The White Stripes: Under Great White Northern Lights

 (2009)

The White Stripes: Under Great White Northern Lights Blu-ray offers solid video and superb audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release

Documents the 2007 White Stripes tour across Canada. Hitting every province and territory, Jack and Meg White took their art-blues-rock to Iqaluit and Charlottetown, Edmonton and Toronto. The cameras not only document each unique concert experience but also capture the inner life of this mysterious musical duo.

For more about The White Stripes: Under Great White Northern Lights and the The White Stripes: Under Great White Northern Lights Blu-ray release, see the The White Stripes: Under Great White Northern Lights Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Starring: Jack White
Director: Emmett Malloy

The White Stripes: Under Great White Northern Lights Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Malloy intentionally has created a grimy, gritty look for large portions of this film, so trying to compare this Blu-ray's AVC encoded 1080p image (in a 1.78:1 aspect ratio) to the latest shiny summer blockbuster is unfair and unwarranted. The black and white footage is often extremely grainy, with low contrast. Most of the color footage is skewed toward the red side of the spectrum, as you will see from some of the screen captures included with the review. Both black and white and color segments also sport softness most of the time. What results is a visual experience completely in tune with the Stripes' down and dirty, unpretentious musical identity. This is not a glossy, surface deep documentary, and Malloy's choices here augment both the personal side of the Whites, warts and all, as well as the concert performances. This is certainly not Blu-ray reference material in and of itself, but it perfectly recreates Malloy's vision, for better or worse.


The White Stripes: Under Great White Northern Lights Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

The two lossless audio options, DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and LPCM 2.0, are amazingly clear and robust, with astounding fidelity and snap. The only problem here is Jack White's often mumbling style with his lyrics, which render large portions of the concert material unintelligible. Unfortunately there are no subtitles available to help decipher what exactly he's singing about. But the music, often very spare and open, is presented with brilliant clarity and expert directionality. The larger concert venues are extremely well mixed, with wonderful use of surround channels to recreate the hall ambience and crowd sounds. The music is always front and center in the mix, both literally and figuratively, with the audience reactions never overpowering the duo. Some of the additional acts, like bagpipers and fiddlers, also sound wonderful. Some may not like the intentionally ragged sound of the Stripes, but these lossless audio tracks recreate their unkempt music in all its dissheveled glory.
