- remastering such perfect tracks a year after release is absolutely pointless.
- a lot of the atmosphere (which pretty much made Abel's career) is lost in the remastering.
- the small edits made to the old tracks are also pointless and actually reduce the quality of the record.
- the new tracks feel like second-rate outtakes.
- this travesty is the only Weeknd release available on vinyl (and, surprise surprise, it's ridiculously overpriced).
The music overall is great, sometimes excellent, but this is a highly unnecessary release
with nothing to justify it. Had they added a few new tracks on par with the older songs and
not butchered the original mastering, this might have been a worthwhile record; otherwise,
it's just wasting space on my harddrive.
