Too bad we cant have a choice of mixes like Monster music offered on some of their releases. A normal mix then something completely wild etc assuming the artist would allow it.

My question to you is how can SW make surround mix placements more adventurous without compromising the original sound and intent of the stereo mix? I think his instinct and approach is usually the right one, and very rarely do I feel like he can be more adventurous without comprising the original sound and intent. Plus there's always the artist approval factor which can affect how adventurous he can really be.
But the stereo mix is the stereo mix. Why would it be the same? There's probably several surround mixes you really like that don't take this approach, even though they may still retain the main feel of the track. In fact one album that really does lose the original feel in places: R.E.M.'s Green, you rated a 10. :)

Otherwise it's along the lines of:
"Hey you love The White Album? You've got to check out the mono mix too!"
- "Wow, really? How does it sound?"
"Almost identical, and exactly how you'd expect."
- "Nice!"

Personally, I tend to prefer surround mixes that respect the feel - in that I include the general perceived level of parts - of the original, but it has been done using other approaches which I find far more beguiling than Songs... Mind you I like a few surprises as well but careful with that reverb, Eugene.

The interviews could be very interesting: it was such a difficult album for them to make.

I won't be buying either of these because I already have them. But the news above about an Autumn release of Seeds Of Love, sounds great.

Guess I’ll have to purchase the Big Chair box. I’ve been on the search for the blu-Ray for a good price with little luck. I don’t know the album well except for the couple big hits so really don’t need all the extras from the set but that price is still lower then any of the Blu-Rays I’ve come across.
