5.0 out of 5 stars Really great picture and sound demo, 16 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When I get the money I'll buy the lot. The whole serious.

If someone wants to see what the remastered series looks and sounds like, this is a low cost try.

The remastering is superb, more in picture than in sound, but whoa what a crisp picture.

5.0 out of 5 stars Two songs are perfect., 16 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Protection (Audio CD)
The two tracks Everything But The Girl are involved in, tracks #1 and #6, are more than worth the purchase of this album. Just a couple of those rare 'perfect' songs.

The rest of this cd is pretty good, some nice rhythmic beats mad mixes there. As soon as the "rappers" resurface on tracks this cd turns ridiculous. You protest out loud to no one in the room, "How can this terrible song be on the same cd as those few perfect gems?"

I have no idea what the last track was trying to accomplish, some live performance of 'Come on baby light my fire'' or similar. It's gut wrenching awful.

Highly recommend this cd, some good things in here.

I also have it on SACD back at our other home, the album is great.

Superb sound quality, reference mix and production.

The guitar sounds just fantastic and his vocals are of course terrific.

Each song is not a perfect exercise in song writing, but the tracks are charming and a bit raw, which is at most times refreshing. Once in a while you say to yourself, "Dang that was close, there's some real potential here. Just missed "it" though."

4.0 out of 5 stars Love the songs, the mixes could have been better., 16 Oct. 2013

This review is from: Acoustic Soul (Audio CD)
The songs on this album are really terrific, as you know. I like every track equally, I believe. We listen to this cd often and I never grow tired of it.

The mix, however, I believe was a missed opportunity. One track will really be polished and clean, then the next track track will be bright and harsh.

A remixed release on SACD and/or 192/24 hi-res download I'd easily pay USD$99 for.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's got the one great song, doesn't it., 16 Oct. 2013

This review is from: Tracy Chapman (Audio CD)
The production and mix of this cd is superb, top quality.

Fast Car is just great, such a perfectly created song. The rest of the tracks on this cd left me underwhelmed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really great, 16 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Was surprised how much I like the 7th.

My one opinion, this is the finest 5th Symphony performance I own and I own I think six (6) now, all on SACD.

This SACD sound superb, the surround scheme is surprising enveloping and clean, which was unexpected I usually opt for a solid two-channel presentation.

Highest recommendation.

5.0 out of 5 stars So so great., 16 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The blue ray picture and sound are everything I expected and more.

But what a great movie. The enhanced resolution in color and crispness on a big screen in surround really does present this film in a greatest glory.

It's fantastic. And I'm a straight 43 year old dude. (:

1.0 out of 5 stars You're all crazy, this album is horrible., 16 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Blue Lines (Audio CD)
What is wrong with you people?

The beats and mix are cool but the song writing, the lyrics, the raps and the quality of female singing are bad bad bad.

The two or three tracks on their next cd "Protection" are superb perfection, obviously due to Everything But The Girl guest singer and whatever writer friends she brought into the project.

Massive Attack left alone are rubbish. Sorry.

5.0 out of 5 stars Some good stuff here, 27 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I like this.

I own about 100 soundtracks on cd now, all ripped to Apple Lossless.

This one here, The Hobbit, is clean and a good standout.

The singing tracks are not my personal favorites, FYI.

1.0 out of 5 stars Didn't care for the songs, 27 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Just being honest I listened to this once and didn't get it.

Huge fan, truly.

In this album Sting seems to have 'found God' and now wants to witness to others, which is all good in the hood, but this objective does seem to have come at the price of song writing. The music and lyrics soon become predictable and not terribly interesting from a musicality point of view.

Sorry mate.
