Hmmmmmmmm...interesting.

I found Neil's appraisal of the CD in Travelling Music interesting as well. But it was a different type of appraisal.

When I bought the CD (release day) and put it on I first thought that I had blown out a tweeter. Turns out that what I was hearing wasn't speaker distortion, but digital distortion. The CD is overdriven. A lot of people in the Rush forum that I was in at the time remarked on it too. I'd been wondering if the copies that are being sold today had been fixed. If so, I'd probably buy another one.

And that guy is right... I've made my share of quiet CD's and then over compensated when trying to fix it. :oops:
Aren't you the guy who hit me in the eye?

That is the best article on the "controversy" I've ever read! Finally it was put out in terms I could mostly understand. I really loved the genious behind the paragraph in all CAPS. For a civilian like me, that got the point across.

Personally I love the sound of Vapor Trails. I like that it's loud and raucous and "in my face." It is suiting for the magnificent come back that it is.

Btw, has anyone heard when the remaster is due to be released? Or is it out already? I'm just curious to hear what others think of the supposed clean up sounds/will sound like.

As far as I've heard, there is no VT remaster in the works. All the other Atlantic studios are there. Maybe they think its too soon
