Very nice @jim ! I liked the "looking through the fence", there's an obscure album reference there!
I'm like Necko only I'm a bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin and also everyone. Or is everyone me? Now I'm a confused bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin everyone who is definitely not @Joe. This has been true for 2016 & 2017 but I may have to get more specific in the future.

I didn't like many of the 2017 remixes upon first listen and having relistened listened to them thru speakers and headphones, I'm still not impressed. The two 'Sgt Pepper ' tracks (opening and reprise) are decent but the rest are meh bordering on dross. 'The worst are ADITL', which has lost all which made it so unique in the mix resulting in a pointless listen, and 'Within You, Without You', which for some reason now has one Indian instrument drowning out all the others altering the entire song for the worse.

Totally agree with "A Day In The Life
". It sounds cleaner, but kinda lifeless...not very well glued together. The orchestra's crescendo sounds so clear and polished that it really loses effectiveness at the end... and the transition between the "Ahhhs..." and the last verse is a bit bleh...even Ringo's drums sound a bit limp...
Anyway i like how the vocals and background vocals sound clearer and punchier.

I listen to music via the app Apple Music ( I meant by the Apple company, odd coincidence, isn’t it?) and I recently saw that there is an album called Sgt. Pepper ’s Lonely Hearts Club Band Remastered Edition. So I clicked on it, and it seems to be the same album but with songs like Penny Lane and Strawberry Fields Forever added to the end of it. All of the songs are supposedly remastered to sound better quality, but I can’t tell the difference. Any thoughts?
Reporter: Beethoven figures in one of your songs. What do you think of Beethoven?
Ringo Starr: He’s great. Especially his poetry.

Might I direct you to this thread
A ton of people discuss their thoughts on the new remaster. One notable thing is the isolation of each channel, so instead of hearing the album with four channels featuring multiple layers of reduction mixes, Giles Martin (son of George) was able to mix each channel independently to create a “fuller sound”
The release also comes with some great sessions and outtakes unheard before 2017.
