Review by Vladimir October 8, 2004
Performance:   Sonics:
The musical CHESS, written by former ABBA members and music geniuses Benny Andersson and Björn Ulveus. There's not much to say about the performance, if you like musicals I'm sure you will like this one. All songs are in swedish, and as far as I know there's no english version available, not in sacd format anyway.

The sound quality is very high. I think the experience is based on the voices of some of swedens top singers, not least Tommy Körberg and Helen Sjöholm. Sacd really makes their voices sound truly natural and realistic, and this is what makes this sacd worth paying 359sek (~39euro) for, like I did. I might allso mention that this is a double disc album.
I have only listened to the multichannel version. I like the multichannel mix but it's far from spectacular, the rear channels are used for ambience only, nothing wrong with that but I still think one could excpect a little more from a multichannel mix.
