Away from my stereo for a while. Would love to know if it's an improvement/what they probably did.

I think it sounds too loud...probably brickwalled again. Why still no CD release?

Try my remaster on the Joe box set. It's not brickwalled and I've never won a Grammy.

Oh god no! There's got to be a better award than that. Those Grammy award winning guys don't impress me much at all with their brickwalling and making everything louder crap.

I was going to say "showing them how to properly remaster material" but I like that answer too

Well the money they are earning they should know what to do.

As for award ceremonies I hate those things. Slapping each other on the back to say how great they all are. No thanks, you're all privileged enough.
