3.0 out of 5 stars A little disappointed February 28, 2004
Format:DVD Audio|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed the regular CD version of Sacred Love (SL) so much that I ordered the DVD-A version as soon as it came out. I already had the DVD-A version of Brand New Day, which sounded awesome, so I was excited to get SL. I hate to say it, but I am disappointed in the DVD-A version of this album. The first several tracks sound flat (for lack of a better word). I tried playing the CD version and the DVD-A versions back to back and I think the CD sounds better for the first 3 tracks. Strangely, from about track 4 on the sound improves some. I wonder if I just got a back copy. I would like to hear other opinions about this DVD-A.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK on DVD-A, better on SACD March 26, 2004
By Nick O
Format:DVD Audio
I agree with David, the previous reviewer: the sound quality of this DVD-A is disappointing ("Flat"). Last year's SACD sounds better (and to think I bought this DVD-A because I was slightly dissappointed with the sound quality of the SACD to begin with). DVD-A is an awesome format, but do skip this title. Buy the SACD instead. It may not have the three music videos, but it does have two bonus tracks that are not included on the DVD-A.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sting - Sacred Love [DVD-A] November 8, 2009
Format:DVD Audio
From what I recall, Sacred Love garnered a lot of mixed reviews and being that it's a Sting album, that's not too surprising as it seems many either love or loathe his music. However, I always felt the album was underrated and generally very good. A nice bonus of having the surround sound mix is the extra 2-3 minutes of "funky" piano playing at the end of Never Coming Home that is not available on the CD or high-resolution stereo layer. Excellent! In any case, there are plenty of reviews on the music...so I'm moving on to the important items...

First, the fidelity is good, but not great. Sting's vocals, when you can hear them well, sound good, but not quite "in-your-room realistic". I do appreciate the fact that, despite being a pop album, I can turn the volume up on this album to a fairly high level. Nevertheless, so much of the album is computer-generated, including the drums, that everything feels excessively digital and processed. Furthermore, I was disappointed in the bass, which oftentimes felt very anemic and when it was present felt unnatural.

The surround mix is a mixed-bag and fairly inconsistent. Generally, I'd call the surround mix a "big sound mix" with mild to moderate discrete elements. In other words, it's not a truly discrete mix, rather a front-to-back bleeding mix with occasional use of the rears for discrete sound effects. Even the background vocals often come out of the fronts and Sting's vocals often emanate from all channels instead of just the front or even center channel. I don't typically find these types of mixes very effective. The room is full of sound, but the sound is homogeneous. On a few tracks, (e.g., Inside, This War) the vocals are buried and hard to follow, whereas on others they are better balanced and understood.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but... March 15, 2004

not one of Sting's best albums. The CD's standout song is the duet between he and Mary J. Blige. Their Grammy win was much deserved.
