Fantastic album - abysmal remaster,
This review is from: Encore (Live) (Audio CD)
This is one of my favourite TD albums, along with Ricochet and Logos Live. I've grown up with this album, and know every nuance. Unfortunately the (well intentioned I'm sure) attempts to clean the album up have resulted in the life being strangled out of it. This album is characterised by a level of hiss/buzz which were on the master tapes. If you try and clean it up you take with it a lot of the power and dynamics. It's most evident on track 2 Monolight - it sounds totally wierd, the sound ebbs and flows like on a bad bootleg tape. Buy this album yes, but hunt down the original CD release - it's totally fantastic and a world better than this remaster.
