Hi Folks, FYI...
This is definetly on my "To Buy" list.
I thought the previous DVD-A (Audio, IIRC) was a killer test of one's sub, and having seen the Complex tour, I have been eagerly awaiting the DVD-A.
Finally. I didn't want to buy the CD because I was hoping they'd do a DVD-A version to go along with their debut.
Do you suppose DTS will have copies available at CEDIA to give away? Here's hoping they do
This album was already released in surround as a DD5.1 mix on the flip-side of the 'Complex' live concert DVD.
It's a shame that the lossless DVD-A version wasn't released on the same disc as the concert.
I've been told they won't be handing them out, but will have a few for press. You should be all set.
Thanks. I'm hoping so. Given how much I enjoy Audio, and having seen The Complex in person I'm very much looking forward to this disc.
If not, there's always release date
I saw The Complex, second row, great show.
I like Venus Hum a lot more than Tracy Bonham, though.
I saw them, but from the very very last row. Wonderful show, I Feel Loved with Venus Hum and Teenage Wastlend with Tracy Bonham were astounding live.
I bought this DVD-A at Fry's in Plano, TX today for $14.99. I'll get a change to listen to it (quietly ) once I get home to my apartment in Michigan tonight.
When I saw them in Albuquerque, I think Tracy opened the show with Zep's Black Dog. As she went through her set, I realized that she was someone I heard before but just didn't know her name.
But any artist that can rip through Black Dog, note for note on the violin, is A-OK in my book!
Definetly looking forwards to getting the DVD-A, as there previous DVD-A is a killer test for a sub.
I can't wait for this!!!!
I wasn't able to crank this one as it's late and I'm in an apartment, but the sonics are excellent of what I've hear so far. This one is a definite must buy.
Just three tracks, actually.
I got a chance after work to listen to this a bit louder. I listened to it all the way though. The sonics are excellent. The LFE is noticable, which gives the overall effect a nice tight pumping sound. I like it.
How's this DVD-A different from the BMG's first self-titled DVD-A? I love that disc, but if this is more of the same, I'll pass.
I don't yet own Complex, but I did attend the show when they were in town.
To me, the music on Audio vs. Complex was quite different. Sure, its BMG, so you get all manner of drums and percussion right up the kazooo, but Complex was straight ahead rock, with a full rock band. As such, I found the music more a hy-brid of BMG from Audio and a typical arena rock show, right down to a few classic rock covers.
And obviously the guest appearances from Tracy Bonham and Venus Humm add something not present on Audio.
I suppose you could get a pretty good feel for the music if you listen to the samples from the CD.
Now I need to get off my butt and go buy this!
Obviously, the DVD-A will sound better than the DVD-Video in 5.1, but is it worth the tradeoff. BMG is such a visual act, I would think going the concert route would be better in this case. I am just thinking out loud here. I am actually considering both.
I have both. The sonics are much better on the DVD-A (studio recording) vs. the DVD-V (live performance).
Stupid Amazon doesn't have this...
