When it comes to mini-lp replica sleeve (mlps) releases they come close to and in this case at least matches their more illustrious and still superior Japanese competitors with good quality material and very well designed and assembled sleeves that closely resemble the original vinyl releases; in fact I gave them an extra star for the fact that even the disc itself resembles a vinyl which I felt was a nice touch that our Japanese friends should imitate.
Then comes the all-important sound quality where thankfully while not quite as unlistenable and extremely bad as the Wang Chung release: Points On The Curve - Paper Sleeve - CD Deluxe Vinyl Replica - Import still has over-compression on most tracks and regrettably on the ones that I got this album for: "I Didn't Mean To Turn You On" and "Addicted To Love". Content-wise truth be told the rest of the tracks fall way behind in quality in this very short album with the quirky bookends of "Riptide" although "Flesh Wound" and "Get It Through Your Heart" I enjoyed because they reminded me of something Bill Withers would have done but again truth be told the two aforementioned hits are the standouts here. The sound quality while still poor is better than the Motels and Kim Wilde releases though: All Four One - Paper Sleeve - CD Deluxe Vinyl Replica, Little Robbers - Paper Sleeve - CD Deluxe Vinyl Replica and Kim Wilde - Paper Sleeve Edition.
The only way to listen to this is in your car stereo where the overdrive muddiness on the bass notes probably won't bother you that much what with the other sounds of traffic to distract you away from it. Using headphones though the muddiness is obvious and kills any enjoyment from listening to the album. One bright spot is that at least this is still listenable as compared to the Wang Chung "Points On the Curve" release which is simple unlistenable on any player! I understand that they want to keep the prices low and their profit margins huge but is it too much to ask for them to hire a reasonably competent sound engineer to do a proper mix? By being penny-wise and pound foolish they are just going to keep killing our music and lose what at least for myself WAS an enthusiatic customer base. Unless I hear otherwise that things sound quality wise have improved I'm henceforth giving Culture Factory releases a very, very wide berth. 5 albums of poor sound quality is the limit for me. I'd like some certainty with my purchases instead of the current hit-and-miss although I've yet to find a hit after 5 purchases!
If you are looking for the best sounding version of this album this is not it.
prior island releases on cd and cassette .
The cassettes I had, sounded better than cd releases
there was no depth what so ever I even have german pressed
version of pride. I can't hear it. nor I am death
I have hearing like a dog .
Though, I think some whine babyboomer who listened
to records to loud with giant headphones during 60's and 70's
are partly death .
The island cds are one speed every song have same level
pride, riptide, some people etc. Are just badly mastered for there time
Some people worship Barry Diamount who mastered most roberts cds
as well as others cds I have most are low sounding.
Culture Factory at least steped up to the plate.
And willing to remaster Robert Palmers catalog when no one
else would. It's like night and day comparing cds
I finally can here riptide as was mean't to be heard.
Now , don't have a fancy over priced sound system .....
Nor, do I blast! my stereo up maxium as some people do.
Nor, do I listen to my cds with ear buds remember music
will sound different the closer you are to it .
Some Roberts song's are tiny anyways, so why complain?
I feel Audiomixer who reviews these cds is a someone
who works for the music industry. And just has a grudge with culture factory.
Maybe because he thinks he can do a better job? Ego, always
thinks it is better than anybody else
I think Mr Palmer if alive today would approve.
On a side note, why doesn't audiomixer complain about
Edsel,? who just released all Roberts cds as well.
No negative or postive reviews about that company hmmm....
