    Even the most ardent Hackett fan (as I am) will admit this is one of his more challenging albums, but I always had a soft spot for (most of) it – there’s so many layers of sound going on and the Brazilian drums are immensely good. I never knew that this was “mixed ambisonically”, so leapt on this as soon as I (re)discovered this blog, and it sounds as good in surround as I hoped it would – everything sounds pin-sharp and although my set-up isn’t A1 perfect it’s a greatly improved listening experience over the standard CD release. Thx.

    A mixed bag for me. I enjoyed some tracks (great percussion and guitars) but found others a bit uninteresting. A bit more going on with the surround than the G&S release and the front soundstage at least is working. I can’t comment on the entire surround effect as I have no room to get the rears in phase etc as previously discussed.
