The quality of this work is just the best. This show has already been reported as a part of the highest peak master’s four-disc set
“SAITAMA SUPER ARENA 2020 (hereinafter, the previous work)”, but in fact this work refines the second day with meticulous mastering It is.
The relationship between the original sound and the remaster will be given to the explanation of “SAITAMA SUPER ARENA 2020 1ST NIGHT”,
and the original master of this work is a sister work by the same recorder, the same equipment, the same venue, and the same position as “1ST NIGHT”.
Therefore, the compatibility with mastering may be omitted, and this work is completely reborn.
In addition, the final form transcends “1ST NIGHT”. The conditions are all the same as above, but the sound on the second day is better because the
sound on the band side is different. The difference was felt in the previous work of the four-disc set, but it has been carried over to this remastered work.
Of course, it is a slight difference only in the same system, but it is this work that reigns in the ultimate “Kanto recording top” (West Japan is still in the
middle of the vertex war, so avoid the affirmation of the tour best) ).
And there are two main differences. The first is a sense of stability in the first half. As a matter of fact, on the first day, the sound was approaching
the treble at the beginning of the venue PA. It started to calm down from about the 5th song and became a natural balance, but the second day of this
work was stable from the beginning. It is directly related to the quality of this work. The other is a gorgeous feeling of sound. Even with “ 1ST NIGHT ”,
exquisite sound components were left, and cloudiness was cleared out clearly, but even with the same processing, the response of the midrange is
more plenty, and the edge of the deep bass is sharp It is impressive. This is (probably) also due to the sound of the site PA. Generally speaking, the
second day of the venue is strong. No matter how carefully you check the sound, the sound changes just by putting in the audience, but all songs are played
in that state. Not only the balance, but also the difference in how the music is heard can be perfectly understood and the ideal can be pursued. In this work,
the sound “QUEEN wants” that takes advantage of such strengths is firmly engraved, and it is also a clear recording so that it can be clearly felt.
[Full show with plenty of famous songs since the 70s / 80s] Such skill is apparent not only in the sound staff but also in the band itself.
Despite having performed two shows in Korea before coming to Japan, the Asian leg itself was the head of the 2020 World Tour.
In one performance one performance, I recovered the can and my body was getting used to it. In addition, this work is the second performance of the
same venue, and the songs to be played are the same (only the position of the Japanese limited song “I Was Born To Love You” has been changed, so the
flow is more complete). On the first day, the rhythm became unstable and there were some songs that I couldn’t wipe out, but on the second day of this work,
it became stable. The set has been introduced in various commentaries, so let’s regroup it based on QUEEN’s history in Japan.
