Adele: Live At The Royal Albert Hall 2011 (Blu-ray/CD) 2011 DTS-HD Master Audio

This product is currently sold out.

Live At The Royal Albert Hall was recorded on September 22, 2011 at the height of what has been an amazing year for Adele. Available on DVD and Blu-ray, "Live At The Royal Albert Hall" features the full 90 minute concert performance, plus special behind the scenes footage shot throughout the day leading up to the concert. Rovi Rating:  

The package also includes an exclusive live CD of the entire show. This is the first time all of Adele's hits and best loved songs will be on one CD plus her stunning covers of Bonnie Raitt's "If I Can't Make You Love Me" and The Steeldrivers "If It Hadn't Been For Love"

Adele Live at The Royal Albert Hall is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Columbia Records with an AVC encoded 1080i transfer in Widescreen 1.78:1 Aspect Ratio. Colors are generally excellent, with bold and bright saturation and black levels are above average. 

Luckily the lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix included on the Blu-ray is superb for the most part. Directionality is quite well handled (listen for example to the glockenspiel patch that starts out "Hometown Glory" and how discretely positioned in the right channels it is). Adele's voice is captured in all of its singularity, and the balance between the singer and the band is very well mixed. The one problem here is the overwhelming sound of the audience, which completely subsumes Adele and her band at times. It's interesting to compare the mix on the Blu-ray with that on the included CD, for the CD mixes the audience much further back, allowing more sonic presence for the singer and her band (this is not to say that the audience is inaudible on the CD, for it most certainly is, especially in the "singalong" moments). Fidelity is superb on the DTS track, with ample low end and great dynamic range.
