I just listened to my copy purchased from Amazon UK. The DTS 5.0 sounds really good, no problem (loop) as mentioned. I did not check the Dolby Digital or CD.On Amazon UK, a couple of reviewers are claiming that on 'The Drapery Falls', "...the song "Harvest" is repeated on loop all the way through, at 50% of the volume, meaning you can barely hear anything but Mikael's vocals for The Drapery Falls."
Can anyone confirm/deny this?

So it seems like the new batch should be ok, but the original dts track didn't have the problem anyway. Still odd that this happened."Jens delivered a perfect master and the mistake was made by the DVD authoring house Sony used. We´re now discussing with Sony on how to solve the problem and they´re currently busy recalling stock from retail to replace with correct discs. No minor undertaking and one of the worst things that can happen to a record label. Sony is doing eveything in its power to fix this but it´ll be hard replacing discs that were already sold.
ALL VIP´s that went to the Stockholm, NYC and LA shows are in a way lucky as they all had items missing from the goodie bags that we have yet to send. Their packages will also include a correct DVD.
BTW: if you have a stereo that has DTS instead of dolby you wont have this problem. Also, dolby 5.0 simply means that the low frequency signal thats usually directed to the subwoofer is now divided between the 5 ´normal´ speakers. In general that give you a better sound for rock music though you might miss it if you prefer to play loud ass techno "music". (but why you would want to play that anyway is beyond me. Really...)
Hope this clears things up a bit. An official statement on the faulty DVD´s will be made as soon as we know all the details."
What? I just listent to it again and wanted to know what you think about it. I have to disagree.This is terrible. The mix is atrocious at times. Guitars way too loud at rears with bass, drums and vocals WAAAAY too low in the mix. A complete mess.
Sorry, I can't help myself. I just have to say again: "No LFE is a good thing with audio disks. The LFE channel is redundant with a properly mastered audio disk."8 is the highest this disc can get from me.
No lossless options and no LFE. So a point deducted for each of those things.
I had my rears too high when I made that comment. They were still turned up from a previous disc. Once I had them sorted BWP is actually pretty decent! Much better than Ghost Reveries and less compressed than Still Life. Jens is really inconsistent with his mixes but he can be good.What? I just listent to it again and wanted to know what you think about it. I have to disagree.
The mix is really heavy and well balanced.
I also really can not understand, why rtbluray gives an 8 only because it is DTS and we have no sub in here....@:
A 10 for sure!
