For some background, refer to this poll.

The 30th anniversary SACD. Some of the tracks could possibly be phase inverted. Thanks to the SFX, the easier tracks to identify are 
  1. Time: Listen to the bells/chimes. When you invert the phase, you'd find there is more height to the chimes, and the whole room is ringing. It just sounds more correct that way.
  2. Money: Listen to the the cashier. It sounds disjointed with 'holes' until you invert the phase.

Are these tracks out of phase? Try inverting them and report back which you prefer.

While I don't have a matching version of DSoTM to that of the SACD, I do have a CD of "Amused To Death". And I find the CD edition to be far far superior to the SACD equivalent. Anybody have this in SACD? If yes, invert the phase. Does the music instantly flow better, and makes more sense?

In the beginning of the track, does the dog barking outside instantly become more realistic sounding? Does the guitar rifts flow better? Is the SACD now able to transport you to some weird trance, like the CD can?

Could this SACD, like the DSoTM before it (Roger Walters is a member of Pink Floyd) also be phase inverted?

It's really hard to do A/B comparison as the volumes don't exactly match. And because this has been remastered again on SACD, I wonder if converting this to PCM, and then try to sum it with the redbook will work (anybody have the time to run this?). Let me know what you think if you have this SACD (and CD).
