I agree with Sopromat, this is one of the worst remasters I've heard. The backing track has somehow been cranked way up so that the vocals are drowned beneath the other instruments. It actually gets very tiring for the ears after a while. The original CD may have some issues, as a lot of CDs mastered in the '80s do, since CD mastering was still in its infancy back then... But it still sounds way better than this new master.

I actually find this is a good remaster, its not as loud as the original CD and sounds more warmer, especially the synth on track 2. Compared to the original CD, id say this is pretty much better than the first pressing. Same goes for Rhapsodies by Irene Papas and Vangelis.

This is the worst remaster of Vangelis I ever heard. In fact, this is even not a remaster in my understanding of this word - they just applied a couple of poor audio filters, that's all. And the sound became worser, lost it's original clarity, Irene's voice "drowned" in the music...

Same thing I can tell about another "remastered" album - "Rapsodies".
