Hi Patrick, you can find the video's and works in progress when you go to the song selection. When you hit the song titles there, with some you get the choice of video and/or demo mix. It's not so user friendly to be honest, but its all there.Hello. This is a solid 10 for 5.1 mix and musical content. Still don't know how to get to navigate to the video/song extras (I can get to the 2 tracks in the BONUS section on the main menu), but I know I'll find the way via help from you all. A perfect companion to Insurgentes. I've played the disc around 10 times (in 5.1), and my favorite track, so far, is INDEX. Thanks.
I've listened to it a few times. Sonics are great and the mix is solid. The dark, very moody tone of the album won't appeal to everyone. There are lots of images and several video clips as well which will seem a bit cliche if you've seen some of the other visuals that came with the various Insurgentes projects. You won't find many catchy hooks here. Still, I think this one deserves several listens from folks before they pass judgement. I'm going to give it a few more listens before I vote but I'll be giving it a high ranking.
The navigation sucks on this disc. It would be nice if the menus collpased if you hit the arrows in the appropriate direction, but you have to go back to the close button with the "X" in the menu - painful. That and the track selection problems make it a real pain.I agree the authoring is different and the navigation of the disc takes a little getting used to but after a short learning curve it's not bad. It seems that there is no standard approach for BD audio authoring yet. Blu-ray menu layouts for Neil Young, Pink Floyd, and this disc are inconsistent, only Tom Petty and Rush have been similar. That's not necessarily a bad thing, it just makes it challenging for push and play operation without a monitor..
