Great content but packaging is a not quite there...,
This review is from: Mask (Audio CD)
There is no way anyone could complain about the audio content of both of the Bauhaus deluxe packages and the recent The Cult package.The remastered sound is top shelf and the extras are a collector's dream.
The only point reason I haven't given this 5 stars is the packaging. It's a try-hard attempt to replicate a superb Japanese model. Mini-LP sleeves area wonderful idea but they need to be printed with real attention to detail and on top quality material. The Japanese are masters at this. This tries to copy that but the print quality is not quite there. The sleeves don't fold properly and are a bit flimsy. Inks are cheap and the overall finish leaves a lot to be desired. A wonderful idea from a design point of view which has been let down by mediocre production. If the Japanese do a version of this I'm sure they'll right all of the wrongs as they did with the recent Beatles box sets.
That aside, Bauhaus have never sounded better!
