Chris May says:
Regarding the SACD surround mix: This is a fantastic mix. The center channel once again is a treat to listen to all alone, as the backing vocals are mixed very hot and dry, allowing the listener to hear once again incredible “blend and intonation” typical of the Carpenters’ “sound” otherwise buried a bit in the original mix. Guitars, French horn and strings are mixed opposite each other giving once again the “orchestral surround” effect.
