Re: The post about re-masters ....... good or bad ?

Most remasters sound like ass, as they simply seem to add more compression to make everything sound "louder". Steven Wilson's recent remasters have thankfully gone in the other direction. The 2017/2018 remasters of In Absentia and Deadwing are vastly superior to the originals. This is unu...

That’s what I’m thinking. I wonder if Southport has a chance of squeezing them in on the open Monday date? They have a habit of doing just that.

Re: Best place to buy digital music?

Other than a situation like that, I don’t buy mp3s/lossy files. I do buy digital flac/lossless, HD f...

Re: Fates Warning & Haken Live CDs / DVDs .....

The Haken DVD main show from Amsterdam video quality is disappointing. No other way to say it. Especially for such a quality band like Haken that pays such careful attention to every detail in their music. Video is a bit of a mixed bag overall. There are some solid camera shots, mainly in the close ...

Re: Maiden United - Empire of the Clouds

Maiden United is really well done across the board. Haven’t heard this one.

The last album IM was ok, but could have been special with a Martin Birch on board. Needed better arrangements and production. Some trimming too.

I have all the MU releases, and will check out as well.

This is quite light, but there is just something about Subsignal that is soothing to the soul. This reminds me of AoR prog, or Prog bands going lighter, and more commercial.
