Once again Universal has seen fit to adorn this audio Blu-ray with three arguably repetitive audio options, a PCM 2.0 (24/96) track streaming at a constant 4.6 Mbps, a DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 (24/96) track which averages in the high 3's, and a Dolby TrueHD 2.0 (24/96) track that is anchored around 3.0 Mbps. I personally preferred the PCM track, which to my ears presented a slightly though noticeably more robust upper mid- and high range. All three tracks have a somewhat more fulsome low end than previous audio releases. The pronounced reverb on such songs as "I Don't Wanna Be a Soldier, Mama, I Don't Wanna Die" seems even more prevalent in this lossless format, just slightly burying John's voice some of the time. Little flourishes like the dobro George Harrison plays on "Crippled Inside" resonate with a new clarity here and sound fantastic.
