The Cure: Trilogy

 (2002)

The Cure: Trilogy Blu-ray delivers truly amazing video and audio in this absolutely must-own Blu-ray release

The Cure has quietly emerged as one of the most resilient bands of the post-punk era via a heady blend of a dark, moody stage persona and catchy synth-pop. Recorded live at Berlin's Tempodrom in 2002, the band plays from the albums "Pornography," "Disintegration" and "Blood Flowers" on three successive nights. Tracks included are "A Short Term Effect," "100 Years," "The Hanging Garden," "Siamese Twins," "Plainsong" and more.

For more about The Cure: Trilogy and the The Cure: Trilogy Blu-ray release, see the The Cure: Trilogy Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 5.0 out of 5.



The Cure: Trilogy Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Presented in as aspect ratio of 1.78:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC, and granted a 1080i "live" transfer The Cure: Trilogy – Pornography, Disintegration, Bloodflowers arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Eagle Rock Entertainment.

As expected, Eagle Rock Entertainment have put together a fantastic package for Trilogy. The AVC-encoded transfer is sharp, with a near perfect contrast, and a color-scheme that is impossible not to admire. The blacks here are lush and well-saturated, the blues and reds piercing, and the rest of the colors covering the spectacularly decorated stage simply terrific-looking (the lighting for each of the three legs in Trilogy is indeed very effective). This being said, there really isn't any substantial difference in quality between Pornography, Disintegration, and Bloodflowers. Each of them looks stunning in 1080i and it is quite obvious that the master elements Eagle Rock Entertainment had to work with were in perfect condition.

Motion-judder is practically non-existent. There are multiple cameras that capture the stage from all sorts of different angles, and whether they focus on Robert Smith's face or the enthusiastic crowd the image remains plausibly stable (there aren't any disturbing contrast issues here that I could detect). As mentioned above, lighting is a key element in Trilogy and I am happy to report that the Blu-ray transfer captures the rich spectrum of colors used by the tech crew very well. Finally, neither macro-blocking nor edge enhancement would affect your viewing experience. (Note: This is a Region-Free release which means that you will be able to play it on your PS3 or SA regardless of your geographical location).


The Cure: Trilogy Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

There are three different audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: Music: DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 (96KHz/24-Bit), Music: Dolby Digital 5.1, and Music: LPCM. I opted for the DTS-HD MA 5.1 track and did random comparisons with the other two for the purpose of this review.

The audio treatment Eagle Rock Entertainment have secured for the Trilogy will surely delight fans of The Cure. The DTS-HD MA 5.1 track is potent, with plenty of activity in the rear channels and, more importantly, well balanced. Robert Smith's voice comes off the speakers with great resonance and so are the wailing guitars of Perry Bamonte and Simon Gallup. The bass is full and rich – the energetic openings for "The Hanging Garden", "A Strange Day", and 39 are a great example for the type of audio presentation Blu-ray is capable of delivering. Superb!

As I mentioned earlier, I did perform random comparisons between the DTS-HD MA 5.1 track and the Dolby Digital 5.1 and LPCM tracks. To make a long story short, there have been certain releases by Eagle Rock Entertainment in the past where I felt that the LPCM track was quite effective in improving certain balance issues. Fortunately enough, there is nothing that needs to be improved here. Furthermore, neither the LPCM track nor the Dolby Digital 5.1 track matches the quality of sound introduced by the DTS-HD MA 5.1 track. Take for example the intoxicating "Watch Me Fall" and listen to it with each of the three mixes. The depth and fullness of sound the DTS-HD MA 5.1 track delivers isn't even remotely noticeable via the LPCM and Dolby Digital 5.1 mixes. Quite frankly, if you cannot hear the enormous gap in quality between the DTS-HD MA 5.1 and the other two mixes on this Blu-ray disc, then there is something terribly wrong with your audio system. To sum it all up, The Cure: Trilogy is undoubtedly the best live show Eagle Rock Entertainment have released thus far. Simply terrific!
