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.
While the band's early work was mainstream progressive rock, they would enjoy
greater critical and commercial success when they incorporated more conventional
and radio-friendly elements into their work in the mid-1970s, going on to sell
more than 60 million albums. They reached their peak of commercial success with
1979's double Grammy winning album, Breakfast in America, which has sold more
than 20 million copies and features the hit singles: ''The Logical Song'',
''Goodbye Stranger'' , ''Breakfast in America''.

"Breakfast in America is a textbook-perfect album of post-Beatles,
keyboard-centered English art rock that strikes the shrewdest possible balance
between quasi-symphonic classicism and rock & roll... [T]he songs here are
extraordinarily melodic and concisely structured, reflecting these musicians'
saturation in American pop since their move to Los Angeles in 1977." -
Stephen Holden, Rolling Stone
