2.0 out of 5 stars Warning !, 27 Nov 2004
This review is from: Animalisms And Bonus (Audio CD)
Animalisms is one of the really great albums of the sixties and was long overdue beeing released in cd format.
That's why it's such a pity that the otherwise excellent Repertoire label made such a mess of it. The sound, and I compare it back to back with the original version, is eq'd so it sounds like it was recorded in some bathroom plus that extra echo was added to the vocals. Perhaps the earlier cd release on Sequal records was better but I havn't succeded in getting a copy. So - beeing warned, get an original vinyl and besides the extra tracks can be found on other cds that has not been "improved" by some confused "engineer".

You're absolutely right - there's something wrong with the remastering on this. The one that really jumps out is 'Outcast' that seems to have had all the power taken out of it (I'm comparing it to the Sequal vinyl copy). The Animals best ever album (from any part of their history) deserves better.
