Sting - Brand New Day artist: Sting album: Brand New Day format: 5.1 CD label: DTS Entertainment release year: 2000 performance: 7 sound 9 reviewed by: Jerry Del Colliano When I first reviewed Sting’s ‘Brand New Day’ last fall, I was unimpressed with the lyrical content. The recording and production were up to Sting’s exceedingly high standards, but the record’s mood was clearly down, focusing on love lost and, with the exception of the last track, "Brand New Day," it showed very little optimism.

The Police - Every Breath You Take The Police DTS 5.1, Every Breath You Take, Image Entertainment | Performance 7 | Sound 7 | This album is a must-buy for the DTS-equipped Police aficionado. Although a glance at the track list would indicate that this is the same album as the two-channel ‘Every Breath You Take The Singles,’ it is quite different. The combination of the takes utilized, as well as the mastering, gives the listener the feeling of being inside a small lounge-type club with the band.

Diana Krall - Love Scenes artist: Diana Krall   album: Love Scenes format: 5.1 CD label: DTS Entertainment release year: 1997 performance: 9 sound 9 reviewed by: Richard Elen Wow. One of the kind things that has done to enhance my reviewing pleasure is to give me a modern (or relatively so) album to listen to among the quad reissues each month. Last month, it was the ‘Titanic’ soundtrack. This month, it’s a remarkable collection of love songs – or rather, songs about love of different kinds and from different angles, chosen and sung by Diana Krall. It’s a fascinating and involving collection.

James Horner - artist: Music from the Motion Picture Titanic album: Composed by James Horner format: 5.1 CD label: DTS Entertainment release year: 2000 performance: 8 sound 7 reviewed by: Richard Elen This recently-released album is in many ways a good example of the quality that a modern surround recording can offer - even though the majority of the surround in this case actually consists of ambience and reverberation, and some of the actual instrumental mix is hardly even in stereo! The added depth and feeling of envelopment provided by the surround system underline the fact that virtually anything in surround is better than virtually anything in stereo. That's true even (or perhaps particularly) if you have nothing flying round the room, or instruments contrived to pop up behind you. There is room in the repertoire for all kinds of artistic expression when it comes to a surround mix, and there are thankfully few, if any, rules about what should work and what should not.

Reba McEntire - If You See Him DTS Entertainment performance 8 sound 8 released 1998 In these days of DVD-Video, DVD-Audio and SACD, does the DTS CD still have a place? The answer is a definite "yes." The format has been around for a good few years now, but all it needs for replay is a CD player with a digital output (most CD players have these) and a receiver or preamp with a DTS decoder (also common equipment these days). Nothing very special is required for excellent results. I only wish that DTS CDs were packaged in conventional CD jewel cases, so that buyers don’t think they are DVD-Audio discs and then feel shortchanged later.
