Those 2010 Remasters strike again!
on 15 February 2016
What a shame somebody decided to use the horrific 2010 remaster for this vinyl edition. Instead of warm sounding, dynamic and punchy reproduction what we have here is nasty clinical, digital noise and a completely pointless waste of vinyl. Basically this is a rubbish sounding CD pressed on vinyl. Why bother. I already have the rubbish remaster, why would I want an even worse version of it. This kind of release proves how ridiculous modern vinyl has become. It's very similar to the early days of CD when the labels used poor analogue masters on a digital format. The tables have turned and the labels are now using poor digital masters on an analogue format just to take advantage of this new generation of trendies who think vinyl is cool but don't actually understand anything about the format whatsoever and why it can sound so pleasing. Done properly, vinyl sounds superb and digital masters are not a problem as long as they are re-engineered for the vinyl medium. Sticking dynamically compressed, treble enhanced, loudness boosted trash designed for poxy earbuds and mobile phone speakers on to vinyl shows the contempt the music industry has and also how gullible people are.
Great album but don't buy this version.
