CD Reviews

FANTastic!

"It is a relief to finally see these albums remastered so brilliantly.
Adam and Marco are two of the best from the 1980's and to have Marco work on these remasters makes it truly a collection of the best quality and a worthy addition to any Ant fans collection!
The tracks are clear and clean. The demos and extras tracks are hilarious and fun to listen to to hear some of the earlier choices of lyrics etc..
As well as this boxed set there are the three previous remaster releases of Dirk Wears White Sox, Kings of the Wild Frontier and Prince Charming. I highly recomend getting all of these as well. They will all fit into the special boxed set. The CD sleeves and inserts look great with classic pictures as well pictures I had never seen, and was a rabid collector back in the day! The Inserts also include the lyrice to all the songs even the demos & extra tracks that are not on the original albums!
I've been a fan since 1980-81 and it is a joy to finally have decent versions of these albums on CD! Thank you Marco and Adam there's nothing like Antmusic and there never will be anything to top it!

Where are the b-sides ?

"I'm not going to describe the music that can be found here.
If you are planning to buy the boxset i assume you're an ant-fan and you know what you're looking for.
Much more interesting, or rather disturbing is, i think, that the package (and the three first remastered albums) contain a lot of demoversions I actually can do without. Why not include all the b-sides instead ? They would have made this collection definitive for me. Now I own a boxset and still don't have 'deutscher girls', 'plastic surgery' , 'beat my guest' , christian dior , etc... included. I think that's a big shame on a collection that is obviously put together with love and care."
For every Ant-funs

"I am a proud and happy owner of the 'Adam Ant Remastered collection'. I like Adam since I was a highschool student. When I heard this, I understood why I loved Adam and his music. Adam and Maruco have good imaginations. Their music like the cinema. Each of songs has its paticular world. I enjoyed it as if I was in the movie theater. All songs are so attractive. I especially like 'Jolly Roger' and 'Five Guns West'."
