My complaint isn't about vintage sound vs modern. It's about the poorly balanced (imo) mixing choices. VM new mix has Syd's guitar buried and his lead vocal sounding like it's being recorded from the back of the room and Scream is lopsided and piercing. The older mixes were much better, imo. Not because they were vintage sounding, but because they were simply better mixes. But it's all just our opinions. Some people like them, some don't. I personally hate them and find it the biggest disappointment of the set for me. I was greatly looking forward to official releases of these tracks, so I could retire the bootlegs. I dislike these mixes so much that I'll continue listening to the bootlegs, despite not being thrilled with their sound quality. Even if I liked the new mixes, I'd still have to re-EQ them to get rid of the massive treble boost much of this set has. That isn't all from the mix as "Matilda Mother" is treble boosted vs its original appearance on the Syd Introduction CD. The singles are also greatly treble boosted vs previous releases (and even compared to the same tracks on the blu-ray/DVD, which sound much better). The treble boost on this set is one of the biggest I've heard.
