Re: 5.1 DVD-Audio new [re: diamondogz74]  

Well, it's nice to know that 5.1 DVD Audio magically restores forgotten lyrics and removes any uncomfortable ad lib moments. Does he dance better on DVD too?

I've seen him live and it's night and day but I think there's a reason why there's so little live material released. As I said in a review on Netflix for the Reality DVD: "at best, his live recordings simply make you wish you could have been there to see what it was really like. At their worst, they make you glad you weren't." Some people just don't translate well in certain settings and across certain mediums.

Re: 5.1 DVD-Audio [re: Monkeyboy]  

Well it must be a matter of taste, because I have recordings of concerts from all eras and have always found them to be great listening experiences, I also have dvd's of most tours too. I probably play the live stuff as much as the studio albums.

I can see your point to a degree, but none the less, I like his live albums, be them official releases or boots, In my opinion some boots are better, In particular Wealth and Authority, this is after all only your opinion, btw, I'd love to read your Netflix review, could you link it please?

Re: 5.1 DVD-Audio [re: Monkeyboy]  

5.1 can restore a lot of the live experience. the power of good sound is horribly underestimated. one great improvement is, that the audience is rather behind you and you have much clearer stereo speakers without losing the live mood. the sound itself is better than in the concert anyway since concert always are at the limit of the possible volume outside the sprectrum the speakers work correctly. this of course is as well a creative decision - like every DVD. so if you feel like crappy sound and getting spilled with beer, having some people with afros standing in front of you, it is unlikely that you will get that, since the director is probably going for a different kind of experience and also a dvd never will be enough to capture such moments. but any kind of sound problems can be solved better than in stereo - even without significantly altering the footage, simply by changing the importance of different sound events - mixing him in less loud in case he completly misses the right note, making an instrument more prominent if an other one did not have the right impact.

Re: 5.1 DVD-Audio [re: th0mas]  

He seems to be referring to the actual performance, rather than sound quality. I have always though of Bowie as someone who is great in front of an audience.

I agree - if you're in the audience. It's simply my opinion that his performance has never translated well in any medium that I've seen. It comes of as either half-assed or too hammy but the fact that it works in person is what ultimately matters. I'm not dissing him in any way here I just don't think that his live material is that great in recorded form. Maybe it's just me, I'm generally not a fan of live music anyways.

Yeah, I can understand that, I like it myself, but have known people who think of it as being inferior.
If you ever have the chance, try and see his concert from Loreley Germany in 1996, one of the best ever.
