Worth Upgrading For The Upgraded Sound Alone!
on April 4, 2006
The sound quality alone was enough for me to upgrade to this new 2006 digitally remastered compilation. While the 1996 'Greatest Hits' remastering was good for it's time this new 2006 remastering by Evren Goknar is brilliant. (Evren also did a wonderful job on 2005's 'Greatest Hits' release by Pat Benatar). The audio is crisp, clean, and full, capturing the audio advancements in mastering 10 years later. It sounds WONDERFUL. The punchy, heavy, driving sounds of "Unskinny Bop" and "Nothing But A Good Time" (listen to those pounding drums at nearly 3 minutes in!) are only two examples of why this collection is worth owning for the audio enhancements.
Many fans who purchased the 1996 Capitol release, 'Greatest Hits 1986 - 1996', may be hesitant to pick up a new Poison hits compilation. If you don't care much about sound quality, don't bother. However, if you are interested in a stunning audio upgrade with new packaging and extra tracks not featured on the '96 release, I highly recommend this release!
Note: Although Amazon.com does not specify, both "I Want Action" and "I Won't Forget You" are present in their single versions.
