Well, I don't want anything emanating from the ceiling (except in the rare cases where the artist/composer so specifies).
5 out of 6 albums I just reviewed had Atmos and/or Auro-3D intended from inception. An argument could be made for the 6th (Abbey Road), since the surviving members and estates must have signed off.

That is rare in classical music.

Signing off (especially after such a long interval since the original production) does not carry quite as much weight as contemporaneous intent. I have speculated that, had these technologies been available to them at the time, the artists would have made more and more inventive use of them than did the producers of the 50th Anniversary Edition.

I'm mostly responding to you for the benefit of others. 2L is a great example of a label that does orchestral immersive recordings from inception, from mic placement onward.
It's cool that you have little to no interest. Just not sure why you feel the need to keep reminding us of that.

I am not sure what you are responding to but I do like many of 2L's recordings and, in particular, I have been greatly impressed with some of his BluRay "immersive" recordings of music written and conceived by the composer to incorporate spatial elements including height. My point is that it is not what the recordist decides to do but what the creative artist specifies. In classical music, this is the composer. In other genres, it may be the composer/performer.

And I will add that I have greatly appreciated immersive classical recordings in which the height information conveys only ambience information (e.g., the BluRay Karajan/BPO Beethoven set from the '70s). This contributes greatly to the perception of actual performance space.

It's cool that you have little to no interest. Just not sure why you feel the need to keep reminding us of that.
So, I do have a great interest but it is not indiscriminate.

One of the songs (Polar Lights) is already in Tidal (in Atmos)
Atmos works when an album is released in true atmos on BD first with no compression or bitrate limiting.

It doesn't work when made for Tidal first with compression and bitrate limiting and then never released on BD.

This is something Tidal doesn't understand.

Cheers Ian,
Ordered ta...👍
Album of the Day on Bandcamp a year or so ago:

Hardcore/post-hardcore is not exactly my cuppa, and I think I'm too old for "the emo equivalent of spoken word—slam poetry at its most sullen." But I'll still get behind indie musicians in any genre who are taking the trouble to remix their work for surround. (Just to clarify, though: it looks like 5.1 but not Atmos on this Blu-Ray.)

If that Perry Farrell set also had the first solo album mixed in Atmos, I'd be all over it and sell the rest after getting the BDs.

Would love to see the first two Porno for Pyros albums done in surround too, and of course...Ritual de lo Habitual in Atmos? Well if that was announced, "I think I just filled the cup".
