Ah! Then I can see why you used this disc to demo! The mixes definitely improve as the album moves along.See! Track 4 was my demo track...
I'm ashamed to admit that it was actually the 5.1 mix of DSOTM I used, this was before I joined this forum and learned the error of my ways...
See?!Gave this another spin....
Track 4 is great!!!!
haha! I didn't think you were crazy!See?!
And everyone thought I was crazy. Ok, there's a lot of what is basically the same thing coming out of all 5 speakers, but sometimes that can be fun.
And then there's the odd moment on the mix where they actually show you what they can do. Really wish there was more electronica in 5.1.
eek! :yikesAh but resources were limited at the time, you see.
Now it'd be a different story. I have nearly 100+ albums in surround now, most of which I've bought since that day in November... *help!*
afaik there's a 5.1 mix of "Black Cherry", prepared for MultiCh SACD, unreleased to this day.Great disc. Got this used on Discogs for pennies. The mix is delicious and fills your room with amazing low end. I'm a big fan of electro/techno/industrial music if it's done well (there are mountains of crap in those genres - especially after the digital age hit and every schmuck with a computer thinks he's a producer). Goldfrapp doesn't disappoint. Intuitive writing and fine production make for some great listening. I wish they'd do this for Black Cherry as well.
I voted a 9 on it because they left out some great remixes - like the Ride A White Horse (Serge Santiágo Re-Edit), which is one of the greatest dance tracks ever recorded. When I'm king of America it will be mandatory to include 12" mixes on all surround releases. Until then, it gets a 9.
Trust me . I've tried to no avail..they won't even listen to the great guru Neil Wilkes, who is the closest one to the Zen of it!!!Make NO mistake....the SACD sounds better but I was only able to procure it after two attempts: the first copy was advertised as an SACD but I received the DVD/CD instead and kept it because I would've had to return it to the UK [wasn't worth it] and by the second attempt, I was fortunate to score the SACD.
The SACD has a fuller, richer sound. Now bring on Goldfrapp's BLACK CHERRY in 5.1 on BD~A!
