The Beach Boys - Pet Sounds and Doors - LA Woman DVD-Audio releases I have considerable differences in tone, but I think for the better, a lot of that simply might be the 5.1 24bit/96hz vs 2.0 16bit/44hz. The recent Depeche Mode and Nine Inch Nails - Pretty Hate Machine Remasters are others that I think kept best of the originals and made them better.

No. They compressed it heavily, it lost its identity. It's one of the worst remasters i've ever heard. I hope they will do a better job re-releasing The Fragile.

I listened to both versions (I have a copy on cassette tape of all things, probably the original recordings) Thank goodness I have the mighty infinity kappa 9001 to play it on: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=16725581&p=7342106#p7342106It's all rushed as hell. The vinyl had a distinctive pace that started out almost slow and ominous and built to a crescendo of despair and fury, like a cavalry charge. This thing is terrible, the Stones are just in a rush to get the damned thing over with. Not right at all. This thing is crap.

Those months of hundred-hour rehearsals (per week) and years spent on technique seem kinda wasted now...Compression is often used in music production to make performances more consistent in dynamic range so that they "sit" in the mix of other instruments better and maintain consistent attention from the listener. Vocal performances in rock music or pop music are usually compressed in order to make them stand out from the surrounding instruments and to add to the clarity of the vocal performance.
http://zenhabits.net/pause/a kid told me that her laptop sports a "see it all mode" or something . when the battery goes low while watching a movie, the app starts playing the movie faster in order to make it to the end.
oh zeus, it's the death of the pause as we know it
