Pink Floyd: The Dark Side of the Moon Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

If you came to this set for its video content, you, like several former members of Pink Floyd, should probably have your head examined. (I jest of course, but you get the idea). All of the video content on the Blu-ray is encoded via AVC in 1080i and in either a windowboxed 1.66:1 AR or 1.33:1. The best looking item here is the 2003 documentary, especially with regard to the then contemporary interview segments, which pop nicely and have good fine detail, accurate color and very good contrast. Some of the archival footage certainly shows its age, as is to be expected. The concert footage, which goes without saying is archival, is fairly ragged looking, with lots of grain, low contrast and omnipresent crush which makes a lot of what's going on very hard to make out. The Concert Screen Films are somewhere in the middle, with decent looking quality (especially with regard to the North American Tour) and okay color. There's nothing here that's going to set any videophile hearts on fire, but taken as the historically important items they are, these are interesting video supplements to what is after all an audiophile set.


Pink Floyd: The Dark Side of the Moon Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

As discussed above in the main body of the review, the Blu-ray offers three astoundingly good lossless audio options, all LPCM at 96kHz/24-bit. The three choices are 2.0 (the original stereo mix of the album done in 1973), 4.0 (the original quad mix of the album done in 1973) and a 5.1 repurposing originally done for the SACD released in 2003. I'll dispense with the stereo mix, which sounds fantastic, but doesn't offer the pleasures of either of the surround mixes. If you don't have the ability to listen to either of the surround mixes, you'll still probably immensely enjoy the 2.0 mix, which offers incredible fidelity and a really robust low end. But the two surround mixes are where this Blu-ray really shines. As I mention above in the main body of the review, I actually liked the more focused center that the 4.0 mix provides. Instruments are still clear and discretely positioned, but there just seemed to be a more concentrated midrange right in front of me that was more dispersed in the 5.1 mix. That said, the 5.1 mix is absolutely mind blowing in its surround activity. I frankly had never heard the SACD and so this was a new experience for me, and it brought a whole new level of appreciation for this album, which I obviously already held in very high esteem. Some of the surround placement is quite subtle, just a note here or a wash there, but there's some very fun and involving use of panning (listen to how the spoken elements drift across the soundfield at times), as well as some really incredible use of discrete channelization, of which the best example is no doubt the opening of "Money," where the different sound effects ping pong back and forth between the left and right channels. A close runner up (no pun intended) would be "On the Run," which has its stereo panning effects considerably amplified and extended. Fidelity is superb throughout all of these tracks. I was especially struck by how full the low end sounded without overpowering the rest of the mix. Vocals are really well balanced and nicely prioritized and the layering of the instruments is beautifully rendered. Any fans of Pink Floyd are going to be in sonic heaven when they listen to this Blu-ray.
