    Listening Day.
    With my new player today (Parasound HALO D3 for those who didn't know) I did some major listening today and thought I would share my playlist in case anyone cares...

    Ennio Morricone HERE'S TO YOU: Tribute Live

    YO-YO MA PLAYS ENNIO MORRICONE

    Elton John HONKY CHATEAU (SACD & CD layer)

    The Zutons TIRED OF HANGING AROUND

    David Bowie ALADDIN SANE

    Sarah Brightman DIVA: SINGLES COLLECTION

    STARSHIP TROOPERS: Soundtrack

    Sarah Mclachlan SURFACING

    Jocelyn Pook UNTOLD THINGS

    Depeche Mode A BROKEN FRAME & SONGS OF FAITH AND DEVOTION (CD & SACD layers)

    Fleetwood Mac SAY YOU WILL

    Billy Joel's THE STRANGER (SACD-only)

    The Smashing Pumpkins ADORE

    Queen THE GAME (DVD-A)

    Jewel 0304

    KILL BILL VOL 1: Soundtrack


    What a bizarre grouping of stuff as I type it out I realize that. Anyway, the real stand-outs from this bunch would probably be Jewel's 0304, which had some dynamic bass and Fleetwood Mac's SAY YOU WILL had some incredibly detailed sonics happening especially on songs with intense fingerpicking (BLEED TO LOVE HER).

    STARSHIP TROOPERS is an HDCD and always sounded superb and still does! David Bowie's ALADDIN SANE, while not as refined as the SACD titles available from him, still holds a good punch being remastered. Overall a great day of listening and enjoying the new player.

    Sounds like a fun day!

    I didn't realize that The Zutons disk had been released in North America. Last time I checked (which was quite a while ago) it was UK only. Thanks for mentioning it. I'm placing an order at Amazon later today and will be sure to include it.
