"This album is one of Pere Ubu's best, one of my all-time favorites. But this review is to rave specifically about the new 2008 remaster, now available on CD from Cooking Vinyl. The original master tape was baked in an oven to dry it out (!!, but according to Pere Ubu's own website) and it was redigitized at the highest rate possible. The result is simply incredible: amazing new detail is now audible, the unique spatial qualities of the mix are even more apparent, and it all sounds wonderful. (To make sure you're getting the new remaster, order directly from Amazon under the entry with a "release date" in 2008.) Let's hope that Pere Ubu's other Chrysallis-era masterpiece, "New Picnic Time" gets similar treatment."
