Greetings from the USA!

Just thought Id pop in and ask if anyone else is disappointed at th2 remix of "Ultravox!"?

Are we really getting "I-pod-ized" so that remixes sound like tinny bombasts? Ugh! Is this so it sounds like better garbage on MP3?

WWJFD?

Cheers!

Greetings, Anthranill! I had a similar shirt (it had the "Ultravox!" graphic repeated three times down the front of the shirt) but I haven't seen it since around 1985. cry

Thanks all!

Well, what about the "remastering"?

Anyone have a clue? It's not just taking the RIAA Eq off the cutting master, it's completely re-eq'd like some crappy rap album! All low frequencies enhanced, all dynamic range levels compressed and all artificial as a result - at least as I kn ow and love that album, tape and CD from...

You can't blame the Machine for this one!
