Personally, I wouldn’t mind a little more info on these guys…I’ve got what I can find by them, including the BLBT single (is this really out of print?), but am wondering if there are any singles from the new album…especially Butterfly Wings or Trigger For Happiness. Any info?

Have to agree here…in the midst of all the Enigma-bashing that’s popped up, I like the new disc a lot…especially track three, Return to Innocence. Don’t really mind the male vocals on other tracks that much, either…

Besides, without a _major_ change in style and content, there isn’t much Enigma could do to create another groundbreaking album, and still remain Enigma…much of their “sound” is that floaty, dreamy style, and I really don’t mind that they chose to go with mideastern chanting instead of Gregorian on this release. A simple rehash of the first album, while it might still have sounded good, would be boring…

The only one I know of is _Solid Gold Hell_, available as an import from Cocomelos Records. Decent enough, although I wouldn’t rave about it.

The only one I know of is _Solid Gold Hell_, available as an import from Cocomelos Records. Decent enough, although I wouldn’t rave about it. The first four tracks have the best recording quality, the rest of them were obviously recorded from somewhere in the audience, and on some you can hear more of the testosterone-laden ass next to the tape recorder singing than Trent! I figure it’s worth having for those first four tracks…but if you can get it used, do that before blowing the money for the full import price.

If it’s the same ‘Cold Hearted Snake’ as I’m thinking of, it was Paula Abdul, a few years back. Is the cover good? Might be interested in hearing it…

Where’d I get all the info? Lots of reading, and working in the only theatre in Alaska to have Dolby Digital installed. Anchorage’s Fireweed theatre was at the time the biggest Dolby Digital installation on the West Coast.

Well, I’m no expert, but here’s what I’ve gathered…

* Dolby – uses the same techniques as your Dolby cassettes…noise reduction, basically.
* DolbySR – the noise reduction, plus better placement of where the noises appear to be coming from in the theatre. Stands for Dolby Spectral Recording.
* Digital Dolby – in addition to the normal sound track, a digital track is printed between the sockets of the film. When a theatre is equipped to read and reproduce this track, it results in near cd quality sound (no background hiss and pops), and also uses six tracks to place the sounds…one center, two front (left and right), two rear (left and right), and one subwoofer channel. End result-some of the best quality sound I’ve ever heard in a movie theater. When it’s used effectively, it can be really mind-blowing.
* DTS – a similar technique to Digital Dolby, only developed by Sony (if I remember correctly) and Lucasfilm…which can cause some licensing conflicts in theatres already set up with Digital Dolby. Competing systems and all. Major difference…instead of using the space between the sprocket holes, the digital track is printed in a small strip on the edge of the film, which means the actual print can’t be quite as wide. I recently saw Schindler’s list in DTS, though, and didn’t see any noticeable difference in the width of the image.
* THX – developed by Lucasfilm. Not so much an improvement in the sound itself, THX uses special placing of speakers and translation of the audio tracks to make sure no matter where in the theatre you sit, you get the true stereo effect…something which can suffer greatly towards the edges of a theatre in a non-THX environment.

Where’d I get all the info? Lots of reading, and working in the only theatre in Alaska to have Dolby Digital installed. Anchorage’s Fireweed theatre was (this may have changed by now) at the time the biggest Dolby Digital installation on the West Coast…the auditorium sits over 900. Digital installations has been done before, just not in an auditorium that large. Was a more than $10,000 upgrade to the existing system. Plus, though I don’t work there anymore, the licensing agreements have been settled to the point that it now has DTS also.

Incidentally, except for the DTS (because it’s from a different company), all of the systems are compatable. Using digital negates the need for normal Dolby (noise reduction for digital sound?), however it’s perfectly possible (and has been done) to have a movie recorded in both Dolby Digital and THX, and I suppose in both DTS and THX. Sounds incredible, too…

Really? Bizarre…up here in Anchorage, it actually is fairly ‘easy to find,’ as both locations of Mammoth Music (the local ‘alternative’ music store) regularly have at least one copy on the shelves, and I even see it fairly regularly at Camelot…
