Been a Charlie fan since the '70s. Always liked their style of music and their records were always recorded top-notch quality. This CD is very poorly mastered, compressed, loud and distorted, it is hard to listen to with all the clipped maxed out audio. It actually causes the D-A converter in my Pioneer AV receiver to go mute at 4:03 into the first song. Would love to have the music from this newest Charlie offering properly remastered clear and clean like their old recordings. I left a note about this problem on the Charlie-music dot com web site, of course unanswered, no reply. Think I'll crank up "No Second Chance" on the turntable and listen to some GOOD audio!
I love the album, cannot stop playing it at the moment. Terry's songwriting is a strong as ever with a barbed wit I like a lot.
Shame we had to wait so long but well worth it in the end. No distortion problems my end, power and drive yes.
Thank you Terry, hope there is more to come.
Well I waited long and wasn't sure it would happen but lets just agree on that this is a great album. Ok so its not your typical Charlie album and yeah its much heavier sounding maybe even raw but its still Charlie ( Terry ) and its on par with their best work. Forget Charlie the self titled album which let's face it was a shocker, forget In pursuit of romance which was a close second in the crap bin. When I listen to this album I feel like I have just re discovered the Fantasy Girls album and who said there would be No Second Chance. Thanks Terry.
Excellent, excellent album. I keep this one on heavy rotation at my house (and on the road). Any chance of another album any time in the near future?
