I understand why, I just thought it was scummy that more were probably sold for scalping than those who actually liked it, but this is not exclusive to this release at all, it’s a RSD-wide problem. Also, the Butch Devo release was actually pretty good, ... See full review

Horrifically brickwalled, that and it’s mastered from lossy. From checking the early CD releases on compilations, they’re also lossy, so given that mid 90s timeframe, and looking at the spectrograms, I’m guessing it’s .mp2 compression.

The Def Dub and the second half of the Classic Mix are very menacing and foreboding for garage house, with the dramatic strings and heavily reverb’d vocals by CeCe, almost progressive house really. Standouts from this already great double 12” pack.

I have a copy, it's a bog standard 12", you're probably thinking of this one:

It's almost up to 30 mins a side, the problem with making it a quad LP would be the track divisions, I don't think it would really work on eight sides.

If you like tasteful trance, or just have an open ear to reinterpreting the classics, these remixes are actually quite good. Surprised to see that even the Oakenfold one was of really high quality.

After a few cleans and plays, it sounds better, still a few clicks, but it's a great way to have the album on wax.

No way to tell for certain but I have a hunch this is cut from CD or a comparable digital master, so the differences between this (and probably the 2011 vinyl) and the CD are down to the cutting engineer. If you want to hear a version without a lot of ... See full review

The Round The World Mix sounds like it's in mono, but by doing a null test, you can hear that some of the rhythm parts (the hi hats, the whistle, a bit of the bass drum, and a few more) are on a stereo field.

Canadian, usually many Canadian releases will be very similar to US releases, with the main difference being references to Canada instead of the US

Be advised that in the 80s and 90s, Trax had basically no quality control for it’s 12” pressings and used really dodgy quality vinyl formulations. Even brand new sealed copies will probably sound bad, so be advised when buying these on Discogs (aka don’t ... See full review

The content that’s here is great, no doubt, but these tracks were probably “remastered” in Audacity. I can recognize that noise reduction setting from a mile away.

Agreed, even if I don’t like the marketing blurb, I was quite shocked and pleased to hear how good this pressing is, especially Side A. Very little surface noise on Side A, though there’s quite a bit more on Side B, though still listenable and the master ... See full review

Sounds fairly good, a bit of distortion on the vocals on Fire (might be intentional), though Cudi Montage is distorted and has some recurring surface noise, despite having no physical blemishes.

Downtempo/Breakbeat at 33 1/3, DnB at 45, try it out.

Edit: Expanding Lion is freaky at 45, which the back cover states it's supposed to be played at.

Seems to be sourced from MP3, though relatively high bitrate mp3. The Def Mix on here still beats the vinyl rips.
