I second everything you have said here. Although the use of various channels for the source of instruments and such is not realistic as far as a live setting would be, this disc is a showcase for how MCh can sound great and be entertaining with the use of the surround channels. You can virtually "see" the drum hits on this disc. Very engaging disc, my bias to the material aside, this disc has to me a more realistic warm sound than say DSOTM, which is very good but seems a little detached and cold for my tastes. So far this is my favorite SACD recording, hopefully we will have many more titles to come to challenge the position I place this disc in.bugdaddy said:Roxy’s best and most fully-realized album is lovingly crafted in 5.1 by the same folks who originally produced/engineered. One of my favorite non-Elliot Scheiner mixes. It washes over the room with warmth and grace, and works wonders as a convincing demo disk for listeners steeped in this musical era. Even includes a bonus track. A 10 all the way.
If that's what you're looking for, you've come to the wrong place!keenan said:Although the use of various channels for the source of instruments and such is not realistic as far as a live setting would be.
