A Concert by the Lake Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Shot on high-definition video and given a 1080i/AVC encode, A Concert By The Lake is as clear as unmuddied waters on Blu-ray. I've reviewed a number of similar concert discs recently, and this one has been the best of the bunch in terms of picture quality. For these kinds of releases, it's not unusual to see errant aliasing, weak contrast, and angry swarms of video noise, but this is one is largely free of any compression-related problems, has inky and consistent black levels, and looks quite clean throughout. The only real oddity that I noticed was a kind of rippling mirage effect, presumably caused by whatever hidden heaters were keeping the performers warm on stage. Not a transfer issue, obviously, but it does look somewhat strange the first few times you see it. There are a few slightly soft shots here and there, but in general, the image is nice and crisp. Sharpness indicators like skin textures and fine clothing details are easily apparent in close-ups, and the picture rarely looks overly—i.e., artificially—edgy. Colors are also natural, and the picture is splashed by the vivid reds and blues and greens of the stage lights. Overall, the image looks as classy as the audience's gussied up attire.

Do note that as it was nearly impossible to capture screenshots in 1080i, all of the stills included in this review were captured in 720p and do not represent the transfer's full visual quality.


A Concert by the Lake Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

For some reason, the disc defaults to a Linear PCM 2.0 stereo mix—which is strong—but the meatiest offering here is its DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track. This soundboard mix is tight, clean, and undeniably "live," with an open, airy quality that captures the concert's outdoors ambience. That's not to say it isn't grounded, as the various instruments all have heft and presence, from Eric Clapton's sweetly overdriven solos to the rock solid bass, which is deep and defined. The horn section is crisp, Paul Carrack's organ gently weeps, the acoustic guitars are bright but never brash, and the vocals are powerful and poised. It's all mixed together well, with ample distinction between instruments and a constant and effective use of the surround channels to put you right in the middle of the crowd. The drums could be punchier at times, but other than that, I really have no complaints. The disc also includes a lossy Dolby Digital 5.1 track.
