Simple Minds Sound Better Than Ever!, 24 July 2003
Here is an offer to good to refuse: take one of the biggest bands of the 80's with hits such as 'Don't You Forget About Me' and 'Alive & Kicking', go through their amazing back-catalogue spanning two decades and remaster their hits for release on both CD and SACD, put both versions on the one title over two CD's and throw in a Super Audio CD layer just for sweetners.
I've just listened to all 32 tracks from 'The Best of Simple Minds' on my Super Audio CD player and are amazed how good this band now sounds. It's Breakfast Club all over again in my living room. The remastering of these songs was much needed but now all the hits polish up perfectly. For a 2-CD/SACD set including 32 hits from over 10 albums you really cannot go wrong.
Now just waiting for Spandau Ballet & Tears for Fears to be remastered on SACD and I'll be in 80's heaven!
