Beats, Rhymes, & Life: The Travels of a Tribe Called Quest Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Beats, Rhymes, & Life: The Travels of a Tribe Called Quest debuts on Blu-ray with another solid 1080p Sony Blu-ray transfer. The movie's primary digital photography translates well to Blu-ray; though noise spikes at times and the image sports a generally glossy overlay, it also yields good stable details and colors. Clarity is strong, which gives way to positive facial and clothing textures, not to mention fairly intricate detailing on urban surfaces such as brick walls and murals. Colors fare very well, whether neutral "urban jungle" shades of gray or brightly-colored clothes. Black levels are generally sound, presenting minimal-to-no crush. Flesh tones appear accurate, too. Blocking and banding are largely absent. The picture contains a good amount of archival footage, much of it coming in the form of years-old music video clips. These, of course, have their visual and technical limitations and don't stand up to today's standards; that said, they do not factor into the overall score. For the most part, this is a solid high definition transfer. It's certainly not eye candy sort of material, but fans will appreciate the clarity and stability the Blu-ray disc yields.


Beats, Rhymes, & Life: The Travels of a Tribe Called Quest Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Beats, Rhymes, & Life: The Travels of a Tribe Called Quest features a positive and energetic DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack. The only real "flaw" comes in the form of dialogue clarity over the stage microphones during tour stops. Otherwise, this one is excellent all around. The various cuts of the group's songs sound fantastic. Clarity is magnificent from the top down, even in the deliberately scratchy "Can I Kick It." Spacing is seamless, surrounds are supportive, and the bass is wonderfully heavy and tight. Ambience is first-rate, too, notably in the various exterior city shots where the general din of city life really springs to life. Dialogue is clear and focused, save for the aforementioned trouble spots. This one's pretty basic; it's mostly dialogue and music, with the latter really jumping to life and defining the track. Fans of A Tribe Called Quest will love this one.
