    Tony Vicsonti did a great job with the surround mix. There's plenty of action that stays within the theme and overall tone of the music. "Heathen" contains some of Bowie's better works in years---not that I'm a Bowie expert, but it is rather easy to hear even for a casual fan like me. There's just enough "welcoming warmth" to the recording that I can't complain. In fact, I only went with a 9 instead of a 10 because the album is a little bit on the long side.

    for me, the best Bowie surround mix - and I've got them all..!

    it trounces the Ken Scott 5.1 Ziggy SACD and is even better than the Young Americans 5.1. I love Visconti's active surround mix on the latters' DVDV, so in my book thats a tall order.

    the album itself is excellent too, much prefer it to Reality.

    there are four really nice bonus tracks ("hidden" in as much as the back cover makes no mention of them and the booklet is just the same as the redbook, as is common on Sony/Columbia SACDs). all the bonus tracks are in 5.1, couple very string heavy and all as strong as the album tracks, round off a really great disc, that I'm so happy to have - at last! I'll be playing this a lot!
