No surprises really about the multi-channel track, which is actually an auto-processed "remastering" or, understand, a fake remix. A 5.1 "spatialisation only effect" was just applied :( I have to admit that Universal didn't claim on the SACD sleeve package that any 5.1 or 4.0 re-mix was done though, but only just the DSD operation. I think Universal France was seeking a new way to sell music in 2004 by making lowcost re-editions for them, but finally low-added value SACDs.

The music in itself is really great, with very strong lyrics. One of my favorite Bernard's album.

If you're a brave and hardcore SACD fan who absolutely want to find this SACD -I think I bought the last amazon had-, I just want to tell it's a waste... Go buy the regular CD, you'll fell the real album atmosphere.
