Proper Mastering At Last
on 13 February 2009
There are quite a few Cocteau Twins enthusiasts who have been disappointed by the CD releases. And justifiably so for those CDs sounded like they were mastered by someone who just didn't care. Enjoyable but not like the original vinyl.
I've done it myself. I've listened to the 'Echoes In a Shallow Bay/ Tiny Dynamine' CD release alongside the plush vinyl EPs and wondered what went wrong.
But here on 'Lullabies To Violaine - Volume 1' this problem has been set straight. These tracks now sound as wonderful as they were meant to be. Deep, resonant, evocative and masterful. Here at last we have 'Ribbed and Veined', 'Pink Orange Red' and 'Pepper Tree' in astonishing reality.
Ignore your turntable, you can forget the little pops and crackles on your precious vinyl. Get swept away.
You didn't think it would happen on CD but it has.
