Fiat Lux - Hired History Plus

I received the CD on Saturday and people should have no reservations in buying this . Although not an expert, to me the sound quality is excellent . I have not played all of both discs yet but sound is crisp and clear and not over loud.

Great to have this finally on CD with all the extra tracks

This is so typical for this forum.
For over 30 years, New Wave fans have been whining about a digital release of 'Hired History'.
Now that it's finally released and no one bothers to comment about it.
Oh well, on to the next unreleased recording.
Unfortunately, I don't have the expertise to comment about the sound quality of the disc.
At this point I'd even be up to reading one of -1's stellar half illiterate reviews.
"lots of synths with nice drum beat i give it a 8 overall"
Over the years on NWO, I thought maybe I'd meet some "cool people" into New Wave,
but mostly I've come across defensive maladjusts with O.C.D.
(Now watch this thread fill up with posts)

I must admit oldwaver2 I was expecting a lot more posts on this subject now it is out , a number of people have fought quite hard to get this released and the end result is excellent quality and a lot more tracks than I ever envisaged. Cherry Red have done a great job on this one in collaboration with the band

I completely agree. hired History is great to hear.
But I have my problems with Saved Symmetry. The songs, although from a complete different category, suffer, to my opion, the lack of freshness and uptempo beat of the older material.
As said it's from a complete different category and for sure need some extra listening to be valued on their value.
