1.0 out of 5 stars Bad sound, 28 April 2013
First of all to make one point clear: this is my McCartney album ever! I love this album extremely.
As a big fan, I have of course the first Uk pressing (mint) and the first Japanese version on red vinyl.
So I am entitled to say something for the new 2012 version. I played the record yesterday and I was really upset.
This does not sound like the original album. It missed the sharpness and brightness of the original vinyl mix.
It sound flat and boring, much too soft. It reminded me of the remixes Yoko did on John's legacy. Lucky for us, they did it all over and better!!

The album of course still remains Paul's best for me. But this mix truly fails, I am sorry.

The good things about this box are: beautiful artwork however not accordingly to the original artwork, two extra cd's with a lot of remixes other mixes etc.
The truly bad thing about this box are the masters they used. I bought it yesterday and played several albums. Siren is a complete disaster and sounds truly awful.I checked this version with the latest Japanese mini lp remaster; this so called new remaster does not even come close to the Japanese one.
Yes, I bought them. Roxy is MY band and they will ever be. I paid 50 euro's for the box and for me, that's just for the extra cd's and the artwork (although not complete or correct).
My advise to the record company is… Read more

2.0 out of 5 stars What a fault!!!!, 16 Oct 2010
Please bear with me, I am a huge DB fan for almost 40 years. I grew up with Ziggy and this went forward to The Thin White Duke. But what it all fantastic was the moment that the (heavily) bootleg of the Nassau show was released as A Taste Display on splash vinyl. What a show, what a great sound and what a truly magnificent version of Panic in Detroit, almost 11 minutes long and the sheer excitement of the fans at the end of this number. Okay that was history. Now were looking at is said to be the Ultimate STS experience. The revival of the Analogue version of the album is amazing but as a long time DB it's not a huge biggy. No the real excitement is of course for the Nassau show. It seems… Read more
