A Bad Think - Lifelike“Lifelike” is the latest album from the rock project “A Bad Think,” mixed in 5.1 Surround and Dolby Atmos by Bob Clearmountain, Dave Way, and Steve Genewick. Featuring Michael Marquart alongside talented collaborators including Jeremy Stacey, Fernando Perdomo, Sean Hurley, Kirk Hellie, among others. Following his Grammy nominated 2020 5.1 surround album “The Savior,” Marquart has returned with a more pop laden style that bends across genres.

Comprising of 13 songs, written and performed by Marquart, the album is available in 96kHz / 24-bit 5.1 surround FLAC as well as 48kHz / 24-bit Dolby Atmos encoded MP4 and MKV files, or on a Blu-ray disc containing the same formats. Created specifically with Dolby Atmos in mind, the goal was to take full advantage of a completely immersive listening experience. Bob Clearmountain handled the 5.1 surround mix, while Dave Way and Steve Genewick elevated the soundstage into the Dolby Atmos realm, swirling objects above the listener. Some fans have desired a bit more action from the back channels, but sonically have felt the recording is excellent, and enjoy the spatial aspects of both the surround and Atmos versions.

One can preview the album through streaming services, and then find the physical copies on the artist’ website or visit Immersive Audio Album for high resolution surround and Atmos download versions.

Released April 2, 2021.
