Upgrade that Mirah album to "I like it a lot." It gets better as I listen to it.

I got the remaster of Nine Inch Nail's, Pretty Hate Machine. It's actually a pretty good remaster. I was afraid it was just going to be made louder with more compression. It's actually a new mix down, and while louder it seems to have the same (or maybe slightly better) dynamic range. The drums are obviously not compressed much at all; they are really punchy.

Thanks for the mention of the Tron soundtrack. Daft Punk has always been fun to listen to and this soundtrack is no exception.

Yesterday I had it cranked up and turned my ep500 up a few notches and WOW this soundtrack can REALLY RUMBLE!

I'm listening in PLII mode right now on much lower volumes (wife is still asleep) and it still sounds great.

Very cool. They're available here on YouTube.

Oh yeah, that's a good album. Have you heard Imogen Heap's Speak for Yourself? If you like Jem you should also like that.

Wow.

So. Much. Bass.

It also has some amazing orchestral work combined with the electronica. Not a massive dynamic range, but better than most CDs released these days. Would be neat if they do a BD-Audio release, but I'm not holding my breath.

I've actually be looking forward to this soundtrack more than the movie. I was not let down. Except I wish the tracks were longer.


I listened to some samples yesterday and liked what I heard. Just ordered the album from Amazon. I'm looking forward to having it accompany me on my drive to California for the holidays.

I actually look forward to loading up the CD player for the long drive and blasting some tunes. Although, I find myself speeding up with fast music.
