I have the CD and thought the DSD would blow me away like SD Goucho (really incredible). Perhaps a guitar driven album will reduce the expectations. I had to really push my system to get the quality of Goucho. I share the aforementioned reviews. Still, the album will be on my short list.

1976 sounds wonderful again!

So pleased with this one, it's not mind-blowing but it's powerful and rich with plenty to appreciate. To me it's an honest and accurate recording as it should be. When you've heard these songs thousands of times and still find nuances or details that leave you smiling and feelin' satisfied, it's more than Too much? Ok. I'm happy to have this one in my library. (Dragonfly Red, Sony NW-ZX300 with Shure 846, UE Triple Fi 10 Pro and Super Fi 5 Pro and Grado PS500e used.)

Great music, and the mix is as it always was.

I have heard gripes about the sound quality on this edition. After listening to it, I can only say: this is the master as it was back in the '70s... if you liked it then and don't now, it's probably because you now have a higher-end system. Suffice to remember that 8 out of 9 tracks on this album were actually recorded in Tom Scholz' basement, and were being transferred from 1/4-inch reel to 1/2-inch reel while the rest of the band was in the studio with producer John Boylan, recording "Let Me Take You Home Tonight" (and the sonics on that track are obviously different... hear for yourself). This is the album as I remember it, and I have a Sony Mastersound CD and LP, a Columbia House LP issue, and a couple of 8-tracks. I cannot claim to have heard the original US first press LP (the famed one), but as far as I'm concerned, this DSD maintains the same mix and sound while benefitting from the increased fidelity offered by DSD, which even 24/192 WAV can't match. Enjoy. I will.
