I've given the new Bjork album a spin and quite liked what I heard. Has anyone here had a chance to listen to the DVD Audio version of it? As far as I'm concerned, Bjork's music would really benefit from the increased sound resolution, as well as multichannel sound. So how about it?

OT: The music on the Dancer in the Dark DVD is very interesting also, and it is all in 5.1. Odd movie, but I really like the music. Will have to go pick up Vespertine...so far, I've only heard one track, but I liked it. Back when the Sugarcubes were around, I was fortunate enough to see them live. Bjork has a great stage presence and voice.

On-topic: Interesting...I hadn't heard of this, but just may have to pick it up.
Slightly off-topic: Is it just me, or does Bjork look like a cross between a Gelfling and a Troll doll?

I just got this DVD-A release. Being that this is my first DVD-A experience, I am pretty damn impressed. One thing that has me confused is that on my players display, it lists the audio as being 24 bit/48 kHz. I thought the tracks were supposed to be 96 kHz? I am using a Toshiba 4700.

I also bought this as my first DVD-A title. *WOW* I was totally blown away...the 96/24 surround mix is breathtaking...this atmospheric album is perfect for the DVD-A format. Not a gimmicky mix either, the rear channels are used almost entirely for ambience effects...I felt like I was sitting in a huge room, but in reality was in my small apartment.

This all got me very excited about future releases in the DVD-A format. I haven't bought any others yet, I do not care for any of the other artists currently out on DVD-A.
