Sound City

 (2013)

Sound City Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Foo Fighters frontman and former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl directs this documentary about Los Angeles' Sound City Studios which specialised in analog recording. Following the closure of the studio in 2011 due to the growing demand for digital recording, Grohl assembled a number of artists, including Josh Homme, Trent Reznor, Paul McCartney and Stevie Nicks, to give interviews and performances while contributing to the creation of a new album.

For more about Sound City and the Sound City Blu-ray release, see Sound City Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Sound City Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

If you care to think about it, there's a sort of aesthetic dissonance in a film celebrating the joys of analog music production being shot digitally, but how many documentaries are made on 35mm these days? Regardless, Sound City generally looks great on Blu-ray, with a 1080p/AVC-encoded presentation that's true to its source material, whether it's the Red Epic footage of the talking-head interview segments, or the much rougher archival clips, pulled from ancient duped VHS tapes and other standard definition sources. The vintage stuff can't be improved much, but the interviews and recording sessions are sharp and clean, barring some light noise in the somewhat dark studio interiors. Fine facial and clothing detail is easily visible, and there's no evidence of over-sharpening, DNR, or harsh compression. There are a few moments when the color grading seems a little wonky—with too much yellow in the highlights—but otherwise the picture looks natural and dense, with balanced contrast. There are no real issues or distractions here.


Sound City Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

You'll find three audio options on the disc, an uncompressed Linear PCM 5.1 surround mix, a PCM 2.0 stereo fold-down, and a lossy Dolby Digital 5.1 track. For some reason, the stereo mix is the default—and it sounds fine for what it is—but if you've got a capable home theater set-up, you'll best be served by switching over to the multi-channel PCM track, which expands the audio with more pronounced bass and an effective use of the rear speakers for musical bleeding room. The audio for the interview segments is functionally straightforward—crisp, unmuffled, and always easy to understand—but the mix really shows its worth whenever there's music blaring. Crunchy guitars, tight snare hits, bright cymbal crashes, thumping kick drum—it's all rich and dynamic. The recording sessions at Grohl's 606 Studio sound fantastic too, pumped through the legendary Neve mixing console. The disc also includes plenty of subtitle options; see the top of the page for details.
