For the better (aka "it 4 stars"):
The pieces are all obviously remastered what particular älternen titles doing very well. The result is now a differentiating ed sound, bass is bold and crisp, the sound seems balanced and technically up to date. As the owner of all original CD's of CITY may I notice: Here's a real sonic value for your money.
Among the new titles: "Little City Drummerboy" is an instrumental, known from last year's Christmas Tour. "The Trees" would fit perfectly into the 2007 album "Yeah Yeah Yeah" and is presumably an outtake of the sessions. The remake of "Forever and Always" is "Where You're not" fit and sound-wise also in the number of the last albums. "At the window" is available now in a 10:51 minute version, several new tables aktu Gitarenklänge included - a nice alternative version that respects the original and playful funk.
For improvement (aka "why 1 star deduction"):
- Both CD's are not fully utilized, as it would have been a bit more.
- "Master of All Trades" has a very annoying background noise and sound falls significantly from - a pity!
- The booklet: No information on Remasterverfahren, no producer information or additional comments to the respective titles. Instead, multiple pages with very small images, promotional text (why, the CD've already purchased ...?!) And some band photos. Informative nutritional sadly wrong.
Who has the new title produced (perhaps Andre Kunze ...?), Z. B. in "Little City Drummerboy" the musician Hans the fiddle there? Who has the Remasterverfahren performed the original multitrack tapes were remastered (I guess ...)?
Too bad ... big plus of original CDs is still indisputably an informative booklet. The opportunity was unfortunately missed ....
Conclusion: class music in significantly pimped sound quality, yet small deduction in the B-Note.
