"Does anyone have the final word on the degree to which Astralwerks (sic) have screwed up these Eno 'remasters'?

'Another Green World' has the first bars of 'Everything merges with the night' missing, 'Climate Study' is missing from 'More Music For Films, and someone below states that the intro to
'Quartz' on this album is also truncated. Are Astralwerks just a bunch of amateurs or something? Eno must be well pleased with this mess..

"Haikus for Eno

1. Aragon

Climbing the far hill
Away from the city's noise
Faithful Orion

2. From the Same Hill

I am a friend who
Never calls who just stays home
Dreaming of mountains

3. Inland Sea

My soul follows the
Current of the river north
North that has no end

4. Two Rapid Formations

Day in and day out
The colors of the day smile
At me and I frown

5. Slow Water

Someone takes my hand
The edge of happiness feels
Just like tomorrow

6. Sparrowfall (1)

The night is warm while
My neighbor builds his house of
Moonlight spider silk

7. Sparrowfall (2)

The neighborhood wakes
And the colors of the day
Knock on every door

8. Sparrowfall (3)

The couple upstairs
Passionate and untiring
The windows open

9. Alternative 3

The desert sky is
Icy and clear demanding
A response from me

10. Quartz

Fog moves in offshore
And enters my mind as sound
There's no place to hide

11. Events in Dense Fog

Morning is here as
Sadness comes to the city
And dreamers still sleep

12. 'There Is Nobody'

Astronomers peer
Nomads smile and beauty
Waits for all of us

13. Patrolling Wire Borders

I consider those
Whose only blanket is a
Sidewalk in winter

14. Measured Room

Love is all around
It's just across that street where
Everybody lives

15. Task Force

My only window
Faces west and needs washing
This explains a lot

16. M386

The Pleiades hang
And sparkle, memories fall
Bright and hard and cold

17. Strange Light

My heart has put up
A sign - "For Sale by Owner"
It's move-in ready!

18. Final Sunset

Where the light is warm
And soft, where the freezing nights
Never end-but where?

Okay but not great

"I am a big fan of Brian Eno's early abstract work. I like the way he took simple ideas and explored them until they became transformed into something completely different. For example, on "Music for Airports" he recorded women singing single notes, made tape loops of varying lengths from those recordings and let them circulate until many different combinations of notes and silences emerged. The result was beautiful and other-worldly. So, when Eno recorded an album of "soundtrack material" (for non-existant films) it seemed that he had stumbled onto a great outlet for his music. Instead, this is a collection of pieces that sound like floor sweepings from the "Another Green World" sessions. The pieces are short and often sound like passing thoughts that never developed into anything of substance. There are some nice moments on this recording, including some great bass parts and guest appearences by people like Robert Fripp but overall this is one of the weakest of Eno's early recordings."
