Listening to the remastered albums 2015 and I am happy with the results. I have no issue of any of the differences...!

The excessive reverb on the Revolution title track, Rendez-Vous being too fuzzy and the pitich-bending glitch at the start of RV2 (starts after the 0:16 mark), the way they mixed Chrono 1.1 and 1.2 (is there some kind of silence there?), the solo at the end of Chrono 2 which is too quiet, Chrono 3's too fuzzy and the clocks are suddenly very very loud, Chrono 4's glitch at 2:09, Chrono 8 has the Swatch alarm timed totally wrong (WTF is up with that??? weren't they using the right tapes?), Calypso 3's drums are too thin and something they did with the fade-out, like they put a lot of white noise with it.

Yeah, they are top-notch-work. Everyone should be happy with what they did.

I'm going to listen to them all today, but yeah what you say Dr_Jones is so disappointing.

I'm sorry Kanta but there's no way you can't be disappointed with the pitch bending in the first minute or Rendezvous 2! Just listen to the original and this "remaster" and tell me you don't mind it.

To quote another fan, it feels like the original master tapes were left behind a radiator for all these years.

:(

Even she will love the sound of the farts of Jarre on a disc. It's not a crime to choose what you like and dislike. But it's weird to love everything what Jarre does. Everybody here know that nobody is perfect and that we make mistakes from time to time. And an artist also! :) :roll: :wink:

... Okay, just listened to that one.

Even when you take into mind that the remasters are LOUD because essentially that's what the record company wants (that and they're not doing this for old fans), that's just subpar work. Good grief.

To sum it up, Pink Floyd's 2011 releases and Kraftwerks' Der Katalog from 2009 count as amazing remasters. Whatever's going on with Jarre and Depeche Mode is far from it.

I just let my girlfriend listen to it, totally not a Jarre fan and someone who knows not much songs. She immediately heard it.

Try the end of Chrono 8, where you can hear the slowed down Swatch alarm, for a real shocker.

EXACTLY what I did with the wife, who isn't a fan either. She told me it sounded DREADFUL.

I'm going to hit Chronologie (why oh why is it Chronology now?!) 8 now... not looking forward to it.

If anyone is interested I have uploaded a photo album for the Remastered Albums January 2015 where the booklets can be seen:

I will ignore the comments made by some here just because of my opinions. it is not a total loss completely. Yes, there are certain issues with the albums but not everywhere and I am still glad I purchased the albums. The booklets as you will see are very nice, imho!

The booklets are actually pretty good (possibly even better than the 1997 ones which were a bit too heavy on rambling at times), that's something.

I saw it too! Look at "Revolutions" last track. It's "L'emigrant" instead of "The Emigrant". Though the rest of the tracklist is in English. :shock:

In other way nice and pretty booklets! :) :wink:

Greetings,


Christophe
