With special guests Ashley Mac Isaac, Altan, Steve Cooney, Van Morrison, and Los Lobos, The Chieftains: Water From The Well is a particularly good disc with with to begin your Chieftains experience
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD exhibits beautiful imagery of Irish landscapes, with images that are sharp, though clarity seems limited at times. The picture can be slightly dark and undefined. Colors are rich, with deep indefinite blacks. Some minor pixelization is noticed on occasion, and aliasing is noticed infrequently. Still, fans of the Chieftains should enjoy the music and their stories. (Suzanne Hodges)
Reason #55 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I read Widescreen Review because it has had a consistent editorial perspective since its inception: a no-compromise approach to making home theatre the best that it can be. I have read the magazine cover to cover since Issue 2. Despite staff and reviewer changes over the years, thanks to Gary's leadership this perspective has never changed. As new technologies are introduced, Widescreen Review always provides in-depth analyses of not just the technology itself, but the political and industry forces that may be forcing compromises in its development. You have always sounded the clarion call to stop compression madness or any other madness that may force us to accept a home theatre experience that falls short of what it could be. Thank you!
