The Final CD/DVD Edition ~ Wham!

Once again the mastering of a re-issue has been done by amateurs.
First of all the tracklisting is different from the original CD.
A few extended mixes have been replaced by poor sounding edits.
Second big problem is the fact that no one took the time to check the
loudness and colour of the different tracks.
It's bad enough to use the original CD as master without any equalizing
(so you get the typical mid-80's digital sound), but everytime you get
a "replacement" track (like Bad Boys or Careless Whispers), the level drops by a few db's.
Bad Boys for example sounds really bad.
So my advice : DON't BUY THIS

Excellent album. Unfortunately nothing has been done
to improve the original sound.
No remastering, no bonus tracks and even worse, there's a mastering error
between tracks 1 & 2. There's an annoying 2 sec. gap when there should have been
a smooth transition. This makes for a very amateuristic release.
