I should have taken this advice. I listened to it on the highway in my car's factory stereo and was completely underwhelmed. Hopefully that video/blu ray is much better. At the same time though, I feel like I shouldn't have to stage everything perfectly in order to get the right mixing (for lack of better term) out of the song. That's the producer's job. I could listen to S & M on the highway with all the windows rolled down and still hear that blissful orchestra.
I'm starting to think that they maybe the band needs to remix this altogether and just accept the embarrassment of getting it wrong the first time (hey Death Magnetic). I'm no producer, but maybe it's as easy as having a conductor over your shoulder and just turning up the volume on what needs to turned up. The End is Here just sounded like a regular live recording for most of it and, to me, that's a really big letdown.
