5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Buy, November 7, 2012
This review is from: Countdown to Extinction (20th Anniversary Edition) (Audio CD)
Has it really been 20 years? I remember waiting outside of my local cd store for two hours waiting for the store to open to purchase this album for the first time back in 1992. Even though this was not my favorite release, I still listen to it constantly, even to this very day. Needless to say I was really excited for this remaster to be released.

That being said, here is what you need to know. This is the original version and not the remixed version from 2004. The sound on this release is some what better then the original 1992 version and a whole lot better then the 2004 remaster. One thing I really noticed was the drums which really come out on this pressing as does the bass. This gives the album a slightly different feel to it then what I have original heard.

The second disc is a live concert from 1992. This live set is a lot better then I thought being that the 2nd disc of the Peace Sells remaster was a little to be desired. The sound of this live recording is really good and worth the money.

The packaging is pretty good. It comes in a clam shell box. Inside is a book with some basic liner notes about the album however I doubt there is much in there that fans don't already know. There is a pretty nice poster and cards of each member. For some reason I got a duplicate of Nick Menza but oh well.

There are only 2 negatives to this release. The 1st is the cds come in sleeves and not a case which I really hate. The 2nd doesn't bother me however I know it will bother many of you reading this which is the volume. Yes it's loud. Not Death Magnetic loud, but loud just the same.

I really love this release so Buy It!!!!
