Some people should not be remastering audio......

"While of course this is an increadible album by an increadible group that where and still are ahead of thier time, this is one of those "remastered"
CD's that you wish to God that someone else would have done the job!! It sounds to me like the remastering tech/eng has a case of high frequency burn out as the highs (esp in the area of 4 to 8 khz) are insanely boosted, the stereo image is poor and the much too heavy compression is just plain old WRONG! The drums are non existant. This is one of those Remasters where you would be better off to get either the 1980's CD release or get the CD called "The Other Side of Japan" as it has most of the best tracks from this album. Plus you should get the CD titled Assemblage- that version of the title track Adolescent Sex is the much better version anyways. I only hope that the remastering of Quiet Life and Gentlemen Take Polaroids are much better....."
