Asia: Fantasia Live In Tokyo

 (2007)

Asia: Fantasia Live In Tokyo Blu-ray delivers stunningly beautiful video and mediocre audio in this must-own Blu-ray release

Filmed live in Tokyo, this energetic concert features the four original members of 1980s supergroup Asia on their 2007 reunion world tour celebrating their 25th anniversary. Geoff Downes, Steve Howe, Carl Palmer and John Wetton play some of their biggest hits, including "Only Time Will Tell," "Heat of the Moment," "Sole Survivor," "The Heat Goes On," "One Step Closer" and more. A 40-minute interview with the band members is included.

For more about Asia: Fantasia Live In Tokyo and the Asia: Fantasia Live In Tokyo Blu-ray release, see Asia: Fantasia Live In Tokyo Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 5.0 out of 5.



Asia: Fantasia Live In Tokyo Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Asia: Fantasia Live In Tokyo powers on to the Blu-ray format in a stunning 1080i/MPEG-4 AVC encode, framed at a 1:78:1 aspect ratio. Did I say stunning? If that's not good enough, how about perfect! Images are clean as a whistle, with no digital artifacts, compression, or pesky compression issues. Black levels are deep and inky black, shadow detail is excellent; I was able to see distinct shapes in the crowd amidst the complete darkness of the concert hall. Contrast is excellent, with very white whites that were never overblown. Every shade in the grayscale shines through boldly and accurately. Colors are very well saturated, but the simplicity of the lighting design does not allow for a tremendous amount of vivid color. Skin tones look natural and detail is first rate; skin details and clothing are exceptionally rendered. This production deserves the highest possible score for picture quality. Eagle Rock Entertainment has hit a home run with this release; congratulations are in order!


Asia: Fantasia Live In Tokyo Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.5 of 5

As enthusiastic as I am about the video, I am less so about the audio. Asia: Fantasia Live In Tokyo offers three audio tracks to choose from. A 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio track at a 24/48 kHz, a 5.1 Dolby Digital track encoded at 640kbps and a LPCM stereo track at 24bit resolution. I found some serious balance and equalization issues in the 5.1 mixes that seemed to be caused by the addition of surround channels. The keyboards were far too loud and forward in the mix, which spilled over into the surrounds. This covered up the drums, guitar, and made the bass sound muddy and undefined. Worse, a healthy dose of equalization applied to the mid bass and lower midrange caused the complete sonic presentation to lose its definition. The assignment of instruments within the acoustic space seemed constricted to the space between my speakers, with no information at the edges of the mix. There was no air between them, which turned the entire spatial picture into mush. With the frontal sound stage wrapping into the surrounds, everything turned into a gigantic auditory mess. Vocals suffered intelligibility issues every time the keyboards kicked in.

I listened to all three of the tracks, and, surprisingly, I preferred the stereo LPCM track. Almost all the issues I outlined above disappeared completely with this track. Even the keyboard balance issues were reduced to a point where much of the sonic detail that was previously hidden suddenly revealed itself. To put it frankly, mixing and equalization issues ruined this otherwise fine performance. Fortunately, the LPCM track helps to remedy these issues.
