The big box is just in, so I quickly reached for the blu-ray to give the new stereo mix of the album a spin. It is radical and expansive. You can clearly define each member of the double trio so distinctly, especially between Bruford and Mastelotto. The separation is fantastic and if ever an album was designed to be heard in surround then surely this is it. I may have to now look into the possibility of upgrading to surround, simply based on this album. Jakko has done a splendid job and really taken risks by how different the mix is. But for me it is a triumph.
First impressions are that this could be the best box yet, in terms of content, design and presentation.
