A lot of QQers chide Chesky for ambient only surrounds but played at a robust volume, IMO, all the Chesky SACDs are PURE AUDIOPHILE RECORDINGS!
I'm fine with it because it's not trying to be anything other than what it is- a realistic audiophile, "You are there" live type front stage recording!

BTW, one of the only discrete Chesky Multi~CH SACDs in my collection and highly recommended

It was recorded in the historic St Peter's RC Church in New York City [Est.1785] and if you listen intently it will put you in a trance like mood. And being that it was recorded in a church it will ensure that ALL DOGS GO TO HEAVEN, including J. PUPSTER

Nice package deal here if you like great Electronic / Ambient Quad music (this stuff is very discrete sounding to me- more than typical ambient!)

Pretty sure I paid up for my copy Baggy! Looks like on discogs it ranges from about $125-400 for that beauty; but I'd bet you already know all about that. Not sure I'm ready to let go of my copy just yet.

Now the Destiny's Child SACD, I might actually have an extra copy of that one (they seem to be much easier to obtain than the Beyoncé.) Seems like the Destiny's Child has several different releases, I'd imagine the same mix on all but not sure. I believe I read somewhere there was some licensing issues or something with the artist, leading to it being pulled early from the market, for that Beyoncé, but check me on that! Both were mixed by our man @ThomC. Like I said, the mix was good on the Beyoncé, but I seem to remember thinking the Destiny's Child mix sounded unusual and almost experimental in nature (but it's been a long time since I checked it out.)

Maybe this will console you a little :unsure:

Have none of those ended up on Apple or Tidal yet?

I just bought this based upon your review!
Just received this today and giving it a listen. I like it, and I had no idea what to expect. As a teen, I was into synthesizers in recordings. So the first track was a trip back. Second track could easily be BS&T. Anyway, a pleasant change for me, glad I got it. …and boy, what a tragic story of the band.
