This review is specifically aimed at the latest DSD Remastered version of this CD. The vinyl album itself was first released in 1969. The songs themselves represent several periods of growth in the Stones' music. It also coincided with the death of Brian Jones and is dedicated to him.
I collect vinyl records and buy CD backups of each title. I cringe at the thought of digitally remastering original analog recordings. This is largely due to the awful remasters done in the 1980s when CDs became the favored medium for music.
However, the newest methods are able to represent the music as closely as possible to the original sound. I was shocked at the quality of these new masterings. They are as I remember them to be on vinyl.
They may cost more than the 1980s remasters but are well worth the price. I recommend not only buying "Through The Past Darkly" but also all of the Stones' titles available using the DSD Remastering process.
