Okay....here is my take on it...…



Overall....EXCELLENT !


It really takes advantage of Atmos by immersing you inside of the forests and the music, orchestra style, and is very relaxing. I could see myself listening to this in bed going to sleep at night.


It is a bluray format so it provides a different picture for each track, with it being a bluray I sort of feel cheated it does not have video, kinds the same as DVD audio. Having said that, it is certainly better than nothing and are decent pics. I found myself listening with eyes closed most of the time, so having a picture to look at is no real issue. I think any audio DVD/Bluray is going to leave you feeling like there should be video, since those are primarily video discs.....


Several of the tracks stand out over others....the use ambience is well done and just the right amount of discrete for what is trying to be accomplished, every one wants more discrete, when you have ceiling speakers, I am not sure there would ever be too much discrete....


The surround discrete is well done...….overall it is nicely done and very relaxing and immersive experience . If you are into this sort of thing then its great, if you are just looking for cheap thrills, then its probably not going to wow you with over the top effects. It is more to the immersion/realism side of things, rather than a discrete pan fest in the top speakers.


The tops are active the entire time with immersion and discrete effects...…..it is well done and I do not regret the purchase.


It is well done enough I am now ordering the video version …..that is done documentary style with a story and narration as the Atmos in this was enough to entice me to have a look at the documentary version. This version without video and narration is something to take in and relax to as I would never watch the video version with narration to relax or goto sleep on.


How the 2 differ, I do not know other than that...….I will know here soon as I am ordering the video version now...….luckily I have Atmos in my bedroom and will be listening to this tonight to fall asleep to !!!!!


Price to value feeling...….when you get into 20 buck discs its hard to not think they cost too much, but I do not feel robbed and it is certainly not the worst Atmos disk I have,.....much more pleasant than Kraftwerk......but now we are in to personal choice territory....


It is certainly very clean and clear sounding a good example of what all Atmos should be and good example of why this format is not going anywhere......no Betamax here, Atmos certainly delivers a very high level of immersion. In a couple I literally felt like I was in a jungle as I imagine it to be super close to actually hearing it on location.

OK, since one can never know in what room or what was going on in the mixing room,because I imagine my room sounds nothing like the mix studio`s room, I took the liberty of raising the top channels up by about 5db and it brought this mix together....lowered the mains 2 db and bumped the surrounds 1 db.



It went from very good, to outstanding...……


After about the third time thru with this now, I can honestly say this about one of the best recordings I have ever heard of anything...…..it would be interesting for some one to run this thru the analyzer to see how dynamic and how clean it actually is.



While my room is far from perfect and I certainly do not own high end equipment, this recording/mix is soo good it makes my average stuff sound stellar !




I can only imagine this on a high end system....


While a lot of Atmos movies sound good, this is more in line of what I first imagined Atmos to sound like...…….

The difference between the video version and the audio one is that the video one has narration. What is the deal with the 40 minute bonus track? Is that just all of the tracks threaded together with no breaks?

Yes, no breaks...….the video version has a run time of 90 minutes, so almost 50 minutes difference.


Here is some info from the booklet, since it is posted no where and it would have been nice to read "BEFORE" buying it ,....probably more would have purchased it had anyone taken the time to do decent listings of it....

Just received the 4K video version...…..we will see how it stacks up, the audio one sets a pretty high bar for sound.

OK......it only took 10 minutes of watching to know exactly what the audio version was recommended over the video version.


I hate to say it because I like the guy, but redfords narration kills it...….80 year old smoker voice is at best annoying.



I will say I also feel cheated since the audio bluray should have came with the video...…...as it appears to be almost the same, only some transition times and the narration make it different...……



Audio version outstanding audio...….a little confusing since it came with no video and costs more than the 4K/bluray combo version....


Video version, same great audio and the video is excellent....should have had benedict Cumberbatch narrating like the south pacific series...….


If I had to chose one to send back I am not sure which it would be...... I think it would be the video version......yeah, the narration is that bad.


Like any review it comes down to personal taste, you might think either one is the best thing since sliced bread or hate both.....just my observations and take on it.
