It's a toss up as to which sounds better--it depends on if you want more detail or wider dynamic range on the recording. Although there are no bonus tracks on this release (which is a surprise I would have thought that "Next Exit" would have been put on here but it shows up on "See Ya' Around" the last Enz studio album when Neil fronted the band), we do get the original lyrics and photos of the band. I'm disappointed that we didn't get any liner notes discussing the final album to feature Tim as leader of the band (although it's clear he was ceding leadership to Neil as Neil wrote most of the material on the album).
Bonus live tracks would have been nice here as well but we don't get any which really surprised me. Either way, this edition is the one to go with because Eddie Rayner's remastering gives the album a much warmer, richer sound with better detail although this is louder and more compressed than the original issue (which was just a flat transfer from dubious source material--can't tell if the previous edition was from the mastertape or not)with little dynamic range. It's really a trade off--do you want more detail and clearer sound or more dynamic range sounding as much like the original recording as possible. Sadly, there's no "best of both worlds" when it comes to the remastered Enz catalog.

This is Split Enz after Tim Finn's first solo album. Contrary to other Split Enz albums, this is a first to be made up of most Neil Finn compositions rather than Tims. Read morePublished on March 27, 2003 by Alistair Clarke
