Styx Paradise Theatre on Limited Edition Japanese Import SHM-SACD
1981 concept album Paradise Theatre – Styx's only No. 1 album – is a fictional account of the Chicago theater of the same name, described by Dennis DeYoung as a metaphor for America's changes in the '70s and early '80s. The album produced four charting singles - including DeYoung's "The Best of Times" (No. 3 on Billboard 100), Shaw's "Too Much Time on My Hands" (No. 9), "Nothing Ever Goes As Planned" (No. 54) and "Rockin' the Paradise" (No. 10 on Top Rock Tracks chart) - and became Styx's fourth consecutive triple-platinum album.
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.
