I still would like to spend more time listening to the remaster but so far I think this is a successful remaster.
The biggest change is that this release has a much more boomy sound to it. Everything just sounds a lot bigger but without crushing the dynamic range too much. I think the changes to the sound here are more in line with the genres found on the Loveppears album. Because of this, that is why songs like Boys & Girls, Trauma, WHATEVER seem to benefit the most. Which brings me to my slight criticism of the remaster. I think the more minimal and delicate songs like End roll, Who..., TO BE sometimes feel like the lower frequencies are turned up a little too high. Because of that, I think I prefer the original when it comes to the ballads. I feel that they have more clarity on the original release. Overall I think this release is worth getting.
