A definite improvement over the 30th Anniversary edition,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lizard: 40th Anniversary Series [CD + DVD-A] (Audio CD)
For those wondering whether there are any sonic differences between this release - the CD stereo remaster - and the 30th Anniversary edition, let me make it very clear that there is a marked improvement on this release over the one from 10 years ago; amongst other things you can hear Keith Tippett's brilliant piano more clearly as well as ALL other instruments. As another reviewer mentioned, the improvements are more noticeable on 'Lizard' than those on 'Red' or 'In the Court of the Crimson King'.
Unlike other remastered albums by other artists, here the quiet bits remain quiet, and the loud ones remain loud, ie this is not only aimed at the mp3 generation, though this new 'Lizard' converted to mp3 files sounds superb.
The extra tracks are also much appreciated, particularly, in my view, Lady of the Dancing Water.
Haven't had a chance to listen to the DVD-A yet, but if the stereo CD version is this good, then the DVD-A will possibly be even 'better'.
