Tracks 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 have a channel out of phase, inverting either channel and song sounds normal again.
Tracks 1, 11, 12 have been compressed a lot.
Track 12 - Turbo Diesel has faster tempo around 133 BPM and sounds like a complete remix.

Stylistically, a diverse collection that exposes Albertone's versatility that I wasn't aware of. Along with the Italo disco classics like "Heart On Fire" you will find all the tracks (but one) from the "Everybody" album. Some of these, like "Broken Dreams", are on the funky side, while others ("Visions") have a determined house flavor. There is even an easy listening track - "Talk To Me"!
The mastering on this CD is rather uneven. Without doubt, the tracks from "Everybody" sound best, crisp and dynamic; while the earlier tracks seem somewhat muffled and overcompressed. In particular, played after "Don't Let Me Down", "Secrets" sounds almost as if someone covered the speakers with a pillow.
My other gripe is that his best songs are presented as shorter edits. And the unidentified remix of "Hopes & Dreams" with its tired sound and lackluster arrangements is an odd choice, given the majestic splendor of the original 12-incher.
