Now I am ready to vote after spinning the DVD-A 5.1 a few times more. It is perfect in its genre, but since I happen to like Porcupine Tree's music an itch more more and gave the fantastic Lightbulb Sun 10 points, I have to reduce this grade to a 9.I received my copy yesterday and have listened once to the 5.1 lossless and once to the bonus CD.
- Sonics and mix as good as you expect from Steven Wilson, meaning a pure 10
- Music is very good and a little more varied than on their last release, a 9
- Package and artwork is really top notch, on par with Lightbulb Sun
- Very nice menus in anamorphic widescreen, why is not all menus done in this format?
- Some audible static pops like on the Lightbulb Sun in the menus.
- The bonus CD is very nice with sometimes really alternative versions of the songs.
First the Lighbulb Sun CD/DVD-Audio combo and then this release with the DVD-Audio available from day one. Too good to be true...
I will spin it a few times more before I vote.
You are in for a treat, all of you who still is waiting for the mailman to deliver this little goodie.
