5-0 out of 5 stars Eloquent and Excellent
John Mayer is back and better than ever with Continuum.This album from this brilliant singer-songwriter is destined to be a classic.He eloquently, vocalizes the thoughts and fears of our generation from heartbreak to the fear of losing our parents and aging.He also does an excellent job of addressing social issues with the utmost class and without forcing his opinions on anyone.Kudos, John!I am pleased to see someone talented represent our generation, and I look forward to buying his music for many years to come.

5-0 out of 5 stars Satisfied
I was sitting up late Saturday night and turned it to Soundstage already in progress. I saw Buddy Guy on stage playing with this young guy I had never seen. I became enthralled with the performances but I never caught his name. So afterwards I looked up the Soundstage tv schedule and found out it was John Mayer. Did some further checking and found out about his turn toward the blues, and I love blues. Took a chance and bought the cd next day. Best music I've bought in a long time. No, it's not straight blues. But it's definitely honest. And in this day and time of kitsch glorification, I'll take it. I feel like my money was well spent. Can't say that for a whole lot of things I've bought.

5-0 out of 5 stars A wonderful, thoughtful album...
The fact that I am taking the time to post, speaks volumes about how special I think Continuum is...I often find myself "suckered" into buying a CD these days, because a track suggests that the rest of the album may prove to be a pleasant surprise. It is a bit like the movie trailer that entices you to head to the theater, only to be disappointed that you have already seen the only enjoyable part of the movie. Continuum is the exception to that unfortunate rule...It is an extraordinary piece of work. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Fresh Breeze Blowin
The music contained within this CD is simply brilliant, particularly when compared for what passes as commercial music these days.Dylan's songwriting and vocals are superb and his production efforts are flawless. The band is in top form and the mix is spot on.This project,as most of Dylan's recorded work, will stand the test of time. My only criticism is the absence of any acknowledgement for songwriting inspiration. Certainly at least a "tip of the hat"is deserved by Big Maceo Merriweather for his influence of Worried Life Blues for Someday Baby. Same goes for Hambone Willie Newbern as it relates to Rollin and Tumblin. Perhaps, we'll have to wait for the next chapter of Chronicles to acknowledge these artists.

5-0 out of 5 stars Like Wine
Like wine, and as another reviewer has already commented, Dylan really does get better with age... though that's not to detract at all from his past masterpieces. There are several in depth reviews written so I figure I can make this one short and sweet: the album is great and worth a listen whether you're a long time DYlan fan, a Dylan neophyte, or never cared for him (can't imagine many belonging to this last group...)

5-0 out of 5 stars Still Magical
Having grown up with hard rock and merging in to jazz with age,I'm not sure what prompted me to buy the album.I hadn't heard it or about it.Bob Dylan was just some wierd musician to me - This one album has changed all that; I'm a new Bob Dylan fan -Modern Times is pure musical magic.It is at the same time haunting, ironic, true, brilliant...(yes I'm beginning to purchase older stuff now..I've a lot of catch-up work to do!)One review labled the music "pedadantic" - likely not a musicians point of view.No it's not oversaturated with gizmo sound and yes it lacks the immediately catchy Brittany Spears pop sound.Bob Dylan is the wrong place to look for that anyway.Relax, reminisce, day-dream - older is sometimes better! ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Elegant Sequel to "Captain Fantastic", But It's More Reminiscent Of.......
Thirty-one years after "Captain Fantastic", Elton John and his long-time partner, lyricist Bernie Taupin, have quite literally returned to their roots in "The Captain and The Kid", yielding an album that sounds as fresh and poignant as their great mid 1970s album. And yet, it sounds more like a return to their earlier musical roots, most notably such classic early albums as "Tumbleweed Connection" and "Honky Chateau", than a full-fledged sequel that is also a satisfying conclusion to "Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy". All the praise that this album is acquiring so far is quite well earned; demonstrating that Elton's 21st Century musical revival - beginning with "Songs from The West Coast" - hasn't been a fluke. I doubt I have heard as consistently fine a collection of songs as those on this album; indeed, I have to search as far back as his early 1990s hit "The One" to find among his recent albums, one that isboth a great body of work, as well as yielding quite a few Elton John/Bernie Taupin hit singles. Without a doubt, "Captain and the Kid" should be regarded more as an album with a consistently great set of songs, due in no small measure to the introspective nature of Taupin's lyrics chronicling their history - both together and apart - since Elton's triumphant American debut in Los Angeles back in 1970, a memorable performance at Los Angeles' Troubadour Club. Moreover, Elton hasn't sung as well as in a long, long time, even if his youthful falsetto has given rise to a deeper, often richer, sound. And here on this album, he's often backed with classic harmonies from Davey Johnstone and Nigel Olsson - as well as the rest of the current Elton John band - bringing back fond memories of Elton singing with Davey, Nigel, and the late Dee Murray on his classic 1970s albums.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Stuff!
I have just about everything Elton has recorded and have seen him 21 times in concert.I buy his new releases on the day they come out and I have high expectations which are not always met.This CD not only meets, but exceeds my expectations. Several music genres are represented including: honky tonk, country, blues, folk, rockers and ballads.I love how he subtly uses pices of his older classics to add to or reinforce some of the newer lyrics.For example, in the verse to "Blues Never Fade Away" which is about loss, you can hear piano licks similar to "Candle In The Wind" reinforcing losing ones life at a young age.In the song "And The House Fell Down" about his druggie days, the chorus picks up to a beat reminiscient of "I'm Still Standing" which adds the meaning that he survived his druggie days and has become a better person for it.There is not one bad song in the set, but if I had to put them in order from best to least, it would be as follows:

I just realized this is the first Tom Petty CD i have ever bought. I bought it because I heard it on a radio program called "World Cafe'" and I was intrigued.

...To quote his song "You don't know how it feels" recorded some 13 years ago now on his last solo album "Wildflowers."That is a truly great album, and this latest one, "Highway Companion" is pretty good too.However, Tom is looking and sounding quite sleepy and stoned on album photos and music, which makes it all seem a little insincere.

4-0 out of 5 stars cd and dvd review
at first, your impression of how Dylan sings nowadays can be cringe-worthy. it's not his fault, it's just age that robs him of the ability to turn on a dime that any young person can do without thinking about it.
5-0 out of 5 stars A Great Record But What About...
Yes, the record is fantastic and timeless... but in all of these 59 lengthy, overly-authoratative and sometimes ethereal reviews there is not one mention of who is on the record playing the instruments accompanying Mr. Dylan. WHO IS ON THE RECORDING?
5-0 out of 5 stars He still has it after all these years
The album provides a very enjoyable experience. We know Bob Dylan is a jack of all trades and a master of nearly everything in the musical genre. From protest songs to love songs and then to break up songs. From acoustic, to electric, to gospel, and now onto 'modern times'. This is a feel good album through and through (...because it feels good to know that Bob still has it after all these years). The stand out tracks in my opinion are "Spirit in the Water", "Working Man's Blues #2", "Beyond the Horizon", and "Nettie Moore". If you like good music, then you'll enjoy this album for a very very long time. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars 5 stars because there aren't 6
I am so glad that Apple finally has gapless playback in iTunes 7.0 because I can finally hear this album in the way it is intended: no gaps and seamless segue between songs. I will have to buy one of the new iPods to get the same effect mobiile-wise.
5-0 out of 5 stars "Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way"
'Dark Side of the Moon' marks the point where Pink Floyd were catapulted from being a decent size rock/psychadelic band with a healthy following, into the realms of musical immortality. This album is an astonishing and groundbreaking achievement in terms of both its musical, and lyrical content.
5-0 out of 5 stars I wish I could give this less than 5 stars, but...
it's too damn good.Dark Side of the Moon, perhaps more so than any other album in rock and roll history, tends to be liked because of a certain cool factor (possibly tied with Nevermind and Zeppelin IV).Every stoner and wannabe stoner will put this in their top 5 and say things like "It's a trip,maaaaan", while making to sure to wear a Dark Side T-shirt to let everybody know they have cool status.Nevertheless, I must give credit where it is due, and this truly is one of the most innovative and pleasing works of the past 50 years.In fact, the only Pink Floyd album that tops it IMO is The Wall, which I would rank as the single greatest album of all time.

The Beatles last album just happens to be their best. Only the Beatles could get together one last time, dispite all the personal acrimony and substance abuse, and deliver the ultimate timeless swan song.
5-0 out of 5 stars plus one more star if you please.
All I can tell you is that this is the way a swansong SHOULD sound.Even though they had major issues amongst each other at this time,they along with producer George Martin put out one hell of an album.This time around George Harrison came up with two of his best in "Something" and (my favorite song on the album) "Here Comes The Sun".Although John's heart wasn't truly in it,he still contributed "Come Together" and "She's So Heavy".Both songs are John Lennon classics .Paul's major additives were the infamous second side/second half medley,and a McCartney classic in "You Never Give Me Your Money" and it's reprise during the medley.It's mind boggling how a group can evolve from "I Want To Hold Your Hand" to "Here Comes The Sun" in six years.

Editorial Review

Better known as the "White Album," this was meant to be the record that brought them back to earth after three years of studio experimentation. Instead, it took them all over the place, continuing to burst the envelope of pop music. Lennon and McCartney were still at the height of their powers, with Lennon in particular growing into one of rock's towering figures. But even McCartney could still rock, and the amazement on "Helter Skelter" was that he had vocal cords at the end. From Beach Boys knock-offs to reggae and to the unknown ("Revolution #9"), this has it all. Some records have Read more

Hi, my name's Joao, I have heard anything by this group from Starclub in Hamburg sessions to Twickenham outtakes and beyond to the Ringo Rotogravure and Wings @ the speed of sound and although this bunch is familiar for burning holes in people's pockets with their trite melodies (i would suggest maladies) and nonexistant depth in lyrics (think: 'I once had a girl', 'one to three four can I have a little more' and for instance 'because you're sweet and lovely girl I love you').
5-0 out of 5 stars The greatest album from the greatest band
If I were trapped on a deserted island for eternity and could only have one album with me to pass the time, it would be the White Album. It is the most diverse, interesting and well crafted album ever made. The songs range from rock to country to surfer rock to heavy metal to folk to camp to progressive to the just plain weird. The unparelled songwriting genius of Lennon and McCartney is well on display here as is there obvious differences in style. Harrison also emerges on the White Album and showcases his best song ever "While My Guitar Gently Weeps". Some may point to "Sgt Pepper" as the Beatles crowning achievement, I point directly and emphatically to the White Album.

Peter Frampton is better than ever. This album is mesmerizing especially "Float" - a must have album. If you don't have it yet, get it.

5-0 out of 5 stars An Important Artistic Work For Frampton
Have listened to Peter Frampton's new instrumental album "Fingerprints" a few times now, and wanted to post a review.It's really good, but it's really different from his prior albums too.Being an instrumental album and having read the pre-release press I was expecting that, but was still surprised at the wide range of musical styles covered here.On first listen I wasn't sure it sounded like Frampton at all, on 2nd listen it sounded much more familiar, and by the third listen I could hear Frampton all over it.His fluid guitar leads & sound are unmistakable, but it's the shifting song styles he plays them over that make the album so diverse.This sounds like the kind of music he's probably always played when he was practicing, playing for his own pleasure, warming up during a soundcheck, or jamming on in the studio between takes for more "regular" sounding songs during previous album sessions.This is an important album for Frampton, and I think it establishes clearly just how accomplished a guitarist & musician he is.Most fans know this already, but this album shows just how much command over the guitar he really has, and how comfortably he can branch out into all sorts of playing styles to make the instrument do whatever he wants.More of a guitarist who also sings, rather than a singer who also plays guitar.Not all rock musicians could record such a diverse album as this.Each song demonstrates a completely different aspect of his playing ability, and puts him in the ranks of other jazz/rock/fusion instrumentalists.Another nice touch is that none of the songs play on for longer than they need to.On an instrumental album it would be easy to just play on forever, but all 14 songs here have very tight themes and arrangements, and keep the album moving.A few notes on the songs:
5-0 out of 5 stars His best - again
When I wrote a review for Frampton's last disc, Now, I said it was the best thing he's ever done and that he belongs in the pantheon of great guitarists.With Fingerprints he picks up right where he left off, sans lyrics.In an interview I saw he said that this is the record he's always wanted to make ("I've been living a lie for the last 40 years") and that comes through in his playing; you can hear how much he enjoys his work.In the end Fingerprints drives home the point I made in reviewing Now; Frampton is one of the best guitarists rock has ever produced. I won't go so far as to say he's the absolute best, but I will say there is none better.Fingerprints is a portrait how a guitar can sound in the hands of a gifted virtuoso. If you are interested in hearing another great guitarist then after you put Fingerprints in your shopping cart check out Koala Motel by Anne McCue. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars As Good as it Gets
Clearly one of the greatest albums you could select for turning the lights off, cranking up the stereo, and enjoying the mood. Pink Floyd was so good in the Animals/Dark Side/Wish You Were Here/Wall albums, it's hard to pick the best among them. Depends on the mood.
1-0 out of 5 stars I finally confronted my nightmare
I found one of the most depressing albums of all time, and it was under my nose. There's only one real saving grace off this album, and that was "Shine On You Crazy Diamond(Part One)" It was a rather dark, stark, and yet beautiful piece, but I can't say that for the second part of the song which you have to endure through 3 horrible songs just to get to. "Welcome To The Machine" is boring as well as depressing it seems like it's never ending like "Tuesday Afternoon" "Have A Cigar" is also long-winded, and depressing, "Wish You Were Here" it's not the greatest, but it's also not that bad either. I also realized that there was some conflict going on with the group, and Capitol Records after "Dark Side Of The Moon" wound up being so successful, and made the group move over to Columbia Records, and a perchance meeting with former frontman Syd Barrett during the recording of this album was also noted. He was only 29 when he saw them again, and it looked like he aged 35 years by then. Which is the same spirit I got when I heard this album all the way through on December 18, 1993. It was a boring Saturday night in Florida, and I had nothing to do with myself except to put my brother's Floyd cd collection onto cassette tapes. I don't wish to be there again.

5-0 out of 5 stars Still to this day my favorite David Gilmour/Roger Waters-era Pink Floyd record. And that's saying an awful lot....
This coming from a guy who also cites 'Meddle','Dark Side Of The Moon' and 'The Wall' as his other three all-time D.G./R.W -era Pink Floyd albums. That and the live disc on 'Ummagumma'..

Editorial Review

Even if you don't agree with Neil Young's politics, you can't help but be daunted by the intersection of his genius and ire on his second album in less than seven months. It is the very rare artist who is able to channel indignation and moral disgust in such a coherent and forceful way--without sacrificing any of the vivid imagery, passion, or the high level of musicality that we have come to expect from him over the past four decades. But that's not what elevates this album: it's his pure, naked, visceral reaction to the Bush administration's foreign policy, building on a canon of outrage that he began with 1970's "Ohio," penned in the wake of the Kent State student deaths. But here he goes one better, filling in the lines that he began to draw on 2003's Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars I kneel to Neil.
This is one Neil Young album that the majority of people will judge before they even hear it. Meaning, any anti-Bush, pro-USA, Neil fan will enjoy it. For the most part that's probably true. It is mostly track after track of ripping apart the Bush administration and war, yet also maintaining a sense of hope and love for the country. Lyrically that's what it is. Musically I find it's similar to his mid-90's album "Mirror Ball". It's rocking Neil for the most part, and appropriate for the topics. Not every song is a winner, but I really like the tracks "The Restless Consumer", "Let's Impeach The President", and "Lookin' For A Leader". Subtle? Not really, but I like it.

5-0 out of 5 stars No throwaway songs here
When I read that the album was hastily put together I expected it to be rough around the edges. Electic Neil always sounds that way to me anyway. Part of the charm. What I did't expect was how musical it would be nor the depth of the lyrics. Surely some of his best work. Pretty amazing for an aging hippie of 61. Makes you wonder how good he'll be when he's 81.

Few bands of the 1960s retained as much a sense of the roots of rock and roll as did Creedence Clearwater Revival. Their music is rife with country, rockabilly, and R&B influences, a combination that produced several hit singles--most of which are present on this collection. These include "I Heard It through the Grapevine," "Lodi," "Up Around the B ," "Who'll Stop the Rain," and of course "Bad Moon Rising." This is an excellent greatest-hits collection, and a perfect introduction to the music of a band that has been enduringly influential. Read more

Why should I write a review for a CD that has 20 songs by Creedence Clearwater Revival!! Seems like a waste of time to me. 5 Stars.

They're all here on this CD.Every one of the great hits that defined one of the most talented rock groups in history.It's really strange to hear what passes for great music today, when you listen to this.

Editorial Review

Proving yet again their willingness to dice 'n' slice their burgeoning legacy into new--if not exactly fresh--product, the Fab Four Minus One have released this single-disc compendium of their No. 1 hits. Though obviously superfluous to the faithful (who may also find themselves quibbling over the precise definition of "No. 1 hit" and the exclusion of seeming contenders like "Please Please Me" and "Strawberry Fields"), newly arrived visitors from the Pleiades star cluster and other neophytes will find it a concise and generous (nearly 80 minutes) single-disc introduction to the band's career-spanning, unparalleled dominance of pop music in the 1960s. But beyond being a mere trophy case of commercial success (and it won't be hard to find critics who'll argue that these singles aren't even the band's best work), it's also a Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars An apt title.
I understand why the Beatles are the top sellers in rock music as they suck. They only made about two decent songs in their "Hey Jude" a pretty song, and "Ballad Of John And Yoko". The sixties was a horrible decade of rock music. I would have to be said that only very few good songs came out in the sixties, which one of them is Neil Young's "Down By The River".

Editorial Review

This is the first attempt to consolidate all of Sir Elton's hit singles, from three labels, in one collection. It once would've required at least four CDs to own the best stuff here. Many think the legendary performer was at his best in the early to mid-'70s, and the incredible string of singles that ran from 1970's "Your Song" through 1977's "Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word" remains mighty impressive. But in retrospect, as they're presented here, '80s hits like "I'm Still Standing" and "Sad Songs" add much to an already amazing legacy. Three Disney tunes, the lush "The One," and two from Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars From what I can tell, Disc 1 should have been 2 discs.
I'm an old Elton John / Bernie Taupin fan. That time was Elton's most creative period, and where the most hits came out (both on AM and FM radio). Disc 1 has a lot of great hits, but has a lot missing (including entire albums). On a minor point, there is nothing from Empty Sky (this is OK - it wasn't that great of an album, but should have been represented by something). On a major point, nothing came from (the incredibly great) Tumbleweed Connection. That album had (at least) 4 great hits (Amoreena, My Father's Gun, Country Comfort, and Burn Down The Mission). With those 2 omissions, lets go through the rest of the John / Taupin library.
5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing!
I simply LOVE this album.Elton John is a phenomenal artist.His lyrical flow soothes my soul.This album is definitely my comfort music when I'm sad, and my fun music when I'm happy.I pop in my cd while I'm driving down the road and it feels as though I'm taking a stroll down memory lane.These songs fill my heart with wonderful memories and I find myself putting certain songs on repeat.I recommend this CD to anyone who wants to hear some good music.
5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Elton Collection available today.
There's no way you can reduce Elton John's career to one cd and do it justice. So we have this beautifully remastered collection of hits on two cds. The first cd is devoted exclusively to Elton John's Greatest Hits from the 1970s. This is all right, because many of Elton's long time fans will agree that this was his most creative and prolific period. You get Bennie and the Jets, Crocodile Rock, Honky Cat, Good bye Yellow Brick Road, Philadelphia Freedom, and much more.

Longtime listeners have seen it coming:it was only a matter of time before John Mayer dropped the pop star pretense and proved he could really bring it. Chalk it up to one too many Dave Matthews comparisons, or the cupcake-sweet residue stuck to his image after the success of "Your Body Is a Wonderland"--but something convinced Mayer it was time to take him game to the next level. With help from studio pros Steve Jordan and Pino Palladino, he succeeds on Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Johnny We Hardly Knew Ya
Holly cow! This guy has been doing a little wood sheddin'. I have Heavier Things and it occasionally makes its way into the CD player and then back to the shelf. Try! stays in the CD player. A very impressive piece of work. Great song selections that carry a little more import than some of Mayer's own pop-oriented writing. But it's really the guitar playing, backed by this incredible rhythm section, that stands out. Mayer set out to prove something to his audience on this disc, establishing himself as a musician to be taken seriously, and he pulls it off convincingly. When you play in a trio format there is nowhere to hide, and Mayer stands at the front of this band and rocks. This is the best CD I've heard in a long time. Its reassuring to know that with all the drivel you hear on the radio, someone still has the integrity to break through the [...] and put out an exceptional CD.

5-0 out of 5 stars What a concert album should be--a milestone for Mayer
. . .I am probably the newest passenger on the John Mayer Love Train here. The first song I ever heard was "Vultures" at 4:00pm the day I saw him in concert that night with Sheryl Crow in Indianapolis, three days before "Continuum" hit the market. I got to hear him sing it live that night.While waiting for Continuum to come out, I ordered "Try" solely to have "Vultures,""I Got a Woman," and "Good Love is on the Way" (I hope he'll release a studio version of this awesome rocker!) to tide me over, so to speak.But what made me a true believer once I got this thing in my hands was hearing "Out of My Mind."Close your eyes and you'll swear that Ray Charles is singing and Stevie Ray Vaughn is playing the guitar.But no--apparently this is John's composition, played and sung by John with--dare it I say it?--SOUL.And it's not even the peak of the concert.There's lots more to come.The encore section is 20 minutes long, including a raw rocking version of "Something's Missing."Yes, I have to ignore the sexist lyrics of "I Got A Woman" and just listen to that blues guitar wail, but after all, he didn't write that one.Mr. Charles did. There's a lot of variety here--a fun, funky cover of Hendrix' "Wait Until Tomorrow", "Daughters" (for those of us who can't get enough of "classic John"). The "green" song that follows "Out of My Mind" reminds me of the Beatles circa 1969."Vultures" rocks, of course--the only thing missing are the keyboard parts from the "Continuum" version.I love the way he ends this one--it fades out to him and this little funky rhythmic thing.
1-0 out of 5 stars I Ain't Impressed A'TALL
OK, John Mayer, whoop-whoop; I saw him on "Austin City Limits" awhile back, and I (AND my Wife, too!) thought it was Nelson Mandela's step-son, Dave Matthews.And now, he's gone and 86'd Jessica ("What...ME worry?") Simpson, too."Fifteen Munutes of Fame," Johnny...OK, all THAT aside: I don't know who Mayer is (ahem) "cozy" with, because, like Johnny Lang and the aforementioned Matthews, he HAS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO SAY.And, again: all THAT aside, how did this @#$% manage to get the Who's bass player and Keef's drummer to provide the thythm section for this mess?Save your money,or go buy Tony Joe White's newest CD. ...

This CD offers a great deal of incredible music by John Lennon during 1969 and the early 1970's when he fought our government in order for him and Yoko to live in the United States. The quality of the music is excellent and after you listen to this CD you want to run to watch the film!

5-0 out of 5 stars Greatest Album of all time.
I'm not sure if I like the new cover art, but this album will stand the test of time as being the greatest piece Rock n' Roll ever. I havn't heard this version but I'm sure that the audio is just fine for your average listener. The great audiophiles of the world can disect the sounds to death, but if you turn it up (on a decent stereo) I'm sure it sounds better than on vinyl. Who are these people with super hearing anyway?? Are they memebers of the canine family??

5-0 out of 5 stars Sounds great, to me
I don't understand what everyone's gripe is about the sound of this disc, I think it sounds really great. Anyway, "Dark Side Of The Moon" is a masterpiece by Pink Floyd, it really captures their brilliance. I would not hesitate to recommend this version to anyone looking for "Dark Side Of The Moon", it's as good, if not better than the original recording. I'm pleased with it, all of the songs are great, though I think "Money" and "Brain Damage" are my favorites. But, it's all great. Highly recommended.

5-0 out of 5 stars 5 stars for the music - 1 for the format
The "Dark Side of the Moon" is one of the greatest musical contributions of the twentieth century. This truth makes a 5.1 surround sound release long overdue. While looking for a surround sound home theater, I was conscious of getting an SACD compatible unit so that I could specifically listen to this disc. I shopped around at a few stereo stores. None of the salesmen that I spoke with had even heard of SACD. After seeing no units identified as SACD compatible, I purchased a system and hoped for the best. As it turns out, no luck. This release will not play surround sound music in a regular DVD based surround sound theater. While there is supposed to be a format war between SACD and DVD-Audio, it seems that DVD-Audio is winning and SACD is quickly joining the fate of Beta video cassettes. With hindsight, DVD-Audio would have been a superior choice of technology for this 1973 classic.The only way most of us will ever hear the "Dark Side of the Moon" in surround sound is by listening to the live version on the "Pulse" DVD. That written, there's little loss since this hybrid disc plays like a regular CD. I am also baffled by the audio technician wannabee reviewers. To my ears, this disc sounds exactly like the existing audio releases. I'm sure this information is buried someplace within the 298 reviews. I didn't care to read through 50 pages of reviews for a single disc purchase and you probably don't either. Thus I thought I'd pass this along for those especially interested in the surround sound aspect of this release. ... Read more
