5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding, March 6 2004
This review is from: MI-5: Volume One (DVD)
I'd give it 6 stars if I could.
The best series I have seen since Band of Brothers.
It's tight paced and has fully believable characters.
Viewing more than one episode per night is emotionally draining.
Driving the episode menu is poor, but once you are in, it's a wild ride.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning, March 5 2004
This review is from: Boulez Conducts Ravel (Audio CD)
I've been an audiophile for over 40 years.
Very few recordings rivet my attention.
This is one of them.

1.0 out of 5 stars I had hoped for more, March 5 2004
I liked the soundtrack in the movie...a lot.
I thought the SACD would be a complete remix of the original soundtrack masters.
I was ready for the stunning quality that some of the early classical recordings have been transformed into, for example, the George Szell SACD recordings available here at Amazon.
I was vastly wrong.
The sound quality reminds me of early 45's (if anybody remembers). Just without clicks.
A real waste of an SACD, or even a CD.
I still like the music enough to not throw it away. I'll just never select it as an example of the SACD technology art.
