Excellent! But Canada doesn't get the 5.1 tracks?
on October 5, 2006
I think it's a great CD, and I think it's going to be more known than Poodle Hat was. White & Nerdy is fantastic. I can't stop listening to it or watching the video. Admittedly, I had never heard the Chamillionaire song, so I looked it up and watched his Ridin' video, and now Weird Al's video is even funnier.
I was a little confused by reviews online mentioning a PCM stereo mix, a 5.1 surrond mix, and karaoke on the DVD that comes with the CD. Even this amazon.ca listing states that as part of it, but I could only seem to access videos on the DVD. Then I figured out, the US got a Dual Diac flipper with CD on one side, and DVD on the other, which includes the videso, plus the aforementioned surround and karaoke mixes. Someone from Australia wrote a review at amazon.com saying that there they have the 2 separate disc version, and the DVD doesn't have the enhanced mixes.
So I guess here in Canada, we have the same 2 separate discs, and no enhanced audio. Which is too bad, since the separate DVD would have the space on it to include the extra audio.
I'm inclined then to point out then that amazon.ca's listing is wrong, but maybe if you order here you do get the Dual-Disc flipper if they're imporing from the US. I bought mine locally, and it does say Made in Canada on the back.
