I am really puzzled with the sound "quality" of the Extended CDs (have yet to listen to the Vinyls but I donīt think this will make much of a difference). Since I have received my box set, I am comparing the tracks one by one with the originals, the later 180g remasters, the Ultravox Extended CD and my old Maxi-Singles.
The quality does not live up to my expectations, especially "Lament" sounds wrong. Most of the songs either lack bass or have too much highs. It gets very noticable when you switch forth and back while listening.
Honestly, I was expecting something in the likes of the Rubellan Remaster of the first Visage album.
Maybe I am the only one, but still ...
