"Analogue Productions has followed up on their highly acclaimed series of 25 RCA Living Stereo SACDs with a smaller group of 9 Decca SACDs. ... Mehta has made a specialty out of Mahler's Third Symphony. The massive first movement, with its outstanding inner detail of the lower registers of the orchestra, may be the best ever recorded, especially if you are primarily considering the sound." — Arthur Lintgen, The Absolute Sound, Feb. 8, 2019.

From the opening moments it hits you that this is a strikingly well recorded and remastered performance with elegant balance. No harshness, no distortion, nothing out of place. Very very good. Highly recommended.
