David Bowie's Ziggy Stardust on SACD gets 10 for performance and 8 for sound
 
http://www.avrev.com/music/revs/davidbowie_ziggy.shtml

Ben Shyman reviews this ultra-classic on AVRev.com. The SACD camp was really trying with this big time release. Many consider this Bowie's best record ever. I am not going to argue but I might suggest its one of the best SACDs out there.

What do you think?

I wouldn't have given it an eight even, the sound is pretty lame, album is classic!

kennyt,Jerry,

You guys want to hear a superb sounding SACD, with great surround sound and what they call an enhanced cd, where you preview and listen to the artists play and talk about the recording on your PC, none other than the tribute to Jaco Pastorious, "Word of Mouth Revisited"
Great Telarc sound, superior band, Victor Bailey, Christian McBride, Marcus Miller, etc. and its also a hybrid. Anyone who liked Jaco, and likes jazz, will love everything about this SACD.

kennyt, I think it was you, but I did not check, you mentioned something about an Issac Hayes SACD? Which one of his LPS were you talking about? Because I would definitely be interested in picking it up.

Back on topic (ahem)...

The SACD could certainly be better but it doesn' harm the presentation of this classic as much as some say. I'm very GRATEFUL to have it! I want more but the timidity of the labels dictated that Tony Visconti's Young Americans 5.1 mix be relegated to a "DVD" as only a DD/DTS lossy offering.

Marketing for this is even worse as it is considered "Special Editioin with DVD" with no proper indication that the DVD is included as a home to house the 5.1mix. And people wonder why surround music formats have such a hard time.

I also own the stereo SACDs of Let's Dance and The Lodger that I'd love to replace with PROPER 5.1 mixes in either hi res format.
