Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
First things first - the idea that The Blue Nile's 3rd album "Peace At Last" 'needs' to be remastered was to me ridiculous. I bought the original CD on Warner Brothers 9362-45848-2 in June 1996 - the day it came out - and it was (and still is) a beautifully crafted and produced album. So it was with a healthy amount of scepticism that I plopped Disc 1 into my snazzy Marantz this afternoon...

Well take me sideways with a can-opener from Mars - but they've only gone and done it again. Because like "A Walk Across The Rooftops" and the sublime "Hats" that were both remastered in 2012 - this is truly gorgeous return to the original tapes. There's undeniable sonic improvement on every track - especially in the background instrumentation. Here are the poets and typewriters...

UK released Monday 3 March 2014 - "Peace At Last DELUXE SET" is a 2CD reissue on Virgin/Linn/Universal LKHCDR 3 (Barcode 0602537618071). Disc 1 is 44:56 minutes (3 seconds longer than the original issue) while Disc 2 offers up 6 New Outtakes (29:42 minutes). Original band members ROBERT BELL and PAUL BUCHANAN in conjunction with their long-standing Engineer CALUM MALCOLM have remastered the lot.

The 16-page booklet housed within a foldout card digipak retains none of the original artwork (excepting the cover) and there's nothing on any of the inner flaps. It's massively disappointing and feels utterly superfluous to requirements. There's a title page - one page of bare-knuckle credits - followed by 15 pages of photos of the band sat in the studio or the steps of some building somewhere - none of which advance your knowledge of the album one jot. There's no liner notes - no personal explanations or insights - no lyrics - it's rubbish frankly.

This album is nothing like Hats or Walk Across The Rooftops. Those albums were beautiful and sad but this one is uplifting, Church on Sunday music. If you haven’t heard The Blue Nile then you’re in for a treat but be prepared for Paul Buchanan’s heartbreaking vocals. You could argue this album isn’t as good as the last two but when the group spend seven years on a record then you really have to give the music time to grow on you. This album shows another side of The Blue Nile equally fantastic and lovingly made. This band is something very special and all their albums worth buying.

This is a wonderfully mellow experience altogether! The opening number "Happiness" is one of those songs that immediately chills you out and takes you somewhere a whole lot calmer. Acoustic and rhythm guitars are prominent during the stronger first half and drive some great tunes, "Love Came Down" and "Body and Soul" being standouts. The second half is perhaps a little too wondering, but nothing ever outstays its welcome. As for those awaiting Blue Nile's fourth album, they should meanwhile check out band member Nigel Thomas's "Quiet City - Public Face, Private Face", a very impressive debut that features involvement from most of Nile's other members

Oh dear. Waiting for my 'Peace At Last' Remaster to arrive in the mail I read the reviews posted on Amazon mentioning distortion on 'Family Life'. I hoped it was a CD pressing error and not source material related.

The CD arrived, I put my headphones on and began at the beginning and was more than happy with 'Happiness.' The mastering seems to have a diligently applied greater amount of compression adding thickness, warmth and improved cohesion of the sound and an overall less brittle sound without being overly loud and mushy.

Then, I jumped to Track 7 'Family Life' and what a shame it is to hear the distorted moments others have written about. I, for the life of me, cannot understand what has happened. Has the master tape been damaged or oxidized and not baked properly before transferring to digital? Having read interviews with the band over the years covering the care Calum Malcolm took as engineer for recording the band's albums I would be astounded, as he has personally remastered this album with Robert Bell and Paul Buchanan, that these imperfections have made it through to the final product. If the tape was irreparably damaged you'd think an explanation on the sleeve would be warranted.

Ultimately, a 2014 remaster of a 1996 recording should use the intervening 18 years of technological advance and skill development to produce a marked improvement on the sound of the original album release and that simply isn't evident here.

'Peace At Last' has always been my least favorite Blue Nile album, with a touch too much religious imagery and lyrical content for my taste, but I have never really let that prevent me from enjoying the many beautiful, moving moments on it.

First off let me state that I am a massive fan of the Blue Nile but I'm left feeling a little let down with this recent purchase.Now it is possible that I have a defective cd but I would have thought not considering the problem seems to be at high energy points and only on one track (my favourite mores the pity) . I Cant believe that they made a mess of family life's remaster, my copy distorts at the loud vocal parts just about 2 mins in. I'm an audio engineer to trade and I am flabbergasted that no one spotted the over heating and digital distortion in the middle of this track. I'm listening to to it through a D-Command Pro tools desk playing on big Genelec 1031A's speakers so it should be crystal clear, thought it was maybe a problem with the desk or the Marantz cd player so tried it on a small boom box that I have in the studio and my car stereo and the exact same happened... Really surprised and disappointed... Rest of the album seems fine tho. Might just be a dodgy copy of the cd, does anyone else have the same problem?
