    Binaural & Riot Act sound beautiful!!! ST needs a bit of help, but not a remix. 
    Agree - Binaural is the band's best sounding record.
    Cork-Eddie-17 Chicago 1&2-16 Miami-16 Ft. Lauderdale-16 New York City(Colbert,Sound Check,Show)-15 Moline-14 Detroit-14 Amsterdam 1&2-14 Chicago-13 Noblesville-10 Grand Rapids-06 Grand Rapids-04 Auburn Hills-00 Auburn Hills-98 Toledo-96

    NO SAMPLES, KEYBOARDS OR SYNTHESIZERS USED IN THE MAKING OF THIS RECORDING....

    I think Binaural could be cleaned up a hair. The BOB versions that were released back then of the Binaural songs sound much better than the album mixes. I really have high hopes for it. But Binaural is my favorite. 

    Agree on Riot Act. It's a great sounding album. But I'm always willing to give a new take a chance.

    Oh, me too, me too. Just want to hear what the band's rationale was.

    Is the OG Ten a straight up repress?
  • ledveddermanledvedderman Posts: 7,373
    Yeah man. I'd like to hear that. I don't think it's any secret the band was never big on the released version of Binaural. I remember hearing of a lot of push and pull between the band and label which lead to the new mixes on the single, various track lists, etc. 
    Riot Act, I'm not sure. It doesn't feature much studio trickery since it was mostly recorded live. So I'm curious what a new mix can do. 
    And for self titled...well, if it sounds like crap to our ears- I imagine it's brutal to the ears of those who created it.

    Riot Act is PJs best sounding vinyl in my opinion. It is excellent. Binaural is very good but ST is so loud and shrill at times it is hard to listen to. I'll look forward to that reissue but I'll be surprised if the others improve

    Excited to find out. BoB has been very busy that's for sure. I see what @MedozK was saying months back about the OPs retaining their value/worth/status. This new box has  a hodge podge of 'versions' for what its worth. 

    Ten: Will it be the Bob 2008 remix/remaster? Or the remastered original mix? 
    Vs: Safe to assume it will be the 2011 remaster/reissue
    Vitalogy: Same as Vs. 
    No Code: The 2016 remaster/reissue
    Yield: Same as No Code. 
    Binaural: New 2017 remaster/reissue
    Riot Act: Same as Binaural
    ST: Same as the previous 2. 
    Backspacer: Original 2009 mix/master
    Lightning Bolt: Original 2013 mix/master.

    I think these will be new cuts for Ten, Vs, and Vitalogy, pressed at MPO like all the new reissues.

    So @MedozK do you see this box as the definitive vinyl cuts for all PJ vinyl to date? Saw you bought one (figured you would!).

    Nope, not till I hear them. Hopefully new cuts will be better.  A definitive Vinyl cut thread, would be a good idea. Might think about that after these are released and critiqued.

    I know they are. And all three are have been remastered and remixed. I have a 'B minus' understanding of both concepts. :lol:

    Very Important- Sorry for the mistake. ONLY "Pearl Jam" A/K/A Avocado has been remixed. The other two have just been remastered.
  • Its the remixed piece that has me the most curious. What about the instrument placement in the mix will be different? What will be added, subtracted? Brought up or down in the overall 'landscape' of the songs?

  • Guess it depends on how unhappy the band was with the original mix/presentation to begin with.

    This is great. Thanks, Tim. If there was one album that needed a new mix, it's the self titled album.

    Will there be digital versions of the new masters and mix?
  • RubysdadRubysdad Posts: 132
    Yes. There will be digital versions.

    great news. can't wait for these. 


    Should I assume the Vs/Vitalogy pressings will be the newer ones that sound better than the 2011 reissues?

    Hopefully. Fingers crossed that these are new cuts.
  • Will love to hear the remixed version! Hopefully it's less "loud".

    I would have liked to have heard a remixed Binaural. But I guess it defeats the purpose of how it was supposed to sound

    Interesting... ST was the only record BOB didn't mix. Looking forward to hearing his take on it. Adam Kasper's work with Soundgarden was phenomenal but despite ST having great songs- the mix didn't age well.
