Anyone else experience similar?
Listen to Exit and Mothers of the Disappeared, those are the two tracks that have the biggest difference. Plus the whole album is A LOT louder overall, I don't know how you can't notice that

Remastering an album isnt about making it louder....its about bringing the different dynamic ranges to the fore. Even if it was louder, am not going to notice, as i will still listen to it at the same volume as the previous version
Having a good audio setup can let you pick up a lot of detail you might otherwise miss. So....I guess am saying, i havent heard anything new to my ear. Al maybe buy the older recordings and see if i can hear a difference.

But you will notice as if you play it at the same volume level it will be louder, and if you lower the volume to make it play at the same level it won't be the same as there is increased dynamic range compression and clipping on it, meaning that the volume difference is noticable overall and really effects the sound.

Again listen to Exit and Mothers of the Disappeared closely, those are the two tracks with the biggest differences, and I'm not just talking about volume levels. With good quality headphones you should be able to hear the differences in the other tracks too.

I'm actually surprised by the quality of the U2 remasters even for all the crappy clipping they introduced to the songs, overall they do sound a good bit better...then again the original vinyls are probably what sound best

Beneath it is also written that there will be a Super Deluxe, Deluxe, CD, Vinyl and a Download Version with B-Sides, rare and unreleased songs as well as videos and movie footage.
But it is unknown if this information is relating on TUF or the old Remsters which are also shown on this bag. Looking on the photo it will have the size of TJT Box-Set."

Interesting...

Woah. I never buy Giant DVD Poster Deluxe crap but I may just have to. U2's live playing circa early 80s + the songs off UF has to = awesome.

And by now, you all realise that come Oct. 28th (when I finally get to see them ), the setlist will have 6-7 tracks from the UF in it.

Of course, this is just wishful thinking, but maybe a night with Pride, the Unforgettable Fire, MLK, and Bad could really happen.

Doesn't say anything about a concert release like Paris though, I was hoping for that.

I can't wait for the Pop remaster. It would be sweet if they "finished" it like they always said they wished they had. They could release a two-disc set - the original and the "finished".
