Great music, plenty of rarities but the sound quality (mastering) could be much better,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Naz Box (Audio CD)
Musically, this is a great set, no doubt about it. Any Nazareth fan needs to own this set.
I have to say though that I was disappointed a little bit about the sound quality. EQ wise, it is fine and nicely done, not too harsh and no boosted treble (like it is often the case on remasters). But the dynamic range has been heavily reduced, there is only about 7...8 dB dynamic range left (measured with TT Dynamic Range Meter), and it should be more in the 11...13 dB range. In other words, this box set sounds quite loud and the music doesn't have enough room to breathe. If you ever heard of the term "The Loudness War", this release is surely a victim of it.
Still, I recommend to get this release if you like the band.
