While the music contained on this album might not be some of Quo’s best, my review is mainly for the remastering and sonic quality. The only people on the planet who will ever read this, are you, the Status Quo fan. You already know all about the music. This review goes out to ˝you all˝, the Status Quo ˝fanatics˝, who are contemplating dropping some cash on this purchase. Do it!! Tim Turan has done a fabulous job with all these remasters and ˝RAOTW˝ might be the crowning jewel of the lot. Like I mentioned earlier, musically ˝RAOTW˝ may be one of the ˝frantic fours˝ lesser moments; and the sound quality on past releases (even the vinyl) did drag the album down a bit. The remastering job here does just the opposite, it actually makes the album better. I can write about brightness, sonic nuances, warmth & tone until I’m blue in the face and still just be scratching the surface.
So enough already, just add this to cart now. You might as well buy all the Status Quo remasters now and save on shipping. You’re eventually going to buy them all anyway, so now’s as good as time as any!
