Someone else said on here that they were coming out with remastered version of Smash and Ignition? Does anybody know if this is true and can be verified?

Cause that would be awesome...

I haven't heard anything about it. I don't really think they need remastering though, they have a certain charm in a rougher form, and that might not translate if they got cleaned up a little.

I guess you're right, but a lot of the time I can barely hear the lyrics on them.

The Swedish online CD-store says so. See here. (http://www.cdon.com/main.phtml?nav=908&nav_genre=908&navroot=902&name=Offspring&page=search_name&type=1&view_type=1)

I have to say i would be intrigued to hear the remastered versions, however i anticipate that they wouldn't sound as good as the orginals. They do as someone said, have a certain charm where the recording isn't so completely perfect. I think they could risk sounding boring remastered. I could be wrong tho :P

It could all just be a result of a rumor triggered by that Ignition Remastered thread i made a while ago; how reliable are the sites?

If it's only European sites that have presales on them, it might be a Sony International thing.

I might listen to Ignition remastered, not Smash. I'm guessing the first one isn't being remastered as it wasn't popular enough.

No, the first one is property of Nitro, while Ignition and Smash are property of Epitaph.

I'm the kind of person who will buy every LP from a band brand new if I really like them a lot, and the Offspring is that kind of band for me. However, I will never pay for songs I already have paid for, even if they are remastered. I didn't buy GH, and I wouldn't buy remastered albums. I tend to LOVE the sound of the early albums. I'm not a fan of commercially produced music as much as independently produced, as I just love to hear a truer and rawer sound. I *will* pay for live albums, as that is new music to me. I would only ever buy live albums if every band released all their songs live. Unfortunately, that's not an option. In short, I'm not gonna pay an extra like $30 to hear music I already have sound more produced.

Hmm, I recon it would be a pretty good idea remastering them, i mean smash isn't too bad as it is, but ignition would sound awesome remastered. I guess it would sound like Mission From God, that sounds pretty remastered.

Why remaster them? The low-quality of the two CD's is what makes them golden. Fuckin' communists tryin' to decide what we want to listen to!!!! Surely this was not the idea of the band!!!

To be fair, releasing the albums in the first place is sort of telling you what to listen to. If you already have the albums, don't worry about the remastered versions.

Idiot. Listen to your own CD's...nobody is telling you what the fuck to listen to you stupid fuck.

Jesus Christ...it's not like record companies have invested into mind altering substances in the water or brain waves...we'd know because every Goddamn person would think that Sexy Back is the best song alive.

It sounds like Epitaph is in the need of money. And The Offspring is/was the only thing that got them any.

The Epitaph website doesn't have a listing for re-releases, unless they licenced them out to a different label in the particular territory they are advertised in.

Nevermind:

F.U.C.K.

:eek: :( Sorry. Kind of had a retarded spasm for a second there.

So this is true? I don't like it.

This seriously leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Not because I'll actually be dumb enough to buy them, but because...they don't even need re-mastering. :(

Although...the Aggrolites have a new album. :) So "party!" to that. Awe-to-da-some, yo.

I see your point, but Holy fuckin' God!!! Did you have to curse so fuckin' much!?!?!?!? WOW! I was voicing my opinion, you have a contradicting opinion and that's fine. I was simply stating that people shouldn't try to "improve" two great albums. Ironically, they're actually just ruining them. Go sit in the corner and count to ten if you're gonna get that pissed if someone says something you disagree with.

I admit, the raunchiness is charming, but just hearing it remastered would be cool. The lyrics are incredibly jumbled and make the songs sound a bit worse than they really are (especially on s/t.)

"Raunchiness"? L-to-da-freakin'-L-BBQ. These albums are "raunchy"?
