So just got finished listening to the new release from Beck. The whole time I was listening to it I couldn't help but think surround sound format was underway, but searching forums, I'm not seeing anything definitive. This is similar to Sea Change, which most would agree has one of the best surround sound mixes out there. This new album sounds as though Elliot Schneider was involved again? This would be a must buy. The new album is terrific and back to the Sea Change sound, which is not a bad thing at all. here's to crossing fingers for a Blu format release!
