Inferior remastering of a superb album
on 10 June 2007
I love Magazine: have all the vinyl, saw them live, own all the previous CDs, all the compilations, all the 2007 remastered discs (Virgin EU pressings, not Caroline, which is the label they've been released on in the U.S.).
When comparing tracks on the 2007 remaster with those on the "Maybe It's Right To Be Nervous Now" box set released in 2000, the tracks on the box set are vastly superior to any other release, and are closest to the original vinyl releases. The 2007 tracks sound muffled. One has to wonder what the heck happened.
Suffice to say, this album is 5 stars, but the remastering drags it down to 3. If you own the box set, keep it, and don't be duped into buying the 2007 remasters.
