Product Notes
2023 was the year of the Artrockers from RPWL: 'Crime Scene', the eleventh studio album and the nineteenth overall, entered various charts after it's release: it even reached a remarkable 18th place in the German album charts! This was followed by a fantastic long European tour through eight countries with many sold-out venues. On the last studio longplayer 'Crime Scene', the Bavarian Artrock institution focused their attention on the morbid, the perverse, the evil in the good, the abysses of the human behavior spectrum in all it's unpredictable diversity, which sometimes comes across as bizarrely disturbingly conclusive, if you want to explore it. Conceptually, 'Crime Scene' then logically played the central role in the live shows. The entire album was performed - naturally including some extra songs from the band's history dating back to 1997 - accompanied by a harmonious light show with video clips designed for the respective songs. You could tell how much fun the band had with both the concept and the realization on stage. 'With RPWL, the live versions are often different to those in the studio, many parts are much more extended and we often jam live. ' explains guitarist Kalle Wallner. The outstanding performance in the Netherlands was filmed: 'The Poppodium Boerderij in Zoetermeer was the perfect location - great stage, great lighting, the Dutch temple of prog, so to speak. We've been playing there regularly for over twenty years and have a long and very friendly relationship with the venue and the crew. ' says singer Yogi Lang. The band around the two remaining founding members Yogi Lang and Kalle Wallner had undergone a rejuvenation in 2022: Even before the production of 'Crime Scene', bassist Markus Grützner joined the band and, together with drummer Marc Turiaux, forms a rhythm section of the highest caliber Keyboarder Butsch Keys and the two singers Caroline von Brünken and Carmen Tannich completed the live line-up. The energy and homogeneity that the seven-piece band radiated live was overwhelming - a veritable firework display of emotionality and musical perfection!Even after so many years, there is no sign of RPWL being tired - on the contrary: fans can look forward to a recording full of enthusiasm and an excellent performance. It's safe to say: this is the best RPWL ever!'True Live Crime' contains twelve songs and will be released on Blu-ray with Dolby Atmos surround sound, as double vinyl and double CD on April 12, 2024. It is the band's twentieth album in total.

I'm afraid that the studio versions of the 1st half of the live set (aka last year's Crime Scene) in Atmos are not included - right, my wrong assumption. Still available as streaming though:

Yeah, I mean. For a few dollars you all who are curious should just order it. I haven't really spent any time with it to offer any insights. Yet.....

I guess the jpc's listing can be trusted (the source of the pic above)
concert? Useless....
Hello. Just checking if you have received this and if so, what you think of it?
The Atmos mix is 7.1.4 with enough content on both surround pairs and the 4 Tops.

The feeling is full surroundy, but with few discrete effects, except for some choruses or voice repetitions, and some instruments spatially located.

In any case, the comparison between the Stereo track upmixed with DSU and the Atmos track, gives the Atmos mix as the winner, by a small difference, with some effects being noticed that are somewhat more discrete than stereo with DSU.

About the concert itself is a very good one, in line with previous RPWL concerts releases, and would be a must for RPWL fans (like me :)).
My hopes are that the only great atmos concert will be Stop Making Sense - why? Because the mixer is extraordinarily superlative in the TOPSMMERSION DEPT. - CHRIS PORTER :bowing:
Music only and concert film releases on blu-ray are rarely region locked regardless of what the packaging says. Even for movies, I have many blu-rays that the packaging says region B that play just fine in region A machines. Of course, it never hurts to have a region free player just in case. ;)
