I was wondering what the lot of you -- who care to discuss this sort of thing -- felt about 'The Smiths Complete' and 'The Sound of the Smiths' sets
particularily, the sound of both sets, in lieu of Marr and Arkwright's remastering job.
I have heard a lot of banter over the years regarding 'The Sound of the Smiths' sounding brickwalled-to-shit and sounding "too modern", but I couldn't find a whole lot of discussion in the Solo archives
I haven't heard much outside of good things regarding the sound of the 'Smiths Complete' remastering job, and I attest to this
the packaging of 'Complete'...not so much. Some serious errors in the super-deluxe box set which are inexcusable
but I'm interested to hear what you all think because I haven't heard much of any discussion on the matter of either...
