very good 5.1 mix
on January 10, 2016
after reading some crackpot's review stating that the 5.1 mix is just ambient and not worth hearing, i was apprehensive about this release. i don't really care about out-takes and all the hoopla, i like well remixed 5.1 albums. i didn't want to pay top dollar for 34 minutes of an ambient surround mix ...
fear not folks. if you read that same review and have held off getting this because of it, ignore the troll. this has a very nice mix with instrumentation used well across all channels.
it is redundant to review the album, it is an absolute classic. don't start with that "astral weeks album is so much better" argument. astral weeks was a great album, but the moondance album is van morrison's signature album for short form songwriting and vocals.
if you say you like van morrison you should love this album. if you like 5.1 you won't be disappointed.
