      AJA 3

      I agree with the previous review. The vocals also sound more natural. Sibilance is, at least subjectively and comparatively, eliminated. Overall there is better resolution compared to shm version and this is consistent with my experience with other platinum shm cds when compared to shm versions.

      STAY AWAY from this release 1

      I am very disappointed with this remaster release. It is very expensive once you add the VAT and postage but it is worth the money if the quality is exceptional. It is very poor quality and sound as if the remastering is done by an amature. The first two tracks sound OK to me but the rest of the tracks I have to stop listening as it is such a poor quality. STAY AWAY FROM THIS RELEASE.

      I have found my home at last. 5

      Analog warmth, improved instrumental separation and clarity, a heightened distinctive bass note punch, improved vocal layers and separation. Audibly superior to previous versions, including the previous SHM mini lp release. Packaging is beautiful, like a retro mini reel to reel tape box, with the original mini lp sleeve with the obi and all inserts included. I'm absolutely satisfied, no longer tied to the mast.
