I've had a chance to play this completely through several times now and I'm happy to say I'm very pleased with the overall sound and mix. The vocals are very clear and present in the mix with the exception of the hit song "Don't Answer Me" which to me the vocals sound a little distant. This could very well be the intention of the artist on this track and by no means sound bad. There is also a little of this on Ammonia Avenue as well but doesn't really distract from the song, IMO.
The overall surround mix I find is active and makes a good use of the surrounds without sounding gimicky. The 5.1 mix really sounds good IMO and adds alot from the stereo mix. The bass on the mix is good without sounding heavy or overdone. I find the whole album very pleasing and will be playing it for some time to come. Hopefully others will enjoy this as much as I am and look forward to hearing some of our members reviews.
