The Raven That Refused to Sing Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

It might seem a little odd to give a video score to what is ostensibly a Blu-ray audio release, but there is a video component here, and it's rather well done. The disc features an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.78:1 (though some of the alternate version illustrations do not fill the entire 16:9 screen, something shared by the separate art gallery and photo gallery). As mentioned above, while the album plays, a really haunting series of images floats in and out of the moon, and while those are quite subtle, they lend a really nice ambience to the disc. The documentary is shot in black and white and has a purposefully grainy, almost 16mm, look to it, but it offers nice fine object detail in the close-ups and a decently sharp image given appropriate expectations.


The Raven That Refused to Sing Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

The Raven That Refused to Sing features three excellent audio options, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix, an LPCM 5.1 mix, and an LPCM 2.0 mix. As might be expected, I didn't hear much if any difference between the two 5.1 mixes. Wilson has very smartly provided discrete channelization for instruments (and vocals) in all of these tunes. Therefore, you'll hear something like a piano solo in "Luminol" clearly emanating from the right channels, while in a later tune what sounds like a Vocoder processed vocal by Wilson almost wafts from front to back in a kind of pulsating way. Fidelity here is exceptional, all the more remarkable in that Wilson takes so many disparate approaches in crafting his music. Some of the drumming is intentionally toward almost a punk rock side of things, with the drums tuned considerably higher than they might be in a more sedate jazz or pop setting. That gives some of the percussion an added burst of energy which comes through remarkably well. Some of the guitar work is similarly biting, but there's also plenty of mellow material here, including some pretty laid back vocal work as well as jazzy flute and sax solos, all of which is prioritized very well in the mix. I frankly only sampled the 2.0 mix since I was entranced by the 5.1 mixes. There's obviously a much narrow soundfield being exploited here, but perhaps surprisingly, there's still some pretty wide stereo separation a lot of the time and nothing sounds crowded.
