I'll be honest, I've only heard the first CD so far, but it's a little underwhelming. The best track (remaster wise) is Theme from MASH, which sounds fantastic, alive and blistering. The drums, bass and piano are ace. Even the backing vocals are better.

Need to listen more though. One thing's for sure, nobody will be complaining that it's too quiet ever again, it's fucking loud!

Heard the first CD this afternoon and agree with Tidus, MASH is brilliant. I think the sound levels are just a smidge too high personally but nowhere near as deafening as "Stay Beautiful" on NT. I might be getting a listen to the bonus tracks this evening specifically "Poleaxed", "Colt 45" and "Spent All Summer". "Poleaxed" is meant to be quite stunning.

I would agree, if anything they might be a bit loud.

I've only got a digital copy at the moment, but a physical copy is apparently in the post, so hopefully that'll have more than just the first CD in it.
