Reviews: Marvin Gaye: What's Going On

Review by fredblue April 3, 2014 (4 of 5 found this review helpful)
Performance:   Sonics:
A very nice sounding Blu-ray Disc and a dramatic upgrade from the previous redbook remasters (mid 90's, late 90's and Deluxe Edition..) Universal have really flogged this one to death over the years and the sounds never been right thru all those various remasters and reissues.

however, I can say this is the first worthwhile re-release of this album from the label giant.. it's more scrubbed up and pristine with fewer dropouts and less digital grunge and noise than the John Matousek 80's CD (which was previously my go to digital version of this) but it still sounds lovely and natural.

Dynamic range on this Blu-ray is largely intact, mastering compression (if any) is very mild and mercifully, despite obvious restoration, there's no overzealous noise reduction (listen out for quiet spots and you'll notice tape hiss).

Highly Recommended.
