Guilty [25th Anniversary Edition DualDisc]

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - William Pearl
A quarter century after its initial release, Guilty holds up as a Streisand masterpiece. Sounding better than ever after having been remastered, the album stands as a perfect collaboration between one of the great singers of our time and one of pop music's most creative songwriters and producers, Barry Gibb of the BeeGees. With Gibb adding characteristic background vocals and dueting with the diva on two tracks, the pair constructed a wildly popular work that ultimately went on to become Streisand's top-selling album. The hits sound as epically intense as ever: "Woman In Love," "What Kind of Fool," and the brilliant "Guilty," which could be a smash if released ...

Sounding better than ever after having been remastered, the album stands as a perfect collaboration between one of the great singers of our time and one of pop music's most creative songwriters and producers, Barry Gibb of the BeeGees. With Gibb adding characteristic background vocals and dueting with the diva on two tracks, the pair constructed a wildly popular work that ultimately went on to become Streisand's top-selling album. The hits sound as epically intense as ever: "Woman In Love," "What Kind of Fool," and the brilliant "Guilty," which could be a smash if released tomorrow. Streisand is in sweeping voice throughout; rarely did she ever sound as vibrant and deliciously loose as she does on this career landmark. Little wonder that she and Gibb were drawn to collaborate again, 25 years later, on Guilty Pleasures.
All Music Guide - Rob Theakston
Twenty-five years after its initial release, Guilty still managed to hold a special place in Barbra Streisand's catalog as one of the best-selling and most beloved records of her massive oeuvre. And with very good reason, as it's also one of her best. Much of this can be attributed her choice in partner; producer and then artist of the moment Barry Gibb. His attention to detail and smooth songwriting were the perfect vehicle to branch Streisand into the disco era further than her duet with Donna Summer on "Enough Is Enough." But conversely, none of these songs is a full-blown disco anthem; they're ballads safe enough for Streisand to keep doing what she does best combined with Gibb's disco-laden songwriting, arrangements, and production that were the hallmark of his softer work with the Bee Gees. Needless to say, the experimentation of the hybrid paid off: "Guilty" went on to win a Grammy, and "What Kind of Fool" and "Woman in Love" were also sizeable hits. This DualDisc edition takes the original classic album and remasters it, along with the DVD side featuring interviews, rare video performances, and a sneak preview of the forthcoming sequel to the album, Guilty Pleasures.

    Guilty As Charged

    This dual disc has mediocre sound quality despite the fact that it is remastered & it is not PC compatible, which means that the tracks on the CD side cannot be played on a computer or transferred to a portable listening device.
    I bought this product to replace the original version of the CD I had (35DP7, CBS, Japan) released in around 1982 (apparently one of the first CDs ever made) because I expected that the remastering process would have improved the sound since those early days.
    These comments apply to the CD side of this dual disc - I am not interested in the DVD side.
    I use a studio mastering grade DAC & ATC speakers, so my system provides very clean & analytical (i.e. detailed & uncoloured) sound.
    The remastering has made the sound quality of this great album worse, not better. It has spoilt the effect & the main appeal of this production, which was the presence, clarity & airiness of Barbra Streisand's fantastic voice rising above (in volume) & in front of (in sound stage placement) the background instrumentation to result in quite a realistic sensation of her actually being in the room.
    The original CD mix did this (which was a testament to the original production quality) but the CD side of this dual disc does not do this & is very disappointing.
    This dual disc renders Barbra Streisand further back in the mix & her voice is not rendered as cleanly as on the original CD - it sounds slightly rolled off in the top end as if 2nd or 3rd generation masters may have been used.
    As is typical with most remastering these days, the volume is higher on this CD than on the original, but unlike most remasters, it is not cleaner, it is slightly muddier & the vocal / instrument mix has been altered sufficiently to rob the sound of the magical & sparkling quality it once had.
    The result is that the appeal of the original album has been lost.
    Barbra Streisand is no longer in the room with you a few feet away, she is now singing through a shroud alongside the rest of the musicians.
    This surprises me a little because normally Sony do a reasonable job with their sound.
    Unfortunately, this one is an example of either corporate incompetence or insensitivity.
    If you want to hear the magic that this album can reveal, or if you want to enjoy the benefits of computer playback or be able to transfer the music onto a portable device, stick with the standard CD version (e.g. the 1990 version which is still available) & avoid this dual disc altogether.
    PS - After writing this, I also bought the 1990 version of the standard CD still available online, but I am afraid to say it is mastered similarly to the dual disc, which is why I have edited this review with this final remark. Neither are mastered as pleasingly as the original 35DP7 disc, so I guess I will stick with what I had. If you have the original 35DP7 disc, stick with it save your money.
