2.0 out of 5 stars Superlative album - poor remaster, 14 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Copper Blue [Deluxe Version] (Audio CD)
Unquestionably a classic album. I bought the cd when it was first released, and it's still thrilling to listen to!

As for the remastered 'deluxe' version - I bought it in anticipation that it would sound even better, however having compared the original and the remaster through hi-fi and speakers, to my ears, it sounds like another victim of 'loudness wars'. The remaster's dynamic range sounds compressed, so too the width and depth of the 'sound stage'. Some of the high frequencies sound as though they've been brought up in the mix to give an initial, and false, impression of clarity and 'freshness' but in reality at the expense of definition of the other instruments and vocals.

Some recent remasters of other artists' classic albums have been excellent, true and well worth paying out for again, but unfortunately not this one. If you've got the original cd, stick with it and just turn the volume up a bit!
