Thanks for the replies so far. The remaster versions I have came out around 2003 I believe. There's a good chance it could just be the original tape's sound I guess, but no other recent remaster of an older record (that I own) sounds like this; and most of my collection is classic rock and r&b rema...

hmm... i can see how your studio having a rep for being haunted can come to be a good excuse for when one accidentally erases a track...just say the ghost armed the track! heh

i was so disapointed with this album. they are, probably, my favorite band. with this album, everything is so squashed. boring. they shouldve stayed with their old producer. agreed. david bottrill, the previous producer/engineer was/is far more superior to the work of joe barressi did for the lates...

i consider the 16 bit cd format to be near-dead. besides the obvious, like higer-res files etc coming out, my main complaint is cds take up way too much space!!! its all going to end up 'virtual' i believe...given the whole ipod revolution and such...it'll all shift from a physical storage hassle to...
