My The Next Day fatigue

Tony Visconti - after two months I can't even listen to The Next Day:-
(wait for it through cans.

And believe my I've tried.
The initial iTunes audio stream was absolutely atrocious;
The 256 bit iTunes masters were only a little better.

Yeah - I rushed out and got the CD
i I ripped them lossless,
but still my tired ears complain;
Big Time.

In desperation I paid for the music again:-
the official 24 bit masters at

A little better again, but still compressed beyond comprehension.

Mr Visconti - I know the iPod changed almost everything,
and today almost everything is sampled on phones.
I know the tin buds of iEverthing s
can't handle a real dynamic range.

But - Listen!
Even today, the punters buy "Heroes" on CD or iTunes,
the hear the music live and breathe,
hitting the highs
healing the lows
and I love that.

Is it too much to ask for an audiophile edition,
for all the loyal guys and gals who love David's music?
People who treasure the decades of David
Who don't think earbuds are good enough,
Would would like to hear a wonderful piece of music
Day In, Day Out
without straining to hear David's voice of the mix.

Is that too much to ask

The 24 bit cuts are still hopeless compressed,
Why is that? Please explain.
Tony, the 24:44.1 masters of Station to Stare are pure heaven.
More Please!

In the mean time I play TND on good speakers
at Maximum Volume.

Playing cd/albums on speakers

Totally agree about sounding so much better on speakers. I like my Ipod so I can commute listening to music but nothing beats albums on speakers Don't forget Ziggy to be played at maximum volume. happy.gif

I do love the album, but theres definitely something not quite right with the recording. Most notable to my ears on If You Can See Me. The vocal sounds distorted and muddy sad.gif

Love On.

Does Hunky Dory sound brittle?

The CD that came with the vinyl sounds a tad different to the regular CD release. The vinyl is definitely mellower and less loud to my ears.

Where Are We Now on vinyl is as good as anything he has done. I think the album illustrates that he is still capable of 'knocking off a Life On Mars?'

'mellower and less loud'

I bought the Zeit set and prefer the the sound to ryko/emi '90 versions.
Can't understand why they're held in such contempt really.
