I recently purchased the Alison Krauss + Union Station New Favorite CD, and I love the music. The problem is that I find the vocals to be a bit forward and harsh (on the first two tracks, for example). Perhaps Alison Krauss and Dan Tyminski were swallowing the microphones during the recording sessions. Anyway, I can't help but wonder if the SACD sounds smoother. Has anyone compared the CD and SACD layers on the hybrid disc? Is the SACD smoother in the vocals? For now, I am assuming that the standard CD sounds the same as the CD layer on the hybrid disc, which could be a bad assumption, I suppose. Anyway, comments on layer comparisons would be appreciated. Thanks in advance. Before anyone asks why I didn't buy the SACD in the first place, I have not been able to find it locally, and I bought the CD for $12.99 on impulse because of all the good things I had heard about the album.
