This is the second most disappointing release that I have come across (the other is the remastered 'Kraftwerk - Der Katalog/The Catalog'). The tracklisting is five stars all the way, but the mastering job isn't even worthy of one star. If you like highly-compressed music where the loud parts are loud and the quiet parts are loud, then this is your cup of tea. The dynamics of the music is totally shot. Your ears will get fatigued before you even hit the half-way point of the first CD. The wonderful nuance between the sounds is completely ruined. It's as if it was mastered by someone who is almost deaf. I can't believe Alchemy Mastering even put their name of this steaming pile of poop.

To recap: Great tracklisting; horrible sound.

Just listening to "TSOP (The Sound Of Philadelphia)" on this release and it sounds odd to me. After comparing with the release #1479957 (Mixed Masters #3) all was clear.

Check at 0:42 - it sounds completely destroyed.

Also the dynmamic range says it all:

DR07; RMS-09.05; Peak-0.05 (this) vs. DR13; RMS-15.23; Peak-0.20 (#1479957)

I have to say the version on #1479957 is a little bit faster but could be corrected within Wavelab or maybe there is another better source.

Again: It is a collectors item - nothing for listening and djing.

Great collection - but sorry again ...

Update:

Also "I Love Music" sounds odd. Compare with e.g. #1667949 - sounds so much better:
DR08; RMS-09.68; Peak-0.05 vs. DR13; RMS-15.10; Peak-0.61

2nd Update:

What the hell has happend with "TSOP (The Sound Of Philadelphia)"? Check from e.g. 4:22 and compare with #1479957. I don't understand this sound quality difference. The sound itself changes (and the musical keys too of course).

DR07; RMS-09.05; Peak-0.05 vs DR13; RMS-15.23; Peak-0.20
