Your poll's a bit screwy, it makes you pick the last option even if you have indeed listened to it. Consider adding an option in the third question that says "I have listened to it, though."

You gotta fix your poll.
Can't answer to the negative of the last question.

Anyway, yes, I have listened to VT Remix. It is many times better than the original. Knocked the album a few ranks up in my overall list, to be sure.

I can't vote in the polls because you have to vote in each one or the votes won't be registered.

The Remixed version is a huge different!

I got a headache when I listened to the first version, I could not listen to the whole album at once, had to listen to two-three songs and then take a break.

But now when I got the Remixed version... a great album! One of their best albums ever! I love it!! :) Everything sound so clean and perfect!

Mixing and Mastering are 2 very different processes.
In mixing they take all the recorded tracks and pick and choose the best bits and pieces and place them (volume wise) in the right place sound wise.
In mastering they take those mixed down tracks and make sure the levels for all the songs are the same and index all the tracks so they sound like they belong together


THIS IS NOT A TECHNICAL EXPLANATION!!!
This is just so the lay-person can have a basic understanding of the difference between the two processes!

I had the exact same problem with the original release.
I loved the songs but I couldn't listen to it for long and certainly not at high volumes due to the aural fatigue the poor production caused.

The remix is a vast improvement - I hope that David Bottrill works on any future Rush endeavor (love his work with Tool, King Crimson & Peter Gabriel.)

I really like a few songs on VT, some I am kinda meh about.  But the remix definitely kicked it up a few notches for me.  Oddly, I used to dislike "How it Is", but I actually kinda like the remix version.

And lets not forget there are at least 2 Richard Chycki remixes that are separate from VT:R
Earthshine (for sure) and I believe OLV.

Yeah, the two on Retrospective 3.

I didn't like those remixes, in fact I liked them less than the original VT. It sounds like all they did was just increase the mid frequency and leave everything else the same.
