Frankie Goes To Hollywood - Rage Hard, The Sonic Collection Just got this SACD direct from London and it is awesome! I have been a FGTH fan for many years and have been through 3 CD's and countless 7" and 12" mixes of their greatest tracks, so this SACD was an absolute must buy for me. The track run down is a veritable greatest hits collection including such greats as: Relax Two Tribes The World is My Oyster Welcome To The Pleasuredome Maximum Joy Rage Hard War Born to Run and more... It goes without saying -- but I'll say it anyway -- that the sound quality is stunning and the best that I've ever heard these songs in on any format. Some of the tracks are a little low in volume, but they all exhibit a drastic improvement in clarity and dynamic range over any other CD version of these songs. The bass is pounding and really drives these tunes right through the speakers. It's a hybrid SACD and contains the album in CD quality on the hybrid layer. I checked the sound quality on the CD layer and it was better than the "Welcome to the Pleasuredome" CD that I have, but not as good as the SACD. I've saved the best part for last...This SACD is Multichannel. Now I'm not a big multichannel fan as everyone here most likely knows, but if there were ever a band that screamed out for multi-channel that's not named "Pink Floyd", then it has to be Frankie Goes To Hollywood. "Relax" and "Two Tribes" in Multi-channel are just fantastic and the MC mix adds an entirely different dimension to these songs. I found myself sitting there with a huge grin on my face just listening to this disc and having a great time. Back when I first got an SACD player in Oct 2000, "Welcome To The Pleasuredome" was one of my "Pie in the sky" discs; meaning that I wondered how fantastic it would sound if it ever got mastered to DSD and an SACD released. I quickly dismissed that notion and figured that it would be a long time if ever that I'd get to hear that. Well in Jan 2002 I have the very next best thing...the killer tracks from that album on an SACD and spinning in my Sony XA777ES! BooYaa Grandma....BooYaa! Today I am an even happier SACD owner and this disc is really a must buy for any fan of the music of this awesome 80's band. Frankie Say.... BUY THIS SACD!
