Superb 4AD Sounds
on 20 September 2015
I have finally had a chance to sit quietly and return to these wonderful recordings all re-mastered without any additions or extra 5.1 stuff.
Although I find the originals very good from a sound point of view these are exceptional, well being 4AD what would you expect. Sound systems have improved over the years so now all is revealed in its majestic beauty.
These three recordings are some of the best from the period and I include the immortal Cocteau Twins in this group. Coming from a “So Called Progressive Rock” background with King Crimson being an all time inspiration, I find the music in these takes us to a new level and I believe inspired many of the new “alternative” bands from the 90’s on.
To go into individual tracks is rather pointless as they all are part of the one! I will say however to actually sit and listen in one sitting to each CD in turn is “just a delightful experience”.
Thank you Ivo and John for your imagination!
