|FMO is my favourite 80s album but I always felt it was a little thin on the bottom end. Hopefully he doesn't muck around with the general structure too much though.|
Thin on the bottom end? Have you heard it on a proper setup yet?
Those close range recorded drums got punch like hell! Even Sonus Faber got a nice workout!
I can imagine low end subwoofers having problems with it as only thing they can reproduce is whoooooo whooooo type of sound.
Ha it's not the drums that are the problem, it's everything else. (I guess it's got a bit to do with how stuff sounded like coming out of the Fairlight, and everything else sort of got mixed so it sounds a little... distant, whereas Crises did sound deeper.)
I guess there's a few interesting out-takes to come out of that era. Such as that slightly different mix of the song Five Miles Out that turned up on The Complete.
Also looking forward to what happens with Crises too.
I guess aside from the live tapes (which were the most interesting addition to the last pair of reissues for me), all those b-sides (Rite of Man - has this ever even come out on CD?), 12" mixes (hey, I really like the one for Shadow On The Wall) and the non-album singles like "Mistake" and "Crime of Passion" from that era - ought to be enough room on the first disc for those anyway. Although most of us have those, don't we?
