I bought because this was an album I loved when I was about 10. Of course when I bought it back then it was probably $5 on vinyl. Spending $59 on it? I'm sure a plain CD would of been fine.

How many SACD's does the average user's have????

Beck's "Sea Change" is another title on MFSL UDCD that would give any SACD a run for it's money It's all in the mastering from the source material the master tech has been given. I own one of the wort rated SACD's ... more
