Not Remastered..Sounds worse than the import

"Well I had to edit this from my earlier post and downgrade the rating. Collectors choice when reissuing this messed up somewhere..I know it isn't remastered..BUT the import sounds better and has more punch. If you can I would get this Special Forces as the Import rather than the collectors choice reissue. Now for Zipper Catches Skin the reissue soundwise is better than the import and DaDa soundwise is slighly better over the import.
Earlier post below -
Well I received my purchase today for the Zipper Catches Skin, Special Forces and DaDa Cds. While these 3 lost years albums are among my favorites from Alice. I had bought these 3 reissues hoping that they would have been treated to a remastering that they do truly deserve but didn't get this second time around. ???
The highlights of these reissues are the 2 bonus tracks For Britain Only - On Zipper and finally we get Special Forces with the track that was left off the original album at the last minute by Alice because he felt it didn't fit in with the rest of the tracks on the album..though the record company didnt have time to change the cover to omit the track from the listing. We finally get the album as it was listed with "Look At You Over There Ripping the Sawdust From My Teddy Bear" .
I really wish there had been something extra that they had included on DaDa but we get nothing.
Ok if you are a diehard Alice fan such as myself you allready have these as imports and you also have the 2 bonus tracks from the box set Life And Crimes.
These reissues are good for the fan though that don't have these as imports or the box set. Also good that these are available here in the U.S so you don't have to pay the import price.
My question is When is Warner Brothers gonna wake up and give their Alice catalog the remastering they deserve along with bonus tracks etc? They did it to Billion Dollar Babies and Atlantic did it with Welcome To My Nightmare. Warner Brothers and Rhino needs to get this done as it is surly needed!
