This Album scores 5 stars on Sound Quality on the 5.1 mix, only because the recording is so good, and only for that reason. I will forgive the few minor issues, which would have normally dropped the rating slightly.
The first 4 tracks are excellent, track 4 Temptation is great, tracks 5/6/7/8 drop off slightly in the middle, then picking up again with an awesome track 9, from there the tracks just level off to the end.
If there were enough half decent SACD/DVDa (5.1) discs around I could be more critical, but there are not, so the only issue I have with this (and its pretty serious for the music engineers) is that on quite a few of the tracks they have place some of the instruments BEHIND THE LISTENER. This almost suggests that the Tracks were not recorded as a 5.1 mix. Maybe their cheap way of selling multichannel is to split a recording up into front and rear channels, ............not quite the spirit !
Its really wierd at first when you have Krall singing at you from the front, and a guitar playing right behind your head ! Takes some getting use to.
However not forgiving this at all, I would still say that the SACD was worth the money for tracks 4 and 9 ALONE!!! Everything else is a bonus.. If you have some serious equipment, turn the sound up on these two, and they will take you away !
Love Scenes in DVDa is a SUPERB recording (and recorded correctly), and the Live in Paris DVD is just amazing considering you get both the concert and a DTS 5.1 track which is extrememly good. These two are not to be missed !
Sorry, I have given up on normal audio CDs now ! Just do not compare !
