I was really looking forward to this, as arguably it was one of Duran Duran's best albums and to have it released with a bonus disc and remastered....what a deal! I have a top end stereo, Musical Fidelity Amp and Cambridge Audio CD player and can't say how disappointed I am with the sound quality. I am really not sure what type of digital remastering has happened here, if any? As with a lot of the early 80's music that was directly transferred to CD, it sounds hollow and lacking in bass. Simon's vocals sound weak and underplayed. This is a real shame as this was a great opportunity for someone to have come in and really done a good job on reproducing this, instead it sounds as if minimum or no effort has gone into this what so ever. Great original album, really poor production and sound quality.
