Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bloody Tourists (Audio CD)
Got this one because 2 or 3 tracks and particularly because it says "remastered".
But... sound is awful. Remastered job was poor.
It looks like the sound comes from a covered pot, muffled, treble's missing. Unpleasant.
If this is a remastered CD, well, I'd rather go with the old version.

It always did have lousy muffled sound. A result of 'over-production' (multi-takes and remixes.)

Absolutely agree with you. Just thought the newly "remastered" edition would sound better...

I own the Japanese Cardboard Sleeve (mini LP) SHM-CD of Bloody Tourists and would say it sounds amazing. Since I only are able to compare it to my old piece of vinyl I don't know how the remastered version sounds which is getting so poor comments here on http://amazon.co.uk.
Nevertheless, I believe it was a good investment because this wonderful album is worth listening to in best quality. And no matter what tapes the Japanese were using to burn this masterpiece of SHM-CD, they have done a fantastic job!

Search out the Mercury version from 1990, much better sound.

I have done as you suggested. That has worked out very very well!!
Granted I may not have the bonus track, but so what. I now have a copy I can listen
to without feeling seasick, and my newly acquired Marantz CD6005 makes the 1990 edition
sound fantastic. So that was a win-win.
