A lot of people also dislike what Sandy did with Dream Syndicate. Compare Karl Precoda's guitar especially. On Medicine Show it's practically arena rock compared with Days of Wine & Roses. The remaster of GEER is interesting because some of the songs sound more, well, human, played by a band. More like Cost of Living, which makes sense as two of those tracks were overdubbed versions of Rope outtakes (Groovy Times and Gates of the West). I'm enjoying it a lot.
