Descripción del producto
20th anniversary reissue of Mezzanine featuring the original album re-mastered + an album of previously unreleased dub remixes by the Mad Professor. Widely hailed as their masterpiece, and voted 15 in Q Magazine's 100 Greatest British Albums Ever (2000), Mezzanine saw the band move away from the trip-hop sound they had helped define to embrace rock and electronica. Mezzanine was remastered by Tim Young at Metropolis who has worked with the band for over twenty years. All 8 of the Mad Professor remixes included here are previously unreleased and include his dub mixes of 2 tracks not originally featured on Mezzanine but from the same period - Metal Banshee - a dub version of Superpredators which was a cover of Siouxie and the Banshee s Metal Postcard - and Wire, a track they recorded for the soundtrack of the film Welcome to Sarajevo.

The limited listening I did suggests the remaster is a bit less fuzzy, with notes and vocals often a bit more clearly defined and some differences in emphasis on a few sounds. Overall it sounds more refined but it’s subtle. In some ways the rawness of the original has always been part of its charm.
Anyway all was going well until the playback started skipping and misreading over the last 3 tracks. My Roksan Blak CD player seems to be a star tracker and has never played up before so it is the disc that is defective. Hopefully a one-off rather than a large batch of duff ones, but this one is going back for a refund!
The cds are black plastic, which initially worried me, but fortunately my old Technics CD player plays both fine. I consider myself lucky as coloured plastic discs, particularly dark colours, can be troublesome (and the first reviewer here has experienced unacceptable playback issues, possibly as a result). The discs look great, but it's a slightly risky move!
The artwork feels a little less than deluxe, to be honest, as it doesn't really offer anything more than the hardback original edition (similar booklet). The original featured a band photo, which is noticeably absent on this reissue, and overall the basic matt card used, with some template card points still visible/feel-able on the edges) has left me a little underwhelmed. Not even any spot-varnish, which would've been a nice touch.
Sound-wise the remaster is subtle but allows some elements to show through with extra clarity - thankfully no brick-walling (which would have made this material totally unplayable!). A few backing vocals etc did seem clearer in the resulting mix, so an interesting, if not dramatic, change.
The bonus disc of Mad Professor dub mixes are pretty good too, and for many will be the primary reason to buy this.
Can't fault the sound, and this is a classic MA album which few, if any, have surpassed for mood and production values in this genre. Great to have this in my paws at long last, even if the lack of deluxe feel/artwork after such a long wait means I'm dropping 1 star!
This 2017 version definitely sounds slightly different to the original, having slightly deeper, but perhaps looser dub bass and perhaps a little less slam to drums.
It plays quietly and smoothly with little surface noise, so sounds a little more refined than the original.
It's a keeper!
But beware - the black discs are VERY delicate and skip 'as enthusiastically as a little girl'. I found that with the slightest blemish they skip. My CD2 would not play through 99% of the time without skipping so was duff. Obtained a replacement and the new CD1 had the same problem. I kept the best of both and returned the skippers.
Make sure that you listen to them thoroughly before the return period lapses.
P.S. It's all very well having slick-looking black discs but it will be a very expensive mistake for someone...
