One of the worst sounding records in my collection: pinched, flat soundstage; no air or dynamics; vocals sound thin. The 2001 Further Listening CD reissue sounds far superior. It would seem that no special mastering was applied to render the master appropriate for vinyl.

As others have commented, there is also a LOT of minutes crammed onto a single piece of wax (but I haven't had the sibilance issues with an AT 750SH cart performing tracking duties) which hardly helps matters. This would also be true of the original pressing.

Disappointing.

not as good as their earlier albums from 1986-1993 but this double cd was also good !!

A question: Does the songs on this vinyl sound a bit to fast?

Pumped to finally have this on wax. Agree with these posts—lots of sibilance on the re-issue, on side A, "Se A Vida È", "It Always Comes As A Surprise". On the flipside, you can hear it on the last two tracks a bit too. I know it's annoying when an album is spread accross 2 12"s, but this would have sounded a lot better as a double pack, especially considering half of these are club tracks.

The record sounds good, but there is some sssevere sssibilance on It Always Comes as a Surprise, one of their best songs. I can tame the sibilance a little by lowering the 8 kHz on my EQ. That helps.

The cover and inner sleeves look excellent. But man am I having audio issues. Most of the songs sound great! However, the last 2 songs of side A sound horrible. Wayyyy to much sibilance to my ears and it does it constantly. I have tried it with 2 different cartridges and they both have sibilance. Overall, not a bad pressing, but those songs have way too much sibilance!

These vinyl reissues sound excellent to these ears (despite cramming quite a lot of music on each side). Artwork, inners etc all great quality too.

Just delete "Metamorphosis", "Electricity", "Before" and "Saturday Night Forever" and this is among their best ever releases.

Lots of possible threads but none leading anywhere, really. The most interesting and best tracks are the SheBoom collaborations (Discoteca, Single, Se a vida é) – a shame that instead of more of those sounds we get thin dance pop (Metamorphosis) and a b-side (Electricity). A sweet, if slightly underproduced and overlong ballad (It Always Comes As A Surprise) is the centrepiece of the record. The following eurodisco of A Red Letter Day is the first appearance of a generic psb-template that would be repeated with almost every album afterwards (NYC Boy, Sodom, Did You See Coming?, Love Is A Bourgeois Construct). Apart from a production that hasn't aged well (and sounded slightly forced even at the time of release) it is actually quite a beautiful song – just listen to the live recording on the I Get Along single. The rest of the album consists of demo-quality and completely out of place Danny Tenaglia-produced tracks. While I've always been partial to Up Against It and To Step Aside, they could have used more than a little additional polish. All in all a mishmash, unsure of itself and lacking direction. 3/5

Here's one of the Boys' best releases, comprising the magnificent remastered Bilingual and its corresponding chest of off-album goodies. Bilingual is their last of great albums, a checkpoint-charlie between the lost magic and the ongoing craft. I'd risk to call it a concept album, with an untold story behind it, an overall message wrapped in cerebral tunes. The outstanding b-sides don't drive away from the album at all - they just depict the amount of material the Boys had then, and how much energy, magic, and melanholy was in question. For the last time 5/5
