Crystal clear sound. Bass range is not as deep one would expect, at least not as deep as on the vinyl pressing of Vulnicura (I don't have the digital version of The Gate, so I don't know if it's a deliberate mix choice).
One thing that is very impressive ... See full review

It all depends on what we expect from a release like this. To me we deal with low standards of quality here. The outer case is poorly done with a front cover replicated with too much contrast and it manages to be more out of focus than the original cover ... See full review

Having read your comments, I didn't think those problems you mention would be that much of a problem... But they are!
I compared the sound of CD1 to the original 1989 LP I own, and the sound is far more enjoyable on the latter. "Twist In My Sobriety" is ... See full review

"A Man Could Get Arrested" track 2-1 on this release is not the regular twelve-inch B-side also referred to as the 'alternative version'. The whole intro (16 seconds) has been removed replaced by an extended cut of the rhythmic tracks (drums, bass, ... See full review

This has already been discussed somewhere but it seems pointless to argue. I agree that "Complete Music" and "Music Complete" should each have a separate Master Release. Only releases with the same main content are supposed to belong in the same MR. Here ... See full review

Should have been a single-sided 7" with "Eventually But" only.
A-side is pure nonsense, a bad joke really. Must make some kind of sense along with the T2 movie but as a standalone track it doesn't work at all. One would have expected a minimum amount of ... See full review

No this is the other way around. The track on the "Disco 2" CD is the ambient mix (no drums on it), also available as track 3 on "Being Remixed" CD single or B2 on its vinyl equivalent. The "After Hours Climax" mix is supposed to have drums among other ... See full review

Warning: the sound of this album is mixed or mastered in a way that puts bass range on the foreground. There is little definition in the treble range. Most of the time this record sounds muffled, especially on the first four tracks. But it gets better ... See full review

Michael Cretu himself seems to have forgotten that Sadeness Part I was named as such for the single release back then (no Part I on the album) and that Part II was originally used in the name of the Mea Culpa single release. In other words, the first ... See full review

The Extended 12" Mix for Tutti Frutti (or Extended Mix Two as it is different from the Extended Mix issued on the Music Compete box set), is weird in its structure. Besides the fact that the chorus is repeated far too many times, it seems there is an ... See full review

A few seconds after the end of "April Clouds" there is a musical loop of some sort that plays, and this one carries on to the end of the runout groove playing on and on until the needle is lifted.

Wrong 2014 stereo mix, wrong 2014 5.1 surround mix. Only the original stereo mix is correct on the initial faulty copies of this blu-ray release. As the original mix doesn't benefit much from the hi-res treatment, this release is rather pointless. Only ... See full review

It might be a huge improvememt over the DVD mispress but the mix (MLP, DTS and DD) is the same as the one on the Blu-ray mispress. The new Blu-ray has a different mix.

After performing several comparisons between the 5.1 mix from this new DVD and the one on the new blu-ray (I have a copy of both), I can tell that only the new blu-ray has the corrected 5.1 mix.
The 5.1 mix from the new DVD sounds the same as the one ... See full review

Track 2-7 Heart (Disco Mix) is 10 seconds longer than the same version on the original Heart CD single. It's not a different version, it has been slowed down a bit resulting in a lower pitch and a longer duration.

It's unacceptable ! Disc 1 is all about strings. There is nothing like strings to sound awfully ugly on an off-center spinning disc. Such a record cannot be played seriously. If you have a record that cannot be played, the only right thing to do is to ... See full review

The high resolution 24bit version of "Vulnicura" is not a big improvement over the regular 16bit format. This has a lot to do with the way this album sounds. The mix is pretty tame in the high frequencies range. There are no crystal-clear sounds like on ... See full review
