Finally, a Mofi sacd that sounds great! This remaster is a big improvment in all sound areas compared to the old cd. This album has not been remastered by the regular record company, so this is a most welcome reissue. The sound now has a lot more life, air, punch and clarity. And the music is just great! Strong buy! Sound rating is based on the improvment over the old cd. This will never be a "hifi" sounding disc, but the sound is good.

Los Lobos - By The Light Of The Moon (SACD)

"By the light of the moon" was the fifth album by the mighty Los Lobos and is another fantastic one! David Hidalgo and Cesar Rosas are another crazy combo who seem to feed off each other and continuously write and record great songs.
Of course their most famous music watermark is La Bamba (which is not on this album!) but the best part of this band is the kind of tunes like what you will hear on this album. Los Lobos mix American rock with some latin 'esque bits, funk and even countryish elements. This album is R&B all the way !

"By the light of the moon" was produced by T- Burnett who also adds some vocals on the album.

This MOFI SACD was carefully mastered by Shawn Britton who brings out all the rich and intriquite details. I have honestly never heard the Los Lobos sound so good! There is a nice balance overall with excellent instrument seperation and a nice rich warm sound. The vocals are just perfectly sitting in the mix and the guitars sound fantastic on this disc.
