Biography

It was 30 years ago that guitarists Susanna Hoffs and Vicki Peterson and drummer Debbi Peterson formed the Bangles in a Brentwood, California, garage. They did so based on two crucial elements: their common love for rock’s golden age (“Growing up loving the same music has always been the glue for the Bangles,” says Susanna), and the crystalline sound they quite naturally ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good 16 Oct 2002
By Robert S. Lewis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this because some SACD disks have multiple channels. This one does not. However. the sound difference is wonderful. I was actually surprised at how good it is. As for the Bangles, I personally consider them to be the most creative group of their time. Every song is a fresh sound. Musically sophisticated and constantly interesting.

4.0 out of 5 stars SACD music 13 Sep 2010
By HDmusic - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Well, I waited a while to get this and it went out of print so I had to pay a premium price to get it. I usually always go with, "when it's there, get it". I'm just not a huge fan of The Bangles although I do like some of their songs. After hearing this recording I realized how many of their songs I do like. Many reviews of this effort comment on how they failed to include some of their earlier stuff which seemed more raw "garage band". Still, there are a great mix of songs.

Now for the SACD part. For my ears and system, this appears to be a well mastered disc. Sound adjustments are few if any. Some reviews I've read were kinda negative. Some are very technical. There are many sound systems out there ranging from several hundred to several+ thousands of dollars. I'm sure the better the system the better it is to detect flaws. I currently have a moderatly priced Onkyo system that is a few years old. It does not take a $10,000 system to enjoy high definiton music. I find the sound to be clear, balanced which is important for stereo SACD's. So far I've been able to pick out bad sounding recordings.

I recommend this disc for all Bangles fans. High definition music fans that want to broaden their collection would be wise to get it on SACD.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not SACD Surround 7 Dec 2006

I love the Bangles music, however, I am very disappointed that this SACD is only a stereo release. Don't the Bangles deserve better?

5.0 out of 5 stars Some people are just clueless... 15 Aug 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The previous reviewer obviously doesn't know the difference between CD's and audio tapes, so I don't expect them to know the difference between redbook CD's and SACD's.
Anyways, this SACD version of this Bangles' album rules!!
