Leaving aside the butchery of the original which others have covered, this album re-release follows the current trend by record companies in simply making the album louder. Louder is better right? No, the opposite actually. It's true that the louder you play a decently balanced recording it seems fuller, wider soundstage, more detail etc etc. But by boosting the loudness of the recording while you may fool many of the iTunes generation into believing the sound quality is better, on a decent equipment you lose the full dynamic range of the original, peaks are clipped off, the whole thing is flatter.
