Welcome to the new BlahBlahCafe!

A new server, a new environment. Updated and all.

As with every migration, some things might have been lost in translation (at least, that's my experience in software development). The main problem is logging in into the boards. These could be caused by several reasons:

- Your browser cache & cookies need to be cleared because we moved to a new server. If you get the error message whilst logging: "The submitted form was invalid. Try submitting again.", you need to clear your cache & cookies. You can find a "Delete cookies" option at the bottom of this page.

- There is also a chance that your password is not correctly converted to the new system. This is a known bug with migrating the system. The only solution is to request a new password, there's a link on the form that will send an email to you to create a new password. If that fails, I can set a password for you, you can contact us at the "Contact us" link at the bottom of the page.

Hi,

Does anyone know if they are going to continue with the remastering thing and release oxygene 7-13 onwards?

Not a huge fan of the 2015 remasters, but i think this album would benefit

I highly doubt a new remaster would be of any benefit to this album. The original mastering was already somewhat loud actually, (and starting with Metamorphoses it was really loud). It wasn't terrible, but not really great either. The vinyl was rather good actually. Maybe someone here can offer you a rip of it.

Honestly if anything all of the remasterings have been rather worthless. They've admitted that they are loud and they don't really seem to care because the old CD's are still available through other means like ebay and thriftshops. I wish they went for new surround sound mixes or even include the singles like Vangelis and Oldfield have done with the last batch of remasters. But instead of that Jarre and/or co are treating these remasters in the absolute worst way imaginable.

Still bummed by the (lack of) quality of the recent remasters. Amazing that a good sounding CD als Geometry of Love is mastered by the same person who did these remasters.

GOL isn't all that amazing either honestly. But when I compare that to the newer masters. There a stark difference no doubt.

I'm not sure what I payed for it exactly, but it was around that for the first release. Still want the regular release.

If only they had thought of that before any of these 2014-> remasters were greenlighted. ;)

I admit the artwork for the remasters is good (Chronologie, Cousteau and Revolutions). But that's it.

No the best part is that they used a dying tape for the Rendez-Vous remaster and ended up having to pull that one and re-release it in no time to fix it. That was absolutely amazing for all the wrong reasons.

And yet the guy keeps talking about how much he cares for audio quality and the sound. Yeah, how about... No?

It's fair to say that Sony insist on the loudness of the remasters, JMJ shrugs his shoulders and let's them get on with it. He has very little if any involvement once he's finished recording. Those who are lucky enough to have VIP passes for the upcoming UK arena shows might be good enough to ask him about this and other things ?
