Leonard Cohen: Songs from the Road

 (2008)

Leonard Cohen: Songs from the Road Blu-ray offers solid video and superb audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

Following the celebration of his 40th year as a Columbia artist in 2007 and coinciding with his induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in March 2008, Cohen thrilled his fans by announcing his first tour dates in 15 years. He s gone on to play the most prestigious and beautiful venues in virtually every corner of the globe, mesmerizing and charming audiences with performances that were hailed as some of the best of his career. When legend Cohen takes to the stage, raved Ireland s The Independent (June 2008), it s no less than a cultural event of Biblical dimensions.
One dozen of Leonard Cohen s most famous songs from those recent world tour performances at auditorium halls, festivals, arenas, and stadiums from Tel Aviv to London, from across Europe to the California desert and his native Canada are now collected on SONGS FROM THE ROAD. The 12-song program filmed in high definition and recorded in 5.1 surround sound will be issued in three separate packages: CD+DVD in a beautiful softpak with a 12-page book, Blu-ray, and 2-LP 180-gram audiophile vinyl in a gatefold jacket.

Leonard Cohen: Songs from the Road Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

The good news is most fans will probably flock to this release for its audio rather than its video. The bad news is the video is pretty soft looking, with some attendant blooming, perhaps due to over aggressive stage lighting, which makes the background curtains flare in a variety of colors throughout Cohen's worldwide trek. The Blu-ray is presented with an AVC encode, in 1080i and 1.78:1, and while close-ups deliver some nice fine detail and decent contrast, mid-range and far-range shots are really a muddle, with faces turning to amorphous goo and detail all but disappearing. The film segues in and out of black and white sequences, and those sport good contrast and excellent black levels, and indeed the black levels in the color sequences are also excellent. But more often than not the bright orange, blue and other lit colored curtains flare into blooming, almost threatening to take over the musicians standing in front of them.


Leonard Cohen: Songs from the Road Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Luckily, Songs from the Road is presented with a sterling Dolby TrueHD 5.1 (96kHz, 24-bit) mix which offers Cohen's magnetic performances in beautiful and heartfelt fidelity. Cohen deep voice comes through loudly and clearly, despite the fact that Cohen is really not much of a singer, and the band is presented with excellent separation and with great surround utilization. Cohen's guitar and harmonica sound fantastic, and the backing band and three backup singers are offered with brilliant, distortion free fidelity and excellent dynamic range, at least insofar as this kind of mellow-skewed set of tunes allows. These are some very eloquent performances, and the Dolby TrueHD 5.1 mix presents them with crystal clarity. There is also an LPCM 2.0 lossless stereo fold down available.
