  Review by 24-96 Mastering January 11, 2005

This is one utterly mediocre disc. Not judging the performance, the surround mixing is tasteless. I thought that at this point, we were past the "drums in the front, delayed gated reverb in the back"-phase of many early surround-experiments. The instruments sound disjointed.

  Review by Bill Tubes January 10, 2005

This release on 3 discs (the third only 30 minutes long) is an out and out disappointment.
