I suspect (but am not positive) that some tracks have been pseudo-surrounded due to lost/missing/unusable multitracks.Bought this disc a couple of weeks ago on vacation in Houston, TX.
On a first listen to this entire disc, I was really torn between how I should vote for this particular disc.
Some songs have a very discrete and lovely surround mix while others come up short and fall in the "big stereo" category.
But I ended up going with a '9'. Why? I really don't know. I'm still trying to really understand what Nick Cave is all about, so if I can find anymore of his discs in stores, I will continue to buy so I can see if any other albums really stand out for me.
