I have just received my copy of this CD and it is really good. My only reservation is concerning the track 'RETURN TO FAITH'. This is a beautiful track but I find the Golgotha sequence sounds a bit 'woolly'. I listened to the SAE CD again and, unless it's me, I think it was a bit sharper on this recording.
Any comments, anyone?

Are you saying that the FSM disc sounds better than the new Kritzerland version?

Not in any other tracks, Paul. Overall the new recording sounds brilliant and is better than the SAE one. It was just this one track which seemed a bit 'woolly'. Perhaps I am just getting too fussy in my old age.

Hi there,

Sorry if this has been covered elsewhere... if it has, I couldn't find it in the various threads.

Just opened and put on the new Kritzerland edition and the very first track sounds like it's kinda warped... like the speed is fluctuating a bit or something. Is this an "age of recording" thingy and all the copies are like this or have I drawn the short straw?

The rest of it sounds okay so far (just got up to track 8), but the first track sounds really variable.

Any comments on this?

Hi Warren,

Yes, I know what you mean. I notice it a bit during Diana's Theme but it is better than the same track on the SAE version. Obviously the original tapes are quite damaged and it's a good job that both SAE and now Kritzerland got to work on them before they were completely destroyed.

Hi David,

Thanks for the prompt response. At least I know it's not just me.

Cheers.

I don't really know what "wooly" means - all I can tell you is that Mike Matessino labored mightily on this release and he has performed wonders. The wow on track one is much less than it was and it only lasts for about two to three seconds. I don't think there's anything on the new release that sounds "worse" than the previous release - it's all much better to my ears, and believe me, I went back and forth constantly. It's night and day, really, thanks to the new technology.

Yes it is, and I'm also grateful for the additional tracks. If original stems no longer exist I wish all archival recordings would include M&E tracks, if available, as was done with Kritzerland's 'Demetrius.'

The original Demetrius cd was done by FSM, not SAE.

The clips sound the wrong way around.
