3.0 out of 5 stars The Music is a 5...., 14 Mar. 2011
This review is from: Quit Dreaming (And Get On The Beam) (Audio CD)
Just a short comment from me. The music on this CD is a five. Everything from the original album tracks to the bonus material really is top-notch Bill Nelson from his guitar hero days. This album should have been the second Red Noise record (other than a label disagreement) and as such it would have been worthy (though it's not quite as good as Sound on Sound).

It is also a pleasure to see Do You Dream in Colour returned to the track order. I bought the original CD release of this one, and it had been left off for some inexplicable reason.

Okay - so why only 3 stars then? I mean, the music is good, the booklet is good - with a nice long article including quotes from Bill himself. There are extra songs that fit the mood of the CD, what could go wrong?

I'll tell you - this CD sounds really really WEEDY. Since they claim it's been "digitally remastered" I was expecting something over that original CD release - but no. There is virtually no bass on this CD. The original CD sounded a little weedy too, so perhaps it was a problem with the original masters - maybe Bill didn't want a bass to be heard. I don't know - but whatever the reason, it spoil an otherwise great disc.

Listening to this I'd liken it to a great party, where the people are having a good time, the booze is flowing, and the dancing has started - only to have flourescent lighting switched on half way through. Everything is bleeched out and screechy.

No-one else has mentioned this, which is a surprise. I have over 2000 music CD's, so I'm confident it isn't my setup. Pity.
