It certainly utilizes the spatial arena 5.1 gives you...and in days of old, 
I might "bug out to it" pretty hard laying around late night. It's like 
being fully enveloped in a hammock of pink and purple clouds, cradled in 
soothing soundscapes washing over you and over you.....and over and over and 
So it holds true to it's name, they are works in Surround Sound, it's just 
not chock-full o' variety, that's all. There's even a possibility to pick 
out which tracks are Jack's and Ben's - their style is in there ...but you 
have to listen really deeply into the clouds.
Maybe my unenthusiastic response if compounded by my let-down feeling I had 
after Travelogue.
Oh Well, I now have bookends for my MBM stuff.
