What a cryin' shame that so many good songs sound so bad! Shame on those responsible for trashing the sound on this disc. It could have been sooooo gooood, because the songs are all winners. You'll recognise every last one of them. It just makes me mad to hear a CD like this. Good memories gone bad. Sounds like your listening to AM radio, not the future of high definition audio. I just want to cry.

I think Journey is a great band from the 70's to mid 80's. Perry's voice is something of a marvel. But stay away from this sacd. Buy the regular cd.

I am so angry at Sony for cheating us on this release of Journeys greatest hits.
Let me get this straight. Sony along with Philips invented dsd and sacd technology and just when they are ready to introduce the world to it they go back to the low rez pcm masters and do a dsd of them and not from the original master tapes.

So what do we have here in this collection?? well..essentially you have something that sounds a small bit better than a regular cd. It is just a tad more stable but with the same resolution.

Thankfully there are many classic rock sacd's to choose from that were done the right way and sound incredible.

This one is a flop.....thanks in no small part to Sony doing it up cheap at the expense of the customers.

I can only imagine what Journey COULD have sounded like if this was done right.

Performance:   Sonics:
This disc is very disappointing. The sound is thin, compressed sounding. There seems to have been no thought about sound quality when the producer made this SACD. Poorly mastered discs like this, and there are many, do not help the SACD format.
