Default Porcupine Tree - In Absentia 2/21/20

In Absentia is getting the "deluxe" treatment. I already have the DVD-A and most of the bonus material offered but I will likely get this. The Blu Ray uses the same 5.1 mix as on the DVD-A so Steven did not remix this for surround. The cd's could possibly sound better if they are mastered differently.

I definitely expect the CDs to sound significantly better in an extended listening session with Steven's light-handed mastering done in 2017 for the vinyl releases.

"The first CD features Steven Wilson's 2017 remaster, which has considerably less compression and limiting for a more dynamic listening experience."

Shame Steven isn't revisiting the multis to create a new surround mix to go alongside the existing Elliot Scheiner mix, would be cool to hear a different take. He is doing another surround mix of King Crimson's 2019 album having previously done one in 2009, yet doesn't want to put his own moves on his own album? His call of course!

The existing Elliot Scheiner mix will be presented with the inverted channels from the DVD-A fixed but will otherwise be identical as they're using the original mastering also, which is fine by me as it's no slouch dynamically.

Looking forward to having this on one Blu-ray and will retire my DVD-A.

YES! I am thrilled to hear about this one! Way back when DVD-A and SACD were easily had at Best Buy I once held the DVD-A in my hands but ended up buying something else. I have regretted that decision for a long time. I cannot wait for this.

I love this album. $70 is steep though.
