    Another Gem from Elliot Scheiner - what more can I say?
    The mix is, as usual, superb - and if you are into Sting at all then this disc is an absolute "must buy".
    One of the "bonus" features here really highlights the difference between Surround/Stereo and High Rez over Lossy: there is a video of the track "After The Rain Has Fallen" with a stereo DD audio stream.
    Play this, then access the same track - in stereo - off the High Rez section and prepare to be stunned at the difference in sound quality.
    And Elliot's Surround mix is awesome.

    Contents are
    24/48 High Rez Surround (The reason it only got a 9 from me. 24/96 would have given it a 10)
    24/44.1 stereo - an odd choice of sample rate!
    Dolby Digital Surround
    The video for the single
    Various active extras, such as photos, lyric sheets etc.

    All in all, a fine release all round.

    And did I mention that Elliot's surround mix is superb yet?
    Oh well, whatever - nevermind.

    I'm not the biggest fan of Sting or the album, but the mix is undeniably impressive and a nice listen...a '9'!

    7/10 from me for the SACD. Everything is great on it. Great mix, surrounds, etc. Elliot did a great job. However I knock 3 off since its missing the full version of "End Of The Game" which is on the DTS CD.

    6/10 for the DVD-A verison. The sound is a little more dry on this version. Still missing "End Of The Game" on the DVD-A side but however it is on the DVD-Video side at the end of the album in DD 5.1.

    Sting isn't my fav, but this is a great SA-CD.

    Excellent sonics. Great surround mix by Elliot.

    I like the music... much to my surprise.

    A 9 disc for me.

    Seeing as I couldn't find a Poll for the DTS CD (which is the way to go on this one in MultiCh it seems, as the DTS CD is the only disc with the complete "End of the Game").. well here I am to vote!

    Even though I'm not into Sting (at all..!) and the Sacred Love SACD I have of his sucks big time in every respect, this is superb! I can actually bear the music here -- and the surround mix is just superb!

    another Elliot Scheiner masterwork!

    It's a "9".

    10. Great music, mix and fidelity. i got the DTS long ago and the SACD years later when it was released. This is a must have.

    Actually even though the 7th track is the same as on the SACD - the 19 second Prelude - on the DVD Audio the entire 'End of the Game' is a hidden on the same track as 'Brand New Day'. Just let it run. It's there!
