this is one of my favorite EPs of this variety of all time... but i do agree that the sound of the original is better. maybe this will sound extra good on vinyl though, if that's what the re-master was for.

I'm not sure what he means by that, but I wouldn't doubt that the sample was taken out due to copyright issues. When the EP was free, it didn't matter.

Both the album and EP are excellent. Bummer they coudn't secure the rights to the F&G quotes, but I'm still happy this even got pressed. I picked up Opaque Green & Pomegranate Red.

Is it me, or do these songs sound a bit slower? I think these recordings take away the energy that the songs once had. The mix of the second song sounds totally different than the other ones; the vocals are buried underneath the guitars and bass. Overall, this is a bad remaster.

Not the same without the freaks and geeks. Meh, I also just prefer the rawer sound the old ones had.

I guess I'm one of "those kinds" of fans, because I think the original sounds better too. Oh well.

some fans will always prefer rawer/demo type stuff, especially if that's what they heard first. I think the remaster sounds great because I can actually hear the guitar parts and bass lines a lot clearer and hear the song composition better throughout.

The way you said it, it just sounded like you meant it was a bad thing that people like the original recordings more. I don't see the problem in thinking that.

And I'm not talking about the Freaks and Geeks sound bytes, I've always hated those. Glad they're gone.
