Great sounding old classic
on October 19, 2014
I've owned this recording on vinyl, CD and now Blu Ray.
Its probably overall my favorite Stones record, neck and neck with Ya Ya's and Sticky Fingers.
The sound of the Blu Ray is really good, with more details coming through, especially drums. I think in general that good new maters of rock music really benefits the drums for some reason? It's kind of a murky record in general, but I think the Blu Ray opens it up a bit. By the way, for those of you who follow this, the master has a Dynamic Range of 11 which is very good.
On the CD, you can hear some distortion made by the guitars, and that tends to muddy the mix.
On the Blu Ray the guitar distortion is more musical, because there's a more space and detail. You can more readily hear the difference in Richards and Taylor's parts and the tone of the guitars.
With that being said, I am not sure you will hear a huge difference between the CD and Blu Ray unless you have good headphones or a really top notch system.
As a big fan of the music, I think it was worth the investment.
