I didn't buy the Blu-Ray, never heard of them before, but I did give it a listen on Tidal and I'm really digging it. The mix is really lush and immersive, but hugely discrete but it really does surround you. The music is quite cool and I found myself liking this brand of electronica. I give it a 9, now I wish I could get the physical version 😅.

I was flabbergasted by how wonderful this disc sounds. Guaranteed to improve the sound of any system. Stephen Lipson's remix [I only heard the 5.1], IMO, is text book and the bass riveting.

KUDOS to SDE for arranging to have this BD~A released and hopefully there will be many more to come.

A new FAVORITE and IMO, a very solid 10.

Yeah, generally this is not the kind of style I reach for too often, but electronic music can just sound SO good in surround... Atmos even more so. Not wanting to pigeonhole, I might at a high level call this "adult-oriented, downtempo electronic pop with some organic elements". Really immersive, very cool use of the heights here and there while also not being gimmicky... and surprisingly, pretty minimal use of the center. The mix is just spot-on, with really powerful bass that's right on the money and used artistically instead of "rattle yer bowels for the sake of a reaction". Competent song writing. Really enjoyable start to finish. I think I'm gonna go with an initial "8" outta the gate. I could see it growing into a 9 with a few more listens.
