ok, not going to rate this album cos no word to describe heaven. if you're a big fan of bjork, please save your money to buy this dvd-audio, you never get disappointed. there are two sides of this dvd-a which they called it dvd-10. side A contains the dolby digital stereo and 5.1 sound tracks which can be playback by normal dvd player. side B is the superior "Advanced Resolution" stereo and 5.1 surround sound. anyway, the sticker on the dvd-a or booklet stated the advance resolution 5.1 surround sound is in 24 bits, 96khz(very good sound quality!!) but i found out that it has only 24 bits, 48khz(lower quality), what a lie!! yet the advance resolution stereo should at 24 bit, 192khz quality but also got lower quality at 24 bits, 48khz. just forget the specification if you didn't understand, all i wanna try to explain is this vespertine dvd-a doesn't meet the standard high quality with others!! i love this album very much but i got to tell you the truth.
there're still many surprises awaiting you cos some tracks have different music arrangement!! ---->>an echo a stain, heirloom and unison. you only can hear the difference in dolby digital and advance resolution 5.1 surround sound. no changes in stereo sound.
i have to say all the 5.1 surround sound were well-made. the menu is simple but efficient. buy it!!!!
note: US edition has only one side. other remains the same.
