And now for something different, no particular artist, but been listening this evening to the Atmos Music tracks on Tidal.
When DVD-A was first a thing I invested in it, and it was pretty cool for a bit, but a lot of the multi-channel releases were a bit gimmicky. The only disc I still have to this day is Linkin Park Reanimation (and actually I have no idea how I can actually play it today) which is IMO one of the best examples of the format.
So when I heard Tidal had added a bunch of tracks with Atmos surround, I was a bit meh.
But actually, most of it is quite subtle yet very effective. There's the odd track that sounds like I've just switched on one of the up-mixers, but most of it is very good - adds "atmosphere", and height/scale to great effect, without being a gimmick.
I'm fortunate enough to have an AV system which does a cracking job of imaging with 2ch stuff, but this really adds something to that.
This entire album is just absolutely incredible.
New Unleash the Archers..
Bit of Vintersea..
and maybe a little more..
Also Tatiana in a beanie...
Because orchestral versions of many things are definitely worth it.
Symphonic punk, seems like quite the oxymoron.
Spotify thought I'd like Steven Wilson, nice to listen to something newer than my usual fare
Were it not for the subtitles (Which, of course, don't exist in audio format..), I'd have no idea what was going on but;
Love this band.
To be honest, who cares what's going on? It's just like Heilung. Every now and then these kinda bands just create a mixture of awe and happiness in your ear canal.
Mainly because I heard some amazing solo work from them recently, this.
Love me some good hair metal. \m/
Listened to the whole album a lot since it was released recently.
