I wanted to post on this thread although I live in the United States and have the DD and DTS versions of these disks. I posted my impressions of the first 2 disks I bought above. Recently I purchased Speak and Spell
which I really like (although the lyrics aren't as, how shall we say ,"Hetro" enough for me to feel comfortable walking around the house singing
). I didn't realize it was one of their first releases because of the techno-synthesizer feel to it and the clarity of the sound. It's a fun one to listen to.
On the Songs of Faith and Devotion
disk however, the 2 songs I really like from other sources sound way
to bass intensive compared to anything else I own. Both "I feel you" and "Walking in my shoes," really
takes some tweeking to get to sound right. Even then it's not the sonic experience I was expecting from this disk. Is anyone else having this problem?
On a side note I found Touring the Angel
in practically the same packaging and in the same section as the other DD/DTS audio disks in Bestbuy. In fact, I thought I was buying an audio disk until I got home and read the fine print. Btw, it was a good concert and a close 2nd to "One Night in Paris" out of the 4 Depeche Mode concert DVDs I have.
