This is a classic Minds album in 5.1 surround DTS 96/24 sound. Jim Kerr never sounding so good, this is a really good DVD Audio disc, very clear mix and good use of 5.1 surround, and with the bonus of an extra track not listed by Amazon which is "In every Heaven", this disc also contains lyrics, and Dolby Digital 5.1. Buy this!!!!

NEW GOLD DREAM shimmers with New Wave experimentalism. The soundscape is wide and full of dreamy textures, above which JIM KERR's haunting vocals weave in and out like some spirit in the material world.

STANDOUT TRACKS (IN 5.1 SURROUND)
1. Someone, Somewhere in Summertime
4. Big Sleep
5. Somebody Up There Likes You
6. New Gold Dream (81-82-83-84)

Despite coming from a transitional period - the move towards a bigger sound and correspondingly bigger venues - this is SIMPLE MINDS at their glittering best. A perfect choice for the DVD-AUDIO format, which includes onscreen menus, lyrics and bonus features.

VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Format: DVD Audio
'New Gold Dream' marked a change for Simple Minds, following several albums that flirted with the avant-garde and nodded heavily to Krautrock and Prog ('Real to Real Cacophony','Empires & Dance','Sister Feelings Call','Sons & Fascination')things changed. Drummer Brian McGee exited - to be replaced by Skids-drummer Kenny Hyslop & Mel Gaynor- who would later join full-time and also play on Goldie's 'Timeless.' Ex-Gong member Steve Hillage was swapped for Peter Walsh (who has since worked with Scott Walker), who also arranges the tracks here. Simple Minds had been on a bit of a peak, and 'New Gold Dream' was their ultimate statement, taking the sound of previous records and combining them with the pop-influences of Abba & Moroder...
'New Gold Dream' is loaded with joys, the nine-tracks skirting around new-pop - though 'King is White & In the Crowd' is fairly prog-rock! 'Somebody Up There Likes You' predicts a lot of chillout music and the title-track was covered by dance-act Utah Saints and sampled by Felix for a UK hit-single. The band began to have hit-singles - 'Someone Somewhere in Summertime','Glittering Prize', 'Promised You a Miracle' - which sadly lead to the stadium-rock route the band pursued. Where peers like David Sylvian, Julian Cope, Mark Hollis & Soft Cell opted to pursue more avant-garde climes, Simple Minds went down the U2-path (though some songs on the following year's 'Sparkle in the Rain' would probably sound amazing if given the same type of production/arrangement here, e.g. 'East at Easter','Speed Your Love to Me','Book of Brilliant Things').
