Deluxe Vinyl Replicas by Culture Factory constitute high quality reissued compact-discs which reproduce all the components of the original LPs and are their exact replicas in compact-disc size (5.3 x 5.3 inches), with authentic single or gatefold cardboard jackets and paper sleeves. In addition to the above, each compact-disc Deluxe Vinyl Replica includes a black finish CD complete with the original label to give it the look and feel of the original record album. Culture Factory strives to achieve an authentic sound with the highest possible fidelity to the original studio masters. Our remastering process brings out the music's true dynamics and original clarity with low levels of noise. In the remastering studio the audio tracks are handled in the form of high-definition, 96Kz / 24-bit digital files for greatest preservation of fidelity. Signal compression is sometimes used to bring out frequencies that were absent or barely heard in the original recordings, and we use the least amount of compression possible. While sound perception varies greatly among individuals our vinyl replica CDs are designed to provide the optimal listening experience when using flat EQ settings. Brand new, original, factory-sealed, limited edition CD release.
Truly amazing! The attention to detail, the remastering, the overall packaging-- I've never seen anything this complete or as well done EVER. Greatest CDs ever. 10+, five stars, all walk-off grand slams! --Gary Moore, 95.5KLOS-FM
Top customer reviews
You Make My Heart Beat Faster (And That's All That Matters) - Terrific pulsating opener with an unforgettable hook; wonderfully infectious earworm
Young Love - Tic-toc percussion on the gloomy verses gives way to dynamic rock/new wave chorus
Met You at the Wrong Time of My Life - Percolating, wistful Adult Contemporary number
Hurricane - Fluttery synth and handclaps accompany disquieting melody and lyrics; should have been a big hit single
Universal Song - An uplifting, almost-classical number with tic-toc percussion
Invisible Hands - Fast-pumping, synth-pop with an incredibly contagious hook; another missed opportunity for radio; the most-'80s sounding offering here
I Pretend - Mid-tempo, laid back AC number; another terrific hook
Hangin' On By a Thread - Simple piano ballad that lasts just long enough (2:46) to not bore or slow the album down too much
A Kick In My Heart - Yet ANOTHER melody that will stick in your head for days in this mid-tempo gem with slight Country-Rock influence that seemed tailor-made for AC radio
I'll Be Here Where The Heart Is - Pretty ballad with rock guitar and keyboard to spice it up but the album's weakest cut
FIVE STARS...Buy This Now!
I think credit should go to Culture Factory for this CD. They've done a great remastering job.
