4.0 out of 5 stars Missing one for the packaging, 6 Aug 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fables Of The Reconstruction (Audio CD)
Still a great album- among their best. I can't say the remaster has made quite as much of a difference as it did to Reckoning and Murmur, although Stipe's vocals do seem fractionally clearer. I also agree with the other reviewers in that the liner notes really don't do the album justice.
The second disc of demos is an interesting curiosity- basically a stripped down version of the album with a few extras. It probably won't spend a vast amount of time on my stereo but is quite fun and worth having. Maybe more so than Reckoning's live performance.
My only major complaint is the naff packaging. I like the deluxe edition packages. This is just a clumsy oversize box full of junk. The CD's themselves are held by slip-in paper sleeves which guarantees scuffs eventually. As for the poster and postcards? I'm pretty sure most of the people buying this are out of the hero-worshipping teen phase by now. Entirely pointless and badly misjudged.
This is pretty expensive- more so than previous reissues. It is worth a go though, purely down to the sheer quality of the music. Just please take Boyzone's marketing team off the next project.
