Porcupine Tree – ‘In Absentia’ A DVD-Audio review by Patrick Cleasby

The name Porcupine Tree may not mean much to you now, but trust me, by the end of the year, it will. In an inspired move DTS Entertainment have taken an act that is still relatively underground on both sides of the Atlantic, albeit with a large and devoted following, and transformed their latest album into a stunning DVD-Audio disc using the best surround talent money can buy – just like Steely Dan’s superb ‘Everything Must Go’ DVD-Audio, this mix was created by Elliot Scheiner, and mastered by Darcy Proper. read more…

Frank Zappa – ‘Halloween – Live in NYC 1978’ A DVD-Audio review by Buzz Goddard

Graham Nash – ‘Songs for Survivors’ A DVD-Audio review by Stuart M. Robinson

For ‘Songs for Survivors’ his fifth solo project and his first since 1986, Nash moves back towards his English musical roots, although the album’s strongest influences are undoubtedly country and rock. read more…

Olivia Newton-John – ‘One Woman’s Live Journey’ A DVD-Audio review by Brett Rudolph

Oliva Newton-John brings back memories of my childhood; not only was she one of the first female vocalists that I can honestly say touched my heart, but she also helped draw my attention to members of the opposite sex. read more…

Queen – ‘A Night at the Opera’ A DVD-Audio review by Stuart M. Robinson

Few DVD-Audio releases can boast the level of hype and anticipation of that surrounding Queen’s ‘Night at the Opera’, due for release in April. DTS Entertainment have already delayed the launch numerous times from the original street date of November 20th 2001, putting the blame on various distribution issues, not least of which is the collapse of distributor Valley Entertainment. read more…

Steve Stevens – ‘Flamenco a Go Go’ A DVD-Audio review by Stuart M. Robinson

In these early days of DVD-Audio, there are precious few releases of contemporary recordings; the current catalogue consists mainly of ‘vintage’ 1970’s titles where quite understandably, the fidelity on offer isn’t quite up to today’s standards. read more…
