I do not dig the remixes for "Liar," "Forgiveness" (dropped synth horns which actually worked well), or "Calumny" (those cheesy chimes in place of guitar!)
I too think of Bad Loser when referencing Bad Journey.

I can hear the re-mix in just about every song on this new re-master.

Ugh! Why do I ALWAYS call "Bad Journey" "Bad Loser"? I never do the opposite, btw.

I love both songs, so I'm not sure why one sticks and the other doesn't. Maybe because "Bad Loser" is the OG "bad" song.

I love both songs too. I have made that mistake from the shores of Gitchie Goomy, to the hidden hills.

I'm glad they replaced the badly photoshopped original In the Meantime cover photo with a normal one. At the time, I remember fans thinking she had plastic surgery. They must have thought the same thing not to have even included it at all in the reissue. They didn't even bury in the back of the booklet!

Christine McVie sounds identical to the 1997 remaster. There's no mention of remastering in the liner notes, so it's probably the same version. The booklet has a "new" photo of Christine, and the band members photos have been removed.

They did. Even when the funny little white car with the broken light appeared.

That is a disappointment I mean, why even bother to rerelease it.

My copy is supposed to arrive Thursday.

I didn't order this either. Shouldn't this album also say re-master 2023?
I'm at a loss. The ITM is fantastic!!

The ITM is a revelation. Ferrone's drums are a real standout here in these remixes. But so is Christine's warm voice. It's so close you can almost touch it.

I don't dig some of the new choices ("Liar," "Calumny," "Forgiveness"), but even then the alternatives open my ears to cool parts suppressed in the original mix.

"Friend," "You Are," "Bad Journey," "Anything Is Possible," and "So Sincere" are definitely improved by this process.
