Madonna

She's right and she should say it.

I’ve just had the chance to listen to the remix album and I’m actually not a big fan of the remastering. I’m listening on Airpods Max which in my opinion have fantastic sound, and the bass is far too heavy for these tracks, and the volume too loud I think. The tracks have just been ‘brickwalled’. They sounded better when listening to them using regular speakers, but the bass is ridiculously heavy on headphones. It’s great that they’ve all been brought up to the same volume and sound very ‘punchy’ and loud, but it’s a bit clumsy.

That is because this isn't really remastered, it's just compressed, boosted and (really) louder. One could do that on Audacity for free.
It works for streaming, I guess. I just wonder how the vinyl will sound...

I assumed the whole set would hit streaming, but this one-disc version is absolutely immaculate. It’s like a cute “What If?” take on her greatest hits, and just a rush the whole way through. Express Yourself bursts to life like I’d never heard it before. Everybody is a super strong opener in this form. Even Like A Prayer which starts a little subdued, really sings by the end in this incarnation.

On iTunes it says the Deluxe version will be released on 19th of August so I imagine it will appear on streaming then too.
 
the Thin White Dick remix is basically a dub though, and they went for the edits in this collection.

There is a promo radio edit of it though. And it's familiar to most people because of the Britney/Christina MTV performance. I don't mind the mix they've included, but for me that swap would have made it perfect.

It’s true there’s radio but it’s not that different from the already released “live” version on I’m Going To Tell You A Secret and the live performance was already released on Remixed And Revisited. She probably wanted another mix for that reason.

That’s not really true. Yes volume is up but there’s clarity that was missing from the original.

You're probably right. And having listened again to the Calderone & Quayle mix, I have changed my mind
and now endorse its inclusion.

the Thin White Dick

I feel seen.
