Astounding

These remixes by Steven Wilson are pure genius. I've heard his remixes for XTC and other Tull records and they are great, but he steps into another league on this. So does Ian Anderson.

Remix Brings Out Nuance

As I listen to this 5.1 Surround remix I cannot help thinking that if the technology existed at the time this album was made, this is the way it would have sounded in the first place.

A Misunderstood Classic

5 Stars
Posted by Donald Scarinci

Steve Wilson's 5.1 Surround Sound remix of this Jethro Tull classic is a masterpiece that will now find the praise that it has always deserved. This album has never been appreciated for its genius, but the amazing sound of this remix will make a new generation of fans consider this album as the timeless work of art that it is.

Steven Wilson has done it yet again. I cannot believe the INCREDIBLE difference from past editions. It's truly amazing, and it includes an OUTSTANDING 5.1 mix, as well as different stereo versions. It sounds like a new, fresh recording by the band, that's how amazing this is. The detail and separation of instruments is nothing short of astounding and astonishing.

Stay away from Audio Fidelity's SACDs they have NO idea how to actually improve on what has been released in the past. All they do is copy old recordings without improving them in the least.

"Steven Wilson" ---- a name you can trust. Buy it, you will NOT be disappointed.

I'm not a big King Crimson fan but I like this album. And this reissue is an Ace! It presents the best of DVD-A sound, with a propulsive bottom end, detailed but un-etched highs, and a robust mid-range. Don't miss it!

If you are a Talking Heads fan, you should also seek out their DVD-A's. Just as good, and with a lot of audio and video extras.

Remastered - Golden Age Recording/Performance

5 Stars
Posted by drdanfee

This reading has been a fav since vinyl LP. Then regular CD when it was coupled with Rachmaninoff Symphonic Dances. Now it is yet again brilliantly remastered, CD plus HighRes DVD Audio. Just playing the red book CD back on headphones right now shows how much it has been cleaned up. Wow. Goossens and LSO take it slower than comparable virtuoso readings, and thus to my ears the reading is more brutally or primitively apt to the subject. Pricey? Yes. But probably worth it, sonically and as an exemplar reading. Makes me want to strongly investigate other releases in this series which promise similar sonic and performance values. Like the early test stereo Reiner-Chicago recording of Richard Strauss Also sprach Z., this series has yet to be bested in some ways, even given strong technical and musical advances in the time since first canned. Highly recommended.

I got this disc as I had always liked Khachaturian's Sabre Dance. I picked this version as the write-up on it here at Acoustic Sounds described it as a lively rendering of the work. Neither the write-up, the performance or the HDAD disc disappoint on that score. In fact, I'd say if anyone claims classical music is boring, hand them this one as they obviously haven't heard it! Energy, Vitality, Enthusiasm are how I'd describe it. Even the slow pieces ripple with a subtle sense of passion and life. Including a CD is a nice touch as it can be played in the car or in a portable. You'll want to hear the DVD-Audio when you can, though, for as much as the CD is convenient, the DVD-Audio flat-out rules for sound. I just love how strings, horns and percussion come to life on DVD-Audio. Check out the track Lezghinka for an example. Not only does the percussion come to life but the reverberations in the hall are also wonderfully presented. This disc is a definite "keeper".

This recording was purchased for a friend as a joke; I'm coming clean here. This was a gag gift and it turned out the joke was on me. This has to be one of the most fantastic recordings I've ever heard. These songs are spectacular and..., well, French, but you owe it to yourself to give it a listen. If you own state of the art equipment, you WILL BE BLOWN AWAY!

Meridian 808 to the rescue!

5 Stars
Posted by Ralph A. Mazzeo, Jr.

High Resolution recordings need high resolution players and cabling and for my money, the re-issues from Classic Records in the HDAD format are brilliantly executed. These Malcolm Sargent 35mm recordings of Respighi's most famous warhorses come vibrantly alive in 192/24 bit and the CD which accompanies it sounds equally enthralling. Classic Records, how about reissuingthe Gershwin and Ravel Works for Orchestra in remastered 2007 sound (even though they, too, sound magnificent on the Meridian 808 in 96/24 1998 sound! Enough said.......
