John Legend: Live at the House of Blues Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

John Legend Live at the House of Blues grooves onto Bluray in a 1080i/MPEG-2 encode, framed in a 1:78:1 video window, that overall is quite good, but not without some small issues that keep it from getting a perfect score. This was Sony/BMG's very first music release, and they did a slam bang job in getting it just right for the Bluray format. Since it was shot using HD cameras, there are no film related issues such as pops, speckles, or grain to dog the presentation. Black levels are very deep and inky, and shadow detail is excellent. Contrast is perfect, as Legend's white suite looks plain white, and not bleached white. Images are always sharp and very detailed, as we can see the sweat from Legends forehead, fine details in everyone's clothes, on instruments, and in the backgrounds of the stage itself. Colors are vivid, well saturated, but I did find some chroma noise in one scene emanating from a single red splash can. It lasted just a second, and most would not even notice it. Reds and Blues are the dominate colors used, but for this live concert there is no fancy light show, waving or dancing strobes, gobo's or splashes, as Legend is the show. There is no compression issues such as micro blocking or pixelation. The one problem that I did find is not compression related, but source related. Either a certain roving camera, or a couple of stationary cameras (I couldn't tell which); I consistently found video noise in low light situations. Even though other cameras were operating under the same lighting conditions, they didn't exhibit this artifact. You also didn't see this same effect using other camera shots in even darker conditions, so it had to be limited to a single, or a couple of cameras. It was noticeable enough to knock the video score down a notch. Overall this was a very good looking release.


John Legend: Live at the House of Blues Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

Sony/BMG gives "Live at the House of Blues" and excellent audio treatment in the form of a terrific sounding uncompressed 5.1 PCM mix at 24/48khz bit and sample rate. Also featured are a lossy 5.1 Dolby Digital track, and a stereo PCM track encoded at 24/48khz bit and sample rate. This is a very tight and well crafted mix, one that was a total pleasure as an audio engineer to listen to. Unlike most of the rock based concerts I have reviewed in the past, vocals here are very well captured, and never drowned out by other elements in the mix. It was the only thing in the center speaker, which allowed me to understand every word of Legends lyrics, and the varying textures of his voice from the soft breathy lows(volume wise), to the growly full bodied crescendos. The piano is well captured, spreading nicely through the frontal sound stage, with the left channel carrying middle C and downward, and the right carrying middle C and upwards. Background vocals are well recorded, and give you the ability to hear the vocal textures of both the alto and soprano singers, without congealing them together as one voice. The B3 sample on the keyboards sounds really convincing, as was the Leslie speaker emulation which revealed a nice tremolo and chorus effect perfectly. The bass was tight, very clean, and often flapped my pant legs with its power. The front sound staging is kept more towards the middle, leaving the edges of the mix to blend with the music pulled into the surrounds. This gives a nice "U" like sound field that I found myself sitting pleasantly in the middle of.

A quick comparison between the Dolby Digital track and the PCM track revealed sound stage differences, with the lossy track sound field sounding a little truncated next to the full bodies rather forward sounding two channel PCM track. The stereo PCM track pulls everything closer to my listening seat, and sounded much like the left and right channels of the multichannel PCM mix.
