I have the Surround Sound SACD of the album here. The Surround Sound is good on some tracks, but not on others. I think a score in the middle is probably most representative of the release.I dont think i have seen a disc with as even a spread of results accross the score board, from love to hate.
I have to say I am in the dissappointed category for this one. maybe ill give it a spin again some time see if its improved on my recollections of it.
The producer's comments are in the SACD booklet as well as a note about Universal Music International (U.K.) supervising the mix.This is an *excellent* surround release. If you guys read the producer's note (it's in the DVD-A booklet, don't know about the SACD) Visconti explicity aimed to retain the 'sound' of the original mix, with surround as sweetening -- no gimmicky stuff here. Good for him. I rate this as one of the best discs out there.
