Cam, do you refer to BMG's The Complex? I have that one too. Great surround demo material to be certain, but IMO a bit of a mixed bag as far as the tracks go. You have to enjoy BMG's approach/style for repeated listening. That said, I really like the tracks with Dave Matthews and Tracy Bonham the most.

Honestly the only time that I've ever liked DM.

I think that I mentioned it in the other SACD thread, but you might enjoy Porcupine Tree (on DVDA) Zocco.

I do like Porcupine Tree and have it on standard CD. I'll have to check out the DVDA. Now, I do have the lastest Opeth album in 5.1 and it's awesome however more brutal.

My bad, dude. I just got my mom to check it out, and I have "Audio", which is an audio CD. The sound and separation is really good. There are certain songs that have a drumbeat that starts at the center channel, and then quickly move to the next speaker, making it sound like it's traveling right around you in a full circle. It's one disc that I really get a kick out of cracking the system up when it's completely dark. I find when I do this, even though I know where the speakers are located, I can't see them and it enhances the separation of each speaker.

It's unfortunate that you don't like Dave Matthews, he's one of my favorite artists. As far as material goes, have you heard his solo stuff? Or is that what you referring to? I would assume it's the band, as he only has one solo album.

I didn't know Dave was on "The Complex". Thanks for that bit of info.; I'm going to seek it out and give it a listen.

Yes, DMB and/or solo, just not my thing. Interchangeable with Jack Johnson... not my cup of tea. Not sure why, just don't connect.

Per your description of Audio, you should really like The Complex. It's a fun listening experience. Tons of bass too. Good times.

OK. Now I understand. No, not about The xx. About the "disappointment" with the new KOL cd. It was my first. I didn't understand the hype. Just listened to "Only by the Night" for the first time. Boy, what a great collection of tracks. No wonder the new one was a let down to some.

3rd listen to "The Orb," featuring Dave Gilmore. It's sounding more interesting all the time, though a bit slow getting me from each "here to there."

And I said I really liked the new Posies "Blood/Candy." I can't leave home w/o it. It's in my car, then when I'm working on site, it's on my boombox, then in the system in my shop, and on my main system. It's getting a lot of mileage on it. It's one of the most satisfying pop records of the year. Every track. The writing is so solid and sophisticated. The harmonies get scary close to the most ethereal of the Beach Boys. The arrangements let each song open up wider than they've ever allowed. The instrumentation employed adds even more flavors to the stew.

And, of course it's IMO!

That's it, I'm offended. I'm getting you banned from the forums.

Aw, c'mon Ken. You know I'm capable of offending way more than this. So, can my exile be for something REALLY bad (hilarious, I hope, as well)? That way, I'd feel that it was, like, totally worth it.

Sorry, Ken. Didn't see Mark's name next to the post.
In which case, I will assist you in any way that you need to accomplish your goal.
