    This is an ambitious mix. There’s stuff happening in every corner and quite a lot of movement. Everything seems nicely locked in position, except quite often I find the drums difficult to place. I think that might be because they tried to mix them around all four speakers? At times, that works, but other times it makes it a bit of a mess.

    I found I had to turn down my rear speakers quite a bit. A couple of the tracks have sounds which move around the room, so that helped to confirm that I had the speakers at the correct level.

    A great decode, nice separation of the channels. Good sound, too, e.g. there is some deep fuzz guitar which sounds meaty, and some tambourines which tinkle nicely.

    Like joerand I enjoyed this. Good songs, a nice rocking sound, and the quad mix is great with some excellent choices for the rear channels in some of the early tracks. Great sound from the LP too, I noticed no hint that this was from vinyl.

    Enjoyed this one a lot. A lot of variety in the songs, and a few quad specifics that are nice highlights. The first song was a big hit in the USA, but the others I had not heard before.
