    Default Best SDA recordings ?

    I'm loving my SDA 1-C's! What recordings do you all feel
    have the best SDA effect or sound best on SDA's?
    Thanks, Mike

    That was 6 months ago. Are you telling me you've heard nothing new that sounds great on your SDA's the past 6 months! I'm always looking for new
    SDA tracks.

    Just about any telac CD would sound great. I like my sony SACD 2 channel Sampler. Willie Nelson sounds like he is in my living room.

    Russ and others,
    Thanks for the suggestions. I haven't tried Nirvana yet on the
    SDA's. Nevermind should be great. I haven't heard Tool yet.
    How would you describe their music?
    Thanks, Mike

    Russ,
    I found this review of Lateralus at allmusic.com:
    After an exhaustive five-year litigation battle between the band and their label management, Tool offer up the latest chapter in their musical self-discovery in Lateralus. Make no mistake, this is a prog rock record, reminiscent back to the times of King Crimson and Meddle-era Pink Floyd, with a hint of Rush mutated with Tool's signature sonic assault on the ears. Lateralus demands close listening from the first piece onward, as it becomes quickly apparent that this is not going to be an album one can listen to and accept at face value. Complex rhythm changes, haunting vocals, and an onslaught of changes in dynamics make this an album other so-called metal groups could learn from. While some compositions seem out of place, others fit together seamlessly, such as the 23-minute song cycle serving as the climax and resolution of the album. However, the album's most disturbing moment arrives at the end, with dissonant electronic noises placed randomly with a drum solo over a phone call to a talk show discussing the secrets behind Area 51, once again serving as a symbolic gesture from the band encouraging people not to take things at face value and to think for themselves. Overall, a solid, well-produced album from a band that never fails to deliver with each release.

    I love King Crimson and Floyd so this cd sounds great. I recommend 'In the court of the Crimson King' by King Crimson
    to everyone also. It's great. Thanks to F1nut for recommending it
    to me.

    Mike,

    I could not have summarized it better. Phuz (Aaron) turned me on to it, he was kind enough to give me a sealed copy as a gift at the Texas Polk Gathering.

    I've always been a Tool fan to a degree, but this cd really takes it to a different level in my opinion.

    Enjoy!

    Cheers,
    Rooster

    Russ,
    Hsve you heard all 3 Tool cd's? I've read some great reviews on them but haven't
    bought their cd's yet. I'm buying Lateralus. I've also read some great
    things about Undertow and their other
    cd. What can you say about their other
    cd's? I thought they were more heavy
    metal which I'm not a big fan of, but
    allmusic.com makes them sound like
    a prog rock band. I love prog rock.
    Mike

    I wouldn't classify them as 'hard rock', but definatley on the 'heavy' or 'dark' side if rock. Progressive? I have never used that term myself.

    If you have a decent email account, or a broadband connection, I can email you some MP3s or give you access to my FTP site for a 'try before you buy'.

    Russ,
    Unfortunately I can't get DSL where I
    live so I'm on a dialup. I'm going to buy at least one of Tools cd's and give them a try. I'm a big Pink Floyd fan. Do you think Lateralus would be the best one to buy first?

    Default Tool Time

    I would highly recommend Undertow and Aenima, both are great recordings with thought provoking lyrics. I think they are one of the few bands out there that really care about how their recordings sound and presented. Their drummer, Danny Carey, is also from my hometown of Paola, KS. Big deal, huh?

    Check out "Opiate". Arguably one of Tool's finest. Released in 1992.Two songs recorded live new years eve in 91/92 are awesome. The only down side is the length. There's only six songs totalling 27 mins.:( Seven including the hidden track. For everyone's info, every Tool CD has a hidden track at the end of the CD. Just let the cd continue playing after the last song and about 30 secs later the hidden track will play:)
    I wasn't expecting this much interest in Tool or I would have mentioned this with my first posting.
    Gary.

    The Violent Femmes - Black Girls. It's get those 6&1/2ers moving for sure. Great studio imaging. The music can best be described as Glenn Miller on acid and coffee. The rest of their music is much smoother, but still good.

    Tool fans: If you haven't yet, remove the part that the CD clamps into. I did this with my Undertow and it was, uh, well... interesting. It's the only one I had and am curious as to the others.

    Default Hidden Undertow

    The hidden track on Undertow is actually 69 seconds after the last listed song. Why '69' I don't know for sure. Sure is one of my favorites!

    Thanks for all the info on Tool. I'm definitely going to get
    some Tool cd's for Christmas. The Bends and OK Computer
    by Radiohead sound great on the SDA's also.

    The Police - Synchronicity
    Joe Satriani - Flying in a Blue Dream
    Steely Dan - Aja
    Peter Gabriel - So

    I agree about Brothers in Arms. Love over Gold sounds good, too.

    Going to look through my library to jog my memory, but one that immediately comes to mind is Supertramp's "Fool's Overture" off of their "Even in the Quietest Moments" CD.
