I wish I could describe the affect that Hands Cannot Erase has on me. I listened to the 5.1 BR and Immediately after watched the bonus material....... I have also watched all 3 parts of Steven Wilson discussing the project on Youtube.

It has just sucked me in.....................

I have not other way to describe it, in typed words.

Just bought:

America - Homecoming AF SACD with 5.1 mix

I preordered this SACD from importcds with a release date listed as 4/21. The odd part is that I got an email from importcds that the SACD shipped yesterday. Very odd, but this is importcds .

Haven't heard Hand yet, but listened to Raven a few nights ago and I much preferred it to Grace. Curious to hear Hand now since Raven and Grace were very different from each other.

Where are you getting the Little Feat album from? Is it Hirez and/or multichannel?

Cheers

Just listened to Best Of Bread from AF and my preference is for the quad mix over the stereo, the opposite of The Guess Who AF SACD. Head to head I prefer the Bread disc, but then no one asked me to compare them

What is it about the two titles' quad and stereo mixes that give you those preferences?
