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, analogâ?¦
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.
