    Depends on the remaster. Some remastering jobs are superior, some are perfectly fine, they just sound different, and some are a complete butchery compared to the original. All depends on who's doing the remaster, and their abilities.

    As in any business, the recording industry has their fair share of hacks.

    Re: USCHO Music Thread: Less Talk, More Rock

    From my internet browsing experience, and some with my own ears, if Robert Ludwig, Bernie Grundman, Chris Bellman, Kevin Gray or Steve Hoffman did the remaster, you can be pretty well assured that it's gonna sound amazing. There's probably quite a few more guys as well, I'm just not familiar with them.

    Next on my must buy list is Gray's 2009 remaster of Van Morrison's Astral Weeks, maybe Moondance as well. Supposed to put the originals to shame.

    I'll chip is to buy the original master of Moondance if I can destroy it.

    I can't even express how much I hate that song.

    Yeah, but this is the first year since probably the early 90's that vinyl sales are projected to surpass sales of CDs.

    But that's mostly because CDs are dead. I bought my last vinyl album around 1983. I bought my last CD about 1998.

    I've been listening to a lot of classical recently. Man, those Russians were rock stars.

    The best song about teenage love from a boy's POV is the Undertones' "Teenage Kicks" or Iggy Pop's "I Wanna Be Your Dog").

    (The best song about teenage love from an interesting girl's POV is Patti Smith's "Land: Horses/Land of a Thousand Dances/La Mer (De).")

    The greatest pop song of all time is the Chiffons' version of "One Fine Day," by Goffin and King.
    Paradise by the Dashboard Light is a great one for teenage boy angst. Heck, the whole of Bat 1.0 is about a teenage boy's hormones.

    Correct. Everything is either digital, or old-school.

    That being said, I still buy a CD here and there, and it usually comes with a digital copy anyways.

    Edit: my last vinyl album purchased was Pearl Jam's "Vitalogy," since it came out 2 weeks before the CD. Yeah, I loved vinyl, but also wanted to be the first to hear that album.

    "Ether" by Nas.

    If this was Nas' best effort against Jay-Z, no wonder Jay-Z is still going and Nas faded into irrelevance. The rap beefs of the late 1990s and early 2000s were kinda lame.

    That's either the best or worst idea ever. If I have no parameters, it's the latter.

    And get a trial subscription of Netflix streaming, and watch the series "The Evolution Of Hip Hop." IIRC it's about 11-13 eps right now, goes way back to before the beginning. The latest episode gets into the Dirty South (ATL). Guessing crunk/etc will be in the future eps. VERY in depth.

    Stick to Wu-Tang and hip hop in general and you'll be okay.
