Description in Japanese

フーズ・ネクスト [SHM-SACD] [初回限定生産] / ザ・フー

[SA-CD~SHM仕様~ 第1回 名盤全20タイトル] 透明性/流動性に優れるSHM素材をボディに使用、DSD本来の特性が生きるシングルレイヤー(2ch)方式を採り入れた、究極のSuper Audio CDシリーズ。SA-CD層のみを有するシングルレイヤー型とすることで透過性を排除、音楽情報を余すところなく読み取るに十分な反射率を確保。非圧縮データの収録を可能にするため、SA-CD層は2chのみに特化している。レーザーが反射膜までの距離をより正確に往復できるよう、ボディにはクリアな液晶パネル用ポリカーボネート素材を採用。これはSHM-CDと同じ素材で、通常のSA-CDと比べ透明性は勿論、より正確なビットを形成するために必要な流動性にも優れている。 ■ザ・フーの第5作にして彼らの最高傑作に挙げられることの多い名盤。全英1位・全米4位を記録。パワフルなサウンドに加え「ババ・オライリー」ではシーケンサーによるシンセサイザーを導入するなど、彼らの先取精神が発揮された作品。「ビハインド・ブルー・アイズ」「無法の世界」収録。1971年発表。 初SA-CD化。国内オリジナル・アナログ・テープを基にした2010年最新DSDマスター。

      AWESOME! 5

      I hesitated buying this because I had just gotten the SHM-SACD edition of Elton John's Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, and the sound quality of that one was terrible. I saw the other reviews for Who's Next and decided I would give it a try. This one is AWESOME! I'm a huge Who fan and I don't think Who's Next has ever sounded better. This is one of the best SACD's I've ever heard. If you are a Who fan, or are just curious about Who's Next, one of the greatest albums of all time -- BUY THIS DISC -- you will not be disappointed.

      Astonishing 5

      Apparently transferred flat from the master tapes in the UK without any tweaking, this version is definitive to my ears. Sure, there are some other versions that might bring out a bit more clarity as a result of increased treble or midrange, but this version stomps them in terms of warmth and no matter how hard Moon hits those cymbals, they never sound "tinny" or sizzle. Just an epic release. Not sure why another reviwer mentioned the MFSL release, as that was sourced from the '95 remix and has zero to do with this; the original mix. If somebody said you could have a copy of the master tape of Who's Next for fifty bucks ... what would you say? This is probably as close to that as you'll ever encounter.

      Worth every cent 5

      The best sounding digital version of this title I've heard. Amazing, lifelike sound. This disc rocks!

      The sound is dull and flat and certainly not worth the $50 Just as overblown than the MFSL version a few years back. I was able to break even by selling my copy on Ebay.

      Musicwise one of the best, poor sound 2

      I also own the deluxe cd version of this. I had high hopes for the SHM sacd, but was bitterly disapointed. What a letdown. The SHM sounds flat, lifeless and dull, the dynamics are gone. Maybe it is a matter of taste, but I want a remaster to open up the sound and bring life to it. Of course-Who's Next will never be an audiophile sounding cd, but it is a bit strange that this SHM version is so inferior to the cd.
