If we're discussing sound quality here, we should be clear on what formats... the thread is titled 'LP 1'.... does that mean the thread refers only to the vinyl edition? And if so, are you guys listening to the vinyl edition? Is there/should there be a separate thread for the CD edition? Or separate threads for content and sound quality discussions?

The vinyl won't be brickwalled....

Just think it's worth clarifying these things to avoid confusion.

I think it's for discussing the tracks mentioned, so CD disc 1, vinyl discs 1 and 2.

Things will get pretty ridiculous if there are seperate threads for vinyl, cd, digital or leaked version.

*edit* Meant vinyl side 1 and 2.

Do we know if this leak is sourced from vinyl or CD?

Or even just direct from the digital files. No idea. Are we all even listening to the same leak? I don't know about brick walled, sounded ok to me. Certainly don't hear any clipping like on PR remaster.

May I suggest that it's absurd to have TWO threads for the original album? I mean, what's going to be discussed beyond the quality of the remaster? And how will that differ from CD/LP 1 to CD/LP 2? I think one thread for the whole original album is enough.

So I’ve been listening in headphones and going back and forth between this and my original copy of the album and it seems the volume level wasn’t addressed? I always hated how when I have my Prince collection running on shuffle how I always had to crank up the volume whenever a track from SOTT came on. That would be my only complaint so far...

Well, you aren't wrong. But on the other hand, we can't tell the mods they are wrong. lol

Guys, seriously falloff

The point of my comment wasn't to restart that particular shitstorm, just to make a practical point. I think Part 2 is gonna die by itself anyway, so we'll have a Part 1 thread that'll cover both parts of the album which is... weird. It's not too late to rename this thread and delete the other is all. Not that it's a matter of life and death, admitedly lol

As I said before, I completely agree and it should be done. Doesn't look like anyone has even replied in the other thread yet anyway.

Yeah sorry, I sort of assumed that you and the other mods would be scanning these threads because we're all anxious to discuss the release and get info from others about various versions, mixes, etc. and I assumed EVERYONE here would completely forget about their lives today, not go to work, let the kids starve and focus on SOTT SDE lol lol lol

But yeah I wasn't thinking and I see your point. I see you've made it one thread now though, which is cool, so thank you smile

This album finally has the thumping low end it deserves! Compare the original Strange Relationship to the remaster and man the remaster has much more balls to it sonically

Absolutely stoked with this remaster. I particularly love how crispy the drums sound and how clear the vocals sound.

I am with the general consensus on this one. Having attempted to remaster the album myself several times over the years, it always had a trade-off. But this is perfect - everything I've ever wanted it to be.

Always cry 4 love, never cry 4 pain.
