That has sold me in to buying the Revolution 2018 LP! The last CD copy i bought was the gold border remasters, you can hear the hi-hat on the drums a lot clearer, sounds more lively too. Does the rest of the L.P sound any different?

I'd say it's mostly about increased bass and treble with Revolutions. The Chronologie one also has the odd edits (the transition between Chronologie 1.1 and 1.2, Chronologie 8's watch part at the end starting earlier... but also a nice feature in Chronologie pt. 4 fading out later than in the pre-2010s versions).

Comparing Chronology 4 and 5 with the 1997 Chronologie CD (Scott Hull remaster) although the more saturated and punchier bass on the vinyl I still think the older CD sounds clearer, crispier and more well defined. The droid effect and solo near the end of Chrono 4 is drowned by everything else and the big string sound on Chrono 5 is a big mess. I can blame it partly on my cartridge and tube pre-amp which are creating a warmer sound and are less successful in emphasizing minor details. Probably also why Chrono 1 and the big organ opening on Chrono 8 is so darn powerful on this new vinyl.
