The sound quality was greatly improved.
Unfortunately the rest of the package was less well thought out. The sleeve was a rather unexciting shiny dull blue (although
Virgin attempted to match the colour of the Arista originals), whilst the inner sleeve featured
the same artwork both sides. The quality control definitely slipped on this one.
The first song was incorrectly called Reel To Real whilst most unforgivable was the album's title: Reel To Real Cacophony.
Ironically its release was delayed due to 'production difficulties'.
