Well, I was cynical, but I do think it sounds better. And much as I bought 'Still Hungry', adding solos and generally messing with the songs didn't really work for me.

I love Twisted Sister, but I gotta say, how many versions of "Stay Hungry" do we need? Isn't this the fourth one? How about a remastered version of "You Can't Stop Rock and Roll." That record was pretty darn good as I recall.

I'll do ya one better...How about a re-release of Under The Blade using the original Secret Records mix instead of that god-aweful watered down remastering job that's out now?

Christian, when Under The Blade was released on CD, it was completely remastered by JJ French. Basically, he added a bunch of reverb, and really jacked up the mid range in the guitar tracks. In the process, he destroyed all the raw dirty power of Pete way's original production. I don't think the original mix has ever been released in the USA in any format. I doubt it ever will be because releasing the original mix on CD would be tantamount to admitting that JJ French's remastering job was a bad idea. Thank goodness I still have my original vinyl copy that I bought as an import back in 1982. The original mix is so much better IMHO. the sound is not all clean and sparkly like the remastered version, but in this case that's a good thing. Sometimes, most times, raw is better.
