When good, this is very, very good, so a 5-star rating seems appropriate despite the negative mentioned below. The sound is consistently great, and the filmer's zooming and panning make for an interesting watch. Dylan was in fine voice on this first night of the 2014 Tokyo run, and the crowd responded with spirited enthusiasm.

The primary negative is that the disc author chose to use a still menu shot (see screenshot 1) to replace the missing first song and the same still as a bridge between songs. It's unclear if the bridge was used because video was missing between songs, but, in that case, alternate stills or even movie clips might have been used to make viewing more interesting.

Whatever the case, we're fortunate to have this work and are grateful to DhyanDipa for sharing the blu-ray sources.
