Paris Version.

FC CD and LP identical most natural balance. Wonderful detailed strings. Could use a little more low end and slight reduction in treble.

M&A slightly more colored than FC.

Immortal same as GS except that Immortal has slightly filtered highs. Total lack of detail in strings and brass on both. Slightly better dynamics than FC but may be due to more bass. Might be salvageable with EQ.

FM OK but nothing to recommend it over FC or GS.

GDS heavily filtered with some reverb.
