Re: Burning the heather

Has anyone noticed the poor mastering for this song, the same as the one for Dreamland ? What happened with Tim Young ? He's been mastering tracks for the Boys for years now. What is it with this muddy sound where the high frequencies disappear ? Is nowadays music supposed to sound like this ? The ...

Re: Weak production

The problem is the weak mastering. I tried in my studio to enhance the highest frequencies and put a limiter around 300hz and it sounds 1000 times better. I can’t believe the engineer made such a poor job. There’s also a problem in the production IMO. The vocals are way too different in eq. Neil and...

Re: Reissues project

So, have they remastered the 'I Want To Wake Up' version from the first release of 'Actually', or the alternate take used for the 2001 remaster? You can tell by comparing the vocal ad-lib at 4:21. See https://www.psb-catalogue.com/backcatpic.htm: "Neil's singing [ad lib] at 4:21 is different to the...

different mixes

I noticed some of the mixes on the reissues are not the mixes we already knew. Can you help me compiling a list of all the different version we got with the reissues? Someone already spotted out Sodom (demo), Paris city boy (which has now the verse in french too). I think there's a difference in Sam...

Re: The REAL Thursday Radio Edit

Thank you very much scheiner!
Two very good news! Rap is kept and Neil's voice is loud and clear.
Can you please tell us if the album version on the promo has a better mix of Neil's voice as well?
I know it doesn't, just hoping...
Thanks.
