    That's not the remastered one. I checked. You see why it's confusing?

    Checked how? I would not go by the clips, because they usually re-use samples (so you don't hear SH's mastering for AF titles, for example, nor do you get to download that version after purchase).

    I was under the impression it’s getting a digital only reissue.

    I don't think that's quite clear yet. Have you seen specific language?

    Nope, Orphans will be released on vinyl. Word is we'll get separate double LPs for Brawlers, Bawlers & Bastards.

    ASIN number. But also, if you look at the release date, it doesn't match.

    But the ASIN brings up the 180 g remastered version on the international Amazon sites. I wouldn't pay attention to the release date, it is correct at Amazon Japan, for example.

    It is advertised as the 180 g remaster, so, if it isn't a Prime customer can return it at Amazon's cost.

    I haven't listened to the new remasters all the way through yet, but has anyone else noticed any other new overdubs, besides the trombone on Table Top Joe, on anything else? Just curious.

    I purchased both Alice and Blood Money @ $11.98 each a week ago. I was expecting the "old" releases (figured they were blowing them out at the reduced price), but, much to my surprise, the copy of Blood Money I received was indeed the new remaster. Alice was, and is, out of stock, but I would assume it is also the latest release.

    Just my $0.02...

    So the bonus tracks will probably remain exclusive to the original box (7th LP).

    I just bought Bad as Me reissue. Hard to tell this and original apart. Same everything, but I see 2017 etched in run out.

    I'll try and point out some specifics I noticed other than less compression/more air. I know that the Last Leaf original has Keith's harmony vocals louder and as a result sort of feels a little crowded. The new version sits him back slightly to allow more focus on Tom, and so it is with a few songs: Something comes slightly forward or something sits slightly back or there's more air. I think it's a more pleasing listen BUT I know the LP back to front so maybe those differences count to me. This isn't a remix and so any changes are subtle... also the vinyl is much quieter.

    Ok, also after listening again to a couple of tracks it is still subtle but obvious to me. The louder tracks are more fatiguing to listen to on the original; I never really enjoyed Satisfied until I heard the new version - I don't wince when I'm listening. The slower songs have more space between the instruments and they are more pristine - not in a sterile way, just more dynamic. Maybe you loved it the way it was but because I always had niggles that stood out to me when it was played from beginning to end, I immediately knew I was enjoying it more. I then went about analysing why, but I admit, it's subtle but totally worth it to me. I've listened to Bad as Me more in the last few weeks than I ever did before so it can't be placebo.
