I'm kind of surprised myself that it didn't rate 100% (which, IMHO would have been a worthy rating!) Considering that you never got to review the original for the site, I figured this was the chance to give the album it's due.

I'm still really impressed with how well the re-records came out - I have to admit being really scared when I first heard about it (so many of these projects have just ended up being at best OK - I'm thinking Loverboy's Rock 'n' Roll Revival as a good example, and at worst, horiffic - as much as I love them, I'm thinking Night Ranger's attempt at this a few years back.)

I shouldn't have ever doubted Harry and Pete though. This thing is just a masterpiece. The additions are mostly subtle (I mostly hear minor differences in the piano/synth parts - there's just a little bit of organ in "Changes Come Around" right before the first verse kicks in that feels so right but isn't in the original), and the ones that aren't feel like they should have been there from the beginning (piano in "Mandy", making "Just Like I Planned" more of a "full" song). The new tracks are amazing too ... I just *love* "World Gone To Pieces".
