I would give this a 9 for "Neil's Diamonds" and a 10 for "Hugo In Wonderland." If this disc were just "Hugo in Wonderland" I wouldn't hesitate to give it a 10, so that's how I voted. This music may not be everyone's cup of tea, so maybe check out some YouTube clips first before you buy it, but I just freakin' love HIW!

A definate 10. My opinion is slightly different than jdmack. I give Neil's Diamond a 10 and Wonderland a 9. But both are very good musically and mix. Love them both. Thanks again to DV for releasing these quads, and the sonic quality is great.

Wow! Was what I blurted out within the 1st second of play- no kidding. Will get another listen under my belt before a more detailed write up. Exceeded ALL expectations.

This disc has grown on me big style.

A very easy 10. The surround mixes are state of the art. The sound quality is superb. The arrangements are top notch. There are indeed some gorgeous sounds coming from all corners of the room.

Everything is completely different to the originals yet they all work out really well.

Anybody looking for some subtle ambiance in the rear speakers might consider looking elsewhere. Me? I'm hoping that there will be a lot more coming from where this came from! It's divine.
