The picture quality is very strong. Contrast is impressive, clarity very good and detail excellent. The color-scheme is also terrific. Vibrant reds, blues, yellows, greens, blacks and whites are everywhere. The lighting in particular is very effective – there are absolutely no shadow issues to report. Indeed, even if you are looking only at the screencaptures we have provided with the review, you should be able to tell that Elton 60: Live at Madison Square Garden is a very special release. 

To sum it all up, Universal Music have done an excellent job with the Blu-ray release of Elton 60: Live at Madison Square Garden, and I am convinced that fans of the British singer will be thrilled with it. 

There are two audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: English PCM 5.1 (48kHz, 24-bit) and English PCM Stereo. I opted for the English PCM 5.1 track and later on did a few random comparisons for the purpose of this review.
