I hope that they avoided going overboard with the compression, but I am afraid that they've 'remastered' the tracks into oblivion again. I remember looking at the waveforms of the remastered CDs. Having done that I ended up buying the LPs. Rarely do I see properly made CDs, but I have to say that they are slowly returning. Quite a few modern releases look and sound good enough. Hope this one will finally be a proper remaster...

Would be nice to have the 12" extended version of Never Turn Away on the disc. I never really got the track from the album until I heard the extended version - it is one of favorite extended mixes by OMD. I really like the way the melody is deconstructed and then built up - what a crescendo!

Wow, thanks for the link BPC. That's a great version and adds to the song. The endings of both remixes somehow bring joy and make the track really SING.

White Trash. If they wanted to remix and re publish any track from Junk Culture as a new release, look no further. Brilliant and mastered right, radio 1 would play it.... Just a thought

I haven't heard the NTA picture disc version for a long time until now! I remembered the different ending but it was so much more powerful than I recalled. Beautiful, beautiful song.

Thanks for this. Brilliant rendition and perfect for this gloomy Saturday.

the first time i heard the pic-disc version i felt it should have been on the lp instead of the 7" edit...

Try listening to the CD with your ears instead of looking at the waveforms :)

The best song is "Her Body in my Soul", it's astounding!
