I would give it five stars but...
on 9 November 2010
Make no mistake, these releases are sublime, gorgeous and essential. I'm even basing a small portion of my PhD on them! I would easily give them five stars but...
The remastering in this value set has ruined some of the preciousness in the tracks, to the point where the subtle aesthetics have been blasted away. Unfortunately this is particularly noticeable on the Konigsforst CD where Untitled 5 - probably the most revered track in the entire canon has been distorted out of existence.
This is a massive shame. The set looks like excellent value for money, but please search out second hand copies of Konigsforst and compare on headphones especially. This might seem pedantic, but these pieces are all about precise tonal colours and precision.
Massively disappointing, especially as the originals are hard to track down now.
