This is the DVD-Audio version of the Black Album but no-one writing a review about it seems to realize this. They appear to be too distracted by the love/hate war surrounding the "sellout album". This however is not the burning question but rather; how does it sound in 5.1? Anybody out there realize that this is something new and able to comment on it? I would much appreciate it.
Thanks, Tim

I am waiting for this DVD -Audio in few weeks and will respond to you shortly after that.
Well, I finally got it. Unfortunately, I am not impressed - to much noisy, not clear sound, no satisfaction at all. Better save money for cd. Sad but true.

The album sounds awesome in 5.1, if you have the correct 5.1 set up and a good subwoofer, this album kicks, wait untill you hear Enter Sandman through 5 speakers, when it kicks in or Of Wolf and Man, the guitars sound alot heavier then the cd. An added bonus is a clip form the Classic Albums dvd for the Black album

Are you sure you selected Dolby 5.1? Check the manual in your receiver, and make sure that it's set right. As long as your speaker placement is correct and you have selected the stereo version of this album; the CD only puts out 44.1/16 resolution. DVD-Audio is almost always 192/24 in stereo. If you're listening in surround; the center channel should be at 0 degrees, the left and right at 30 degrees apiece, and the rears at 90 or 120 degrees, depending on whether you have 5.1, 6.1, or 7.1. With the exception of ICP's "Shangri-La" every DVD-Audio I've ever encountered blows CD quality by at least double. I know it's been four years but try again; "Peace Sells..." is another great metal surround mix; actually the greatest.

Looking back it seems like most artists made one DVD-Audio or SACD (a few did both) with either their favorite album or; most likely; their biggest. As far as rock Elton John and Dylan are the only two I can think of that pretty much put out EVERYTHING (both on SACD except "..Yellow Brick Road which is on both formats).
Anyway, The Back One was our first DVD-Audio-my wife sat next to the right rear speaker and flipped out when he whispered "never, never land". The 2 best DVD-Audio surround mixes lately to me are "Peace Sells..." (The vocals on the "Conjuring"...evil) and "Fragile" by "Yes". Oh and "Brain Salad Surgery" by ELO.

>""Brain Salad Surgery" by ELO."

I think you mean ELP.

Metallica is selling this DVD-Audio on their website for $18.99.
