Good

4 Stars
Posted by Anonymous

I don't think I can ever see any album less than 88khz at the very least getting 5 stars from me. The album and sound are good don't get me wrong but if anyone is screaming for a higher resolution recording it would be Lindsey Stirling. I very much hope that that happens. She needs to be set free!

Enjoyable but underwhelming

4 Stars
Posted by Frank

This album does not impress me compared to other high res albums. There isn’t great seperatation, the vocals frequently sound quite muffled. The sound quality is also least impressive in the first couple of tracks, so the album really is kind of a let down on your first listen. (Others might argue this is all a function of the source material)

That said, the fidelity is there and the details open up at higher volume levels. The bass is very nice. Things pop out that remind me that i’m listening to a high res track.

If you are a fan of the artist or the genre, it’s worth a download. However, it won’t go on the playlist you use to impress your friends.

Brickwalled to death

Between the brickwalled sound and the live versions of the Capitol recordings, this set just plain sucks. It's unlistenable. Don't waste your money.

Must have for all PF fans!

I have loved Pink Floyd since 1970. In my opinion these were some of their best songs. Both of these performances are outstanding. These are not the meticulously rehearsed live performaces of later years. This music is raw and exciting. If you love Ummagumma and More, you will love Dramatis/ation. These songs are very different variations than the album. In these recordings you can hear the outstanding organ work of the late great Rick Wright. The audio quality is excellent. The price is reasonable too considering your getting 25 songs.

I have quite a variety of music down loads, cd's, and vinyl. This must be poor mastering. The bass is out of control, overbearing.

Better than Bruce

5 Stars
Posted by Peter Hyatt

This is one of the most under-rated albums of rock history. Edgy, gorgeous horns and vocals and the hi res plays beautifully. I'm using Chord Hugo 2 DAC with Beyerdynamic T1 (2nd gen) headphones. The horns are crystal clear and John Lyon's vocals are rich and deep. You get Stevie Van Zandt writing and Jersey soul sound from a singer who could have made it in opera. Great blend.

Soulful Fun

Posted by Peter Hyatt

One of my favorite all time bands, this intro album is terrific. It has soul, rock, blues and fun all by a terrific singer, tight band and fabulous horns. The hi res recording is nice. Great detail, especially of percussion and horns. I've had it since the 70's but jumped at the chance to get it in high resolution.

Based on the music alone (CD copy)...

4 Stars
Posted by BarneyRubble

This is definitely worth a listen! I used to refer to Spock's Beard as "the prog band that sounds like Styx". Now, I'm tempted to refer to Styx as "the band that sounds like Spock's Beard", as they're getting a little proggier themselves. At times ("Gone, Gone, Gone", "Radio Silence" at times referred to by fans as "Man in the Wilderness II", and my personal favorite "The Greater Good") it even approaches radio-friendly levels... well, radio-friendly back when radio was a bit more open than just the three common formats nowadays ("hits", "country" and "preteen daydreams"). Sound references appear from Night Ranger-era 1980's to (surprise!) Styx' pre-Tommy Shaw years. Treat yourself! CAVEAT: I have only listened to the CD version, so I remain somewhat iffy on the promised "analog" sound of the vinyl and digital download. I am somewhat concerned about an "analog" recording being limited at 88-kHz... blame that on my micro-precise timing preferences gleaned from my SACD habit.

Pretty Amazing Sound

5 Stars
Posted by Anonymous

This is my favourite Beach Boys' record and arguably their best sounding recording. I had previously purchased the FLAC 192 and it sounds excellent, but the DSD sounds more open and detailed and the synth generated low notes authentically reproduce the Moog's sound.

This album has really grown on me over the years and resonates with me the most of any Beach Boy's records.

Great Content - Overly Compressed Recording

3 Stars
Posted by Jason

I had high hopes for the quality of this recording. Unfortunately, for an 88.2/24 release it is far to compressed to do the format any justice.

Due to the brickwalled compression, I wouldn't recommend this recording in high resolution format. The 44.1/16 is more than enough to reproduce what the engineers gave us.

Now as for the material... It is absolutely fantastic! If you like Mastodon, this is one of their best pieces of work. The content holds a special place with the lyricist (I will let you go down that rabbit hole yourself) and it shows on this very well put together production.

I only wish the engineers had given us something more delicate to support the program material.

In summary, if you own this already on CD or vinyl, you wont get much more out of this release. It is a fair price and if you don't have it already it's worth picking up. Just don't expect to be blown away by any increased detail in the 88.2/24 release.

5 stars for content, 3 stars for sound.

The soundstage is simple and analog tape hiss is revealed at track finish. Nonetheless, this one of my absolute favorite recordings. Great presence and vitality, rewarding of high fidelity gear, and a lot of fun musically.

This hi res download takes the music to a whole new realm of listening. Joni's voice is still detailed and "present" as on the CD, but what really shines on this file over the CD are the orchestrations - very lush and sweeping. The sound stage is WIDE WIDE open and there is some nice separation among all of the instruments; lots of air and space around them. Incredibly nice on the ears throughout the entire file. I love Joni's re-interpretation of her "A Case of You" from Blue; but on this download it sounds even more intimate than the CD. It's as if she is right in the room and singing to a small crowd. Compared to the other Joni downloads from Elecktra/Warner - this one stands out as the "best" as it is actually improvement over the CD - which was already well mastered. No regrets on this one!

Great Recording, Poor Performance

2 Stars
Posted by Steve Heronemus

This recording does, as stated in the professional reviews, present an extremely life-like representation of a live performance. There are fantastic dynamics and the clarity is stunning - to the point of revealing the occasional audience cough. Unfortunately the performance is uneven at best. There are pitch problems and the horns in particular had a rough night, with several glaring missed notes. I found Mr. Dmitriev's leadership cautious and, at times, plodding. Perhaps he knew his orchestra was overmatched. There are a few fine performances of the "Leningrad" on DSD. This is not one of them.
