If you are a fan of The Motels and don't want to plop down nearly a hundred bucks for the first CD issue of this album, grab this one instead. It sounds amazing compared to the flat original. I am definately not disappointed!!
Martha Davis has never sounded better!
But the main reason i was compelled to write a review is because the other reviewer here--cool first name btw--is apparently the only one with "ears" or maybe just not dumbed down by loud MP3 downloads and harsh overly loud mastering of the past 5-7 years. the review does come off annoyed but i don't blame him. he's dead on with this. I mean, you can listen to this CD on possibly a car stereo and be okay with it, but on most players and stereos, it only causes nervousness and fatigue. Moreover, it's too loud to turn up and enjoy. When they do albums like this, it's like they're already too loud when you're listening at low levels. And right, it's like they've just maimed the original recording. And for me, it's rendered this release annoying at best.
Really like the packaging. Shame. Good packaging is important to me and they've done a nice job here. But please, for the sake of honest music oriented people, stop the over compressing and red level EQs on these good albums. Simply start with the original master and let the damn thing breathe a little. There IS something called "Dynamic Range" Good numbers for this important quality in music (which allows music to surprise and wash over the senses nicely) are normally around 10-14. CDs like this have a dynamic range around 5 or 6. And there lies the main issue with why it comes off so loud, off putting and after a few minutes , grating to the human ear. When you look at a wave file for a "mastering" job like this, there are no peaks...it's just a giant square block of loudness. is that what music is supposed to be?
I read that this label screwed up the Little Robbers album and possibly All Four One. I'll tell you this, if this one here is considered "good" and THOSE are "screwed up"?? I hate to hear them.
Again, you can listen to this CD, but that doesn't make it enjoyable. I think the reviewers calling this spectacular remastering are just conditioned to these recent brutally loud albums.
To each ear his own, I fully appreciate that. But mastering like this is just wrong and insulting to the original music. Like the -one- reviewer said, i also like the remasters from the 90s because even though they were louder they still allowed the music to be music. They incorporated "useful" compression which simply bumped up the overall to give a more full impressive feel. But the stuff that's going on these days isn't like that. It's just harmful and ignorant to the original vibe and tonality of the music.
But go ahead, buy it and enjoy it if you can. but trust me, if someone could give these compression conditioned people an example of quality mastering and dynamic range, there;'s no way they would come out saying something like this really sounds good. But that's how it goes; people's ears get used to things...even if it's a near distorted wall of harsh sound like this.
Now onto the reissue itself. Culture Factory is doing a service by getting many of these out of print albums back onto the market. But like so many of the reissues of older albums, they lift the volume well past what it needed to be. They did the same to The Romantics' debut. I don't find the volume to be anywhere near the tragedy a few of the other reviewers here have noted. If you were never able to procure a copy of this in its limited release long ago, or the BGO release, this version of "Shock" will do just fine. Get it before it goes out of print, too.
