I'm not going to even attempt getting this sucker off
So Dolby Atmos, will there be a noticeable difference when listening through a pair of headphones, or do you need some elaborate set-up? Either way, I think I will be springing for this set.
Unfortunately, I wasn't able to hear the Sgt Pepper Dolby Atmos remix Giles did for that one day theatrical presentation. But, from the accounts I read it was quite spectacular.
It is part of the surround sound mix and requires a system with at least 5.1 speakers plus 2-4 ceiling or "Atmos" speakers (which are designed to reflect the sound off the ceiling).
Nothing you can experience with headphones that I'm aware of (although there are some headphones designed for 5.1, I've never heard of any with height and Atmos decoding).
Not really interested in this, now if it was 'Listen like Thieves' i'd be in like a shot!
Slightly OT but what was the concept for the LLT video for the single. It looks like they were doing a homage to the music hall in the movie 'Escape from New York'
Love them or hate them, I think that an Apple lossless and or flac headphone surround mix should be created for all of these re-mix projects.
The headphone oriented surround format you’re seeking is DTS Headphone X.

Pre-orders are now available on the INXS online store - including for a guaranteed RED ltd ed of the 1/2 speed masters....cheaper than the JB list price for the black ed. Ordered. Will be interesting to do a listen-off with this and MOFI and original pressings.
I have a 5.1.2 Dolby Atmos setup, and though I admit I don't know this album intimately I look forward to hearing it (as well as the R.E.M. AFTP Atmos mix). I personally enjoy good Atmos movie mixes. No, it's not essential but once you've heard great overhead effects it's hard to go back.
It should be adventurous to match the dance floor vibe that so much of the album has.
Not a mistake - Kick is being released as both a single black vinyl (via the above link) and a 2x45rpm half speed mastered set.
And a RED vinyl 2x45rpm half speed mastered set (via the universal store).
Very reasonably priced!
