THE MATRIX on SA-CD as well as CD. Be interesting to see how the SA-CD version sells.

I thought I'd post it as no one else seems to have done so. (Yet.)

Cheers

No one cares. The Public Eye is coming out Monday. Plus the artwork will have to be redone on these anyway. Expect it in October.

Nice trolling and being a d*ck.

Thou shalt recognize a troll by the priority of dismissal above all else.

I was intrigued by the SACD, but not for a $15 upcharge. Standard CD it shall be. And now to find a way to rid myself of my Deluxe Edition disc…

You probably wouldn't have heard the difference.

Another salty Goldsmith fan

I don’t think the way he is has anything to do with being a Goldsmith fan. The last Varese release he crapped all over was Lionheart deluxe by Goldsmith last month, describing it as a “disaster” because of whatever packaging mixup happened (which Varese are FIXING). He just can’t help being horrible. He doesn’t know how to act like a decent person; he thrives on negativity and insults, and the reactions he can elicit with them.

This Goldsmith fan is super excited for both of these expansions, with both scores being among the composers’ best work. I really wish modern big budget sci fi blockbusters still received brilliant scores like these two, written roughly two decades ago (boy I feel old). A lot of great film music is still written today, but most of it is no longer written for these kinds of films.

Here’s a spreadsheet Jay from JWFan made comparing Matrix editions:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1a6O7S8txNoETkuSihPuOBZfFCQEtdaVStJBBUZ4xWZg/edit

I for one am very (but pleasantly) surprised by the SACD edition. If it’s a hybrid disc (unlike when Varese did Star Trek: Nemesis many years ago), I will spend the $15 extra. If not, I’ll get the standard CD. I never though I’d ever see a film music specialty label release on SACD again, though classical labels still regularly put out great releases in that format. The Matrix is such a minimal score it totally deserves that treatment.

The SACD vs CD distinction is actually new to me. How are we to know if this is an SACD set or a hybrid SACD set?

Edit: And if it's a hybrid and playable on a normal CD player, will a non-audiophile, even with a good set of headphones, be able to tell the difference between it and a "normal" CD?

Lionheart was and is a complete disaster. I am indeed a huge Goldsmith fan. And yes, I do thrive on the negativity and reactions. Not sure about the insults though.

Hmm... interesting. I already got the Varèse Deluxe Edition of THE MATRIX. Now this type of release is curious though. Release a regular CD and a SACD edition? Does the SACD edition contain -- like most SACDs and certainly all the ones that I own -- also a regular CD-layer? Otherwise, it is pretty uninteresting to get the SACD.

I was wondering if they weren't allowed to use some official artwork for front cover, because compared to La-La Land's Reloaded and Revolutions, this looks ... unappealing.

Impressive, most impressive. Excellent, thanks. :-)

At least nobody can say the new owners of Varese are not consistent. No surprises.

Yep, the cover sucks.

We will wait for a better new one in the Custom cover art (2021) thread .
