So I've listened a few times to the new Oranges and Lemons 5.1 - like the others it's pretty fantastic. It's not a drastic change for the most part from the original, but the songs that I haven't paid as much attention to in the past are now sounding great - President Kill, Cynical Days, and Miniature Sun in particular! Steven Wilson has done another great job. The goodies on the BluRay are great too, if you want it.
Peggs: just to be clear the S.Wilson new stereo mix comes as a CD on its own, and then the BluRay has all the extras - instrumentals, demos, videos.
Two big toes up from me.
How do you think the unthinkable? You run it right into an ithberg.
I have purchased all of the surround sound volumes so far and have no complaints. I particularly like all of the odds and ends mixed in, some of which I've heard as Fuzzy Warble demos, but it is nice to hear completed versions of the songs.
Gentlemen, you can't fight in here--this is the war room.
I have only recently finished getting all them. I asked for D&W for the family Christmas gift three years in a row and the jerks never chose it from my list- So that and the Dukes were the last bought. But I haven't listened to three of the Blu-ray mixes, because my subwoofer went bad over a year ago and I have yet to replace it... why try to listen to it if you can't get the full effect? Stereo mixes are good (except that I think the first "polarity corrected" remix is the beat Skylarking mix).
The thing that bothers me is that while it's great to have the extras, it's so damn annoying that they're only on the blu-ray, not an easily playable and transferable disc.
