Just was reading one of my Sound & Vision issues with this article in it by Mike Mettler - Hmmm... (read the last couple paragraphs!)
Remaster Class: Supertramp: Crime of the Century

I agree 100%!!!!:love: (y)
To channel Spinal Tap, I 111% agree, Crime Of The Century would be wonderful in surround

Alright, I looked through everything and came up with a couple more that I haven’t seen listed yet:

Supergrass - Road to Rouen: This is one of the more underrated albums from the 2000s and Tales of Endurance, Pt. 4, 5, & 6 is one of my favorite songs ever. Lots of potential with percussion, strings, keys and horn elements all over this record.

David Byrne and St. Vincent - Love This Giant: Horn-centric album which would just be awesome to hear coming out of every speaker.

Slowdive - S/T: Shoegaze brilliance. Would be such an immersive experience being swallowed up in their effects if it could be pulled off.

Mercury Rev - Deserter's Song: Another album that’s a bit underrated as well. Most have heard of Goddess on a Hiway and it’s got enough instrumentation to put together a good discrete surround mix. “The Funny Bird” is also just a wonderful song.

Triumph - Allied Forces: Another Canadian rock trio, so just mix it like AFTK. Fight The Good Fight is something everyone should here. (Not by Chycki though! He remixed their hits in stereo a decade ago and it was not stellar.)

Coheed and Cambria - Their whole catalog but The Afterman would probably be the best suited. There's a decent amount of sound effects in that one that would It might be a situation where you mix them like SW did Rush,

to be perfectly honest, Ziggy may not be up to SW's standards but it is a quite effective MCH mix, wayyy better than the horrible StS one from Maislin!

As for Triumph.. THAT is a huge surprise...would have never imagined it...That was the first concert I ever saw in front row (San Juan,PR 1981 with Rick Derringer playing a full set and blowing them off the stage... I even have their "Just a game" LP signed by all three members...)

Yes, would love a bit of Slowdive (probably the earlier stuff, though, as first choice). And for once, a messy, not very discrete mix might work, fitting in with the whole shoegaze vagueness.

Souvlaki would be awesome to get. I was being a little realistic picking the 2017 album because who knows where the multitracks are (if they even exist anymore). And it would totally work! I would just worry about the amount of reverb since a 5.1 mix can be overwhelmed with it quickly and then it just all sucks.

If we were forgetting reality as the post implies, then I would have to easily vote for an Atmos mix of this classic:

View attachment 46721


Think it also won an award .. for best song .. ever.. :cool:
This is at the very top of my wishlist for a 5.1 mix or higher!!! When this song first came on the radio in the US, it totally blew my mind and that was in stereo!

I would love to get Slades' Keep Your Hands Off My Power Supply. I wore the oxide off that cassette in my teens. Might have to take some Gravol for the opening guitars though...
