  • Edgar says:

    Sadly, not even the Pope can help DG recover its lost fortunes. No prayer will bring back a vision and esthetic that was long ago mismanaged and discarded by a corporate culture dictated by cretins.

    • Holger H. says:

      Actually prayers and meditative reflection might be the way to bring DGG back on track and let them find artistic meaning and sonic excellence again. Think about prayers as the opposite of management consulting a la McKinsey, and they can only win if they pray.

  • David Boxwell says:

    The new Max Richter was a bonus gift.
