4.0 out of 5 stars Thunder and Lightning gets deluxe treatment, 25 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Thunder And Lightning (Audio CD)
This was never my favorite Lizzy album and Sykes' playing style really hasn't aged well. However the sound quality of this remastered cd is a clear improvement to earlier CDs. The bonus demos don't really ad much to the final versions and they have all circulated on Youtube and among collectors for years. The live tracks are B-sides and the extra 12" that came with the original LP. The all feature Snowy White on guitar. A shame though that the "Still in Love with You" live B-side of the "Thunder and Lightning" single has been ignored (It's different from the version on Life) and the "Sun Goes Down" single remix ought to have been included as well.

Sorry, but for me the sound quality of this version is no improvement - it's cold and flat compared to the first version I got on CD. The sound quality of the album was muddy from day one on - but this one is even worse. It has shrill high mid's, that make the guitars sound thin and harsh and the lack of the right bass frequencies hide the bass git of Phil even more than before. I received two other Lizzy remasters today, and they are totally different. While "Jonny The Fox" is a mind-blowing improvement, the "Jailbreak" and "Renegade" versions sound much worse to me than the first CD versions I have. Have you compared them, Peter? I'd really like another opinion, cause I'm quite shocked...
