Unfortunately I have to agree with RT. This release is clearly for the vinyl lover. The additional 5.1 might as well be the dice. I don't need to prove to anyone I like Motorhead by buying this.
Unfortunately for most Ace Of Spades is the go to disc if you where to purchase one Motorhead.
I am happy that there was one disc released in 2004 that was for the surround enthusiasts and will be good enough for me.

Also, given that there's a big portion of video material on the DVD, I really doubt that the 5.1 mix is delivered lossless - expect dts or dolby digital.

Yes, but it's one of the good ones. The 5.1 was mixed from the original multitracks by Chris Haynes (who did several other great 5.1's including the Foo Fighters' One By One and Britney Spears' In The Zone). It's a really active mix with a lot of the guitar parts isolated in the rear channels.

I vaguely remember that one...IIRC it was good...Chris did another Silverline that was pretty good...The Curse of Blondie

That is more or less the standard of anniversary releases nowadays. Only way of getting the surround mix is to go after the super mega box.
I don't mind a mega box I just don't see vinyl And blu ray/DVD as bed mates.

I have pretty much stuck to the no vinyl mantra for my box sets for the last few years. Not my loss I have plenty to.listen too. Record companies loss for stupid marketing ideas

I have been splitting cost with a friend, he gets the vinyl, I get the 5.1. He has lost his job though so that is over. Too bad, love this album and didn't know about 5.1 when the Silverline came out.
