agreed! this one's an absolute killer. beautiful.Ed Bishop said:A '9'....might be a smidgen of room for improvement, but this is an exceptional title and glorious mix...."Isn't Life Strange" is simply fantastic!
They were listening to something, just not sure exactly what...jaybird100 said:A stunning recording. The surround mix is excellent, and it shows that the original quad mix CAN be reworked to include LFE and center. Are you listening, Universal?
Howdy: Just got this (I'm late to the fray) and think that the overall mix is great. I've been a Moody's fan since..oh..1976 or so, but have never heard the quad mix of this, is the DTS 5.1 derived from it? I don't have a "Hi-End" system but it seemed that the center channel was rather weak for me, if that is a result of adapting the quad mix then that is not a problem. In fact, I am fine with it if it is mainly a 4 channel mix! I thought it was quite discrete in the back channels, mainly acoustic guitar and percussion on most tracks which went well with keeping the vocals and Justin's lead guitar in front. Really opened up the sound to have it this way..more "airy" (dare I use that word?) and not as dense in each speaker as hearing it in stereo.
My first DTS disc, so I'm quite pleased. Will be adding to the DTS library, I only hope that DTS Entertainment continues to do so. I would not call it a perfect mix, but I'd certainly give it an 8.5. John S.
Frisky,Gave this a 9. I've owned it for several years and still listen to it regularly. Great music, great mix and the sound quality itself, while a bit bright on my system, is also excellent - sounds like it was recorded yesterday.
Minor quibble (this didn't affect the score): I wish DTS would provide some nice graphics on the disc itself that befit this classic - and classy - music. Right now the graphics look like what's on industrial testing gear.
Long Distance Voyager was in there somewhere.8. I'm Just a Singer, For My Lady and Isn't Life Strange are among their best. Some of the others are a bit thin. You can hear their enthusiasm waning. They broke up after this. They reunited in '77 for the absolutely dreadful Octave...
