2 CD (55.22 min each)
CD1: DTS 5.1 Music Disc
CD2:Stereo CD Version

Mono was nice...Stereo "High Fidelity" was sufficient for about 50 years...and there is time for an "Upgrade". DTS 5.1 Digital Surround Sound offers six channels and the atmospheric, deep and imaginative music of FAX starts to come alive like never before. FAX music is about deep and soulful imagination...we don't want to spoil the private inner journey of the listener. For this reason there will not be a DVD from FAX as this would not coincide with the label's philosophy. For compatibility reasons (to listen to the music in the car or at your friend's or if you don't own a DTS capable 5.1 Surround System) we included a Stereo CD version in the double CD-pack.

Virtual Vices V is a CD that contains some surprises...of course in the fashion of Ambient-Jazz-Rock fusion. This time Wolfram digs deeper into jazzy E-Piano and percussions, Pete rediscovered his Gibson Jazz Guitar from the 1950s and his daughter Fabia is singing.

Limited to 500 copies.

After more listening time, I'm thinking [...] VV5 is the best of the series so far. Maybe it doesn't have the best track of the series (or maybe it does!), but the album as a whole is much stronger than the slight mish-mash some of others are. A wonderful listen from beginning to end. Listening to track 2, I was just thinking how utterly, quintessentially classic fax it is. The Spyra is so Spyra-fax. The airy female voice, so Silence, et al. The PK DSotM-esque synths. The smooth PK guitar work. The flowing, morphing atmospheres. This is the most fax fax has been in a *long* while. It really brings it all together. To those holding out because of they don't care about DTS, or they don't like the price, you are really missing out. And I still haven't heard it in 5.1 yet!!!
