A rare instance in which the sonics of a DVD-Audio release far exceed those of the corresponding SACD. The latter may have been poorly mastered.

I ordered this from Amazon AU, and expected to get the EU version, as that's what the stores here stock instead of the US ver., unless that is the only option.

Well, I got this version instead and I'm a bit disappointed. It's noticeably bright and loud, and just a little uncomfortable to listen to.

It's certainly not the worst pressing I've heard, but it's rather disappointing that such a fantastic album has been pressed so questionably. The edges of both of the records on my copy were very rough and had bits of vinyl chipping off, and the first disc is pretty audibly warped. Both discs are more dirty than they should ever be - considering I bought this brand new - but there really isn't much surface noise to speak of other than the occasional pop or click. I can live with that, but I know plenty of people who would find this unacceptable for such a recent pressing.

The presentation is far more iffy, in my opinion. The artwork is very clearly JPEG'd, which I was willing to forgive since it was done digitally back in 2002, but they really couldn't have sourced a better version of the artwork? Did they lose the master images or something? The labeling not having what tracks are on each side/disc is annoying, but it's manageable since it's all on the back of the sleeve anyways. The gatefold is kind of wonky and won't stand up on its own even with both discs removed. This can be a problem with some gatefolds in my experience, so I won't knock it for being that way. Still, it's kind of annoying to me personally since I like propping up the sleeve while listening to the record, it adds to the experience to me.

Overall, I've heard good things and bad things about this pressing. My copy appears to be one of the duds, but you might luck out with yours if I'm inclined to be optimistic. If you're willing to take the risk, the mastering sounds pretty clean to my ears and it sounded great on my pretty above-average setup. I suppose if you get a bad copy, you can always look into exchanging it possibly, but that's not always something you can do. Either way, at the end of the day (get it?) it's a far better alternative for us who can't or aren't willing to shell out an absurd amount of money for the MFSL pressing.

Looking for a cover in NM- condition. I let mine sit sealed for too long and it developed seam splits. If you have just the cover for sale, get in touch. I'll pay any reasonable price.

Mine has a HDCD layer. Sounds ethereal. I believe all copies of this release have the HDCD; but there is no mention I can see on the disc or packaging; my player shows the disc or file type. I've played the red book layer on a "superior" cd player and much prefer the HDCD!

Looking for a cover in NM- condition if anyone's willing to sell. Left my copy sealed for too long and it developed seam splits.

Overpriced? ....it is what it is....it's limited to ~1000 compared to several 1000+ of other release. Limited Green Halo XBox, Topps Tom Brady rookie blue refractor, Nike Orange Air Force 1, ...whatever ( I'm using these as references I don't know if they produced orange Air Force 1)...they're the same exact product but slightly changed and run in limited quantities, ....collectors enjoy having something not everyone has....this is nothing new.
And if you don't even own this release how sad to post a comment under this section...always feel free to private message me if you have something to say keyboard gangsta's
