5.0 out of 5 stars Oasis on SACD, 24 Jan 2008
This review is from: Morning Glory (Audio CD)
This is one of the most unusual surround mixes I have listened to.It's not so much a 5.1 mix as it is a surround experience.

If you like Oasis and own a SACD player this gives you pounds for your pence.Maybe pounds should have a capital "P".The music of Oasis is a very thick heavy sound and one would not think of it being a good candidate for surround treatment,what with ALL those guitars played REALLY LOUD and stacked on top of each other there would not seem to be much room to spread things out,BUT they do!

This SACD is a great example(along with Meatloaf's "Bat Out Of Hell" and Deep Purple's "Machine Head"),of how heavy rock and electric guitars can sound SO SO GOOD!It's as good as having the Gallagher Brothers set up at your place to lay down a few tracks for their next album(if only).You can almost smell the intensity as Liam sneers through the opening track "Hello",and "Champagne Supernova" is like a brand new song.It literally fills the room.

Honestly,you feel like your in the recording studio with them!It's no small wonder that the 5.1 mix is as good as it is.Longtime Dire Straits producer Neil Dorfsman was the knob twiddler.He's no slouch at recording/producing a tune or two.I never imagined Oasis in surround sounding so good!

Stick it in your player,turn it up and I hope you have understanding/deaf neighbours.****ing Great!
