This is one of the greatest 5.1 mixes ever. The stereo transfer is very good too. Someone should reissue this!

This is one of the BEST multi-channel recordings out there - hands down. If you love this lp as much as I do, then spend the unheard amount to own it. I would easily pay $100 for it now. Luckily I bought it at Best Buy for under $20 when it was released.

Brilliant, lush early 80s artpop. This Bob Ludwig SACD version is breathtakingly beautiful--open, full of space, detailed, balanced. This specific version of this particular recording is what "high resolution" is supposed to be about.
