This is a must buy! Even if you have the old cd version, the crispness of this album lends itself well to remastering. I think this is a masterpiece album, and I bought it as soon as it became available. The sound is so much better. I keep turnung it up until it hurts my ears. Its one of thise albums that you just cannot turn up loud enough. As for the second disc, is is pleasantly interesting.The cult hero songs are pretty good, they sound like 3 imaginary boys songs. The demos are interesting as well; the live stuff is ok too, but the real reason you MUST buy this is for the album SEVENTEEN SECONDS. Anyone who knows the Cure know this album is different than the rest. Very sparse instrumentation. The first REAL Cure album. It is so crisp! The remastering intensifies the emotion of the album. I also bought Faith and the other one released today, but I must say this one impresses me the most. I have a soft spot for 17, BUY IT BUY IT BUY IT! Thank you and happy belated birthday, Robert!
