Performance:   Sonics:
This is my favorite Dire Straits albums and one of my favorite rock albums of all time, so I'd say the performance is self-recommending. The question is are the sonics on this SACD worth the hefty price. To me, in a word, yes. This version is much better than the RBCD and in pretty much every way. I especially enjoy the extra spaciousness, and the textural details in the vocals and guitars. But it doesn't really have the presence and dynamic punch of the best sounding SACDs that I have, e.g. Dead Can Dance: Into the Labyrinth.

So in short, this is certainly the way to listen to Making Movies on disc. But falls a little short of being the ultimate in demonstration quality sound.

Performance:   Sonics:
If you want to hear the band at home, just buy this CD. Emotions performers come to life right in your room.
