Oh yeah... oh yeah .... oh yeahhhhh!,
This review is from: The Beatles: The White Album (Audio CD)
Like many who cannot afford to buy the remastered box set in one go, I decided to try just my favourite album as a taster and see if the hype was justified. For me, that album was Revolver. "Hmmm" probably describes my initial reaction on hearing it. I so wanted it to sound incredible, to reveal new, previously hidden instruments and nuances, but it just didn't.
Not wanting to be disappointed so easily I decided to have one more try with The White Album and OH MY GOD!!! there it was. Everything I wanted the Revolver remaster to be. Crystal clear guitars and bass, punch to the percussion, passion in the vocals, an invitation to revisit an old and rather over familiar friend with renewed love.
I don't know why the remastering on The White Album sounds so much better than on Revolver. Possibly because in my opinion it never sounded too hot in the first place and therefore there was more scope for improvement. Will I go on and purchase the box set, probably not, but will I continue to try the albums one at a time. You bet!!!

Other options - play the original vinyl album, play the old cd louder, upgrade your hifi and remaster all your existing cds at the same time. How long before before EMI give us the new remastered remaster ? ! What's important is the brilliance of the beatles' music/songs

Oh, so the vocals in the original release are different, are they? It is the same passion in the vocals as the earlier copy of the album, DUH!!!!
