WOW! That all I’ve been saying since finishing my first listen through of the blu-ray after work. The surround mix is amazing.

Useless personal story follows

All of my music providers think I should like Pineapple Thief. Every time Ilve sampled them, I came back with a resounding meh. I added Variations of Truth to my Apple Music Library on release day, just to try again, and was surprised I liked it in he background while working. Instead of the normal podcast on my walk I listened to it again and really enjoyed it. Listened again while going to sleep and noticed Gavin’s drums and was still wide awake an hour later. Ordered it from Burning Shed the next morning. For some reason it hadn’t shipped by yesterday morning, it looked to be back ordered. Put an order in with Amazon yesterday morning and was here for lunch today.

End of personal stuff

I put the blu-ray on in in my office while working, but my desk isn’t in the best position and I wasn’t concentrating on the music, I’d did notice some interesting stereo type affects with the drums between the left front and surround.

Setting myself up in the basement after work, where I could concentrate and turn up the volume, I fell in love. The sound is amazing and the mix of the main album was just great. It took a little while for it to sink in, I’ve been moving things around for music, since surround is this months pandemic coping method. made some adjustments and Stop Making Sense blew me out of my repositioned chair. I finished the album thrilled.

I selected the alternate version 5.1 without much of an expectation, I was just happy it was all in surround but figured they put their best effort into the primary release. I couldn’t have been more wrong. The mixes on the alternate tracks are so adventurous from beginning to end. The lyric placement of the last stanza of the alternate title track was inspired. A definite 10.


ps.

Post number 10! It only took 12 years and a pandemic.

I thought that was really clever too. Also loved how on the alternate "Demons", Bruce's last "it was only supposed to be a short-term thing" comes solely from the left rear channel.

Great to see your path to TPT. The main albums and the alternative/extra albums are always great. You basically get two surround albums for the price of one.

I love your Avatar. I was exposed to Riverside with a comp disc that came with a Burning Shed purchase. They have become a favorite of mine. I would love reissues of their early work in surround not to mention day and date surround releases of theirs and Lunatic Soul’s new releases.
