4.0 out of 5 stars The Shout could have been louder..., August 21, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Destroyer- Resurrected (Audio CD)
So here it is...
I've been waiting, (like so many others out there) for Destroyer to come out once more!
What hit me first, while listening to the songs was the much louder, cleaner and airier feel to the tracks.
A lot of small stuff comes through, like Peter's bass drum kicking on "Detroit Rock City", enormous bass sound on "God Of Thunder", and in my opinion a nice suprise...the acoustic guitar on "Beth", which you can here throughout the entire song! Nice one! Bob Ezrin did a very professional job on Destroyer, and sort of brought the album to our technological era, without polishing it too much or taking away the organic feel. A '76 version ready for the next years...so to speak. The '75 cover has a bigger impact than the original painting, and looks amazing as LP. Happy that amazon was selling Resurrected also in vinyl form. Bless the black circle!
The CD booklet is thick, very informative with an old stylish layout. Photos are interesting, but nothing really new.
Very unfortunately is the fact that, the "lost treasures" were kept to a ridiculously minumum. "Sweet Pain" with lost guitar solo/harmonies was included as track 6 and therefore made part of the original set. I don't think there was need to add the original "Sweet Pain" version then as a bonus(???)track. The lost "Beth" vocals (hahaha), which I'm sure many of us including me, thought/hoped to be an entire verse, bridge or at least some more words, turned out to be a second ahaaaaaaaa harmony, which was mixed into the middle of the song following the second chorus.
Really?? Probably the same ahaaaaaaaa Peter sang at the end, just copied.
Well, I am giving Resurrected 4 stars. Four members that changed the musical landscape, an album that belongs into the annals of hardrock music, and one of the best album covers of all time! Besides that the price, at least for the CD is fair enough.
