Clean SACD recording of McEvoy's new low key import. Highest quality of recording that anyone would expect, I just had a hard time listening to it. The 5.1 mix is nice and wide... and clean, but, the vocals are tightly bound to the center channel and it can be distracting. I preferred the 2 chan. mix on some songs.. 5.1 on others. Outside of the vocals, there is very little to distract you from the low key, almost acoustic, blues style.. McEvoy fans will not be disappointed, but expect to only listen to this when you are looking to chill. The album never really picks up and rocks even on the up beat "Days Roll By". Buy this after Yola, and get that after What's Following Me.
