This is a new remaster of the first Lycia album, “Ionia”, that Martin Bowes from Attrition did for them. I would have to go back and compare it to my CD before I could be really sure of any sonic differences, but what I can tell you so far is this:
1. It sounds very good to my ears.
2. It sounds especially good to my ears for being an album recorded on a home analog 4 track recorder in 1991.
3. It’s a really great record that I haven’t listened to all the way through in entirely too long. If you’re familiar, but it’s been a while for you, take it for a spin again. If you’ve never heard it before, but you like dark sounding music, give it a listen. In either case, if you enjoy it, kick Lycia some dough, so they can keep at what they do (they’re still making music), and so Mike and Tara can keep their youngster in action figures.
