Japan & related, Ultravox, Depeche Mode, New Order & Roger Taylor completist. Not interested in collecting every single pressing but certainly interested in collecting all tracks & versions of tracks by these artists.

This is a fantastic version of the song which, in its original incarnation was a bit lacklustre. However, the production/mix/mastering on the title track is incredibly dull, lacking life on all pressings and compilations I have. The rest of the... Voir l'avis en entier

I have but that's not the point - I bought the Steve Wilson mix & expected to receive the Steve Wilson mix.

That's fair but this copy sounds sooooo much better than either my original 12" or CD.

I was surprised when I played the download to find it was the 2012 master from The Complete Studio Recordings. A little disappointing, I agree.

I guess that for a cassette recording it has been cleaned up well.

Ditto here but I also found the album quite tedious. Too many stylistic changes and anachronisms left me feeling quite unsatisfied compared to their previous release.

Side two has some of the most shocking levels of crackle I've heard on a new record in a long, long time. Is this common across other copies?

Well they are all on the Extended set from 2017 and are nicely mastered - regardless of what you think about the Blank & Jones CDs

Ditto - the sounds a little compressed toward the end of each side but otherwise it's very good. Bought my excellent condition copy for £25 and then the next week the 2020 reissue is announced!

When ordering records you don't order the exact amount that you think you need. Instead you end up ordering to pricing break points (i.e. points at which the pricing changes). For example, I'm getting some CDs pressed as we speak and it is cheaper... Voir l'avis en entier

That's interesting because mine doesn't have the ripples but gets a wah wah from the non-centred spindle.

Well that will only tell you that it was a group of discs which - based on the reviews so far - seems to be true. This is a pressing issue meaning that it is largely human error at work here: too little plastic pellets used, plates too hot, discs... Voir l'avis en entier

Bloody awful: noise, distortion, clicks & pops, warped & spindle hole off centre. Avoid and/or ask for money back.
a posté un commentaire sur R.E.M. - Monster. 11 months ago
Personally I'm of the mindset that the original mix has been mastered a little flat in this release, possibly to make the new mix sound a bit sparkier. But overall not loving the new versions after a couple of listens.

Doubt it: typically Miles S works from digital files for ½ speed masters I believe.

Hi. They aren't brickwalled but have do have a lower dynamic range than the earlier releases.

If you think the Naked Eyes remaster sounds good then you're probably mistaken. It's a completely brickwalled master.

This edition is clearly mastered at 44.1khz according to a frequency review and so is likely to have used an existing 16 bit/44.1khz CD master which is disappointing: the record cannot sound any better than whatever CD is has been mastered from.
