2.0 out of 5 stars diamond in dung, 28 Sep 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Safe As Milk (Audio CD)
This Remastering was a severe letdown. I already had a copy of Safe As Milk dating from the Nineties, and thought perhaps the sound of a new edition would reveal untapped nuances. How wrong I was. The somewhat muddy sound of the original is in now way improved; in fact, the sublime, manic ambience which at least is conveyed on that disc is here gone entirely--ruined by a too fussy excercise in "cleaning-up". The crime is all the more unforgivable as the whole thing seems to have been overseen by members of The Teenage Fanclub, supposed pop afficianados.
Don't waste your money on this unnecessary tinkering. Search out one of the earlier imprints instead.

Would definitely think more than twice before buying the re-mastered version. Thanks.
