Customer Review

on 24 January 2008
This is one of the most unusual surround mixes I own/have listened to. It's not so much a 5.1 mix as it is a surround experience.

If you like Oasis and own a SACD player this disc gives you pounds for your pence. Maybe pounds should have a capital "P". The music of Oasis is a very thick, heavy sound and one would not think of it being a good candidate for surround treatment, what with ALL those guitars played REALLY LOUD and stacked on top of each other there would not seem to be much room to spread things out, BUT...they do. This SACD is a great example (along with Meatloaf's "Bat Out Of Hell" and Deep Purple's "Machine Head") of how heavy rock and electric guitars can sound SO SO GOOD. It's a similar sound experience as it would be having the Gallagher Brothers set up at your place to lay down a few tracks for their next album (if only). You can almost smell the intensity as Liam sneers through the opening track "Hello" and "Champagne Supernova" is like a brand new song. It literally fills the room. Honestly, you feel like your in the recording studio with the band. It's no small wonder that the 5.1 mix is as good as it is. Longtime Dire Straits producer Neil Dorfsman was the knob twiddler. He's no slouch at recording/producing a tune or two. I never imagined Oasis in surround sounding this good and am suitably impressed. Stick it in your player, turn it up and I hope you have very understanding or deaf neighbours. It's ****ing great.
