Peter Gabriel - Passion: Music from the film artist: Peter Gabriel function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); album: Passion: The Music From the Film "The Last Temptation of Christ" format: SACD label: Real World Records release year: 2003 performance: 9 sound 8 reviewed by: Dan MacIntosh When critics talk about Peter Gabriel as a creative force and musical genius, many refer back to his experimental, art-rock days with genesis or his pop success on albums like So. I find this album Passion, the music for the Martin Scorsese film “The Last Temptation of Christ,” to be yet another level of refinement in a stellar career from a master songwriter and, in this case, an excellent composer.

Peter Gabriel - Birdy Soundtrack artist: Peter Gabriel function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); album: Birdy Soundtrack format: Stereo SACD label: Geffen release year: 2003 performance: 9 sound 8.5 reviewed by: Jerry Del Colliano 1985’s “Birdy” was Peter Gabriel’s first swipe at a Hollywood motion picture soundtrack at a time in his career when his popularity was surging, thanks to his creative move from somewhat edgy progressive rock towards more pop-friendly tunes. The music for “Birdy” is a collection of songs that include interpretations of past Gabriel songs, as well as new melodies and compositions that are inspired by the mood of the film.

Isaac Hayes - Hot Buttered Soul artist: Isaac Hayes function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); album: Hot Buttered Soul format: Stereo Hybrid SACD label: Mobile Fidelity Sound Labs release year: 2003 performance: 9.5 sound 8 reviewed by: Jerry Del Colliano Long before Isaac Hayes was known by Gen-X and Gen-Y as “Chef” on South Park, he was one of the world’s most soulful solo recording artists. His pipes extended to places that only the likes of Barry White could reach, while his tunes and song styling made him more all-round entertainer than mere vocalist. As a songwriter having who grew up in Memphis, he had seen early success penning such big hits as “Hold On!, I’m Comin’ ” and “Soul Man.”

Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon artist: Pink Floyd function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); album: Dark Side Of The Moon format: SACD - Hybrid label: EMI Capitol release year: 2003 performance: 10 sound 9 reviewed by: Jerry Del Colliano Without question, Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon is the most anticipated release in either of the competing high-resolution surround sound formats. Ironically, it comes as an SACD from EMI UK. EMI US has been a public supporter of DVD-Audio in the States. Fans of high-resolution audio, surround sound music or, more importantly, this masterpiece of an album, Dark Side of the Moon, really don’t care. They just want to hear Dark Side of the Moon sound better than ever before.

Keb' Mo' - Just Like You artist: Keb’ Mo’ function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); album: Just Like You format: SACD surround, Stereo label: Sony Music 2003 release year: 2003 performance: 8 sound 9 reviewed by: Jerry Del Colliano There is no question that both high-resolution audio formats clearly focus on appealing to Baby Boomers as their target audience. While there are some great examples of new mixes to groovy old albums (Dark Side of the Moon on SACD and Yes’ Fragile on DVD-Audio, for example), Keb’ Mo’s Just Like You offers the SACD-empowered audience the chance to hear the powers of Sony DSD audio technology on a more modern recording with music that has wonderful bluesy appeal that speaks to their most coveted listeners.
