If this reissue is supposed to be a representative sample of Kevin Reeves’s mastering skills, then this “engineer” should be fired immediately and never be given a (re)mastering job again.
It sounds really that bad.

Avoid this CD version by all means unless you’re desperately looking for the bonus tracks.
What a shame, given how great the music and Gloria’s voice actually is.
