NIGHT RANGER – Big Life [Japanese SHM-CD remastered]

Some time ago we already featured here “Big Life“, the last ’80s album recorded by NIGHT RANGER in its remastered Japanese SHM-CD version. It was a mini-LP replica limited edition / sold out, but few months after Universal Japan did a fresh reissue.
It supposedly uses the same, last remaster, the same manufacturing process, the same material for the physical disc, but… this one doesn’t sound the same.
Call me nuts, but while the original SHM-CD release delivered a bright sonic spectrum, this recent 2016 feels different; not better, not worse; different… and great.

NIGHT RANGER – Man In Motion [Japan SHM-CD remastered Ltd mini-LP] Out Of Print

After several requests, here’ more from the Japanese High Quality SHM-CD remasters of NIGHT RANGER ’80s albums (all out of print). Here we go with the awesome, criminally underrated “Man In Motion“.
1988’s “Man In Motion” was definitely the album that marked the end of Night Ranger’s bombastic ’80s style. Many people, despite fans of this gente/ style, never properly heard “Man In Motion” or never heard it at all.
You NEED this album in your collection. After a couple of listens it will become an all time favorite of yours. This Japanese remaster on SHM-CD respects the punchy sound of the original vinyl (at least compared to mine) but of course richer on dynamics…
