1.0 out of 5 stars Good album, lousy reissue..., 28 Sept. 2012
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Love [Deluxe Edition] (Audio CD)
I'm only writing this to bring the rating down and to alert people to Edsel/Demon's shoddy reissue policy. It's a shame that casual fans may get the impression the music per se is bad but there doesn't seem to be an alternative. Please see Eric Generic's more detailed review/comments for more information.

Anyone who wants this album should stick to the original, as it's an excellent record (easily a 4/5) and, as we know, doesn't sound much different if at all. So they messed up Dreamland as well, huh; I'm glad I bailed out on this reissue series after the first two!

It's certainly a good one, although like many, I have a problem with the production/mastering (is there any other "US album" by a UK act from that era that sounds as rigid and rotten as "Love"? I'm thinking Scritti Politti, Hue & Cry, EBTG... Apparently Frame's voice was pitched to render him more youthful, similar to Madonna on "Like A Virgin".) I was hoping a decent remaster could improve on some of the technical issues. I also think "One On One" and "Everybody's Got A Number One" are terrible songs that should have been left off. Excepting those, I reckon Frame never wrote better songs and that especially the middle eights (7 out of 9 tracks have them as opposed to only 2 out of 10 on "Dreamland") are his best by a long shot (Frame mentions this in the liner notes too). Anyway, just my two cents... :)
