Nice Sound and a Decent Value
I have one of the original PS3's that play SACD's and PS2 games. I have never owned an SACD so I thought I would try this one since it was not that expensive.
I already owned the mp3 version of this album and I can truly say listening to the SACD 5.1 mix really adds to the enjoyment of listening to this music.
I can't say how this SACD compares to others in quality since this is the only SACD I own.

Come Away with Me [Super Audio Hybrid CD] by Norah Jone
I consider this SACD (cd hybrid) a must own for anyone who enjoys a female singers voice over a jazz melody. Norah can captivate you with sweet, smooth notes that will make you sink into your chair and hang on every word. The songs aren't the deepest lyricly, but carry an emotional weight that makes them easy to listen to and get better every time you hear them.
This will play on a regular cd player, but to get the most musical resolution and dynamics, you must use an SACD player and a good set of speakers. Pick this up and enjoy it over and over.
My personal favorite: The Painter Song and Nightingale. Enjoy.

Listen with headphones! Beautiful voice and music!
Norah Jones, whether her album sales, critics or popularity are involved or not, has done something that few can do; she impressed me. Who am I? Nobody special, but it takes a lot to impress me these days where music is concerned.
I am not a fan of "pop" music; most of it is contrived, cliche and boring. This album was a huge success, won a grammy and sold millions, but lots of albums do that and don't sound too good to me.
Most music these days just sounds like everything else in it's genre and I don't care for much of it. This album broke the seams, blurred the edges and made it hard to classify. It's a jazzy, bluesy, (I think I read country but I don't know about that, although I agree that the guitar is influenced by early country artists), soul-filled expose of what a group of musicians can accomplish when they don't worry about what others are doing and just set out to make a good album.
The mix of songs is perfect and Norah's vocals are entrancing, they just suck you in.
I said "Listen with headphones" and here is why; the intricate musicianship on this album is amazing, the slight bend of a guitar string, the tap of a pedal, the back beat on a soft cymbal, all of this adds to the sultry, smooth sound that encapsulates this album.
I can't pick 1 or 2 good songs; the whole album is absolutely fantastic. An experiment in musical restraint, they use just enough of the instruments, the vocals, they never go overboard. I think that is the true treat in this album; the thunderous minimalism.
A great album and deserving of all the attention it has received.Read full review

This SACD is good but the regular (redbook) CD of this same album is so good that I couldn't hear an improved sound that I was sure of from the SACD.

Norah Jones - Come Away with Me
Very soothing to listen to. The material extremely enjoyable. Sometimes you buy an album liking one or two songs NOT THIS ONE - you will find yourself enjoying it all.
The purchase of this album was an upgrade from the regular CD AND just I purchased a copy for my Doctor.
