5.0 out of 5 stars I feel sorry for anyone who doesn't think this is the best remaster ever, 1 Dec. 2011

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Graceland (Audio CD)
I have confined my original artificial sounding antique to the loft.

From the explosive opening drums to the beautiful mids and tight powerful bass throughout, this is a treat.

Instruments whether guitars, wind, bass or drums all sound better with and greater separation.

Similarly the vocal only intro to Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes sounds like you are there with singers - and then when those drums come in. This is demo material!

I would bet that the engineers, blessed with good ears and matching equipment, were mighty pleased with the remastering.

Many remasters leave me yearning for an SACD release but this remaster seems to transcend the limits of CD.

I am delighted with this issue. I can now enjoy the music rather than a merely sounds.

Have to agree with you - so many bad comments about the re-mastering from people who feel that an unclear and somewhat 'dull' sound to an album is the way it is "meant to be heard". No, you're actually meant to be hearing everything thats going on, all the finer details that could not be brought out in the original release. This is a good remaster and one which has sonically enhanced the quality of the original album - bravo!
