This review is from: Genesis 1976 - 1982 [Hybrid SACD + DVD] (Audio CD)
If there is only one reason to blow your cash on SA-CD equipment, this is it. The feeling of S P A C E and CLARITY is utterly mind blowing.
There is no need to give a blow by blow account of each album `cos if you`re reading this you`re probably a Genesis fan anyway (plus I haven`t listened to all of `em yet!)
DON`T expect surround sound "wizz bang" guitar or keyboard from rear left to front right or any of that sort of foolery. These albums have been remixed with great taste and restraint. The rear channels just add to the whole feeling of space. Each song can now breathe, something they just couldn`t do on Genesis albums before now, as there just wasn`t "room" for the complex arrangements to shine. Each instrument can now clearly be heard (a boon for all you tribute bands!)
To wrap up, if you have a DVD or SA-CD player and 5.1 surround, and you`re a Genesis fan, you would be plain crazy not to invest in these brilliant albums, either as the box set or individually.
