'The Big Sky' on the 'Hounds Of Love' remaster is a different arrangement than on the CD I've always listened to.

The remaster appears to use the 'Special Single Mix':

Not a big thing but I prefer the original album mix:

The single mix is a bit slow to get going, I feel.

It’s been very exciting to hear all the positive feedback around the Remastered project and the lyric book. Thank you so much for embracing both of them. It means a great deal to everyone involved.
       I didn’t do any interviews for either project hoping that the work could speak for itself. I read some articles that included a number of inaccuracies and usually I don’t respond. However I do feel I need to address one story which came from a phone interview I did two years ago. I was very disappointed that the use of a quote out of context was timed with the release of the live album and it seemed as if the focus went onto the quote rather than the work. It was deeply frustrating. At the time I discussed the idea of responding to it with close friends and we all agreed it was best to let it go. It seems the quote keeps being used and so I’d like to present my side of the story. Over the years, I have avoided making political comments in interviews. My response to the interviewer was not meant to be political but rather was in the defence of women in power. I felt he was putting a really negative slant on powerful women, referring to a witch hunt involving Hilary Clinton. In response I said that we had a woman in charge of our country, and that I felt it was a good thing to have women in power. I should have been clearer when I then said it was the best thing that had happened to us for a long time - because I greatly disliked the behaviour of the previous PM, who at that point I felt had abandoned us and everybody felt angry and let down.
     Again with no response from me to the latest resurfacing of this article, it could make it seem like I am a tory supporter which I want to make clear I am not.
          I won’t be commenting further on this, but feel it’s become so pervasive that I felt I needed to clarify this matter once and for all.
  Happy New Year,
          Kate

The real racism is anti-white racism, and civilisation will collapse if we continue to ignore racial IQ disparities.

Had a proper listen to the Aerial remaster at the weekend and it sounds amazing. Like a brand new album even.

Fantastic levels of clarity, separation, dynamic range and timing. All the remasters i've heard have sounded excellent, but Aerial has been a real standout.

Other than 'Suspended in Gaffa', which sounds sensational, I'm not a big of The Dreaming at all I'm afraid.

As far as my hifi set up goes, the remasters sound great at lower volumes. However, once you start increasing the volume everything takes on a hyper real quality, the sound just come alive. Very impressive.
