Okay, I've played the 5.1 a few times (the dvd as the blu-ray won't go in my Panasonics...grr....hope the fix comes soon) and listened to the 2.0 non-stop in the car for the last week or so.
Any news on when (or if) a Panasonic capable version will be released? I would love to listen to it but I only have the single disc Blu-ray version :(

Since it seems the issue seems to be specific to Panasonic I would *hope* that it can be resolved with a firmware update rather than the hassle of new discs, but that means having the record company, player company, disc author company all working together to provide a solution for the customer.

As The Pineapple Thief are perhaps not huge sellers, and the affected Panasonic player customers are a small group, I may guess it's one of those problem discs that will just get put aside and be (hopefully) forgotten over time.

If I'm out of line, and yes, I cannot squarely place the blame anywhere except to say that as a customer *all* involved ought to provide a resolution to a paying customer - especially of a "super-deluxe" package. I'm fortunate I guess - I can hear the 5.1 in DTS or in the other room on my Oppo, but those Panasonic customers that bought the blu-ray seem to be s.o.l.

I usually do not vote, but this Blu-ray deserves a 10. This is my second favourite album by TPT (first one being Magnolia) and the mix is spectacular, perhaps the best one (for a newly recorded album) in 2018.
Everything has been done in a tasteful and effective way, bravo, Bruce!
And now...When will your back catalogue remixed in surround? :cool:

I can't seem to get enough of this disc lately. The main album is excellent--favorite tracks include "Try As I Might", "Threatening War", and "White Mist"--with a nice 5.1 mix (a bit dialed-back compared to Your Wilderness though), but what really keeps me coming back are the 'unplugged' surround mixes. These are absolutely incredible at high volume - Bruce is loud and clear in the center, shakers and backing vocals are in the rears, and different acoustic guitars pick away all around you. There's also some really interesting surround effect on the electric guitar parts - sometimes the echo/feedback slowly swirls around the room or ping-pongs from speaker-to-speaker. I voted a "9" before, but the amazing acoustic tracks may push this one into "10" territory for me.

Listening to the Unplugged tracks now per your suggestion, Jonathan. Totally forgot how fantastic they are! Bruce is rapidly developing into the next in the relatively short line of vaunted surround mixers. I know some find Bruce and Pineapple Thief’s music a bit boring, but I love the melancholia on display.

The alt tracks for the new album will feature Gavin on percussion. Can. Not. Wait.
