It's all about the music, dude! Sit down, relax and listen to some tunes.

My Poor Wallet: Copland's Symphony #3 w/Slatkin and the Detroit Released

Likely very good sound, based on my experience with their Rachmaninoff Symphony 3 and most recordings from Detroit.

As for the Symphony, I imprinted on Bernstein's DGG NYPO recording, and I've had a hard time forgetting it. In a nutshell, no other performance I've heard keeps the white-hot, weighty energy going right through to the last note of the 4th movt.

I've rarely been disappointed by Slatkin, though I've rarely been knocked out of my chair by the conductor, either. He's sensible, sensitive, not ashamed of percussion and bombast, and doesn't bend music into absurd shapes in order to "hear it anew." At the same time, he never quite lets go; the music he conducts takes flight, but don't expect loop de loops.

We'll see. I hope a Barber cycle from these forces is up next.
