One good example was the Deftones reissues, '180g heavyweight vinyl' they said. Well let me tell you there is no way they are 180g, outright lie. All marketing, same goes for re-mastered. As soon as i read that it is a byword for passing and finding an original.
First off you say "Mastering and production quality is what decides ", ie the quality of the final product depends upon the mastering. I think it also depends on the quality of the vinyl used and the process controls in place... amongst other things.
and then you go on to state that re-mastering is a marketing ploy.
So what are you saying ?
and out of interest, how much did your Deftones re-issue weigh ?
