I think there are assorted comments about this album scattered around the forum archives, but I couldn't find any major discussion about this album. As many know, this album is somewhat novel for being recorded live, mixed straight to (digital) two tracks. To those in the know: Does this really result in no post-production? Just how "pure" is what I'm hearing on the CD? What does everyone think of the sound of this? It has a very '80s digital hardness to it IMO, but it does have a clean, punchy sound. I like it, generally speaking, but that's in the context of all the other '80s recordings I'm used to listening to. And just how novel is this method of recording for a pop album? Any other notable examples? I have the original 3-side LP in my vinyl collection -- but I don't have turntable right now and have never compared it to the CD. Has anyone else? Is the sound of the LP any better than the CD?
