Excerpt: The video presentation is awesome on this BD the detail when the stage is fully lit is incredible. You could read the tiny words enscribed on the microphones! The audio is definatly a bit off, the drums are loud and crisp but the vocals, in contrast to ectoplasm's experience, seemed louder than usual and were heard only from the center channel. I think this adds to the weirdness of the mix as it doesnt create a blended feel to the sound field.
Excerpt: Somewhat Disappointed Justin Fan The audio on this concert wasn't mixed right. The center channel needs to be boosted about +3.5 on my Marantz over the L and R channels in order for it to start to sound correct. It's still not great, however. It just wasn't mixed in a way that seems powerful, like my Destiny's Child disc, for example. The blu-ray transfer was done very well. Those with 120hz TVs will really enjoy the live look to this. Excellent color.
Excerpt: In stark contrast to the other postings to date, I rate this concert as dismal. In fairness I should point out that I attempted it via the HBO hi-def presentation, so I won't comment on the disc one way or the other, though since posting isn't allowed unless you fill in all of the categories, will give middle of the road tech ratings based again on the 5.1 HBO show.
Excerpt: I think this concert is great! IF your a JT fan and can appreciate his influcences even though young has very good insight into good R&B and what works. On the first song I thought that I was going to be dissapointed because of the way they mastered the audio to pan from the back emphasizing the rears a little too much for my taste on 5.1 recordings, but by the second song they were beginning to get it right and by the third it was set nicely.
Excerpt: I personally attended this concert in Ft. lauderdale FL and I loved it. I was very excited to see it on Blu-ray. And for $20.00 who could pass that up! It looks great in 1080p and sounds even better in PCM uncompressed audio! Its my first Musical Blu-ray purchase and I must say I'm glad i did it. Go out and get it if you dont have it. Its the BOMB go JT!!! You gotta give it to him he'd pretty fly for a white guy lol.
Excerpt: You can bash Justin, but after seeing this it'll change your perception about him. If you can find an artist that puts out half the energy he does, I won't argue. He plays almost every instrument the band has, does his dance routines, and makes good songs. Watch it and then tell me if I'm wrong. Video wise, the blacks are rough in spots, but nearly all of the concert is perfect quality. The stage and light show reall make this an eye catch.
Excerpt: Ok now obviously this isn't the greatest BD title out to date, but for the Justin Timberlake fan like myself, it is fantastic. All the songs look and sound amazing esp. for My Love. Extras are identical to the regular DVD version that came out in November of 2007 and are all processed in DVD format. Just the concert alone looks and sounds better. So again this concert isn't for everybody, but i still give it a perfect rating ( minus the extras) if you are a Justin Fan!
Justin Timberlake: FutureSex/LoveShow - Live from Madison Sq

Conclusion: WOW.If you like your Music DVD/Blue Ray HD, you are going to love this. The best quality Blue Ray I have bought so far. The cinematography, 5.1 Digital sound, and great performance from Justin and his crew just make this one you really cannot miss. Trust me its great ! Watch this and you will feel you have witnessed one of the greatest ever alround performers you are ever likely to see.
Conclusion: I am not really a Justin timberlake fan, but I brought this disc for the sound. while i was at the "what hifi" show in London last year, they used this disc as a demo to highlight the potential of HD audio. Most people think Blu ray is just for images and picture quality, but having the right set up and equipment you will be blown away by HD audio. and this disc shows HD audio at the very best. I must have!!!
