Per the reissue, I have to say that I was shocked....SHOCKED by the remaster. Most people might listen to it and think it's "tinny" and "lifeless", devoid of any rap style bass. That's the reality of music production from then compared to now. Vinyl was never capable of producing the loudness a CD is. That's because CDs today are compressed beyond belief to the point they blow your ear drums out. The gentleman that did the remaster work, Joe Reagoso, is someone I have not heard of but he did an excellent job. He's not a hack who merely maximises the tracks so I lose my hearing. Again, some people might be turned off by the fact that the album does not have pounding bass like a modern one and are required to adjust the volume of their iPod. I have the Japanese reissue and it has the qualities of "loud" which sound good at first, but in actuality you loose any dynamic quality to the music. If you want loud, track down a copy of that. If you are looking for something faithful to the music, this is an excellent, very cheap, reissue.
Ballard's liner notes are brief but nice nonetheless. There are no bonus tracks and frankly I don't think there need to be. I'm not even sure there was anything to add as there were no B-sides as far as I can remember. All in all, an excellent buy for 11 dollars!
