2.0 out of 5 stars This referes to the 2004 Remastered Version, 11 May 2013
This review is from: Heaven Or Las Vegas (Audio CD)
Unfortunately Amazon does not respect the different Version of this album and summarizes everything under just the name.
But this so called Remastered Version is an insult to any audiophile with a decent HiFi set-up. The Loudness has wiped out any musicality and differentiation. Now everything a mash to the point that even the voice sounds shrill. It is headache inducing.
Please, dear Music industry, spare us the Loudness BS.

In the comment find the shocking numbers to loudness.

Thanks for saving me from a mistake... I've LOVED this album since it came out - Top 5, probably Top 3, ever (and I'm 50...), and thought maybe getting a hold of the "remastered" version would help me find the meaning in Liz's joyous - but heretofore murky - lyrics. Seems not, so my imagination will just have to continue to interpret for the romantic in me...

Someday, someone should make a 5.1 mix of this. Steven Wilson, we need your help!

Couldn't agree more with this review. The remaster sounds poor through headphones and made my ears hurt. It is probably the worst offender of the Cocteau Twins remasters - the bass sounds very bloated.

If you are thinking of upgrading your originals, I would advise you to save your money. The original recordings are no sonic marvels, but they are preferable over the remasters.

Thanks Oliver: I too have been saved from needlessly splashing out on replacing my original CD. It's a shame: it really is a classic album - and deserves better than this. As Paul (above) comments, a Stephen Wilson mix would be most welcome (even without the 5.1 treatment).
