Great bonus tracks.Muffled sound on album tracks

"This is an album that you Hollies completists will have to buy twice on CD.The American CD of this album(on the "Wounded Bird" label) has only one bonus track,but on that disc,the 10 album tracks have crystal clear sound.Here on this import,you get 9 bonus tracks(4 of them new to the CD format),and fortunately,the bonus tracks sound decent,but the import has muffled sound on the 10 album tracks(with a marked loss of highs) versus the American disc.Why? Who knows,but the French "Magic" label has an inconsistent reputation where sound quality is concerned.As for the "What Goes Around" album,it is a reflection of its' era:Synth-Pop:well sung,but with little opportunty for guitarist Tony Hicks or Drummer Bobby Elliott(who is forced to compete with a drum machine) to strut their stuff."
