Like many surround discs, I play some tracks from this one only once in a while. But it is a keeper especially given the relative dearth of high-resolution popular surround sound titles.I have both the DTS CD and DVDA.
This gal can wail and plays just fine. I still play one or the other from time to time. No negative thoughts about owning this one.
Love the surround mix as well.
Worthy of a nine at least !
BTW, this title is also available as a MLP DVD~A.5.1 and does sound significantly better than the DTS disc. https://www.amazon.com/Globe-Sessions-Sheryl-Crow/dp/B0000C8AQY/ref=tmm_dva_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=&sr=Has anyone figured out how to rip the DTS-ES 6.1 stream out of this disc? I have the DTS-CD version- ripped it like a regular CD and ran it through DTSParser, which gave me .DTS files with the extra channel encoding intact. The problem is I can't seem to find any program that will decode those and create a 7-channel WAV or FLAC...so far I've tried eac3to through command prompt, AudioMuxer, and Foobar.
I was never crazy about this release...I do really like the opening track (great guitar hook) but my interest wanes from there. The surround mix seems rather tame for a DTS Entertainment title.
For example, there is nothing 100% discrete in the rears during the opening track, my "My Favorite Mistake". The fronts contain drums, bass, vocals, guitar, and organ (bass and vocals loudest in the center channel), while the rears contain only guitar and organ with a faint vocal echo. It's not a fake mix, it's just sort of underwhelming...but then again this isn't a particularly dense song, so who knows how much they had to work with.
I may boost the rears a couple dB as they seem rather low and see if that makes any difference.

Still, I would like to check out what's in that extra channel.
