    Fleetwood Mac - The Dance

    Warner Vision/Warner Vision . R4 . COLOR . 106 mins . G . PAL

      Feature
    Contract

    Let me set the record straight, I'm not a huge fan of Fleetwood Mac and I only know a handful of their songs but I've decided to do this review for those interested in how the dvd rates overall. So bare with me.

      Video
    Contract

    Video quality on this dvd is exceptional. Their are numerous scenes with blue and red lighting that are crystal clear with no bleeding at all. Bright reds on video are a primary source of color bleed and dvd shows just how good the format is when using high quality as the video source. Blacks are nice and dark.

    The 106 minute disc has an average bit rate of roughly 5.2 and hardly varies from there throughout the concert.

      Audio
    Contract

    Hehe, a smile comes to my face when telling you about the audio on this dvd. The track contains something I like alot in music, nice strong bass. From the outset we get a strong beat leading into the first song and you can feel it, even without a subwoofer. I liked this, I liked this alot.

    The PCM track was tough. Channel seperation wasn't that much there, given that this track is only PCM stereo so once again, as with the Eric Clapton disc, you'll need to enable the fancy dsp modes of your receiver to get any action in the rears. As with any PCM track, it is noticably louder than a downmixed Dolby digital track.

    The 5.1 dolby digital mix is nice, very nice. Crowd effects are there in the rears, seems to be a common thing on these 5.1 concert dvd's, and once again, the channel seperation is not really left to right but rather front to back. You ARE sitting in the audience, which is where you should be placed and it works.

      Extras
    Contract

    Animated menus are used, basically each band member fading in and out of the main menu. Song lyrics are on the alternate audio tracks.

      Overall  
    Contract

    If you're a fan of the Mac you'll enjoy this disc. Their songs on stage are as good as those they would have recorded in a studio, they perform well live. For the price, you're getting a best of album with the video to go with it.
