If I'm not mistaken, the only Twenty One Pilots album I've seen mentioned in this thread is Scaled And Icy, their latest. But their three previous albums are also in Atmos on Apple, and have been for weeks. This is really not my kind of music, but the band is a favorite of my teenage kids, so I've heard a lot of them by osmosis. And I'm pretty impressed by the surround mixes (note I'm only hearing them in 5.1, don't have an Atmos system), which are quite discrete and really well done, I think. So if you're into this band at all, these are worth checking out:

does talk over music bother you?
The talk overs are brief and infrequent on this one, so it wasn’t a problem for me. There are music programs with talk overs that drive me crazy, especially if it’s a musical “expert“ like Whoopee Goldberg!

Grateful-ly enjoying the Deadication.


Dave McMurray was unfamiliar with the Grateful Dead until he sat in with Wolf Bros., featuring Bob Weir on guitar, in 2018. But that lack of history works to this album’s advantage, because Grateful Deadicationfocuses not on the Dead’s instrumental style, but on their songs.

That’s most evident on “Dark Star,” a tune that has been the basis for many an extended jam. Here, the emphasis is on the loose, shuffling groove, with almost half the seven-minute playing time given over to the head. Likewise, “Eyes Of The World” is less about stretching out than working a lithe jazz/soul groove, while “Franklin’s Tower” fully celebrates Latin rock roots the Dead’s original only gestured toward.

“Loser,” which boasts an eloquently weary vocal by Bettye LaVette, is the most Dead-indebted performance here, and if the rest doesn’t quite make a case for the band’s repertoire as potential jazz standards, Grateful Deadication will certainly become the smooth-jazz of choice for aging Deadheads.

I'm sitting here watching tennis at Wimbledon on mute...

As I've finally added over 50 releases from the past couple of weeks to my library, as highlighted here, by fellow QQ stalwarts (y) :SG

Are the Atmos engineers upping their game ? as I've not heard one duff release!!

I'm lucky enough to be retired and I still don't find the time to give all these releases my full attention...:(

But what a fantastic position to be in. So spoilt for choice!!

I still pinch myself that Apple has only been offering Dolby Atmos releases for a year and they still keep on giving.

I just went through my library and found it remarkable how much classic stuff is on there, I'd say it's as least as much if not more than what we've been treated to on a yearly basis in the form of deluxe physical reissues. The Doors, Tom Petty, Temptations, Supremes, Beatles, Elton John, George Michael, David Bowie, Bob Marley, Pearl Jam, STP, The Ramones, etc - and that doesn't even include the dozens of CBS '70s quads and Sony 5.1 mixes from the '00s in Dolby Audio.

This could be interesting--although I haven't listened to the mix yet:
Beal, who works in both classical & jazz, has done a lot of scoring for film and TV. This piece was commissioned to celebrate Leonard Slatkin's 50th anniversary with the Saint Louis Symphony. Don't know anything about the label (Supertrain Records), or who did the mix.

I listened to War of The Worlds last night. I can confirm it is a new Atmos mix, not the 5.1 , 5.1 upmixed. By the sounds of it I would say from the multitracks, not stems. Some of it is marvelous, some is not so great. Overall I suggest listening and judging for yourself. I would be interested to hear the thoughts of others on this.
