New 2017 Remasters - What's Your Opinion?

#1 Post by DREAMASTER » 14 Dec 2017 01:48

So whats your opinion about the 2017 remasters? Any good? Better than the 2007 remasters and the Boxset?

I just have bought ANATO remastered 2017.
But had no time to listen to it closely and comparing it to the 2002 original. First short listening i can't recognize a difference, maybe in balance.
But during christmas holidays i will listen to it more carefully.... but i am far no expert or an audiophile person.
Sorry about my bad english, but the good one is on vacation!

To be honest, not carefully enough :lol:
But i like the 2017 version. Voice seems more clear and louder, on the other side the drums got more to background which is common with BG music since Thomen left (of course the orchestra stuff plays its part as well)

Your remastering sounds nice, your queen stuff, too. How do you do it?

BTW anyone else a bit disappointed that there was no Santa Guardian, nor new years whishes. Let's hope they are very busy 8)

I'm glad that you liked :)

For BG remaster, I use some software to do it. For Queen I used some of the original mastertracks.

Still seems that the 2017 remasters got no interest from the fans.

I've got my copy of ANATO yesterday. I will move it to my phone and listen carefully ;-)

To be honest, I am waiting for the price to drop since i've already got 2 copies of BOF and FTB...

To be honest, listening to ANATO 2017 feels not much different (from memory, no direct listening against origial).
Finally their are id3 tags on the CD so you can finally see Tracknames on audio player/car hi-fi...

When I got some more time, I will take the challenge and listen the original vs. the 2017 remaster.
