Brilliant Album

This is a brilliantly produced album executed with German precision. Cape Town After Midnight takes me to places I have never been. This is a masterpiece, a true collector's item.

Rating and Review of Twisted Sister - Best of Atlantic Years

Reviewed by on

For a die hard fan of this band or 80's Rock, this is GREAT! None of the versions were tampered with and therefore sounds as good as it did back then. The bonus track was a real surprise. They made the song their own. All in all, a good rounded noisy rock album with the best of a great band.

Fairly good album, which somehow gets repetitive in beat and sound. Overall not too bad. The most played songs on the radio are the best on the album.

Magnificent

Reviewed by on

It's hard to imagine that this is a fairly new rock band (having only formed in 2012), and yet their guitar riffs take me back to a simpler time - camping trips, road trips and listening to 1970 and 80s rock on the road. I can't recommend this album more. I'd say this one and Wolfmother's 2005 album deserve to be in any Rock fans collection.

Nice compilation of album cuts and hits

Reviewed by on

If you love original classic Country Music, this one is definately for you. Conway Twitty was a one-of-a-kind singer whose ability to wrench emotion ouf of simple lyrics places him among the best Country legends of all-time. He was more than just a country crooner, his renditions were intensely soulful which accounts for his 40 Billboard number one hits during his career. This compilation contains original recordings which already makes it pure Country gold (I hate re-recordings). A few of Conway's lesser available hits such as his excellent version of Don Gibson's I can't stop loving you (a number one hit), I'm not through loving you yet (a number three hit) and The Image of me (a number 5 hit) showcase Conway at his commercial best. The true gems are the more difficult to find album cuts that touches your heart repeatedly. His versions of Life turned her that way, Blue eyes crying in the rain and Dim Lights, Thick Smoke and Loud Loud Music are beautiful. His own compositions such as Just like a stranger and Dim lonely places remind us of how well he understood the Country lyrical tradition. My personal favourites are his version of George Jones' Tender years and his wonderful duet with Sam Moore, Rainy night in Georgia. George's 1961 hit, Tender years, remains one of George's most beautiful Country recordings. Conway keeps true to George's style and his sometimes croaking and mostly tender and emotive voice compliments the heartbreaking lyrics beautifully. Have you ever stood in the dark at a window, somewhere in South Africa with a glass of red wine in your hand and watched the rain pouring down? It feels as if you are transported to better times when life seemed not to be so complicated. I have experienced it, and in the background Conway Twitty and Sam Moore's version of Brook Benton and Tony Joe White's Rainy night in Georgia was playing in the CD-player. I wasn't in Georgia but it didn't matter because as they sing, "Lord, I believe it's raining all over the world", everything felt absolutely perfect and peaceful. It almost felt as if they were there with me in person, old souls sharing a moment of bliss. Their two totally different voices come together for a very special soulful duet that I will always count among my favourite duets. There are a few very good Conway Twitty Country collections (the original MCA releases) and reissues available (the Poker two albums on one CD), some very good, others not as good (because of re-recordings and not great remastering), but this one is good. I wish they would release Conway's early and mid 1970's albums on CD. There are some excellent songs and great performances of Conway that need to be heard again. Conway's Rock 'n Roll recordings are well represented on CD, they are wonderful, check them out.

Only if you like Mahler 2 slow...

Reviewed by on

This BIS recording is a let down in sound quality. It simply fails to exploit the benefits that a SACD has to offer.

From a sound engineer perspective I fail to understand why the left speaker is slightly louder than the right speaker ? Technically it might be correct but it simply does not sound correct in a domestic environment.

Sonically the recording lacks the immediacy of a closer miked recording. The tempo is deathly slow and lacks the explosive dynamics one expects with a resurrection. The much older Mahler 2 Solti recording is much more enjoyable.

Sadly this is the first and last Osmo Vanska recording I will buy.
