A great, underrated chilis album and the re-mastering for this Vinyl edition is incredible.
on 31 December 2017
As a chilis fan back in 2006, I was eagerly anticipating this album and bought it straight away. I was disappointed. It felt like a slog to get through and nothing really stood out so I dismissed it as an overindulgent mess and something that should have been chopped down to 12 tracks.
I was wrong.
Over the years, I've kept going back to this, especially when looking for guitar playing inspiration, and the album really opened up to me. I can find great things about all the songs on this, not to mention some of the now stone cold classics like Snow and Dani California. There are 3 excellent musicians playing at their creative best on this album with a very charismatic lyricist imbuing the songs with his signature vocal style.
This is mastered from the analogue master tracks and completely remixed by Steve Hoffman. You will notice better separation between the instruments, more headroom in the dynamic range (your ears won't get tired) and it elevates this great album. The Chilis themselves back in 2006 urged their fans to buy the vinyl, not the CD. That says it all.
