Hang On To Yourself!,
This review is from: The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars (Audio CD)
From the slow beat of "Five Years" to the lamentable closing, "Rock & Roll Suicide", "Ziggy Stardust" has held its own in Rock history. Add the element of SACD (surround sound) and the album takes on a new life. From the acoustical clapping of "Soul Love" to the hard driving guitars of "Suffragette City", this new mix finally and clearly separates all the instruments without isolating them. It is a full band experience as if you were in the studio. The acoustic guitars sound so crisp and clean and Mick Ronson's guitar work sounds like new. I can't over-emphasize how great this version sounds, especially after marveling over "Dark Side Of The Moon" and "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road". Hang on to yourself!

Apart from the intro of Five Years and a few other bits, there is not alot sounds coming out of different speakers and as for the subwoffer,it might as well be off.Yes it is crisper etc but it lacks the feel and warmth of the original mix.It should sound like Dire Straits "Brothers In Arms" or Elton John sacds. But it's still a fantastic album.
