    Après une longue pause, comme beaucoup d’autres, je reviens à mon ancienne collection de vinyle. "Closer Together" est la première chanson de la face B de cet album. Il est mentionné que cette chanson a été remixée à un moment donné dans un autre studio et par un autre ingénieur et ça s'entend. Je veux dire que j'écoute normalement la face A et je retourne le disque pour commencer la face B. Il est alors évident que le son n'est pas le même . Cette chanson est, à mon oreille, trop compressée. Ne vous méprenez pas, j'aime le son de "The Box" mais pour cette chanson en particulier, lorsque j'écoute l'intégralité du LP, la qualité sonore de ce titre devient alors très perturbante.

    After a long break, like many others, I return to my old vinyl collection. "Closer Together" is the first song from the B side of this album. It is mentioned that this song was remixed at some point in another studio and by another engineer and you can hear it. I mean I listen to side A normally and flip the record over to start side B. Then obviously the sound is not the same. This song is, to my ear, too compressed. Don't get me wrong, I love the sound of "The Box" but for this particular song, when I listen to the entire LP, the sound quality of that track then becomes very disturbing.
