This was considered a departure from his regular sound so if you do like it and decide to check out more Beck be prepared. I'm hoping that his new album Morning Phase gets a 5.1 mix at some point. It's being touted as a sequel of sorts to Sea Change in that the music is similar and most of the same musicians are back.
Agree completely. I never heard the Thriller SACD was it in surround? If so that should be a 5.1 blu ray and i think Headhunters was a 5.1 disc as well. I would like to hear a 5.1 mix of PJ's Ten but nothing else on that list really excites me that much.
They should all sound the same or just about the same, there shouldn't be a big drop off audio wise going from PCM to Dolby True. It may be a disc fault. When this disc first came out there were complaints about switching from one format to the other. Some disc players did it with no problem some had fits. As long as PCM and DTS play fine I wouldn't worry about it.
