There's not a lot left to say about this seminal piece of music since it's release in '81 other than to say in 2007 it has stood the test of time admirably.
I will confine my comments to this particular release version. Is it worth buying all over again? Is the remastering any good? Are the extra tracks worthy of inclusion? Answer, a resounding Yes to all three. An added bonus for devotees is the inclusion of a track listing which allows the listener to sequence the tracks to recreate what the original LP would have sounded like if all the 'permissions' for vocal samples had been obtained before the release deadline was reached. A New life for 'My Life....'
