    Oh but those have always been there, just not as prominent. (Sounds like Caton to me? Or is it a synth?)
    The only thing that bugs me about the i i e e e remix is the missing breaths.

    My problem with the alternate mix of i i e e e is that it is too dry. Those songs NEED ambience, atmosphere, the fluidity of reverb. But the song still rocks, no matter what. (and the background vocals actually sound better in the alternate mix.) Cruel is interesting but again, the original mix is superior. Spark was just ruined, for me. Jackie's Strength is gorgeous always and forever but the original is perfection.

    The only alternate Choirgirl that I am totally ok with is Playboy Mommy, because I honestly cannot tell the difference.

    Siren. Please. For the love of all that is holy, I want a remastered Siren.
    Sometimes I think the so-called "experts" actually are experts.

    the alternate mix of Playboy Mommy has more slide guitar which is fine, but I prefer it in the original, and also uses the echoed vocals more, which is overkill for me.

    Actually, I think the Playboy Mommy alternate is the worst. The slide guitar is way too prominent, it gets into cow milking peasant territory.

    Choirgirl is still my favourite so this remaster excites me the most. That whole album is something else.

    I'm afraid I'm gonna be so disappointed cuz it will be probably be maybe one unreleased track or something and the rest just b sides already to be found on singles - while I want a triple pack including demo's, unreleased live stuff and so on and on and on

    I'd love another live disc from the Plugged tour.

    This is going to be an unpopular opinion but I do not care for the Sessions @ W 54th performance. I can think of lots of shows with better versions of those songs.
