Yep, as I have said before, I like both of Steven Wilson’s Steve Hackett remixes, but the DVDs are so disappointing!Thanks. As it happens I'd just finished confirming that for myself before I signed on here.
FWIW Wilson's mixes here (5.1 and 2.0, on DVD or CD) aren't compressed with respect to dynamic range.
The original mix offered here on CD appears to be a different mastering than the 2005 remaster, but it's still very squashed (just slightly less so than the 2005).
Unfortunately there is no 'flat transfer' iof the original mix n this set, the closest we can get would be the first CD issue.
