Re: Dubnobasswithmyheadman: 20th Anniversary 5-CD Deluxe Boxset
the new cowgirl has a similar level of fidelity to and I will kiss and calibans dream. Comparison to the original master is night and day. This is a remaster done right (by the original artist!). Get it in some form. I notice a difference even in my 15 dollar in ears, it's that distinct.

Re: Dubnobasswithmyheadman: 20th Anniversary 5-CD Deluxe Boxset
While this is just one track, I wouldn't worry.
It's louder, the sounds are clearer, and this is not brickwalled.

Maybe not a huge improvement, but a good one:

Re: Dubnobasswithmyheadman: 20th Anniversary 5-CD Deluxe Boxset
Concord - 6.51
Can You Feel Me - 4.30
Birdstar - 4.51

I've received a promo and can confirm the level of detail in the remastering is brilliant and will be worth the purchase. Dirty Epic sounds much fresher.

The new tracks are complete bodies and don't feel like demos or
off cuts. Can You Feel Me is in a similar vain to M.E and is nice and chilled. Concord could have been on the album if CD had more memory. The vocal has a Cowgirl style effect on Karl's voice to give you an idea. Birdstar is a progressive grove with some nice under effects and is probably my favourite on first listen.

I'm not massively familiar with the live improvs around the time but I'd be surprised if these tracks weren't used to bridge between songs.

For those of you in the US who don't know the conversion. FYI.

i don't know; that looks a lot more compressed to me. far from the worst i've seen, of course, but far from the best.

If it were compressed the difference between the loud and soft sections would be relatively less. The dynamic difference looks relatively proportional to the original waveform.

Looking at the waveforms I can see a few peaks that were clipped short in comparison to the original, but certainly nothing that my ears picked up on and the vast improvements everywhere else are definitely worth it

Amazon US also wants $59 for the Vinyl now. Somehow I ordered it for $32 a few weeks ago when someone mentioned in this thread. Good for me I guess.

Underworld tweeted that if you pre-order from iTunes or Amazon, you'd also get the Cowgirl for free. I don't see on Amazon where it mentions that though. I also don't see the pre-order in iTunes (US).

I believe it is only for digital versions. I believe Underworld's Shop is the only way you can get Cowgirl free now with physical versions.

It's also not available yet on iTunes US. Only UK.
