    Play & most US / Canadian sites are doing it for around £11

    2. Steam
    3. Across The River
    4. Slow Marimbas
    5. Shaking The Tree

    Hi all,

    Mine eventually arrived from Play today (10 days after dispatch!)

    Have heard from various sources that the original 4:3 image has been zoomed to fit 16:9 resulting in severe picture cropping top/bottom.

    Picture quality suffers badly, but thumbs up for the 2.0/DD mixes (DTS mix has been artifically "pumped up" according to this review thread:-
    http://www.hometheaterforum.com/htforum/showthread.php?threadid=119923&highlight=secret+world
    Regards,

    Mine arrived 20/3 also & as I have no social life I watched it last night :blush:
    The show is great
    The sound is good (the surround sound mix is a bit "flashed up" & "gimmicky" IMO)
    The picture is poor (very grainy like a video copy from tv - but at least you see the show without it being ruined by tons of white light being poured onto the stage)
    The extras are nice though including a taster of the 2002-03 tour which looks amazing ...
    Paul ;)

    I don't agree. While picture quality is indeed not optimum, sound quality, is superb.
    DTS is not always the best soundtrack where multiple soundtracks exist on the same disc but in this case, it shines.
    The DTS track is "full" and has body without being overbearing or "bloated".

    "In your eyes" is actually one of the best tracks I've ever heard in the Batcave. Wonderful stuff and highly recommended
