Thanks everyone for the kind reviews and insights.Parts of this remind me of ELP BSS. Am I nuts or are there some similarities?
Mike, since it wasn't released by a major record conglomerate I suppose to remaster, author and press both a BD~A and a DVD was cost prohibitive and thus reflects the asking price.I just wish the price point were a bit better. Like 20-25%. This is enjoyable music.
That brought a smile to my face. Thanks.Mike, since it wasn't released by a major record conglomerate I suppose to remaster, author and press both a BD~A and a DVD was cost prohibitive and thus reflects the asking price.
IMO, this album was in some ways the highlight of my year and dazzled with superb sonics, heavenly melodies and a total sophistication in the art of the synthesizer, bettering IMO, anything Tomita ever did [and I do love Tomita].
I just 'scored' Alan Parson's Eye in the Sky BD~A from Deep Discount for $13.41, delivered so I take the good with the bad, and that's almost $10 cheaper than I would've procured it from Amazon w/sales tax added.
Which is why I HATE those ridiculous kitchen sink box sets when all I want is the 5.1 [I know, a boring cliche by now].
I hope you're working on your new album. Stick with it. It'll keep your mind occupied on positive pursuits rather than the bleak reality of the war torn zone you're surround with everyday.
More than EVER, we need a Days of Future Passed for the new millennium. Something positive, original and special.
Stay SAFE Mike. We ALL need you back in the States. Little Baggy needs his daddy!
No lossless option? Was that intentional? Could it be an authoring mistake?It's a slight anomaly that this was released on blu-ray, yet still contains only lossy surround audio. Almost a juxtaposition of formats. For something like this that only contains the lossy core audio, a DVD would've sufficed.
I would gladly pay a bit more for a lossless flac version of this album derived from the original 5.1 LPCM files.
Mike, could've been but was probably done for licensing fee reasons. IMO, and EVERYONE knows I am LOSSY ADVERSE, this DTS sounds as good as almost anything in my collection. They could've avoided DTS MA HD, DOLBY TRUE HD licensing fees by just encoding it in LOSSLESS LPCM which does not require any licensing fees.No lossless option? Was that intentional?
