Remastered Supertramp? Crime of the Century?


I've seen remastered versions of all the Supertramp CD's. Does anyone know if they sound better than the orginal versions?
Or is this another ploy for consumers to buy a product again and sound worse like many of the new remastered products?

I have the remaster of Crime of the Century and it has pretty good sonics. My guess is that it is better than the original CD release based on the date of the original CD release. A lot of early CD releases were horrible.

Sorry, but I don't have an original for comparison......

Enjoy,

It is better than the original CD mastering. Due to better digital chips, processing and electronics the new one is more refined with better dynamics and overall cleaner less "digital" sound.

How does the new remastered cd compare to the MoFi gold cd?
Thanks

I have the Japanese LP that sounds a bit better than the MoFi LP.
My listening impression is that the re mastered version is significantly better than the original, and I have both. I also have the MoFi LP, but that is not as good.( not as dynamic) The original LP is close, and the Japanese LP is even better than that. Over all for digital, the remaster is well done and very worth it..-Ken
Right, Quite Right, Bloody Well Right!
I just bought Crisis? What Crisis? and the new version is significantly better than the orginal CD I owned. So I plan to upgrade all of my CDs at the local CD Trader!
Any plans to issue it on vinyl?
Crisis is already on vinyl. You may have to find a used copy.
