Screamin' for yer money back? maybe...but...
on 6 September 2012
..If like me you bought it for the dvd then you'll probably be happy.
If you bought it for the original music,you may feel short changed, the CD is the same as the previous remaster,no tinkering,no grand difference in sound,just the same 5 star music as before,the bonus tracks are ,well typical bonus tracks, the live tracks are average sound quality and the ,excellent though it is.'Prisoner of Your eyes' is still completely out of place tagged on at the end,the logic of sticking a track recorded in '85 on a disc recorded in '82,escapes me,it did the first time and it does now.So essentially you've bought the same disc with run of the mill live tracks.
The DVD which was my reason for purchase,well thats excellent,dated yes,of its time,you cant help smile at Rob's beach blonde hair and metal mickey outfit but the band rocks,its a stellar performance and worth the purchase price itself,although it does take a bit of getting used to Dave Hollands drumming again having spent the last few decades listening to Scott Travis.
Packaging .. well thats crap,pathetic liner notes a few photos,pretty much no band involvement,although that shouldnt really be a surprise as they had little involement in the remasters liner notes as well.
To sum up,i wanted the dvd so im happy with that , disc 1 will probably never get played,will stick with the original remaster without the live tracks,the record label have missed a real opportunity here,this should have been the same as the Deluxe Edition of 'British Steel',disc 1 should have stayed as it was,disc 2 the dvd and a 3rd disc the audio of the dvd,jus a thought. So if you want the dvd then go for it,if not you may want to reconsider.
