PostSubject: Reissues of reissues   Tue Apr 03, 2018 3:30 pm

Have you all seen the reissues of bands like Daniel Band and Barnabas?  Do you keep buying new versions?  I liked the remastering job that Cliffy did?  Are any of the reissed reissues worth getting?

The bigger booklets have been mentioned to me as a selling point.  I really don't care about all the extras.  I rarely even listen to a CD these days.  I buy them And rip them to my FiiO.  What do I need with a bigger booklet?

I wish there were some way to do a side by side comparison.  I don't really want to rebuy music I already have unless there is a daylight to dark difference, you know?

I am curious as to your thoughts on this.

I only buy the reissues if I own the original and I expect that the reissue will have superior mastering and possibly decent bonus content (or I don't even have the original).  I refuse to keep buying reissues of albums that were already reissued 5-10 years back when I have the first reissue.  (Haven, Stryken, Daniel Band etc.).

I don't bother with the re-issues unless it's the first time I've purchased the album.

I have bought a few like the first Ransom album and the Fear Not one just because of bonus tracks.  I won't rebuy the Daniel Band or Barnabas albums.  I am fairly satisfied with the versions I have.

I picked up Ransom because I never purchased it before.  The Barnabas re-issues that I listened to didn't make that much of a difference so I'll stick with the copies I have.

Oops, I saw "reissues of reissues" and thought it was a Saint thread.

Yeah, I usually pass unless it is a significant improvement over what I already have.

Unless it's something I didn't bother to pick up because of poor quality the first time around, or if there is major improvement over the original I don't worry about reissues....I don't need 3 or 4 copies of the same album.

I only try and keep one copy of each album, and when it comes to reissues I only tend to buy them if there are good bonus tracks on there.  I'm not really interested in demos of existing tracks or live tracks.  I can only think of a couple of albums that I have more than once (Tourniquet being one of them).

Still I am partial to a nice insert with great pictures and the lyrics.  BUT that isn't enough to sway me if I already have the album

Ah...now the rarities and unreleased material will sometimes qualify as enough of an improvement to me.

If, and I say a big IF, those rarities and bonus tracks are of a decent sound I might rebuy something.  Most of the time, though, the extra tracks are such poor quality that they are not even listenable.
