I originally purchased this on CD and (not that I’m an audiophile) was so dissatisfied with the remastering (or lack thereof) that I tracked down a copy on vinyl. While the CD version is tinny and flat, the vinyl version is warm, deep, and organic. Ahhh, analog…
Kiss me on the busAnd other times they are deeply personal as in “Bastards of Young:”
The ones who love us best are the ones we'll lay to restYou also get a killer closing acoustic ballad. Bonus! I am obviously too uninformed and young to cover a record of this magnitude, importance, and influence but if this review causes a few people who otherwise would have never given the record a glimpse to take a moment to read the lyrics and listen then I think it’s all good.
The CD version gets an 8.
The vinyl version gets a 9.
