This pretty much blew my mind when it first came out--and I still think that Elliot Scheiner did a really nice job expanding it to surround despite the relatively limited instrumentation--but I don't remember it being so...bright. The cymbals in particular seem to really "sizzle" to the point where some of the instrumentation, such as the guitar overdubs and backing vocals that pop up in the rears, seem somewhat veiled. I really want to crank the volume, but it gets fatiguing pretty quickly. I dunno if I'm gonna go back and change my review and vote from July 2018, but it's interesting how your perception of something can change after the excitement factor wears off.

What’s this?! Is this high res, or quad? Tell me more please😁
Sean, it's a 192/24 BD~A transfer from a Decca QUAD dolby b Open Reel Tape. It's transferred by HDTT on state of the art equipment and sounds amazing and VERY discrete. Probably the only Hi Res QUAD album available conducted by composer/conductor Bernard Herrman himself.
