Really not sure why this 5.1 mix has such an average reputation. If this had a poll, I'd give it an 8. The sound quality is superb, the album is very enjoyable with long, proggy songs that never drag or bore. The mix is subtle, but tastefully and deliberately discrete. It opens up the music and has more activity in the rears than you'd expect from its reputation. Always something going on. I like it!

As I basically "ignored" Marillion back in the day, and just gained interest with the recent SW remixes, I totally missed this one, ordered now. Geez, I ought to be checking out all the other stuff at their shop huh?
Same here, I never listened to them "back in the day". But I do now, getting all their albums, one by one, excellent music - and some of it in surround (y)

In light of the recent Marillion reissues from Warner/Parlophone, I thought you all would like to know that Marillion are holding a Flash Sale this weekend on their in-stock DVDs & Blu-Rays, including this release from 2014, which contains the entire "Sounds That Can't Be Made" studio album in high-res 5.1 surround on one of the three Blu-ray Discs:

I had the A Sunday Night Above... set and sold it. If my memory is correct, the 5.1 mixes of the live material and the album was mostly ambiance.

Not sure why this release never got a poll back in the day, but that has now been rectified:
