    I'm insane. I just bought 6 CD's that I already own on vinyl, tape, and (un-remastered) CD.

    wee-HOO! I waited till 10:00 AM EST when the local record store opened and I just drove down there and bought 'em all.

    Only cost me $77.68 dollars total. LOL....

    Now it's time to open them and listen to them all here at work!


    Rock On...

    Funny stuff, BC.

    Never would have guessed that a VH fan would buy them all at once. LOL.

    You know, now that you have them all, you've painted yourself in the corner - You HAVE to give a review of which remasters are the best.

    Have fun, man.

    Glenn,

    To be honest I am doing it in chronological order. So at the moment "Atomic Punk" just started. I'm playing the CD's from my PC here at work into my headphones. (I wish I was at home with my Kick Ass stereo System with JBL speakers, 300 Watt JVC receiver and CD player to give these discs a REAL LISTEN.) LOL. But for now Headphones at work will do!

    The sound is AWESOME!!!!!! Completely noticable difference here! Absolutely!...Wow, just heard the solo break in Atomic Punk. It sounded like I could hear more variety of sounds here! Wow! I'm LOVING THIS!!!

    Ah, it just ended..Love that outro. Now "Feel Your Love Tonight" just kicked ON!!!!!!!


    Rock On!


    (More to come in this review as the discs SPIN ALONG! )

    Hey Guys,

    I just got all six and have done a quick run through. They sound f--in awesome. Fair Warning and VH 2 is the most noticeable for me. Diver Down, the kick drum is more prominent that the other CD. Of Course the levels are better on all of them. Fair Warning and VH 2 are a must have if you don't want to buy all six. Vh 1 sounds awesome too, but I already have the 24karat gold disc and this new remaster sounds identical. I haven't listened to 1984 yet.

    These are a real treat for the true Van halen fan that really pays attention to sound. These new CD's in a good stereo system make your arm hairs pop up.

    Peace

    Damn, you guys have me seriously considering breaking down and buying the remasters.

    My original stance was to buy none, since I already have the songs, but...

    (No, I can hold out. I think... )

    I agree about VH2. I'm listening to that one right now. (I'm being nerdy here and insisting on listening to them completely in order) So I have not heard Diver Down yet. (The one Glenn is curious about as far as beefed up sound.)

    More to come...

    Now everyone sing: "Somebody Get Me A Doctor!!!!!!!"

    <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>I'm curious to see how many people buy them who said they wouldn't. Yesterday Brett said he'd only buy 3, but I'm betting he'll have them all by the end of the week. I have to buy them, I just have to hear them.

    I'm pretty set in my ways.

    I don't think I'll crumble.

    (But I have to admit, there's a big temptation. LOL.)

    Hey Glenn,

    I suppose the remasters are released today in Canada as well? I just don't wanna go to HMV and see that they don't have 'em yet.

    I was extremely anti remastering when Motley Crue did it, but I'm not a huge fan of theirs. When I found out that VH were doing it, I was annoyed for about a second, and since then I've been excited.

    The moral of the story? I'm set in my ways too, but sometimes I fold like a cheap tent.

    <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>Damn Vin, you've got me worried. I'm walking out the door in 5 minutes to buy them, if they aren't there, you guys are going to hear some serious bitching when I get back.

    That's as opposed to my usual un-serious bitching.

    I respect the notion of being a "purist" and not wanting to check out hte re-masters. But guys, I'm telling you: If the sound is better and more clearer (which it TOTALLY is) Then why not get them all???

    They will not disappoint, I'm telling you.
    The sound is a big improvement. first of all you can actually HEAR Mikey's bass!!!!!!

    Love it!!!
