Rush: Moving Pictures Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.0 of 5

Though this is ostensibly an audio Blu-ray, there are around 13 minutes of bonus video also included on this Blu-ray (see the Supplements section below for full details on the actual content). Though delivered here via an AVC codec in 1080i and 1.33:1, this is pretty shabby looking video from the dawn of the home video age. This appears to have been shot with what was then probably a high-tech handheld home video camera, and the results are not very impressive. Incredibly soft and devoid of much color, visually this isn't much to look at, but as an historical record of the sessions that produced Moving Pictures, it's invaluable. "Vital Signs" is offered with a bunch of posterizing effects that actually make it seem like better quality than it probably is.



Rush: Moving Pictures Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

Wow. What more can one say about the quality of at least two of the three lossless tracks offered on this incredible (mostly) audio Blu-ray? Oddly, and for one of the very few times I've experienced this in my reviewing careers, the lossless LPCM 2.0 stereo fold down (24-bit/96kHz) sounds surprisingly pallid when stacked up against the two lossless 5.1 tracks. The low end is especially weak on this 2.0 mix, so if you have the ability to experience the surround mixes, by all means, do so. Two brilliant 5.1 options are offered, an LPCM 5.1 and a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1, and I personally would be hard pressed to find much if any difference between them. Both are presented with 24-bit/96kHz resolution, and the results are, to put it simply, astounding. The clarity and nuance that is now available to listeners of Moving Pictures presents whole new worlds of sonic activity. Multilayer synths which were before just kind of part of a muddled mass now ring out with singular clarity. Some of the sound effects utilized on a couple of the tunes are much more evident than they've ever been before. The utilization of the surround channels is brilliantly handled, and longtime fans of this album are in for some revelatory listening, as suddenly they'll find themselves centrally placed in an incredibly active soundfield. Fidelity is brilliant, with unbelievably facile dynamic range. As the boys of Rush tell us on one of the text entries on this Blu-ray, the increased resolution of Blu-ray audio means that this was actually mixed lower than traditional CDs or SACDs, so they recommend turning up the volume. I second that recommendation.
