Well, this is well worth stumping up for. I never noticed anything wrong with the original FOC... until I heard Chris Kimsey's remix! Now I don't know much about mixing albums but suddenly there seems more space for the instruments and it makes the original sound claustrophobic.
Worth keeping them both, of course, but I can highly recommend the new version. A real breath of fresh air. Plus two discs of demos and live tracks. The Communion version of The Field is still amazing.
