Well, this will be my first real "negative" review of an SACD since I invested in the format 14 months ago. I own 42 SACD's from virtually every company that makes them and this is probably the worst one that I own. Now when I say worst, I mean worst when compared to all the other SACD's -- not worst as in "sounds just awful". The Meatloaf--Bat out of Hell SACD was my cellar dwellar before I got the Top Gun Soundtrack. That one sounds no better to me than my Gold CD of the same album. The Top Gun SACD just doesn't sound any better than a good CD of the same music would. I notice perhaps a little more solid bottom end but mostly this whole SACD just left me feeling unimpressed. I don't know if it's a matter of the original recording, and perhaps it just wasn't recorded well enough to warrant transfer to SACD -- which begs the question to Sony -- Why Bother?? Having the few extra songs is nice and Otis Redding's "Sittin on the dock of the bay" is probably the best sounding track on the disc. If you're not a total "Top Gun" freak, I'd probably skip this one and get the CD instead. Let's hope Sony did better with Journey's Greatest Hits...I'll be reviewing that one tomorrow.
