Is the master good enough or different enough to warrant purchasing the HDTracks version over the Red Book CD?

This was actually the last R.E.M. album that I bought (though there are still more in my future, since I still don't have Eponymous, Reckoning, or Around the Sun on CD) when I picked it up at a local record store last weekend. Good choice, and one of my favorites that they've made. I believe that New Adventures in Hi-Fi is probably also my R.E.M. favorite album art.

It's Friday. Time for some Afrobeat. Come Friday night... more Afrobeat.

"Green" is my favorite album, but "New Adventures in Hi-Fi" was the last great R.E.M. album, after the departure of Berry have lost that magic spark that made them unique.

 

and yes, this is my favorite album art too :beerchug:

I actually quite like the first couple of albums after Berry left, since the remaining members got quite creative with drum samples and other methods of percussion. I think they went out strong.

Ioan Gamboa - Sparkles

 

Very much liking this. The original mix is wonderful. Asten's remix is… perfection. The Reimu remix is magical.

 

MEISHI SMILE - LUST

http://shop.attackthemusic.com/album/lust

 

Oh how I love this album. While I await the vinyl to arrive in the mail I'm enjoying the new digital version with bonus remixes. The album is available as a free 320kbps MP3 download for those who don't want to pay for it.

 

MEISHI SMILE is an electronic project that derives influence from genres both equally pop and experimental, taking note from the cathartic afterglow of harsh noise, mixed with the joyful idealism of Japanese Pop and hazed out by the meditative sentiment of shoegaze. Together these range of influences present a sense of musicality that is oddly warm in its static disconnection.  

A “meishi" is a Japanese business card. A formality masquerading as emotion. Mixed with the word "smile," the two together form a meaning that aims to explore the very dual nature of the human experience as filtered through the digital divide. 

MEISHI SMILE's first album LUST sets out to explore the cycle of human heartbreak. An existential question of what it means to feel guilt, love and loss. A sentimental, yet obsessively sad piece of work that struggles to find acceptance and redemption throughout its own realized chaos.

"Red Letter Days" - The Wallflowers - One of the few pop SACDs I have, this version is pretty much identical to the redbook in my opinion.

Never understood why they remastered that or changed the cover. Liked the original just fine.

 

Sixteen Horsepower Folklore playing on my end. One of my favorites from the early 2000s. Sounds pretty great on headphones too :)

 

 

 

Followed closely by another 16 HP favorite ....

 

 

And now onto this one, they don't really get any better for me ... New Order Power, Corruption & Lies ...

 

 

Followed by this classic from Baaba Maal & Mansour Seck, one of the most beautiful records ever ...

Chris Jones - Long After You're Gone, simply stunning acoustics and great overtones.

Hey Davey, yeah, why did they change the cover! I have to check out " Baaba Maal & Mansour Seck!' (Edit - I just listened to " Baaba Maal & Mansour Seck," you continue to amaze me with your impeccable taste...I bought it, thanks!)
