Referring to https://www.discogs.com/Ultravox-Vienna/release/99385 (CD RM RE Enh Europe 2000). Not a bad remaster at all. It hasn't been put through the "too good to be true" filter, nor slammed up against the limiters. The precisely-judged gap between the end of the track "Vienna" and the 1st beat of "All Stood Still" is retained from the original vinyl & cassette from 1980 - genius!

It's a real treat to hear "Astradyne" emerging from the opening silence rather than the vinyl rumble or cassette hiss of days gone by.

The B-sides are all welcome - and, of course, now present on the deluxe re-issue of the album, but back in 2000 they were not. Personal favourite: "Alles Klaar" (B-side of the "All Stood Still" single), which tricks the listener with its rhythm until the main beat kicks in.

The notes on the back of the CD case are quite amusing now - apparently I'll need Windows 95 or MacOS 7.53, and a shocking 16 MB of RAM minumum to access the enhanced content :-) The biggest challenge these days is to get QuickTime running to view the video.

When I was first alerted to an ultrabox for “Vienna” I was mostly excited for the live CD but was only somewhat excited for the rest of the package. The live album was still all of that and more. Realistically, I may listen to the album in 5.1 maybe one more time in my life. It’s just not convenient for me, but the whole package was very deluxe and interesting without venturing into packaging or [important here] budgetary overkill. While there was initially some sense that they were milking powder from the cash cow at the end of the day I’m happy to have this thorough presentation of the great “Vienna”‘ album in my personal Record Cell. The mastering has thrown out the trend of diminishing returns over the last 20+ years and it sounds terrific, with no brickwalling and as much detail as they could coax out of the masters. While a 1983 A/D conversion on a master only three years old had a leg up on freshness, the superior A/D conversion of the now has worked wonders on the 40 year old tapes. As far as I can see, barring the lack of “Herr X” in 5.1 [though the DVD menu explicitly states this – suggesting that was a deliberate decision and not a gaffe] I can find no fault with any of the details or aspects of this set. I bought this because I really had to, as I am the exact target for such an endeavor, but my Aztec Energy Dome is duly off to the duo of Dermot James and Simon Musselle for taking the time to do this well and to do this right. In an era when we have so many errors and flubs on what is an expansive luxury item, it’s a pleasure to see the job done so well.

Anybody notice quite bad sibilance on 'Passing Strangers', 'Sleepwalk' and 'All stood still'? My original 1980 LP has the same issues and I'm very disappointed that the problem apparently continues despite the remastering. My setup is fine.

Actually, regarding Audacity, I have been doing just that for over 10 years. I always record at 96/24 stereo and my own recordings sound superb. I have just dug out my original Vienna and am working through it. It already sounds better. Vienna itself sourced from my original 12" single sounds absolutely incredible. To be fair though, non of the Steven Wilson mixes appear on this 4 LP set.

Having had this set for several weeks now, here is my review. First of all I think the price of this set is excellent (£45 from Amazon). The packaging is very good but I don't think the gatefolds were necessary. The 12x12 booklet is superb but the 4 photos are not great. The sound quality on the 5 CDs is excellent. Good dynamics but slightly flat sounding. The Steven Wilson mixes are OK but not as good as the original mixes. Its just a different listening experience. The dvd is the highlight of this set for me. I have no interest in surround sound so I just listen to the 96/24 stereo versions. I will leave the surround mix review for someone else. On a basic dvd player it didn't sound that great but when I played it on my Arcam DV137 it sounded much better. Great sound but I don't think it quite had the punch and sparkle of my original 1980/81 vinyl pressings. Overall I think this is a great set, especially for the extra live concert and cassette recordings CDs. Superb value for money. If Chrysalis can do this (and the 4 LP clear vinyl set) for around the £50 price point then so can everyone else. A lot of other sets are stupidly expensive.

In all honesty I don't think these new pressings sound as good as they should. The clear vinyl pressings are very clean sounding with little to no vinyl noise. I just don't think the dynamics are there. They sound quite flat and lifeless at times. Even the audio dvd on the other set wasn't as good as it should have been (at 96/24 stereo). I played my original 12" copy of Vienna plus Passionate Reply afterwards and the music on that absolutely sparkles. Fantastic clarity and dynamics. So why have these new versions lost their sparkle? Shame. By the way, the US promotional edit of Vienna is exactly the same edit that was used on Top Of The Pops back in 1981.

Does anybody know who the composers of Animal (4-11) are? I cannot find any information on this song elsewhere.

There is no losseless LPCM Surround Mix, only lossy AC3/DTS Surround Mixes. That's so 2002 for a 2020 release... :-(

I have many, many of Steven Wilson's surround remixes from both progressive (King Crimson, Yes, Rush, Jethro Tull) and modern/new wave (XTC, Simple Minds, Tears For Fears) bands, and I have to say this is the first time I've been anything less than thrilled with the surround mix. The instrumentation in the mixes sounds great, but the lead vocals are so distractingly "up front" in the mix as to really detract from the listening experience. This album is a long-time favorite of mine, and I was really looking forward to hearing his treatment, but I have to say I'm disappointed.
