There is no accounting for taste, but I believe most music aficionados / audiophiles will prefer this high resolution remix of Sgt.Pepper’s.
Interesting article by Chris Connaker on his Computer Audiophile website. Chris points out that he doesn’t have a history with this album; he was born eight years after it was released, and never really cared for it.
This is a topic that many people have written about. My feeling is that the original mix is the one I grew up with, that I’m familiar with. While the recent version may be “better,” it’s different; it’s not really the same music. But for someone who didn’t live with the album for many years, I can understand that this newer mix would be better.
Definitive? I don’t think so; it’s all relative to your experience with the music.
