2.0 out of 5 stars MISSED OPPORTUNITY, 11 April 2006
This review is from: Collected [CD + Dual Disc] (Audio CD)
I love the music and the vids, and they have packed a hell of a lot into this package at a great price. So why the 2 stars????
This cd comes with a dual-disc and I am really dissappointed that in 2006 with this new and exciting format, thay they haven't gone the whole way and had the music remixed in 5.1 surround. Even more surprising considering 4 YEARS AGO Tricky brought out his dvd "a ruff guide" mixed in surround, and it sounds fantastic. Practically every film that comes out on dvd has 5.1 surround sound, why? Because the film industry understands how exciting the sounds are when spread arround the room. I don't understand why the music industry is so slow on taking up the chance to make great music, like Massive Attack or Basement Jaxx(for that matter), sound fantastic.
Now on to a technical problem with the dual-disc, its weight!
An ordinary cd weighs about 15-16g
All my other dual-discs weigh about 19.4 g
This dual_disc weighs 20.4g
The result is that because of its extra gram of weight my sony dvd/cd/sacd player more often than not is not able to read the disc as it slips on the spinner and doesn't go fast enough to be read. I've resorted to using a bit of blu tack to give the disc a little more traction. I'm not really keen on having to do this.
If not for those two gripes, I'd have given these discs a full on 5 stars
