Elton John SACD releases

Some of Elton John's catalog have been re-released as hybrid multi-channel SACDs. They are:

Elton John (1st Album)
Madman Across the Water
Tumbleweed Connection
Honky Chateau
Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy

I was wondering how they sounded. Has anyone out there picked them up? If so, what are your impressions?


I just bought Madmann Across the Water and Elton John. I am listening to Elton John as I right this and I love this album. It ticks(pisses) me off that I have lived this long being an EJ fan and have never heard this album. This SACD Hybrid is simply wonderfull.

I think that the Super Audio Center in Boulder Colorado is doing it right! These discs were mastered there. I read also that the new John Hiatt album is being done there.
I finally listened to these discs in multi-channel. Also very nice. I still prefer two-channel, however.
