    Not sure If this should be here or Off Topic with the subject matter. You can listen to the whole album here

    Can't wait till it's released or to see him with CSNY

    My Wife happened to score some floor seats to the July 14 show in Winnipeg for $190 a pop. It's also her birthday so guess who get's to foot the bill?

    What the hell, It should be a good show?


    As well it will be a home coming for Neil and he brings CSN along for the ride

    I think that it's terrific. But some people hate it. It's agressive in it's use of all channels, with Neil's voice often coming from the back. It's one of the discs that never leaves you wondering if all of the speakers are working.

    Edit: I have the DVD-Audio disc, not an SACD.

    Sometimes too much is overkill!

    I wonder if many Hi-Fi enthusiasts said the same thing when Stereo was first introduced?

    Yes they did... even into the '70s I knew many Hi-Fi buffs that hated the artificial nature of stereo... and they were right. Early stereo was artificial.

    I feel the same way about current surround sound... I do not want to be aware of all of the speakers... I think surround done well would make you think only the front center speaker (mono?) was on, but the sound is huge and ambient... more like a live performance.

    Ron, it's more accurate to say "Takes away the enjoyment of the music for me." I'm pretty sure that's what you meant, but it does look like an absolute statement. Then you get guys like me saying, "No, it doesn't," when I really mean, "No, it doesn't for me."

    I don't want to be aware of all the speakers either, but I do want to be aware of all the sound, and I also want to be aware of the artist's changing vision of his or her art. It's the old being or becoming discussion, where some see art as fixed and complete while others see it as evolving and incomplete.

    I got the Performance Series 7.1 set up because it's not there, and I like to listen to and enjoy multichannel sound--both hokey and refined--because it is there.

    Right!
