Steve Kilbey Live (Plus 1/MVD DVD)
C+ Sound: C Extras: C- Concert: C+
looking forward to Steve Kilbey’s solo concert on DVD, but the sound is a
wreck, but more on that below. From what
I can hear, it sounds like it might have been half decent as he performs:
Is Your Love In Vain?
Almost With You
Civil War Lament
12) Forever Lasts For Nothing
13) Don’t Look Back
14) Under The Milky Way
15) Hotel Womb
18) One Inch Rock
19) Just For You
sing, play and has good material, but this DVD cannot deliver it well. Maybe the Blu-ray will fare better. So what’s wrong?
anamorphically enhanced 1.78 X 1 image is on the soft side and though color can
be good, while the Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo sound is a compressed mess, with
the singing and even rare talking very compressed, boxy and narrow. What happened? It must be an encoding error or the soundman
should be banned from the business. Four
brief clip sections are the only extras.
save anything about The Church until we get material from them to cover, but
this is not a good disc and is best skipped.
