I recommend this LP with great enthusiasm.
I disagree with reviews stating that the remastering is flawed. (guitars to quiet and thin etc...)

Being a long time fan of this album and having owned and loved it on cassette, cd, and now this MFSL remastered LP I can say that the remastering is very good. Not only the sound but the quality of the package, vinyl, sleeve. Money well spent in my opinion.

There are people writing reviews who feel the guitar track has been quietened too much and sounds thin. Addressing this issue I can only state the obvious, that FNM were never a guitar driven band. Their excellence is in the overall feel of their songs. Not only that but when I listen to this remastering I can hear the guitar track well and if anything the overall sound of all the instruments have been balanced nicely.

The sound is excellent. This will surely please anyone not dreaming of having heavier guitar tones as a focus in the remastering.

Bloody brilliant. Get it, spin it, love it.

This is regarding the 2008 Remaster on vinyl:

I'm a little bit disappointed and not just in the areas I expected. First of all, the remaster is not great. The guitars are thin and are noticeably quieter and the vocals are up way too much. Pitch is also increased, negatively affecting the dynamic of the album. However the album sounds a lot cleaner and a lot what was wrong with the originals muddy production has been addressed. I thought the latter would be a good thing but I'm afraid it's execution here is not great.

I've listened to the CD version of this mix and the same is true.

Though I'm happy with the quality of the vinyl itself, the fact that this mix has been committed and not the original (which was not great to begin with) is a gripe which I knew I'd have after hearing the above problems through CD first.

The packaging is average. They could have taken a leaf out of Sony's book and taken a good look at how albums like Pearl Jam's Binaural and Manic Street Preacher's Lifeblood have been assembled with beautiful glossy artwork a decent booklet with a bit of effort would have been the least you'd expect at this price point.

The artwork within the gatefold is a shockingly poor montage of the stills from the original album. These stills themselves not being the issue, just the crappy arrangement and stretched images which have lost their definition. Album specific liner notes would have been appreciated, and a little bio of the album would have been appreciated but instead we get gatefold adverts for Mobile Fidelity. Would it have been too much to ask to get the first verse of Jizzlobber included in the lyrics after the initial 1992 cock up has gone unaddressed yet again.

If you like the new mix, this pressing is fanstastic - flawless even. As I prefer the original mix - which is not what I expected since I've been campaigning for a remaster for the last ten years - this version will find a lot of shelf time.

Though I rate Angel Dust a 5/5, this version I'd score 3/5.
