VAN HALEN - 5150 [Japan edition remastered - Forever Young series] Out Of Print

VAN HALEN - 5150 [Japan edition remastered - Forever Young series] Out Of Print - full

Few people know - even some rabid VAN HALEN fans - that the Sammy Hagar-era albums have been remastered as part of the WB Records 'Forever Young' series. These are the only remastered versions available of these albums, and one of you asked for all to be featured here, all out of print and hard to find.
Let's go with the blast "5150 - Forever Young series remastered".

All Van Halen albums from the Sammy Hagar-era have that bombastic, glossy '80s production, but especially on the first two, the bass presence is scarce, typical from the era.
On this Japanese remaster you get a higher overall (as it is the norm on most remasters) level, but fortunately not saturated / brickwalled.
The waveforms are ever-so-slightly louder than the original US and Europe CDs, but extremely tasteful. The dynamics of the original CDs also appear completely intact.

The bass, which was lacking on the previous CD editions, has been increased, now you can tell Michael's Anthony's 'bass guitar' is there, you can also feel Alex Van Halen's kick drums.
Sammy Hagar's voice is more present and not so buried within the mix, and best of all, no sign of heavy dynamic range compression like most of today's remasters.

You don't need a "5150" review here, what you need is to get this "5150 - Forever Young series remastered".
It's not easy to find a copy and all are pretty expensive, but if you can afford the purchase you'll be very happy. This CD sounds million bucks.
