5.0 out of 5 stars Nice, but no cigar!, 22 Oct. 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: The Colour of Spring: Remastered (Audio CD)
This is not a review of the music itself, since its merits are well documented. 5 stars, and a truly excellent album.
This is a hybrid SACD, containing a normal CD layer and the high-fidelity SACD layer. It'll replace your old CD version just fine. If you've got the right equipment, it sounds glorious in SACD, as it should: more acoustic than a CD, instruments are more separate, and the bass / treble are clearer.
I've bought this album 4 times already! Vinyl, CD, remastered CD and now SACD.
However, this probably won't be the last version. This is NOT SURROUND. Having invested in surround gear, I've been waiting for this album (along with Spirit of Eden), and I was very disappointed that a surround mix is not here. Such a shame (excuse the pun).
This album would be *bliss* in surround, one of the most worthy albums ever. I'm assuming that the band and EMI are still not talking, hence making a new mix would be tricky (and should always be done with the band's involvement). I hope that EMI realise what they've got here, and that it's not just laziness.
Anyway, should a surround mix be done one day, I'll be buying it a 5th time. I just can't stop myself!

you and me both ! i bought this on vinyl the day of release and still have it,but i hope your dream as now come true with the dvd contained within the new vinyl edition.
i bought laughing stock on dvd /vinyl and by god its awesome.
still love the earlier hits like dum dum girl and such a shame though.
marks voice even on these more pop hits is just so emotional i find my self nearly in tears on songs like renee.its pure pop !
but then we move to the final 2/3 albums,well 4 albums if you include "missing pieces" and "mark hollis" to the mix.
when will MH or talk talk realise that we love them so much and reform to make more of this timeless music ?
