I just listened to a few tracks last night, and it is quite good, actually.
I haven't heard the stereo version since some time in the 90s, so I had a fresh slate. the mix won't knock you off your socks, but it's not bad, just not that aggressive for the most part.
I think this thread raises the question of how much comparing back to the stereo version should we do, if any at all (meatloaf anyone?)
BTW--Where does the notion come from that a MCH mix has to stay true to it's stereo predecessor? Did you lose your stereo version, or are you somehow unable to play it anymore? If you answered "no", then you'll be OK
