How does he do it? How does Steven Wilson continue to create original, envelope-pushing, mind-blowing, mind-expanding music for the surround sound arena? After numerous spins, I can unequivocally say that the 96/24 LPCM Blu-ray mix of The Raven That Refused to Sing (and Other Stories) (5 stars; kscope) has wiped the surround slate clean and set the benchmark anew. (Sure, you can select the DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 option if you wish, but 96/24 is the way to go.) --Sound + Vision
