What a shame!

I feel a bit down to give a bad review for an SACD when what we want is to have more and more titles available, but this one deserves it.

I owned in the past the CD of this SACD version and as far as I can remember the CD sounded better than this.

Of course the songs are worth it but the sound quality is really unbearable.

Do yourself a favor and don't spend your money on this one.

Performance:   Sonics:
I have to concur with AUDIOPRO's review regarding this, in that the audio quality of this particular SACD is absolutely abysmal.

First of all, please note that this SACD is only STEREO as opposed to 5.1-Channel SURROUND SOUND; which, by itself would not necessarily be that big a deal if not for the other issues.

The audio mix is quite frankly awful and whoever is responsible should be fired immediately; specficially, the BASS is disproportionately low and the MID-RANGE too high. It is as if the audio has been passed through an stereo graphic equalizer wherein a monkey has been allowed to play around with the knobs and buttons.

Further to this, the DYNAMIC RANGE is pitiful and there is COMPRESSION in abundance, which leads me to question what source material was used for pressing this SA-CD.

My advice is most certainly to not waste your money on buying this.

It really is that bad!

This has all their hits plus more, and is well recorded for rock. The only question is whether you like this all girl rock group. I like it.
