I'm listening to American Idiot HD now, I like it. I must have listened to that album literlly at least a thousand times since it's release and I think I can easily tell any change of it's sound, this is so vivid. I'm sitting here listening with my Bose earplugs and it sounds like the vocals are coming from behind me, it really pops. The beauty of this is clearer with the less distorted parts of the album, any clear guitar, acoustic and piano sound very good.

OP is right, nice find with the TV noises in Homecoming.

since everybody is now giving a fuck about the hd remasters, I thought I'd post a video on how it was 'remastered' for those who are interested

Has anybody got the HDtracks master of 21st Century Breakdown? I'm considering getting it, but I'm not sure how worth it it will be. I currently have a ~1MBps ALAC CD rip in my iTunes library, and don't know whether I will really notice the difference that much.

Yes, absolutely. The HDTracks version of Breakdown is absolutely incredible. It's a bigger difference than American Idiot. The dynamic range is massive, everything is a lot more punchy and the sound field isn't over saturated, so everything had room to breathe and the guitars just explode. Get it. It's made me love the album again after I got bored of it due to the production.

Thanks. I didn't notice too much of a difference with AI (apart from homecoming obviously). I can hear a bit more acoustic guitar, and a bit more bass, but then my speakers were always pretty good at picking up bass.

 

I wanna do a proper comparison. I'm gonna listen to the cd and then hd tracks on my laptop. My laptop speakers aren't as good good as my ipod ones, but I can't play the cd on those, so doing it on my laptop is the best way to compare the two sounds using the same speakers at the same volume.

Good idea. Just bear in mind that the lack of compression on the remaster means the actual file is quieter, so you'll have to compensate for that as things generally automatically sound better just for being turned up.

This sounds really cool, but I don't have $25 to drop on these, especially if it's just digital.

I have a lot of mixed feelings about these tracks...it makes the songs a lot easier to learn by ear on guitar, but it reminds me a lot of the musical version, so it's not all too exciting. 21st Century Breakdown, the song, sounds so cool, I don't know what I like so much about hearing the vocals so loudly in music, it makes me get really emotionally and flashbacky :P

However, I really like the, for lack of a better word, punch American Idiot had originally. It fits the story line and the album a lot better, in my opinion. Plus, if you listen closely, you could already hear the tv, I've always noticed it, but I guess it's one of those "once you hear it, you'll always hear it" things. There's just something I love and hate about clearer versions of tracks like these, that I really cannot explain. Maybe it depends on your mood :P

I'd love to hear a HD version of Nimrod! :lol:
