What exactly has been remastered?

Re: Reissues project

According to iTunes the bonus content has been remastered as well. I guess it is then, has anyone compared it to the 2001 issues? Reading on the official site it does indeed seem as if everything was re-remastered: "Each release features brand new remasters of the original albums and the 2001 ‘Furt...

Re: Reissues project

The glitch in Don Juan (Disco Remix) at 4:51 on Introspective Further Listening is also still there. Makes you wonder how this remastering process went. According to the stickers it seems it's just the albums that've been re-remastered, not the Further Listening discs? R-11633939-1519763653-1630.jp...

Not enough new on the CDs for me, but hey, this is the 21st century… just buy the few new things you like. You already have everything else in physical format already, right?
There are no digital booklets though, right?

Re: Reissues project

The CD format will include an extensive booklet, designed by Farrow, which features exclusive interviews, archive photographs and sleeve notes.
At last they're pointing out the booklets, which somehow aren't mentioned on the stickers for Nightlife/Release/Fundamental.

Re: Reissues project

According to https://www.discogs.com/Pet-Shop-Boys-F ... e/10615732 God Willing starts side B. Another printing error then. There's a small lyrics error for Integral too.

Re: Ring Tones.

I've had the original 56 kbps mono version of "Answer the phone" for quite some time, time to replace it with the CD quality stereo version! :D

Re: Reissues project

The spines of Nightlife and Release can be seen in a recent Pet Text - the jewel case front images are continued on the spines, with no text on top I assume. Anyone care to share some close-ups? (Tried to attach the photo but it's too large.)

Re: Reissues project

Apologies for the crap pictures. I've just walked in the door from work and have a million things to do https://postimg.org/gallery/32fnpo1r2/ Those look good (and noone has yet posted any further images), thanks! :up: While I like that they stick to the same packaging as in 2001, I'm not sure I li...

Here's the HQ artwork I managed to find Digipaks: Nightlife | Release | Fundamental Vinyl/Original Covers: Nightlife | Release | Fundamental Square/Digital: Nightlife | Release | Fundamental Thank you. The square/digital ones look really odd, with the photos/images not being square. Do we know the ...

My fear, though, is that for budgetary reasons the record label will go the cheaper digipak route.
Surely a nice digipak can't be cheaper than a dull jewel case, even if it's one of those odd 3xCD ones?

Re: Reissues project

I'm curious about the packaging - can't possibly be the same as in 2001 seeing as Nightlife and Release contain 3 CDs.

The very notion of a "remastered ringtone" is hilarious.
Well seeing as the original ringtones were 56kbps mono I'm very happy for their inclusion - I usually use "Answer the phone" on my phone, will sound way better now. :)

Re: Official PSB ringtones?

56kbps mono isn't that bad after all, being equivalent to 112kbps stereo. Also, ringtones are meant to be heard through a mobile speaker - 99% of which are mono (100% in 2006 I'm sure) - and still usually not comparable to proper speakers.
