David Bowie - Lodger (+ 2017 Tony Visconti remix)

Hi FBC. What's the verdict on this? Still not heard it myself.

Hard to make a judgement, as 'Lodger' is an album I've only recently started to fully appreciate, and after playing it again on the original vinyl I thought I'd give the new mix a listen on Spotify Web Player after having read about it in Mojo last year. So firstly it's not an album I've immersed myself in enough to detect major differences, but apparently Visconti pulled out all sorts of things that got lost in the original mix. And secondly, the quality on Spotify seemed to lack the crispness I assumed the new version would have, so maybe you need to get the actual box set for the full effect. I imagine if you know the original inside out the new version would be quite revelatory.
