Well it's probably been the most talked about upcoming release of 2009 on nearly every music forum. I'm extremely excited about it....almost unnaturally excited as if I'm going to get to hear the music for the first time. But some things have bothered me about the remasters, though I have not heard them.....but I am told that the Stereo release of Help and Rubber Soul will be newly MIXED stereo mixes, not the original stereo mix, and that the original stereo mix will be added to the Mono box. I don't quite understand the point of this and for some reason it really bothers me. If I buy a mono box I want MONO only. And personally I dont really want to hear a remixed rubber soul, but that's just me. Another thing I don't like is the fact that every CD is going to come with a discussion tagged on at the end. I can't express just how highly unnecessary that addition is to me. Maybe to someone else it would be great fun, but it really detracts for me. I was really hoping these remasters would be as close to purchasing the original vinyl records as possible. They really blew it with the stupid addition. They could have made a single CD or double CD to tag along with the stereo box called the making of the records and made an exclusive interview disc for this purpose. I don't know I'm just bothered by this.
