The same could be said for Deeper and Deeper on this collection to me. The Kick and Cymbals are distorted when played together. It sounds ear fatiguing.  It's fine though.

It is, at the very least, even if I won't listen to this particular remix from the collection, it rekindled my love for David's mixes. I'll just swap it out with the original on my playlist.

Actually, I can actually see this compilation as a major streaming piece for the general public.  Not arguing the mastering but I think that thus is gonna be legacy building.  

I don't see a casual listener enjoying 50 (FIFTY!) remixes at once for the sake of Madonna. Maybe listening 1, or two, a memorable hit remixed... but nothing more.

I quote myself to make clear that maybe the 16  track version is more GP focused, but no 50 obv.

@ScottyX Are you getting these?

 

Hmmm they don't ship to Australia either - might have to grab them on ebay in August

And yet they ship to USA.

Weird.

No offense to anyone making fun of us analyzing the music... but blemishes in the music can instantly pull someone out of an experience. The magic of music production lies in creating space with audio effects like reverb and delays and it transports you to a place other than where you are. Something like the audio glitch in Music on Celebration makes the track unlistenable to me. The world created by Mirwais is instantly killed. The same could be said for Deeper and Deeper on this collection to me. The Kick and Cymbals are distorted when played together. It sounds ear fatiguing.  It's fine though. Now I know it's not going to be THAT type of listening experience like every single album before Hard Candy.  This is something to play casually, not get lost in the world of sound. 

It's also not something we should expect because of loudness wars and the such. Alot of new music is an eargasm to listen to. Many artists mixing in Dolby Atmos which is all about the separation of sounds, not crushing them together in some homogenous mess. 

Harry Styles new album sounds AMAZING, and he's at the top of the music game I would say. 

People are acting like if you say something critical about the remastering, that it means you think Madonna is over and should retire.

I don’t get it! It’s just a critique! A discussion! Who knows what the rest of the songs are gonna sound like.

I listened to his new album and, while the sound quality was great, I cannot say the same for the music itself.

There are less popular people making more incredible music.

Not to drag us too off track, but I agree. It was a so so album. It was hard to sit there and decide what would be good follow singles. I. Thought the lead single was awesome. But the album blurs too many similar sounds. There’s some good songs on it, but it almost seemed like he didn’t care to push the envelope really. I’m worried for Dua Lipa’s next album similarly. I have faith Madonna can successfully reinvent and experiment with sounds. Most of the new artists… not quite.

It will probably change by the time FEL is released. Japan's borders are still closed and that has had a big impact on the mail service (residents can only send letters overseas). However, the borders will be open from next month (after two years!), so we should be able to ship parcels in the next few months.

Looks like that's how its going to be. We will have to wait till someone puts it up for around 200 bucks on ebay.😩

Sadly audiophiles are a largely a thing of the past. Most people listen to music on cheap laptops and mobile phones often with cheap headphones, or even flat screen TV speakers which are notoriously shite or sad little bluetooth speakers. Most people don't even have a hifi system anymore. Either that or theyre on free or LQ data plans or Spotify Free or even You Tube. Crap sound is the dominant format unfortunately and M's music needs to sound audiable through those mediums. Not just M's most people so they sort of have to plump out her music just like her ass to compete. 

Not really true. Of course there are lots of people like that but there are also many who collect and listen to vinyl. (And not just buy multiple copies to keep shrink wrapped for no real reason.)

I didn't realize we have so many audio engineers and mastering experts in here. This place is full of hidden talents

I can’t speak for others but I used to work in a recording studio and as an audio engineer. And I can tell you now that a lot of the people discussing this do know what they’re talking about. Of course nobody here is a world renowned producer but nobody here is a world famous pop star or music manager either so if being an “expert” is required to discuss or have an opinion about anything Madonna related we may as well close the forum.

Aye but this is mass consumption we’re talking about. 70 million streams of the Frozen mixes doesn’t compare with 6000 copies of vinyl of FEL.

They’re upset because they don’t understand what’s being discussed and feel left out. Maybe they should head back to the thread evaluating her face/age?

I get the discussion..was just pulling legs and busting balls 😤 

I know, you are always fun.

Isnt it funny we are joking about fans applying to be her mastering engineering when in fact, fans did actually design the artwork. And a fan also actually did some of the remixes on the compilation lol

I've never had problems getting Japanese CDs in the past so will just wait and see if I can get it from other Japanese retailers 

I was just able to order one👍. The catch, I had it sent to my UK mailbox, which is a free forwarding service. When they get it they send you an email and will ship it anywhere in the world for a reasonable price. That's the only way i could. Yep nothing to Australia which is weird as I've been using cdjapan.jp for a long time. Never a problem. In the meantime I just made the album myself. nearly every mix is available and i changed the Holiday 7'' Version to Holiday [You Can Dance Remix Edit] and a HQ rip of Silver screen Single Mix of Causing A Commotion.

Does anyone have the true Movie house single version which was only on Vinyl and some people had reconstructed the track. The actual vinyl is a different mix than is in the Remixology section. Just different in a few places of the arrangement.

Now I'm wondering if there is any point in keeping my YCD promo CD. I'm sure the value isn't that high as before.🤷‍♂️

Anyway....................................
