5.0 out of 5 stars Back to the scene of crime - and commit it even better!, 8 Sept. 2009
This review is from: Pyromania (Deluxe Edition) (Audio CD)
Pyromania was a tough choice for a heavy metal fan like me in the beginning of the 80's. NWOBHM was big then. I loved the first Def Lep LP. The second was OK, but quite, eh, commercial, and then, in the 1983, came thrash and speed metal... It was a crime to admit that Pyromania was actually brilliant; catchy, but very powerfull. Well, those drums sounded like 100% plastic.

On this remastered version the drums still sound like plastic, but after all, this isn't a remixed version. Remastering is excellent: clear, energetic, wide range of dynamics and no digital distortion at all, loudness war is forgotten here. This sounds million times better than the old CD version, although I still think Japanese vinyl LP has the best sound of them all.

The gem - or the other gem - in this Deluxe Edition is the second CD, a live concert recorded in '83. The band is red, hot and kickin'. Wonderful sound quality and what a set list! Material is from their first 3 albums plus a CCR cover with Brian May as a guest guitarist.

A fantastic package.
