REVIEW:
This DVD contains broadcasts of two different shows from Japanese TV. The first is a direct DVB recording of the September 12th 2002 show in Tokyo, Japan. Only five songs are featured but the recording is very high quality, a high bitrate DVB broadcast captured directly with a standalone recorder. The picture is sharp and clear with no macroblocking or other artifacts. Audio is also clear and crisp, making for a very nice pro-shot video.

The second broadcast is again from Japan but of a show in the US, at the Black Cat in May, 2003. Some songs from the acoustic portion of this show is featured on the Everywhere But Home but this broadcast features songs from the electric set. This is a VHS recording rather than a direct digital copy but is still of quite good quality, with only a little fuzzyness in the picture. The audio is well mixed and again nice and clear.

Complete Pro-shot video. This is sourced from a very high quality, high definition satellite feed video and as such the quality is very high. Shots are clear and sharp with no sign of compression or macroblocking. The audio is also of quite a good standard with the instruments well mixed and presented in a high bitrate MP2 format. The audio volume was boosted losslessly with command line tool BeSplit so is louder but identical quality, as the boost was done losslessly.

REVIEW:
This is a 2 disc compilation disc featuring TV broadcasts from 2011. The source of each video varies but the vast majority are taken from HDTV and DVB captures directly and so video quality throughout ranges from very good to excellent. The footage from the NME Awards and the 'A New Light' mini documentary are sourced from analogue captures of HDTV recordings and as such don't have quite the same quality as some direct sources. There are a couple of digital errors on tracks 22 - 24 of disc one from the source material. Audio throughout is excellent, all direct digital recordings and kept from the original streams with no re-encoding with the exception of the analog recorded sections which were captured in LPCM but encoded to AC3 for space reasons. Every audio track is in stereo of varying bitrates. Overall these are two excellent DVDs containing most of the TV footage from 2011 in Europe and totals nearly 3 hours of Foo Fighters footage.
