Celebrating his own retirement, Jay-Z threw a Fade To Black party at Madison Square Garden in November 2003. This is the night that the too-young-to-retire Jay-Z invited all his friends and fans to bring down the house and say good-bye, and he candidly takes a look back at the meteoric rise of his career.

The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD picture exhibits satisfying image quality, with an adequate, if slightly undersaturated, color scheme. Blacks tend to appear a bit milky, and hues can appear somewhat smeared. While images can appear soft and undefined, the picture can be nicely detailed at times. Contrast seems a bit low, contributing to detail limitations. Pixelization is rarely noticed, and there is no bothersome edge enhancement. (Suzanne Hodges)
Reason #72 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I love to read WSR because of the straightforward, professional equipment reviews. I also LOVE the DVD reviews. As a home theatre fanatic, I want to know the technical and quality aspects of my future purchase/rental DVDs with just a brief synopsis of what the movie is about. Other home theatre publications spend way too much space reviewing the movie itself. I will make my own judgments on the merits of the movie, what I want from my magazine is some insight on how the DVD will sound and look on my system. WSR gives the reader just that. GREAT mag! Keep up the good work!
