SHM-SACD (Super High Material SACD) is the ultimate Super Audio CD that utilizes the materials and technologies that were developed for the SHM-CD to further enhance the audio-resolution. These discs are made with polycarbonate developed for the screen of the liquid crystal display. As it has a higher transparency, players can read the signal more faithfully. Also, it excels in fluidity, which enables you to cast a more accurate pit. What works wonders for a low resolution format such as CD should offer even greater sonic improvements in a real high resolution format such as SACD.
Recorded in Munich, Germany, with co-producer and engineer Mack, The Game contains many of the group's best titles and is considered by many to be their finest effort. Originally released in 1980, the title's sound mix is large, with the group's patented tight harmonies spread across a wide sound-stage: The late Freddie Mercury's lead vocals soar high and low with emotion; Brian May's cutting and ringing guitar blends with the steady timekeeping of drummer Roger Taylor and bassist John Deacon.
This collection features very strong writing, including surprising contributions from Deacon with Another One Bites The Dust as well as his homage to Eric Carmen/The Raspberries with I Need Your Loving Tonight. Mercury's Crazy Little Thing Called Love and Play The Game supply the other mega-hits from this album.
Reissue from Queen featuring the high-fidelity SHM-SACD format (fully compatible with standard SACD player, but it does not play on standard CD players) and 24bit/96kHz digital remastering by Bob Ludwig.
