NTSC. Does anyone know if it will play on Region 2 players? By the way, the DVD and Blue Ray versions look virtually identical (you have to look at the small print) so I suspect there will ...

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.

Re: New live video - Come Healing (Dublin 2013)

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