This Deadwing flies!
on 9 August 2014
Another masterpiece from Steven Wilson's Porcupine Tree - Why aren't this band MASSIVE?. Perhaps not as immediately accessable as some of their other work, so if Steven Wilson and/or Porcupine tree are new names to you, then I'd recommend that you try the simply superb 'Lightbuld Sun' as a starting place, or possibly Steven Wilson's stunningly good solo abum 'Grace For Drowning'.Although starting here wouldn'tbe that bad an idea.
If you haven'got a copy of Deadwing yet and are considering getting one, then this version is very definitely the one to go for.; because as with most other DVD audio disc I've got this album sounds so much better in 5.1 surround than it does in stereo. (And I've only got a conventional Blu-Ray player and so have only ever listened to either the Dobly or the DTS sound tracks , if as is claimed 'proper' DVD Audio is that much better it must be amazing.)
The mian thiing is that when surround sound discs as mixed properly, and if Steven Wilson is involved it will be, it' simply a case of 'more is better - much better.' The bonus here is that the HQCD really does sound better than the conventional cd. On a back to back listen everything was just that little bit sharper and clearer.
