This is an excellent SHM-SACD of one of the great albums of all time. No need to review the content as this is a legendary album and anyone who would buy, or consider buying, the SHM-SACD of this album is certainly familiar with it. The sound quality is excellent: crisp, clean and detailed. It's so detailed that you can hear Rod licking his lips and taking a breath before starting the vocals on "That's All Right" least you can in headphones. The acoustic guitars are lush and beautiful, the bottom is nice and fat and the drums sound very real. This disc is absolutely the definitive version of this album. The packaging is also top-notch. To my knowledge it's the first SHM-SACD to come in a box with a mini-lp jacket inside.

To echo the previous reviewer (cooltype937) and to go one step beyond.........You have NEVER heard Every Picture Tells A Story until you've "experienced" the beauty and solidity of Universal's SHM~SACD remaster.

A few months ago, I purchased a two~fer EU RBCD remaster of both EPTAS and Gasoline Alley. Even on my Meridian SooLoos, it sounded pinched and lackluster (both remasters).

The SHM~SACD is full bodied with added separation, bass and the drums sound spectacular. The stringed instruments are way up front and in your face.

I have NO idea if the SHM~SACD compound has any thing to do with the sonics, but to my ears, a total close to the original analogue master tapes as one is likely to get!
