5.0 out of 5 stars Is There A Difference? 13 Jan 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
That's by far the best Howard Jones albums, and may be one of the best albums in 80s. No fillers in the album, all songs are gold or diamond. My favorite - less known songs - are "Is There A Difference?", "Elegy", "Specialty" and "Hunger For The Flesh" - they are not hit singles but they tell stories in unique and beautiful way. The re-mastering job is perfect; the CD package is modern with protective slipcase. A Job well done for sure.
The only thing missing from my point of view is some extra tracks - specially the re-recorded "No One Is to Blame" with Phil Collins - and one or two extended remix would be nice too. That could have made it perfect and complete CD. Never the less, I highly recommend this CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great remastering job 18 Sep 2013
Format:Audio CD
Amazing album and great remastering job. Right from the off, you can hear the beefed up bass and new clarity in the horn section. The funkier tracks such as `Automaton' and `Specialty' really benefit from the new mixes.

The songs stand the test of time well, a good tune is a good tune. It's so refreshing in pop these days to hear someone that can really play well and put together a few chord suspensions. The lyrics, often harshly scorned by critics back in the 80s, are just as relevant today.

My favourites are `Things Can Only Get Better' and `Why Look for the Key'. There's an added bonus of `Like To Get To Know You Well' and `Bounce Right Back'. If you liked the original as I did, you really should hear this.

This album is a masterpiece from the 80's and remastered to give the tracks todays cutting edge sound. Each track flows into the next effortlessly, Howard is a pure Genius of Synth Pop. A great album for anyone who is a fan of this kind of music.
