Meh… well ok then

NEW WORLD is their live-dist song from earlier this year. And PRIMARY is not a new song, it’s a new take.

Yup. None of these are new songs. Interested to here the new takes on them tho. New world didnt sound bad when i heard it on YT.

Has “remastering” songs ever been a good thing?

The remaster of Born’s Abnormal Head Machine was good so there might be a little bit of hope for this one

there should be a version without DVD.
The content of the DVD is uninteresting and just increases the costs without really adding anything.

So this is an easy way to catch up then? Lit.

I don’t understand their concept about [BEST OF], these are actually just their [SINGLES / LEAD SONGS] collection,
some of their B-sides sounds so much better than the lead songs… just saying.

Listened to my copy today. It’s basically a collection of singles and lead tracks from their EPs, with their recent live-dist single thrown on top and a retake of PRIMARY. They might have remastered a couple of the older tracks but I can’t be too sure after a single listen.

As a long-time fan who already owns all their music it’s a little disappointing content-wise (the DVD is an unnecessary money-grab; music videos - which almost all of these songs have - would have been better). However, for a newcomer I can’t recommend it enough. RAZOR have so many bangers and while there’s some great stuff to be found in B-sides and album fillers the singles are an excellent place to start.

Sounds a little disappointing. I was quite interested in hearing the remastered tracks because I always thought their tracks would sound super good with better mixing/mastering
Still a really good tracklist for beginners or people catching up I guess though

Is there any official information regarding a release on iTunes, Deezer or Spotfy? Or can it only be purchased through CDJ?
