3.0 out of 5 stars In the Flesh 30 April 2003
Format:Audio CD
I was very eager to receive my SACD copy of In the Flesh and received it at the same time as the SACD version of DSOTM. I made the mistake by listening to DSOTM first (which is fantastic) and afterwards to ITF. The sound of In the Flesh is truly disappointing if compared to the job they did on DSOTM. Compared to the DVD, there is no real improvement and the sound via the "B" (or rear) channels on a 5.1 amplifier is very dissapointing. If compared to the 2-track stereo version, there is no big improvement, unlike the gigantic leap in sound improvement on DSOTM. Nevertheless, it is great to listen to and have in my collection.

3.0 out of 5 stars In The Flesh SACD. 17 Sep 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Excellent album, but having the surround doesn't add anything to things really. If you have the straight CD version then it's not worth bothering; if you are a Floyd fan without this album but want something for your SACD player, buy it, but stick to the stereo mix. And buy the surround version of Dark Side of the Moon first!!

3.0 out of 5 stars SURROUND BALANCE ON "IN THE FLESH" DVD 13 Mar 2008
Format:Audio CD
My comments are actually re. the "In The Flesh" DVD because, like Tinnus 13 and his comments re. the surround balance etc. on the SACD CD, I am very dissapointed with the DTS and Dolby Surround mixes on the DVD. I found the PCM Stereo mix very satisfying and very similar in quality to that on the standard CD. What's the problem I wonder as Roger Waters/Pink Floyd excel usually with new technology. DSOTM in SACD Surround is a triumph, why can't they get the surround mixes and audio quality right on "In The Flesh" ?

4.0 out of 5 stars This is why you buy SACDs 27 Dec 2001
By Oz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This live, 2 CD set has a multi-channel layer, but I don't have a multi-channel SACD player, so this is a review of the Super Audio stereo version. First, my bias: I think Pink Floyd, post-Roger Waters, has put out some great sounding stuff, and I have never liked Roger Waters' solo material. Having said that, this is an excellent album. The songs consist of a handful of Waters' solo stuff (the album slows down a bit during these songs), but for the most part, it's some of the best of classic Pink Floyd. The cast is typical Floyd with a large ensemble, including Jon Carin who has toured with Floyd before, and a trio of female backup singers. They all sound fantastic, especially the backing vocals and some beautiful sax in "Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun" (yep, he really opened up the 'way-back' machine). Unfortunately, David Gilmour's guitar is sorely missed, although they come pretty close in a few songs. His vocals, however, are well-replaced, especially in "Dogs" and "Comfortably Numb." The DSD recording blew me away. I wish there was some other Floyd on SACD to compare it with, but this is truly an audiophile recording. There is a very small audible hiss, typical of a live recording, but I only heard it during the few moments of silence and did not find it intrusive at all. If you're a Pink Floyd fan, this is a must have for your Super Audio CD collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Buy the DVD, also 20 Oct 2004
By Jim K - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This "live" performance almost sounds "too perfect" to be live. A great bunch of musicians and a great sounding cd going through the popular Pink Floyd catelog of hit songs and covering the most popular solo material as well. Almost a bit too "commercialized" similar to the Pink Floyd "Echoes" greatest hits release, but overall a great sounding cd/dvd. I would recommend this but would also recommend buying the Pink Floyd and Roger Water albums individually and listening to them from start to finish to get the concept of each recording. Hard to do when these songs are divided up on "greatest hits" and/or a live "greatest hits" recording.

5.0 out of 5 stars Do yourself a favor and by the DVD instead 29 Jun 2003
By P. Federico - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The show is amazing, sound and video quality are great. You've got to see it live on a big screen, I listen to the PCM track on all 5 speakers instead of the DD track.

1.0 out of 5 stars the worst sounding sacd in the world-ever 20 Jan 2006
By Mr. Andrew Bramah - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
i saw waters on this tour and i am a huge floyd fan but the sound on this sacd is awful!!!!!!!! it is so bad i actually unplugged all my cables and re-plugged them and it still sounded the same.the rear channels just sound fuzzy and ecoey,the bass is non-existent and the centre channel is not used on every track.i find it difficult to believe that the sound can be this bad having already got the normal cd which is infinitely better,especially when played through the concert/live processor on my amp. the music is great,though a bit clinical at times. could and should have been so much better.

3.0 out of 5 stars great music, great performance, bad milti-channle mix 26 April 2003
By Joe S - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I am a big Pink Floyd fan and I have most of their albums. As far as post Waters Floyd goes, it's ok. I think it's pretty good but it's nothing like Floyd in their Prime, but I still enjoy Pulse.
I had been waiting a while for a surround sound Pink Floyd CD and I bought an SACD player just so I could listen to the new AMAZING Dark Side Of The Moon. While I was on this kick, I decided to buy Roger Waters' live solo album In The Flesh. I was a little worried at first, because this is Roger Waters and not PINK FLOYD, even though Roger was part of Floyd in a BIG way. But I decided to give it a chance. Also, there are a good amount of Floyd songs on here that I hadn't heard performed live by the original Pink Floyd, so I thought this would be the next best thing.
And it IS. I thought the old Floyd stuff was done very well. I don't really care for the Waters solo stuff too much but the Floyd stuff is great. The only problem with this SACD is the surround sound mix. About 80% of the audio comes from the left and right speakers, leaving the rear speakers for audience cheering, sound effecs, and once in a while, an instrument or two. As far as I could tell, the center speaker was not used at all, and the sub woofer was used at a minimum. No instruments came from the woofer, just a slight rumble of effects. THIS MIX LACKS BASS! When i listen to it, it's like the audio is coming from 4 transistor radios, and not an 80 watt surround sound system. The strangest thing of all is that this mix was done by James Guthrie, who mixed the Dark Side Of The Moon SACD. DSOTM sounds AMAZING. It is probably the best sounding SACD/DVD-Audio that I have ever heard. In The Flesh sounds like .... I can harldy believe that the same man mixed both albums.
In my opinion, (and I'm sure there will be many who disagree) an SACD isn't worth your time (to locate, they are not popular yet) or money unless they are multichannel. I paid $$$ for this when I could have gotten the regular CD version for $$$, would be able to play it in ANY cd player, AND would be able to adjust eq. The CD version would cost less money AND sound better.
