Music in High Places: Ryan Adams - Live in Jamaica

( 3 )

Overview

Music in High Places: Ryan Adams--Live in Jamaica works in similar fashion to the series' other DVD releases. The 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer provides an impressive avenue for viewing the natural scenery of Jamaica. The beaches, palm trees, and colorful waters shine nicely, and everything appears clearly. There are limitations to the source material, which does not match the best film transfers, but it still generally succeeds. This disc provides a 5.1-channel DTS transfer that definitely showcases the ...

Overview

Music in High Places: Ryan Adams--Live in Jamaica works in similar fashion to the series' other DVD releases. The 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer provides an impressive avenue for viewing the natural scenery of Jamaica. The beaches, palm trees, and colorful waters shine nicely, and everything appears clearly. There are limitations to the source material, which does not match the best film transfers, but it still generally succeeds. This disc provides a 5.1-channel DTS transfer that definitely showcases the wealth of sounds in Jamaica. The acoustic tunes spring from all sides and enhance the listening experience. The clarity level is extremely high, corresponding with expectations for a DTS track. Only slightly less effective is the 5.1-channel Dolby Digital version, which nearly matches the power, but falls a bit short in complexity. The release also contains a solid 2.0-channel Dolby Surround transfer. Two short featurettes appear on this release and slightly enhance moments already seen in the main presentation. "Jamaica: The Real Story" lasts about seven minutes and provides goofy moments of the Ryan Adams being silly, the crew eating some interesting fish, and other odd scenes. The second featurette offers about eight minutes of Adams and Toots preparing for their performance. Viewers not as familiar with Adams should also enjoy an informative text biography, which provides considerable biographical material, even while praising the star. Finally, an option exists to watch only the music, which reveals an additional song--"To Be Young (is to be sad, is to be high)."

    Really Great

    I just thought it was great to see Ryan walking around & playing outdoors. It's nice knowing what he thinks about a lot of what he's doing too, so I think it was worth it.

    For Die-Hard Ryan Adams Fans Only

    If you enjoy Ryan Adam's music as much as I do, you would think that this DVD would satisfy any desires you might have to see and hear him play his music, especially since, to my knowledge, there is no other DVD or video footage of him on the market at this time. Unfortunately, my desires were not met by this DVD, which follows Ryan around Jamaica as he shops in the street market and plays and sings several of his better tunes. The main problem was the poor sound quality during the songs. Ryan sounded as if he was singing from the bottom of the ocean or phoning in his performance. It is too bad the producers didn't spend as much time considering the sound as they did the filming of this DVD (which was originally a television broadcast). This is too bad since after all, it is a music video as much as a travelogue. It also isn't much of a travelogue, since you don't get any real feel for the people or the place. You just end up wonderning what the hell Ryan was thinking when he allowed this to occur. Was it because it was a free trip to Jamaica?
