Are the Rock Candy Remasters worth getting?

Postby Penguinpc » Tue Jul 26, 2016 3:33 am

I bought the first 3 (Toto, Hydra, Turn Back) but only because I didn't own them on CD already. However, I already have IV, Isolation, Fahrenheit, and the Seventh One, but they are all original (I guess) pressings. Will I notice any significant differences between the Rock Candy remasters and the ones I currently own?

From what I understand, they're louder, but not really better. They were also done without any input from the band.

Your best bet is still finding them on LP. There's never been great sounding Toto on digital formats, IMO, but the original LP's still sound fantastic. It's possible we may get remastered, band-sanctioned reissues soon for the 40th anniversary, so I'd wait and see what that brings.
