I finally got to really listen to this disc last night after having bought it a while ago. I also have the remastered version (damnit!) which is a major improvement over the original muddy-sounding CD. Well, the SACD made my jaw drop, again. It was like listening to the album for the first time. Starting with Rhythm of the Heat through all 8 tracks, a very black background, rock-solid instrument separation, improved dynamics, and tonally transparent and clear. I could hear the very electronic nature of most of the synthesized instruments which I'm not a fan of, but the way he layers them together to create magnificent textures is just amazing. As you're probably aware, most of his music is very 'bassy' with lots of rhythm (I call it earthy). In the past I would have to EQ the sound just to get even a somewhat fuzzy picture of all the earthy rhythm. Not any more. You really get to enjoy Jerry Marotta's drums jamming with Tony Levins bass and PG's low-frequency soundscapes. Very clear and natural. Now I can't wait to 'really' listen to Passion.
