While the content on this album is amazing, the mixing and mastering could have been done differently. When I listen to the singles of the same songs, it's clear that these versions lare lacking in dynamic range and raw energy...too much compression. I'm very curious to hear the unofficial splatter pattern 2016 release to see which originals they used and if they compare more closely to the singles released. Don't get me wrong, it's still a great album that's worth having.

This is such a good double LP. One thing that stands out in this album is Blue Monday, I remember all the lowered disco mini trucks in L.A. playing that tune all the time. It sounded really cool to hear it increase in volume then fade away when the cha cha's would pass. I mean totally, every disco dude played this about 3 months straight.
Another thing about this album is that you can't go wrong with it everybody has a thing for this album.Get Substance.
