It's funny, but when I first got this disc, I still liked Two Against Nature better, but now I MUCH prefer this one. The title track, to me, is killer. Just goes to show how different things can be perceived by different folks.QR-GUY said:I really love this band and would consider them one of my biggest favorites. The sound and mix is outstanding but the musical content just didn't have the magic that their previous albums had. I gave it a "6".
And it must sound GREAT in that TL!JonUrban said:It's funny, but when I first got this disc, I still liked Two Against Nature better, but now I MUCH prefer this one. The title track, to me, is killer. Just goes to show how different things can be perceived by different folks.
Because certain players, like mine, have trouble handling the page turn. Every time the page turns automatically on the stereo mix of ANATO, for instance, there is an audible dropout (a slight pause). Also, it seems to disable other features. On Pet Sounds, when you choose auto lyrics, you can no longer access the photo gallery, credits, liner notes, etc. When you choose manual advance, all features are restored.bobou2 said:As much as I love having the lyrics, I hate these discs that do not change the lyric pages. Queen and the Beach Boys discs do so why not all of them?
Illogical, my captain. Since when do any of those people have anything to do with the SONGS?blackbirdr said:This disc must go... Sound is great. Lousy songs.
What is missing?
Denny Dias, Jeff "Skunk" Baxter, Mike McDonald, Jeff Porcaro, Larry Carlton & the list goes on.
I agree--on this and Two Against Nature, Gaucho and both Fagen solo DVD-As, I felt the same. Very predictable, unimaginative surround mixes. And still, that sterile sound, since Gaucho, gets less appealing over the years.steelydave said:As others have said, the sonics of this album are superb. I was slightly disappointed with the mix, it's a bit of a 'set it and forget it' mix (as someone coined it in another thread). The instruments are always in exactly the same place and I while I know they were going for a slightly more stripped down live feel with this album, I don't think a little more creativity in sound field placement would have gone amiss.
Musically I don't even care for it anymore. I prefer Two Against Nature by a small amount, but neither get much play anymore. As big a Dan fan as I've been over the years, these rank as "average" IMHO.daved64 said:Sound and mix is amazing, but ask me when the last time I played it was.....
