    Have all the 2001 remasters, but I'm looking forward to buy the first six albums again. All of them are fantasic albums. Hope they will sound better this time.

    The 2001 versions of all 3 are still available as cd quality downloads so I'm waiting for sound quality reviews from you guys before I buy. :)

    Just preordered these 3 new remasters from itunes. 12,90€ for each is a good deal. I had the 2001 remasters, but I *need* the new releases (I skip "Release", "Nightlife" and "Bilingual")

    Yes I hope they sound much better then the 2001 versions. I am curious about what source will be used for the main album and also for the FL disc. I do hope they can find the original masters for everything and start fresh from there.

    There was an interview earlier in the thread of Neil saying that they wanted the remasters to sound louder. And the mastering engineer is the same.

    One of my favorites by them. My wife had bought me a 3 CD single box set of this for a past holiday. :)

    I wish. I don't know why they didn't do the bonus material on vinyl as well. Surely there would've been some interest in this.

    Question re the vinyl.

    Discogs says there is a Euro pressing only for these reissues and its mainly Parlophone. Yet, amazon US has the vinyl but say its Rhino.

    Are there US and Euro pressings for these reissues?

    No, not that I'm aware of.
    Nightlife I picked up from Amazon US. It's a UK TimTom cut.
    I do see Rhino on the listing further down. Maybe their handling the imports

    Thats what I was going to say as well. The CDs are the same as the UK ones (pressed in the EU) and imported.

    Probably figured the market wasn't big enough. Makes sense. Kinda neat seeing the UK back in the manufacturing vinyl game. Normally we're seeing MPO,GZ, and Optimal.
    As far as I know Tim Young (timtom) did the vinyl, mastered and manufactured by Metropolis-
