I was quite excited by seeing the 2008 Remaster version of Destiny, as it holds a selection of classic Jacksons tracks not readily available elsewhere in recent mix quality (Things I Do For You, Bless His Soul, Shake Your Body (full length version)).
Upon listening to this, I immediately noticed that the mix was unusually low and dull compared to the recent 2001 Remasters of Michael Jacksons solo releases (which have excellent sound). Upon looking it and comparing the files of the new release to my old CD version of Destiny, it soon got quite apparant that this is in fact not a Remaster but simply a re-release of the exact same mixes, with the only difference being that the volume is nudged slightly up and a couple of remixes are added (those are not 12" mixes btw., but Disco mixes).
I must admit I'm sorely dissapointed with this and feal greatly cheated by this re-issue which is promoted by Amazon to be a Remaster - and although this is not explicitely stated on the package (which is simply labeled as 30 Anniversary edition) it seems like a very concious strategy by the record company in the light of all the recent re-masters of the Jackson solo catalogue.
Destiny is of course still a good record, but if you have the old CD version, there's absolutely no need to host up the extra bucks to get this new version unless you're just dying to get those remixes.
