The only complaint I have with the DVD is its price, as the disc only has 9 minutes of music, no Lyric subtitles and only stereo sound. What make this even worse is the fact that you really only getting one video clip that lasts for 4:28 minutes. If there were 3 or 4 different versions of Music, I feel it would have been much more acceptable, i.e. a standard mix, a music-only mix (no additional video clip sounds), a real extended mix - 8 minutes plus, a club mix and possibly even a disco mix.

The picture is razor sharp and there is tons of detail in both the foreground and background. No low level noise, edge bleeding or excessive edge enhancement were seen and the shadow detail is perfect.
The colour was absolutely amazing. It has a vibrancy to it that I have never seen before. I felt like I could have just fallen into the picture - in fact, I'm sure I did on several occasions, and I wasn't even using a progressive scan DVD player.
At the start of each of the video clips there is some trivial background grain, but this is the only occurrence of grain that was noticed.
There are no Lyric subtitles.
The audio was always clear and undistorted with no sync problems.
Since this video clip only has a stereo soundtrack, the surround speakers are not used, but there is plenty of bass for the subwoofer to reproduce if you have it on. I flicked my decoder into THX surround mode but there is virtually no surround channel use.

NOTE: To view non-R4 releases, your equipment needs to be multi-zone compatible and usually also NTSC compatible.
Amazing is pretty much the only way to describe the picture quality of this disc. It is just superb and is by far the best transfer that I have ever seen, bar none.
The audio is great - clear and crisp.
A paltry web link is all that we get for an extra.
