What's your latest 5.1 album on lossy DVD-V?

Since record companies insist on releasing 5.1 albums on lossy DVD-V, this thread sadly becomes necessary. Please don't list DVD-V concerts/music videos, Blu-Ray-A, DVD-A, DTS CD, Dolby Digital CD or SACD's here. There are separate threads for each one of these.

My latest is, of course:

mine latest and last one was Opeth - Heritage.
picked at Walmart probably a year ago. what happened, it's coincided with arriving SW's BD-A.
well, inspite the both mixes was done by same guy [and i guess it was main reason for purchase],
soundwise they are day and night.
to put it short - i wasn't able to listen through all album. after Storm Corrosin the sound of Heritage
just unbearable. i never been proponent of DTS but this was last drop. 5.1 mix more than decent but
to sent it out as DTS was just a crime. so since then i put a big fat cross on any DTS.

I love Heritage in 5.1.
The Album is really great!
I stand like a child in front of the christmas tree when I think about the next Opeth release in 2014.
Even only in stereo :)

I have yet to hear it, but Jethro Tull Benefit is reportedly waiting for me when I get home. I've been a bit out of the loop lately and am just learning from this thread that it is a only a DVD-V. Moondance is in the same shipment. Can't wait to get home.

took a look at credit and you're right.
indeed it says 5.1 mastered at Abbey Road by Peter Mew.
SW doing sound just fine, so i guess the band got too much cash and no idea how to waste it other
than add the name of veteran on list of production team. what a weird move. i'm curious did they even
heard it, before disc was finalized and sent to replication house?

I'm listening the DTS track of the Kreator DVD right now.
It's really good. The only thrash 5.1 mix of a studio album I know.
:banana:
