I’m just bummed the powers that be made this in such limited quantities that it was literally OOP the month it was released depriving me and plenty of other surround enthusiasts. Major bummer!I voted 10. The best surround release of 2020? Of course I have not heard all of them but my personal best of 2020? I think? I love everything about this release from packaging, liner notes, lyrics, photos, on screen menu and box.
I listened to the 5.1 disc from my Sony UBP-X800M2. I listened to the DTS 24/96 selection.
I loved hearing the first track as an instrumental, it really got me in the groove of sitting in and listening to the music without worrying about words.
The Steven Wilson mix was sublime, I think of others he has done and this is certainly one of his crowning achievements.
The surround pans around very fun and entertaining, the center speaker used in perfect SW style.
Obviously what is the #1 reason for loving this release is that it is great music from Ultravox, whom I never listened to back in the day. Really a breath of fresh air in the 2020 surround release catalog.
It would be cool to go back to 1980 and be a member of the live audience, I'm sure lots of styles and hair.
FYI: I got dumped by Amazon and Burning Shed came right in and fulfilled my order within 9 days, impressive.
