I listened to the Atmos portion of Schiller - Morgenstund. Sadly, it's not really my cup of tea musically speaking. To be honest I was bored even with the improved spread of Atmos as it's just kind of bland electronic music without a real beat half the time. It starts out with some nice circular sounds around the room, but eventually seems to hang out more in the front overall than Booka Shade. Maybe it will get better with a couple more listens, but I wouldn't bet on it. I watched some of the videos and the "Berlin Tehran" one was excellent. The same track in Atmos was boring. I don't know. I was disappointed.
I recall being a bit bored with the Atmos album too. But the Live in Tehran concert is discrete 5.1 and I really enjoyed it. Maybe seeing the musicians doing their thing helped. Synths and percussion.
I recommend checking out the Tehran show, for those that might have went straight for the album and haven't gotten around to the extras.

Atmos mix of Moby's Reprise album, also available for streaming via Tidal and Apple Music, is getting a physical release on November 12.

The CD+BD-V combo also contains recent Moby Doc biopic (90 mins), behind-the-scenes feature plus videos for "Natural Blues", "Why Does My Heart Feel So Bad?" and "Extreme Ways".

No word yet if the immersive mix engineer Nick Rives has created a dedicated 5.1 mix (advertised as "Dolby 5.1" on the cover below).

Hmmm, it seems like the original electronic versions by Moby would be better suited for Atmos 360 degree type imaging than a classical reprise version.

What I really want is the Pet Shop Boys, Enigma and Delerium catalogs in Atmos (all of it).... Someone get to it already. :D

I think the Moby Reprise sounds real good in Atmos on Apple Music.Favorites are Heroes and The Lonely Night.

jpc.de has it for 24 Euros (for US buyers, that price will come down once VAT is removed), with a release date of 12 November.

any shipping charges to the USA?
Minimal--not at all like from the UK (or France). And my last order from them arrived in 7 days. Germany's postal conventions with the US must be much more favorable than some of its neighbors'...

OK, sounds like maybe about $10 cheaper than the US Amazon price when all's said and done?

great news! thank you! i’ll be amazed if "Moon Safari" doesn’t similarly get the Atmos treatment at some point.. tbh i'm surprised it never got done in 5.1 for its 20th anniversary, always felt like a natural fit for Surround

jpc.de price is now $27.45 delivered to US, $16 less than AMA with CA taxes. Also shipping time from Germany improved significantly over the last year crisis. I waited close to 2 months then, and less than 3 weeks now for the VDGG Charisma Years box (which was $50 less than the best price available is US, from importcds). So waiting for the importcds listing till release date.
