1.0 out of 5 stars Ruined the mix!, 20 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Super Fly (Audio CD)
I compared this new edition to my original 1990 Ichiban/Curtom CD, and the original is WAY better! Charly took Rhino's horrible remaster for this. However, the second disc of rarities, single mixes and instrumentals is essential. So, hunt down the Ichiban pressing and dump Disc 1 of this set.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not remastered, 15 April 2013

This review is from: Original Album Classics (Audio CD)
Sadly, none of these albums were remastered. They sound just as bad as the original CD issues. You are much better off getting the BGO reissues which are remastered and have 2 albums on 1 CD. Then, get the brand new remaster of "Subtle." Save your money on this set.

5.0 out of 5 stars Let It Rock!, 4 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
All 50 tracks in 24-bit/96KhZ. You get to choose between PCM, Dolby or DTS for playback. They all sound amazing. And, you don't have to change discs! Yes, you need a Blu-ray player, but you already have one, don't you?

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm Plotzing!, 24 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Yes, this is a very expensive box set. But, it is worth every penny!!! Just the Blu-ray alone is worth the price of this set. All 4 operas in lossless (better than CD) quality, on 1 DISC!!!!! If you have a Blu-ray player, there's really no need to play the CDs, unless you want to take them in the car or burn to your iPod. The books that come with this set are remarkable. You also get "The Golden Ring" DVD, a CD of Wagner overtures and "Siegfried Idyll" with Solti and the Vienna. Look, just get this thing, ok?

4.0 out of 5 stars Sounds fine to me, 18 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Love [Deluxe Edition] (Audio CD)
This album has most definitely been remastered. It sounds WAY better than the original U.S. CD which is LONG out of print. Totally worth the money, and I'm not all that concerned about the remixes.

5.0 out of 5 stars What is your problem?, 18 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
SOrry, but this Edsel remaster sounds amazing. It's WAY better than the orignal US CD issue. The "digital glitch" you refer to in the "Oblivious" 12" mix is on the original master! I have the import and domestic 12" vinyl releases and it's on both of them, so stop whining! All of these Aztec Camera remasters are exellent and it's great to have them all in one place.

1.0 out of 5 stars waste of money, 14 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: My Generation (Audio CD)
This is merely a repackaging of the 2002 "deluxe edition" without the fancy slipcover, and minus a few tracks. Don't waste your money.

This review is from: Lixiviation: 1969-1985 (Audio CD)
You can really hear where Steve Miller got his synthesizer sound for "Fly Like An Eagle." Clearly, someone turned him on to Suzanne's work, and that's obvious on this CD. Plus, she used a Buchla instead of a Moog, which everyone was using at the time. Very interesting work.

3.0 out of 5 stars Muffled, 15 April 2010

Is it me, or does this CD sound muffled? The 2008 Rhino reissue is much louder and punchier. This one sounds like someone threw a blanket over the music. Returning this one.
