|The general consensus is that they are very good remasters considering the rest of what is out there. It is practically a small miracle that they do NOT suck since they are remasters and modern releases in fact. Some say they are better than the 1986 Castles (more punch and power), some say they are a bit behind them (less natural sounding and slightly more compressed). The extras are essential of you are a huge fan just to hear the songs from a different angle. I am strongly thinking of getting all of the Deluxe versions just to have the extra material and because I will always have a place in my heart for Sabbath. My first real concert I went to, and I was never the same|
Hi; I'm new around here but I've been searching the net for exactly this info, basically I'd like to ask anyone here who has heard them, which is the best sounding version between: Black Box, Japan 2007 Box or the new Deluxe Editions? of maybe a combination?
Thanks in advanced for the help.
|Not even close: The new Deluxe versions. Only the first three albums have been released, but it has been confirmed very recently by Andy Pearce (the person responsible for the new remixes) that the Ozzy era Sabbath will be remastered in its entirety.|
Decided to place order for Deluxe 3 Disc version of Paranoid
Amazon sellers have it for $18 new
I have the Castle CD "album replica" boxset to compare it to
