I really dislike remastered music.
Why do people tinker with classic music? It isn’t for the listener, and it doesn’t improve the record. Sure, it might render it even more hi-fidelity, but it doesn’t make it sound better.
As a lowly, independent writer, even I know that when you get to the point where editing is changing but not improving, it’s time to stop. As an advocate for lo-fi, I know that some of the world’s best music was recorded in mono, live, with a microphone. Music shouldn’t sound like diamond-cut glass.
If a musician is tempted to remaster their back-catalogue, perhaps instead, they should record something new. And if they’re no longer inspired to create, they should go do something else.
Just stop fiddling. It doesn’t make it any better.
