I can't tell you how the SACD layer sounds because I've only listened to the CD layer. I'm moving soon and both my SACD players are boxed up. The CD layer sounded very good to me and I'm confident that the SACD is A-OK. What I do question about the album is the choice of material. The Zombies had three hit songs, which would be SHE'S NOT THERE, TELL HER NO, and TIME OF THE SEASON. Thusly, any greatest hits package of them has to have alot of filler that is non-hit material. I question the track selection of this package. There are 20 tracks. TIME OF THE SEASON and SHE'S NOT THERE have two versions each. So, there is a bunch of non-hit or filler tracks. What bugs me is that TIME OF THE SEASON is the only track from their last, and arguably best album, ODESSEY AND ORACLE. I just think 2 or 3 cuts from ODESSEY AND ORACLE should of been included here. BRIEF CANDLES would of been nice or BUTCHER'S TALE would of suited my fancy just fine. It just seems that the package is far too schewed to their 1964-5 sound. Their 1968 sound should of been better represented.
