Top five 5.1 Wish List for 2012 - Page 3

post #61 of 112
What I want is already coming out, NIN The Fragile in 5.1.

I would have liked Siamese Dream in 5.1, I would also love to see some of the early stuff from The Crystal Method (Vegas, Tweekend). But honestly, any new music in 5.1 would be great. From classic rock to alternative to electronica. I'm up for anything. I would love to see The Wall released in 5.1.
post #62 of 112
My top 5 would have to be (in no prioritised order):

The Wall
Led Zep II
Electric Ladyland
Back in Black
5150

Of course, I'd 2nd/3rd/4th/9th the following: Beatles - Abbey Road; Pink Floyd - Animals; Supertramp - Crime of the Century (or Even In the Quietest Moments); any early Alan Parson; Radiohead - OK Computer or In Rainbows.

So, here's a TOP 5 made up of others I've not seen listed elsewhere:

1. TALK TALK - The Colour Of Spring
2. FOREIGNER - Foreigner (first album, with Ian McDonald of King Crimson fame)
3. KATE BUSH - The Dreaming
4. ALICE COOPER - Love It To Death
5. MARILLION - Afraid of Sunlight, Clutching at Straws, and Marbles

If you can find them. They have long been out of print and command serious coin online today.

Are you sure Love it to Death was released on DVD-A? I'm aware of Billion Dollar Babies and Welcome to my Nightmare on DVD-A, and there was a stereo HDCD release of Love it to Death, but I hadn't heard of a DVD-A version.

edit: oops, my mistake. You were referring to Foreigner 4, and I thought you meant No. 4 on the list. As Gilda Radner's Emily Litella would say "never mind"

Led Zepplin 1 - 4 in 5.1 remastered by Steven Wilson
post #69 of 112
I would prefer that all of the following were released on SACD and BR.

KMFDM - Their entire discography would be fantastic in surround, assuming they do not use the horrendous remasters of their back catalog. Distortion due to shredding and straight up clipping along with excessive compression and limiting which affects all their recent releases as well. -Chris Shepard did many of the pre-2000 mixes and have excellent dynamics and SQ, would be great if he was contracted to do such a feat.

Enya - Her entire catalog would be phenomenal in 5.1 but they would have to improve the mixes for the more contemporary releases, assuming the masters are the same, once again, compressed and clipped versions currently available.

Dead Can Dance - Also their entire catalog but not the 'modern' remasters, far less dynamic, such a shame since the originals sound fantastic.

The Chemical Brothers - Hanna soundtrack offered in 5.1 would be a lot of fun. Especially if they let things breath a bit more in regards of dynamics and not use the awful CD as a reference. What is heard in the film would be good enough for me. Everything sounds shrill, flat, and lifeless due to limiting, compression, and clipping on the CD.

Leftfield - Leftism is really a great album with nice dynamics and excellent SQ.

The Orb - U.F.Orb and The Orb's Adventures Beyond The Ultraworld are both interesting Pink Floyd -esque electronic albums. Again not to use the loud and flat remaster versions as the source.

Star Wars - All the soundtracks but especially the originals.

Best Regards

is there any electonica or trance on hi-rez multichannel? or even dts 5.1?
post #71 of 112
Paul Van Dyk - Reflections had a very limited Multi-Channel SACD from Germany I believe.

Paul Van Dyk - Global DTS 5.1 DVD

Kraftwerk - Minimum-Maximum also had a M-CH SACD release, limited as well.

BT - Monster soundtrack DTS 5.1 DVD.

BT - This Binary Universe DTS 5.1 DVD.

The Crystal Method - Legion Of Boom, supposedly a DVD-A with DTS.

Those are the only ones I know of.

Best Regards

Indeed!

The first one should be Paint the Sky....
-- next she should give us Shepherd Moon :-)

What about Suzanne Vega, I should really like her 99.9f

And of course the landscape of Ane Brun --"It all starts with one"
(already on LP and CD)

Of course some real Norwegian Jazz --- like
"Espen Rud - Dobbeltdans "

Thats my five :-)

There was an Enya music video dvd in 5.1 surround that came out BTW.

It seemed as if there never was a definitive answer as to whether that was fake or a true remix. I know I wasn't bowled over by the mix. Do you have any info on that?
post #80 of 112
1- I've been dying for Close to the Edge in 5.1; I'd heard rumors it was slated for release (was once told by an insider it was coming, along with The Lamb lies Down on Broadway, which did of course show up), but then heard others say that the original multi-tracks of the album had been lost, so it will never happen- hope this is untrue. Tales would be awesome in surround, but that will never happen.
2- Physical Graffiti would be my 1st choice for a Zep 5.1
3- Meddle would be my 1st choice for PF, followed closely by Animals
4- Gabriel's Security- hope SW can get to do this
5- Jean-Luc Ponty's Imaginary Voyage (or Open Mind)

I'd be interested in many others mentioned as well. It's such a shame MC never caught on. Here's hoping blu-ray might be able to get it going, though I hate the outrageous cost of the boxes that are now coming out- even the sacd of WYWH costs more than $40. I'd love the WYWH Immersion set, but not at the prices they are going for.

BTW, re: Wakeman's 6 Wives- you are aware of the blu-ray of this, right? An awesome concert- great quality audio and video. Not a 5.1 remix of the album, but a real treat nonetheless.

Although it doesn't include the Flecktones, the Bela Fleck DVD-A Bluegrass Sessions: Tales from the Acoustic Planet can still be found, although you may pay a high price for it. Saw Bela Fleck and the Flecktones at a bluegrass festival just a couple of months ago.

This album is exactly what surround is supposed to be like.

Part bluegrass, part acoustic, all good.

every instrument is descrete, and tests my system to the max.

dont forget cosmic messenger
post #86 of 112
cosmic messenger would be great too, as well as individual choice and mystical adventures- hell, any JLP in surround would be great- but IV would be my 1st wish, followed closely by OM. Can you imagine eulogy to oscar romero in surround? I love the way the strings seem to waft thru me even in DPL II; the thought of the echoes coming from the surrounds and being engulfed in that synth violin goodness gives me wood... Unfortunately, given JLP's non-mainstream audience, I highly doubt we'll ever see anything of his in surround, but one can wish
post #87 of 112
I'd also like to add the Contain Us box set of 4 albums by the Devin Townsend Project to my 5.1 wish list. Got it recently and this stuff would be great in surround. Full orchestra and choir in places. Ranges from metal to pop to new age (really). Most interesting thing I've heard since Porcupine Tree!
post #88 of 112
1. Van Halen - Fair Warning
2. Pink Floyd - Animals
3. Jimi Hendrix - Are You Experienced
4. Pink Floyd - The Wall
5. Van Halen - 1984


Seeing how Rush has released Moving Pictures and Signals my Favorite Rush Albums I am a happy camper.. Altho Future Rush releases will be supported by me.. for that matter nearly any Hi Rez in 5.1 will be bought by me..
post #89 of 112
Having just listened to the first, self-titled album by Ambrosia, I would definitely love to hear it in a MCH discrete mix, in whatever format can handle it.
post #90 of 112
My wish is that someone savvy could open up a "sticky" in this forum area where we could post info on what's actually scheduled to be released in surround music, in various countries, so that there is one place to refer to...much like the 3D Blu Ray release sticky. Need some real releases to look forwards to!
