Are new Rush remasters better?

I went to my local music store and found that my favorite band Rush has come out with brand new remasters of all of their albums. They remastered (and repackaged) all their CD's. They're not special edition or anything, these new remasters simply replace the old CD's.

I'm curious to get opinions on how much better they sound (if they do) to know whether it's worth it for me to replace my existing CD's. Posts I've read elsewhere say some are bigger improvements than others, but I want the audiophile opinion.

Of course, I'm a little jaded after reading a few posts on here about CD's from the store vs. BMG. The computer tests show they are digitally identical, but people swear they hear differences.
I haven't heard them all, but I have compared the Moving Pictures regular release to the remaster and the MFSL Gold CD. The new remaster sounds too digital and lean....a little hot too. The MFSL is unbeleivable and is as close as you are going to get to the vinyl release. Worth locating one and worth the money if you really like the album.
You know whats funny? Nobody else has your ears. Why dont you buy one and make a decision on your own? I mean, what are we talking here 12 bucks a piece give or take. Nothing against asking others for opinions but like the first sentance said.... You have your own ears dont you?
Can someone please remaster Lincolnl please? He sounds a little harsh and not nearly bright enough.

Alright, fair enough about ponying up $12. But it's a legitimate question since there are 13 remasters, and some are probably much better improvements than others.
Matt8268, how do you know that some are probaably much better improvements than others unless you listen to them for yourself. I didnt mean to sound harsh but I hear so much talk about this articile and this review but in the end I like to rely on my own ears. If I am perhaps remastered would that make me a MasterLinc or a RemasteredLinc?
I do appreciate your point of view. Using your own ears is very important. Just keep in mind that if the ONLY solution needed was to trust your own ears, there would be no need for an Audiogon discussion forum. There is another goal which is to gather feedback and therefore not break the bank acquiring good sound.
Agreed. Although it still brakes down to one thing. YOU!
I wish lincolnl would use a dictionary-I mean when your spelling one syllable words incorrectly there is a problem.
I think they should re-master all onto DVD-A or SACD.
I would personally love to hear 2112 multichannel.
I have re-mastered version on redbook but i got it
after BC DAC2 so i can only say its the best ive ever
heard cant say how much of it is because of re-master.
Wow...yea Lincolnl sounds a little mad at the world which brings me to a point I have. I think Matt's question is valid personally to me because I'm so sick and tired of spending my money buying cds today that are recorded too hot and driven into distortion levels including a lot of remastered cds (alot of which is in the lower bass ranges). What is up with this!? Does anybody out there agree with this or do I have an over-sensitive ear for distortion. My equipment validates what I'm hearing because everytime I bring a cd home and play it in my cd player and I hear clipping or distortion I immediatly take the cd out and play it in my Marantz Professional cd recorder (which has led meters) and sure enough the meters are going well into the red!! Do the engineers or whom ever is responsible, know the very basics when recording digitally, which is not going over and into the red, or are they intentionally doing this to get our attention on the radio (louder is more noticable).I don't know about you, but this really irritates me and I cannot listen to the cd again (and since you opened it your stuck with it) I can lists so many cds that are like this in which I've wasted my money, that I think this subject deserves a seperate thread. A lot of these cds are in the pop category but I'm seeing this creeping into alot of other styles also and it has been going on for a few years. I can lists many many cds that are like this. Of course the better your equipment the more noticable this problem is. I've decided since the recording industry is putting this kind of stuff out I'm not buying another cd unless it's something that I've already heard or previewed or is a recording from sheffield labs, mobile fidelity,etc. and other reputable artists who have more controll over the whole process. Sorry for kind of getting off track I need to take a cold shower to cool off.
Are there newer Rush remasters than the one's that say "Remastered" along the left side of the case? Those remasters were done in 1997 (thereabouts). Being a huge Rush fan myself, I own the MoFi's of the albums they remastered and the "remastered" (as described above) of the albums not released by MoFi. The MoFi's kill the remastered in every respect. I still wish MoFi would have put out "Permanent Waves" and "Farewell to Kings". MoFi's 2112 is tops as is "Signals".
The remasters aren't as good as the MoFi's but thy're a big improvement over the old cd's they replace. Well worth the $12 in my opinion.
I just bought 2112 (teenage favorite, oh, those party days), and I am totally enjoying it. I will admit that I have not heard the recording in years, but I know what a decent recorded CD sounds like, and this one is pretty good. If the MoFi version is that much better, another purchase is in the works.
