Styx: The Grand Illusion / Pieces of Eight Live Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Styx: The Grand Illusion/Pieces of Eight Live in Concert is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Eagle Vision and Eagle Rock Entertainment with an AVC encoded 1080i transfer in 1.78:1. While much of this live concert looks at least acceptable, there are several troubling artifacts that crop up with fair regularity, including posterizing (especially when the stage is bathed in blue light), banding and rampant mosquito noise, which seems to be mostly due to whatever camera is downstage right and frequently is shooting in the darkeness off to the stage left area. Moiré patterns also appear quite a bit on the projection screen behind the band. All is not bad news, however. Quite a bit of this concert looks quite sharp, with good, robust colors and some excellent fine detail in the close-ups (one kind of funny example: look at the perfectly capped teeth of several of the band members when they're singing).


Styx: The Grand Illusion / Pieces of Eight Live Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Styx: The Grand Illusion/Pieces of Eight Live in Concert follows Eagle Rock's standard operating procedure of offering three audio options, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround mix, an uncompressed Linear PCM 2.0 stereo mix, and a standard lossy Dolby Digital 5.1 mix. (Why does Eagle Rock always have the DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix the third choice on the audio options when you toggle through them?) Fidelity here is excellent, with really nice clarity, especially with regard to some of the retro synth sounds and the still excellent sounding vocals of the band members. The 5.1 mix isn't overly spacious or splayed, but there's nice separation of the instruments nonetheless. Styx doesn't really layer sounds to the hyperbolic levels of some of their seventies prog rock contemporaries, and that helps what is here to shine through with precision and clarity.
