4.0 out of 5 stars Remade-Remodelled and sounding better than ever., 2 Aug. 2007
By 
This review is from: Roxy Music (Audio CD)
You can read loads of thoughts about this iconic album in the other reviews. Over 35 years later, the innovative mixture of textures and song constructs still makes this album stand apart. The new insertion of Virginia Plain as Track 4, where it featured on the original US version of the album, does jar the familiarity, but overall it is a welcome addition. The addition of the B-side, 'The Numberer' would have been nice too - maybe next time please?

What you need to know that the other reviews don't mention is the much improved sound quality on this CD compared to the original LP. I don't know what it was about the original LP, (the cut, the production, the engineering, the studio?) but it always sounded sonically thin to me, as though it had been recorded in a cardboard box. I note that King Crimson's Larks Tongue in Aspic was also recorded at the Command Studios in London and that sounded muffled to me too. No wonder perhaps, that the studio, which was rumoured to have a number of technical faults, closed down a year later. Anyway, within the likely limitations of the original tapes, this remaster is much improved and polishes this diamond very nicely.
