This is a remaster...,
This review is from: Selected Ambient Works 85-92 (Audio CD)
None of the other reviews have mentioned that this is a remaster - The original album was renowned for the fact that the production was a little ropey - I think this is probably a misunderstanding on the part of audiophiles who reviewed it at the time. The way the album was produced was an essential element of the record - the naturally distorting bass on 'we are the music makers' and 'ageispolis' and the massive bass heavy mix on many of the other tunes.
This new release is a lot louder, brighter and much more detailed in the mids and highs. Some hardcore aphex fans might prefer the mix of the original over this one. I personally prefer this one.

Hi Dan, thank you for the info about the remastering. I know it, some people don't. I am very cautious because 95% of all remasterd music is ONLY louder and not really remastered (example Prodigy CDs, Yello CDs). So, can you tell me is this CD really remastered or only louder?
Thank you for help.
