Hi guys. Are there any reissues/remasters of Emperor's In the Nightside Eclipse (CD or vinyl) that sound as good/nearly as good as the original CD/LP (I'm assuming the original CD and LP sound the best; however if I'm wrong then let me know Razz).

p.s. Let's ignore the Blood Music reissues at the moment since there's no way of buying the album separately there.

I own the Back On Black double LP (second edition in black vinyl) and it sounds right to these ears.

If you get this version, you can choose yourself:

"Disc 2 / In The Nightside Eclipse, Alternative Mix 1993 (Previously Unreleased)"

The mastering is not really good on the double CD - too loud, compressed and brickwalled...

I have the old CD too, but I haven't compared them yet. The 2XCD release is really good nevertheless, since it features some bonus stuff, old photos, liner notes etc. It also comes relatively cheap.

Yeah, I HATE the production on ItNE. I've got the 1995 Century Black version and it is way too muddy and indistinct. Hopefully, if Blood Music doesn't release the digital files themselves, someone who dropped a grand on the box set will put their supposedly amazing remaster online with a high quality vinyl rip.

I have heard these versions:

Original LP
First Back on Black press (blue vinyl)
Century black CD
Century Media CD

The original vinyl sounds better than the other versions I have. The Bob version on blue wax was my least favorite and I got rid of it. I've heard that the original Candlelight CD is better than the CD versions I have but I can't confirm that myself. I've been thinking about getting the new double CD mentioned earlier in the thread as well. Although now that our resident sound guru has weighed in I'm not sure I'll bother.

It's an important topic but we've been getting quite a few of these posts lately. I'm not a stickler and have the 2004 remaster. Sounds fine to me.

The blue vinyl Back On Black LP sounds very bad I think. The black double vinyl edition has a decent sound. I never heard the original pressing, but I am fine with what I have. This album has no audiophile production and I think there is simply no perfect version available.

This is the one I have too, but it's the only version I've ever known and loved so I'm not sure if I even want to hear another version of it. Might lose some of the magic it held for me in my teenage years and beyond.
