    Does anyone know if the 5.1 mix is any good?
    Also, how’s the mastering?

      Hi Neil – the SDE comes with a download code for an an Android APP which is supposed to have an amazing “11.1” virtual surround!

    Neil – According to the reviews on the US Amazon site – no. They say the whole thing is another victim in the ‘Loudness War’. The only thing in there I want personally is the 5.1 mix and that has a few differing reviews. Some comments say the vocals aren’t coming through the center channel on some tracks and that it’s weird. I’m really fighting hard not to click on ‘buy’ but I’m determined not to buy it!

    buy it. at this price its def a good “keepers piece” and sounds just fine. I paid £48 on Amazon sometime ago but under £40 quid…… brings it into bargain territory for anyone with an even more than passing interest in the band. Next……BADMOTORFINGER please!!!!

    I found the extra material (book, 3 CDs worth of B-sides, live tracks and demos) to be well worth it. (And unlike so many of these super deluxe packages, it still includes the lyrics!) I have not listened to the surround or the app yet, so I can’t comment on those.

    Reviews of the sound quality of the remaster have been rather mixed (Amazon is just one source), some people have liked it (despite lesser dynamic range) and others have not. I found it to be a wash, personally, but most importantly, it doesn’t fatigue me to listen to it at all.

    Reviews of the 5.1 on the Blu-ray seem to be mostly positive, with a few naysayers here and there. (Lyrics are there too, apparently.) I have not found a positive review of the app anywhere, though – sounds like it might be a waste of time.
