One of the great joys of the original POTC was the massive space and clarity. This CD has none of that airy atmosphere. What a shame - tantamount to fraud in my estimation. Apart from that, if you want a cool beer mat, this is the disc for you. Of course you'll have to fill the hole then, so maybe not. Just to clarify, my review relates to the Legends of Rock collector's edition 'remastered' release of this album - not to the music of Wang Chung or Points on the Curve - which is wonderful.
The sound quality on this is absolutely horrendous i had to turn my volume right down as my speakers were about to blow with the booming come from them. The track listing on the CD doesn't match the one on the sleeve either as you are led to believe they have used the original masters when in fact it sounds as if they have just used the CD in some audio editing software and just cranked the volume up. The only positive i can say about it is the sleeve but that's it.
