Yeah, the Blu-Ray authoring is pretty lazy - the repetitive slideshow is probably the least of its sins, I'm more annoyed about the loud menu music and difficult-to-see text.Speaking of which, it gets really dull and repetitive after seeing them the first couple times. I wish they would at least use different photos for each song, there must be thousands of photos available from that era and I’m sure there’s space on the disc.
I wonder if you might prefer the Atmos fold-down? I did notice that the 5.1 mix makes frequent use of the 'phantom sides' (FL & RL, FR & RR) usually for rhythm guitar parts - like the acoustics in "Love Ain't For Keeping" - whereas many of those same elements are almost 100% isolated in the side speakers the Atmos mix. If you were to play the TrueHD 7.1/Atmos stream back on a 5.1 system, I imagine those parts might appear more forcefully panned to the back speakers.Maybe it’s my setup, but I must admit I was a little underwhelmed on first listen. It sounds too much like glorified stereo for my liking.
