Permanent Waves MOFI CD A/B comparison
My MOFI copy of Permanent Waves arrived today and I have been running an A/B comparison between in it and my original CD from the 80's. To put it simply, there is no f*cking comparison!!! I half expected it to have massive limiting and just sound "louder" for lack of a better term. This couldn't be further from the truth. The only words that come to mind are "separation" and "detail". Every instrument is crystal clear and the midrange in particular is fantastic. Geddy Lee's voice has never sounded better. The low end has great punch to it but is not overwhelming. This remaster also has made me appreciate some of the "lost cuts" off of the album; Entre Nous and Different Strings in particular. In fact, if I had to pick one tune that sounded the best in this it would be Different Strings. It is absolutely rich and packed with detail. The piano sounds fantastic. The album as a whole sounds as if it were recorded yesterday.
If this is what the average MOFI CD sounds like, I'm getting more of them. It was worth every dollar I spent to get it. FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!!!
