An Up Side & A Down Side

I had recently had my car broken into and all of my CD's were stolen. Came across this deal here and re-purchased my VH collection (or at least Part of it). I was excited because this also claimed to be the 2015 Remasters. So, first things first. The sound and remaster is Excellent. Not over compressed or hitting the audio wall. So, the actual audio I give 5 stars. Now, the down side. There are No bonus tracks of any kind. Nothing special. which was a disappointment considering how much stuff is probably in the vault yet to be released. Can't really complain about it though, since I knew this before I purchased it. I only bring it up because it seams like a missed opportunity to add value and seel more copies. Well, maybe Someday. Lastly, the packaging. If you nostalgic about how CD released looked in the first few years of existence, this will bring you back, because it's exaclty the same. If it weren't for the sticker on the wrapper, you'd have a hard time distinguishing these from the originals back in the day. The booklet appears to be exactly the same, nothing special about the package at all. I guess you could say, the physical media costs less than the download, which again is odd. So for all this I give it 1 star. I sincerely hope VH releases a proper box set or something, sometime in the near future.
