If you ever wondered what this glorious album sounded like “benefitting” from the full throes of the Loudness War, this is the test pressing to get. It’s as awful as you’d imagine. I was in the loop when Bernard, Hooky and Steve categorically rejected this (and a similar Closer remaster test press) outright on first listen. Even Warners went “errrr, no”.
