Choir is poorly mixed in Neodämmerung but in Navras it sounds fantastic

Do you also notice that in Neodämmerung, especially in the very beginning it's hard to enjoy the choir on its own, the sound is poorly mixed with the rest of the orchester and you can hardly hear the choir in all that noise of the brass and percussion. It doesn't sound that natural too. Maybe some people with 10K Hi-Fi can enjoy it more than me but I also have about 2K system and it really doesn't sound so good. On the other side, the choral passages in Lord Of The Rings or Episode 1 are great to listen. In Navras, the mix is a lot better, you can hear the choir in a wide range.
Don't you agree or is it just me?
