5.0 out of 5 stars Sound quality
If you own or used to own this classic album and you have a blu ray player you'll love the sound quality of this now so buy it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Sloppy!
The disc purports to be a direct transfer of the master tape. However, the EQ is mildly different between the PCM track and the DolbyHD track, which is subtly brighter but has less ambient detail.

Forget the DTS-HD track completely, so little care has been taken that the RH channel is on both sides (yes it comes out of the LH speaker too) and the LH channel is...

The disc purports to be a direct transfer of the master tape. However, the EQ is mildly different between the PCM track and the DolbyHD track, which is subtly brighter but has less ambient detail.

Forget the DTS-HD track completely, so little care has been taken that the RH channel is on both sides (yes it comes out of the LH speaker too) and the LH channel is completely missing. Unbelievable that they could be so sloppy.

Overall, on monitor grade speakers and amplification the PCM track is closest to my pristine original album when played on a high quality turntable.

If you want the vinyl sound from a digital source then the PCM track is a good representation of the original LP. I'm not convinced it's significantly better than the re-mastered CD though which, while not replicating the original LP, sounds very good.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Album, Blu Ray has one flaw, 28 Jan 2014

One of the best records ever made. I am not a religious person at all but this record is so beautiful and so perfect you can't help but to fall for it. Many themes are not about God but dealing with a world at war. "Because only love can conquer hate" I mean how can you beat a line like that. This is Motowns greatest moment. Even though they laughed at him when they first heard it. It's also Motowns top selling record.
I have owned more then a few versions of this including the SACD and the Blu Ray Audio wins (just an FYI there are a couple of clicks at the beginning of the Blu Ray. Those are on every version I have so it's on the master.
The reason this is getting a four star reveiw is because the DTS-HD track has some audio issues. The horns almost disappear at the begging of the song. However the Dolby Tru-HD is at the same bit rate (96/24) as the DTS -HD so you are not really losing anything. Again this a perfect Record!!
