Performance:   Sonics:  
This week winter ended here! Spring sunny Day! Time to listen something exciting!
Just receive this wonderful SACD yesterday, sadly it already SOLD OUT and according Mr.Michael Dreyer it will have no second edition!! at least for now I think.

Iam looking a copy at a resonable price since 2008, only now I found a used copy at a affordable cost(+14 euros of shipping from Germany as usual!) at an 3th partie Amazon.DE seller (TanjasGameShandel).
And believe me it worth the time and expense! I sorry for you guys, as it already OofP and you do not like pay higher prices than the regular stock price, so you will not listen this gem!
It is a very dramatic performance, the choral is very ethereal, there is a climate of suspence, mystery and tension in all the works... I really sorry you will not pay more for this rare SACD.

Time is 60:20, The Rock 14:15, Dead Island 25:13, Prometheus 20:50, catalogue number is CD21035, BarCode is 4260014870358, it was recorded in 2006, there is a DSD logo,
seems the recording is DSD, the booklet do not inform about it, anyway the recording is very good, it even have a MC sound mix as you like. So time to listen something exciting again! PLAY...
