Counting Crows and Nirvana - MFSL Remasters
These are the second and third MFSL (Mobile Fidelity Sound Labs) remasters that i've bought, after Faith No More's - Angel Dust.
It seems that the standards of the remasters are a little inconsistent, for whatever reason that may be.
Nirvana's - 'In Utero' sounds absolutely amazing. The whole disc sounds clear as hell, without losing any of it's attack and punch. Kurt's voice is completely distortion free. It sounds so much better than the original.
Counting Crows - 'August and Everything After', on the other hand, i'm struggling with. This is another album, along with Pearl Jam 'Ten' and Soundgarden 'BadMotorFinger', that i've grown up with and know intimately, and i'm listening so closely but I can't tell any difference between this and the original release. The guitars are MAYBE a little clearer, but that's it. Not worth £20 odd quid.
Hopefully the two u2 i'm getting, 'The Unforgettable Fire' and 'The Joshua Tree', will be of the high standard of 'Angel Dust' and 'In Utero'
