one other comment about the Frontiers reissue:


It’s almost a whole different song?!?!?! They CHANGED the sound of Neal’s guitar completely and brought Jonathan’s keys forward into the mix (keyboards? This song had THAT MUCH of a keyboard line??). It’s no longer the guitar-heavy post-modern angst thing — it’s almost jangly.

I compared the original with the reissue version to make sure I was hearing it right — holy crap.

I’m not sure I like the difference.

It’s quite a LOT like seeing the “special edition” Star Wars when you grew up loving the original films — okay, yeah, nice, but DAMMIT, quit SCREWING UP my FAVORITE MUSIC!!!
