Which Peter Gabriel SACD is best?
My vote goes to Security however it is tough to pick.
I think the fact that a BUNCH of Gabriel Records have been released as a group is EXACTLY what both formats needed. The lack of surround sound, video supplmentals etc... made the deal fail unfortuantely.
But in the end - when I want to listen to Gabriel - I look to my SACDs and they sound great. For surround, i cheat and use Meridian's "tri-field" mode which is really really good. Andrew Robinson was raving about how good the Yamaha surround sound modes are on much cheaper receivers and AR owns meridian electronics himself...
Re: Which Peter Gabriel SACD is best?
Firstly, this is not all of the PG SACD catalog releases.
NONE OF THE ABOVE! Where is UP? That is the ONLY one with a 5.1 mix. That is the best one IMHO.
PG SACD marketing mistakes:
1. Not providing 5.1 mixes excluding Up which was a new album
2. Not even making US releases SACD hybrids (UK imports are)
I'll buy them all (again) when they are properly done in 5.1 SACD or DVD-A
