Barenboim's Beethoven symphony cycle is the most emotionally complete, humane, and perfectly realized series of non-period instrument performances of this music to have appeared in decades. The best cycles of the past few years (Mackerras, Gielen, and Harnoncourt) have all belonged to the "authenticist" school to greater or lesser degree. Barenboim's achievement clearly demonstrates that a wonderful tradition is alive, vital, and still capable of renewal through intelligent understanding expressed in partnership with a like-minded orchestra, and above all, through supreme musicianship on the podium. His encounter with this music's generosity of spirit and deep passion will provoke, stimulate, challenge, and delight. - David Hurwitz

Composed for the Easter celebration of 1727 (traditionally performed at vesper on Good Friday), the Passion of St. Matthew is a monumental work. It is more than 2½ hrs worth of music that relates the story of the crucifixion of Jesus and his burial… ending in the expectant faith of his resurrection. The passion is divided into two main sections. The first covers the last supper to Jesus’s arrest. The second part covers the trial, his tortuous trip to the cross, and his burial. A spiritual trip for both the performers and the audience alike!

With the 1974 disintegration of the original Alice Cooper group, Alice was free to launch a solo career. He wisely decided to re-enlist the services of Bob Ezrin for his solo debut, Welcome to My Nightmare, which was a concept album tied into the story line of the highly theatrical concert tour he launched soon after the album's release. While the music lost most of the gritty edge of the original AC lineup, Welcome to My Nightmare remains Alice's best solo effort – while some tracks stray from his expected hard rock direction, there's plenty of fist-pumping rock to go around.

Arguably Megadeth's strongest effort and a classic of early thrash, Peace Sells combines a punkish political awareness with a dark, threatening, typically heavy metal world-view, preoccupied with evil, the occult, and the like. The anthemic title track and "Wake Up Dead" are the two major standouts, and there is also a cover of Willie Dixon's "I Ain't Superstitious," which takes on an air of supernaturally induced paranoia in the album's context. The lines between hell and earth are blurred throughout the album, and the crashing, complex music backs up Dave Mustaine's apocalyptic vision of life as damnation – his limited vocal style is used to great effect, growling and snarling in a barely intelligible fashion under all the complicated guitar work. Vital, necessary thrash.

We may never associate Johann Strauss with Berlin (he's just so darn Vienna), but Nikolaus Harnoncourt does some ingenious programming on this disc to reveal one new facet of the composer's life: Strauss's numerous works tied to (or composed for) Berlin audiences. Thus, we finally get to hear the short but sweet Berlin version of the overture to A Night in Venice (performed here for the first time); Seid umschlungen, Millionen, the melancholy-tinged waltz that Strauss dedicated to Brahms; and the Simplicius Waltz that the composer himself conducted in Berlin in 1889. Throughout, Harnoncourt's tempos are accurate and never too fast. He lets this music slowly unfold; even the oom-pah-pahs sound studied. The Berlin Philharmonic performs these works gorgeously and the recorded sound is spectacular. –Jason Verlinde

From the moment the jagged riffing of "Prayer" begins to pour out of the speakers, one thing is quite clear: Disturbed has learned to cut the fat. Their first record was a massively heavy affair, but at times the music was mired in somewhat needless passages. But on Believe, Disturbed takes the sort of jump that their heroes in Soundgarden and Pantera made after their respective breakthrough records. No longer depending on the choppy tempos and percussion-based riffing of the past, guitarist Dan Donegan has made great strides in expanding their sound to include more varied guitar work all around. Take the title track, which moves from a brutal chug to a sweeping chorus that suddenly stops in its tracks and turns into a winding riff that recalls the work of vintage James Hetfield. It's great stuff, the kind of audible theatrics that makes good heavy metal so visceral and potent.

Cura set himself a hard act to follow in his outstanding debut disc of Puccini arias, but here he lives up to that reputation with an imaginative programme drawn from no fewer than six verismo composers. Leoncavallo's Pagliacci is the logical place to start, even if the Prologue – effectively a verismo manifesto – is really a baritone piece; the Argentinian tenor's rich, dark tone is well suited to such music, and the only shortcoming here is his indulgent introspection when the character should be addressing his audience.

Queen were straining at the boundaries of hard rock and heavy metal on Sheer Heart Attack, but they broke down all the barricades on A Night at the Opera, a self-consciously ridiculous and overblown hard rock masterpiece. Using the multi-layered guitars of its predecessor as a foundation, A Night at the Opera encompasses metal ("Death on Two Legs," "Sweet Lady"), pop (the lovely, shimmering "You're My Best Friend"), campy British music hall ("Lazing on a Sunday Afternoon," "Seaside Rendezvous"), and mystical prog rock ("'39," "The Prophet's Song"), eventually bringing it all together on the pseudo-operatic "Bohemian Rhapsody."

DISCLAIMER:THIS IS A REAUTHORING OF A SUPPOSED QUAD REEL TRANSFER DONE BY SOMEONE ELSE; RQR
My only contribution to this release is the lyrics slideshow; I always liked Ian Anderson's lyrics and this LP is no exception, so I decided to look 'em up and do a reauthoring. I also made some covers and decided to turn "positive" the cover just for kicks, if you don't like it , you can just turn it back to how it originally was.
The main reason is that I could not burn this DVD Audio properly, so I ripped the 96/24 tracks and added the images.
One thing; although it sounds fine, the frequency range of this transfer is quite limited- there is NOTHING above 16kHz, pitch black. To me , the person who did the transfer went crazy with the Noise Reduction and obliterated any HF info, either that or this is a pretty good CD-4 LP transfer. As it is, I could have done a 48/24 DVD-A, but, alas…
One more thing, the Audio remains untouched.
Enjoy it!,
