Well along comes Chrysalis in April 2016 and offers up a cheaper alternative - a fully-loaded 'Adapted Version' of that Super Deluxe 'Collector's Edition' Box set – this time with 2CDs and 2DVDs clipped inside a beautifully packaged 80-page Book Pack. It's the same Remastering from 2011 but 'newly' handled in 2016 'only' by Steve Wilson with some multitrack transfers by KRIS BURTON. The Audio is fabulous - it's packaged better and at under a twenty-spot - priced to sell. Here are the snots running down my nose...

Anyway, I won't comment on the material (what could I add that hasn't already been expressed - and probably better too?) This review is just a comment about this Steven Wilson remixed version. Simply put he has made a stunning job of it. The sound is bigger, warmer with added detail that really brings out the nuances of the instrumentation. In fact at times it is a revelation: I am hearing new sounds hitherto buried in the mix. And yet, thankfully, this is far from as radical as it may sound as the whole enterprise has been clearly done with the skill and love of someone who clearly wants to remain as sympathetic to the source material as possible. In short this sounds just the same as the album you already love - just so much better (and - according to Ian Anderson - like the album was supposed to sound like originally were it not for the technical and recording difficulties the band experienced while recording it).
In conclusion, if you have any other version of this seminal album (perhaps other than on vinyl) don't hesitate and buy with confidence: you're in for an aural treat.
This is one of the great Prog Rock albums that deserves special treatment, which brings us nicely to the product. I've got quite a few of these Steven Wilson re-mixes with 5.1 surround sound, and I've been impressed with all of them, this one is no different. DVD 1 has the album and seven of the associated 70/71 recordings in 5.1 plus a further 3 of the associated recordings in LPCM stereo. Like the other 5.1 re-mixes Mr Wilson has done, this sounds mightily impressive, as I've said before is there any better music for 5.Read more ›
