5.0 out of 5 stars A Welcomed Benefit For 5.1 Surroud Sound Freaks..., 24 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Benefit (Collector's Edition) (Audio CD)
Very much one of my big fave albums of Jethro Tull and one that had a much better original recording and production than Aqualung which followed, and strangely enough I always felt as if Aqualung always sounded as if it came before Benefit, and the material on Benefit was more of a way forward more so than what we got on the Aqualung album even thou I love both albums of coarse and everything they did in the 70's which was by far the bands best material.

This one I deffo feel is a must for 5.1 version even though I do feel Steve Wilson as done a superb job on the new mix. Personally I think the amount of bonus material on here is way over the top, and far too much of the same thing, and for me I doubt very much if CD 2 will get much benefit at all for my ears.

Why on earth bother with mono mixes I mean come on are we now expected to live with the dodo's. The fact that the 1st CD has got quite an amount of bonus material on it I think having a 2nd one was far too much, and even though I love the cracking songs that never made it on his studio albums and were mainly singles, I would of felt piling these perhaps on a collectors edition of say the compilation album Living In the Past would of been far more fitting.

Still gets 5 stars from me though and it's a lovely 5.1 mix done here by Wilson and he as utilised all 6 channels very well indeed, and done a superb job.
