Brilliant music - Bone-head mastering job June 2, 2007
Written by caruso
This is such a welcome addition to the Fripp & Eno discography. I was immediately driven to download it when I realized it was out. The music is superb. Sublime. My gripe is with the mastering. Most tracks cut off before they are actually finished, only to continue when the next track begins. This could have been easily addressed at the mastering stage very easily with proper planning (cross fades, etc).† When I have the time I will remaster these files myself they way they should have been mastered in the first place, with proper stops and starts for my own sanity.
If one wishes to charge full price for downloads to have all of the revenue go directly to the artist and bypass the middleman for downloading (ie: iTunes, etc.) I AM ALL FOR THAT IN THIS CORRUPT CORPORATE GLOBAL DOWNWARD SPIRAL OF A WORLD) but a least give the consumer his or hers moneyís worth! And donít short change the independent musician (like me) either.
Fire the mastering engineer for f@#ks sake! If you guys want a real mastering engineer, please contact me.
DEAR CARUSO, This Cd was mastered as a continuous piece of music, and therefore crossfades were made between each track to achieve this. The abrupt ends, and then continuation, will, and should only happen with the mp3s. If you have downloaded the higher quality flac, this should not happen. Please let me know which you downloaded, and I will look into it. Sincerely The bone-head Mastering engineer (stormy)

Download the FLAC files (they are lossless), convert back to WAV, and burn a CD. People have been doing this for years.

This is the pure stuff. As spooky as An Index of Metals, with 13 hyper-cosmos worlds to explore within. Perhaps the most potent and deeply mind altering vibrations that conciousness allows.

Studio-sweepings of Masters, and worth hearing in that sense, but one wonders if perhaps in the bad old days of Record Companies, the company would have either not released this, put it out as filler on a single (hence marginal Read more
