Watched this a few days after it dropped through my door. Superb release, the video quality is a big improvement over the previous live blu-ray they released.

The audio mix on this is just insane, possibly the most discreet mix I've ever heard. It really envelopes around you. My only issue is that the bass is a bit lacking for me. Whether that is my system (I don't run a sub, just 5.0), I don't know but the previous BBT blu ray mixes had better bass drum punch and more audible bass guitar for me. It's nothing drastic but I wanted a little more Oomph in the lower end.

Out of curiosity, I A/B’d “Brave Captain” with the prior version on Reflectors Of Light to see if there were any major differences in tonality and/or panning. It seems that basic soundstage is mostly the same, but the Hackney Empire recording has more headroom and the LFE channel is full-range (containing isolated drums & bass guitar)--which could explain some variations in bass response on different systems.
