There is a sticker on the front jewel case saying "DELUXE EDITION Including bonus DVD featuring 5.1 version of Playing The Angel, Making The Angel documentary, Precious video and exclusive performance of Clean".
DVD contains the entire "Playing The Angel" album in either LPCM Stereo, DTS 5.1 & Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround and has a running time of 52:40. DVD tracks 2 to 4 are in LPCM Stereo. All Photos in the Photo Gallery taken by Ben Hillier.
Official release date is Monday the 17th October 2005, but available via Mute Germany on Friday the 14th October 2005.

The booklet mistakenly credits Dave McCracken as the piano player in "I Want It All". However, there is no piano in "I Want It All". He really should be credited for the piano in "The Darkest Star."

Something weird about this album on SACD for me... Back in 2005, when kids were sharing music over bluetooth, I had received a file called Precious.mp3. I've stumbled across it recently when digging through my old hard drives, and decided to plug it into iZotope for laughs.
Turns out, that no-breed bastard mp3 had been a SACD rip! Meaning, someone had the audacity to buy a SACD player, buy this album, plug it into their PC, record the thing (no scad rippers yet) and release it into the wild.
No-name hero, I salute your dedication.

It's a shame that the mastering(as it was previously mentioned) for both the CDDA & DVD tracks is a mess, not very enjoyable.
So I ripped the SACD content for myself, hoping... It worked!
SACD mastering is fine, after a little levelling/amplifying/converting into more convenient format & it sounds far better.
