Mastered Direct-to-DSD, By Ryan K. Smith at Sterling Sound, FROM THE ORIGINAL ANALOG MASTER TAPES......and with no noise reduction, if the pictures of the master tapes box's are to be believed!

There are also 8 'bonus' tracks appended.

This title is the most commercially successful album that The Church ever issued and made them somewhat successful internationally.

It has been a surprise for me to listen to the album as, what sounds to be, a flat transfer from actual analogue tapes. Historically, on CD the presentation tended to sound a bit cartoony. This SACD issue sounds mid-fi, organic and analogue. It is now very real sounding and has a much more natural soundstage.

A title well worth getting on SACD and, if you are an Australian, pretty much mandatory!
