101% agree with you, Cai.Cai Campbell said:Holy crap! The power and the majesty... an incredible surround-sound experience. Another example of the perfect marriage between music and surround mix. A head-banging 10!
I agree on both counts. I think I have played it 3 times. I like Metallica but the sonics amd mix on this one sucks.mdphunk said:Funny...just listened to this disc yesterday for the first time in a few months. While I love the original album, I think this disc left much to be desired, so I went with at "5" on this one.
Two things I go for on DVD-A are sound quality and surround mix. The sound quality is ok, but way too compressed for my taste. The only things that sound much better than on the CD are the voices (especially the child's voice on Enter Sandman) and the orchestra on Nothing Else Matters.
Additionally, the surround mix suffers greatly. For the most part, it's all up front with a lot of ambiance (especially drums) in the rears...then, suddenly, a guitar circles around the room. I like a mix with a lot of consistant action in 360 degrees, so this mix didn't really work for me.
Yea, I like that song. This dvd-audio disk has apparently been re-issued and is in the new style super jewel case with the fatter hinge. Picked it up at Best Buy a few days ago for $14.99.Certainly a fun energetic 5.1 mix. My favorite track to demo with this disc is "Nothing Else Matters."
