Great album, but mix needs work
Review written by Audiophile Addict, March 20th, 2005

My review is based on the DVD-A high res mixes only, not the DVD-V mix also on this release. I was excited to see this album released to include "Silver Springs", a classic that needed a home long before now. It's also interesting to note that the sequence of songs is different from the original vinyl as well, a surprise if you're used to the old album.

Everything is superbly crystal clear. Lindsey's guitar work just sparkles in this format. What is lacking, is the attention to the lead vocals. I'm not sure what the mix engineers were attempting to do with some of the leads. At times, they are clear, then in the next song and the leads are practically drowned out by instruments or backing vocals. While the use of the surround is well intentioned, a little more attention to the music and less on the technology would have been appreciated so you don't have to tweak the balance on every other song.

It's also interesting to note that "Never Going Back Again" features an extended section that has electric guitar licks and some snare work that weren't there on the original (I had to listen to the old vinyl to make sure I wasn't going crazy). There's no mention anywhere in the notes or the disc as to whether this is original material that was edited or added for this release. Anyhow, depending on your mood, or purist attitude of the original, it's either a cool addition or takes something away from the simplicity of the song. Just a matter of taste here.

"Songbird" seems to have been re-mastered with great care. The original vinyl and the later CD release revealed the impromptu recording of this song. While Christine's voice was always heard, it was never as clear and balanced with the instruments as I would have liked (love her sultry voice). However, justice has been done for this gorgeous ballad on the DVD-A in both the stereo and surround mixes; her voice comes through like crystal, well done.

The hi-res stereo mix makes up for the imbalanced hi-res surround mix. It is clean, clear and meets the audiophile standards that this release appeals to. I recommend it for the stereo mix, and if you're willing to adjust the balance (if you have this capability) for each track, the surround mix sounds good once adjusted per track. Oh, and again, "Silver Springs" - VERY COOL!

A CLASSIC RESTORED AT LAST!
Review written by NICK, March 20th, 2005

THIS ALBUM IS THE MAC'S FLAGSHIP & AT LAST WITH MODERN REMASTERING IT SOUNDS AS CRISP & AS FRESH AS EVER. FULL MARKS TOO FOR THE INCLUSION OF SILVER SPRINGS. BREATHTAKING & SUPERB...

5/5.05/5.05/5.05/5.05/5.0
It's perfect...the best album of all time
Review written by Ian Jones, March 20th, 2005

Everyone has heard Fleetwood Mac's classic RUMOURS album. But the only thing that made it not-so-perfect was the fact that the original version of Silver Springs had to be cut. Here in this DVD-Audio format, the album is presented in it's entirety as it was meant to be.

When I listened to this initially, I was shocked. The sound of the record comes to life. If you close your eyes, you literally feel like you're in the studio with the band. The vocals are crisp and clear, and each track has added instruments that you couldn't hear before. 'Never Going Back Again' has a really fresh sound with the added drum parts. The bass parts on 'Go Your Own Way' really come to life, and the solo at the end has been punched up a bit.

The vocals on this album are unmatched. Lindsey's vocals on '2nd Hand News' come through very nicely. Stevie's 'Silver Springs' is beautiful with Lindsey's violin-like guitar parts. Christine's 'Don't Stop' and 'You Make Loving Fun' are equally as powerful...and 'Songbird' is as perfect as ever.

I don't have one bad thing to say about this DVD. The interview menu which allows all the band members to talk about each song is interesting. Stevie's comments about Silver Springs are especially saddening. This really is a nice package. Now, one can hope that maybe they'll remaster the CD so we can listen to it in our cars!

    Comments »

"Fleetwood Mac's RUMOURS is literally one of the most successful rock albums in music history. Along with winning the Grammy Award for "Album of the Year" in 1977, the record spent more than 6 months at #1 on the charts, included four Top Ten singles, and has gone platinum an incredible 18 times (and counting). Therefore, its re release in the stunning DVD-Audio format is certainly warranted. Remastered in 6-channel Advanced Resolution Surround Sound, the album sounds amazingly crisp. In addition, it includes a previously unreleased track called "Silver Springs.""
"This disc will play only on players with a DVD logo. For those with a DVD-Audio logo, it can be played in Advanced Resolution surround sound (six channels) or stereo. For players with a DVD-Video logo, it contains a Dolby Digital Surround mix."

There are also audio interviews with the members of the Rumours line-up about the making of each song.
