I heard the exact same mix with REO Speedwagon on Soundstage last night on PBS.

What's up?

Is it excessive compression?

Could it be that Comcast is transmitting low quality audio?

PS
Actually, Bruce sounds great, but the guitar sounds are flat, instead of full and bold.
Some of the other pieces (piano, etc) are marginal, IMHO.

I was not very impressed to say the least. His voice sounds tired and a little a bit pitchy. Maybe it's all the running around....

I see 5 guitar players on the stage, and almost no guitar in the mix!!! WTF is up with that?!?!?

Didn't take long for the critics to come out

I tho0ught he gave it 100% and Bruce at 50% is better than many.

On 'Glory Days,' he reminded me of an old codger standing in front of his house and yelling at the neighborhood kids for walking on his lawn.

Lame performance.

Do you think his guitar tech almost s*#t his pants when he almost dropped his tele :eek:.

I heard them just fine in my HDTV 5.1 mix.
Granted it was a very full mix, lots of instruments onstage, so there's no doubt that
nothing would be prominent unless it was for a solo.

Exactly.

The Stones had problems with their guitar tone at the SuperBowl too.
I noticed they've switched to tweeds.

I missed it. Did he sing a song about the plight of the American farmer? Or a song about those damn, high-falutin rich folk?

I thought the slide into the camera man was classic...

And Bruce's voice isn't the best and it never has been.

with the sped they have to set everything up for those things, its surprising they arent miming (if they in fact aren't). They just had a wall of sound with all the people there.

The tele would be fine if it got dropped, I bet that wouldn't be the 1st time.
