Great album - mediocre remastering
Monday, April 6, 2009
Having waited a dozen years for this to appear on LP, I'm sorry to report that I am rather disappointed in the vinyl issue. While the CD would seem to indicate the potential for sonic magic (given the analog tape hiss, nice sense of space and excellent dynamics), I find the vinyl issue sonically flat, undynamic and uninvolving. If one didn't "know" better, one might think the LP was cut from a digitally remastered version of the original master tapes. Not what I was hoping for...
