Vibrant performance and excellent engineering

Reviewer: Michael Graves
The recording quality of this SACD is excellent. The ambiance is natural and the instruments sound balanced. The sound stage is quite stable (which one should expect from an SACD, but doesn't always get). What really pleased me was the quality of the performance. It is obvious these people truly enjoy what they are doing and that pleasure makes its way to the listener. If you are looking for music you've never heard before but will enjoy forever, this is a good choice. Unless, of course, your preference is head-pounding rock and roll. In that case, you will hate this disk.

Great introduction to SACD

There was one factor when I purchased this SACD. The low price. I knew nothing about the group or the music they play. I wanted a pretty cheap introduction to the world of SACDs. That said, I must say this is a fantastic recording. It sounds wonderful on my entry level system (Onkyo C-S5VL SACD player, Jolida JD102CRC Integrated Tube Stereo Amp and Pioneer SP-BS41-LR speakers). I felt like my apartment had been turned into a small concert hall and I had the best seats in the house. I have played the CD several times and I am amazed by the sound.
