Midnight Oil: Midnight Oil
Midnight Oil is an exceptional debut release that should be in everyone's collection.
This review was based on listening to the remastered edition that is available on TIDAL Hi-Fi. While I have never heard the original release, sonically Midnight Oil is appealing and doesn't cause listener fatigue when listening on speakers. Headphones, by comparison, will bring you closer to the recording, but it does tend to present a shallower soundstage that is a little more jarring. This is most likely a result of the remastering process rather than the original recording. That said, I find Midnight Oil to be one of the few rock-based albums that can be enjoyed at any volume level. Seriously, try to listen to AC/DC at any volume below 60%. Yes, it's doable, but the experience is lacklustre. That certainly isn't the case with 'The Oils' debut release.
Overall, I find that I am enamoured with Midnight Oil and if this album is any indication, the box sets are going to be well worth the investment. - MARK GREENTREE April 2017 subjectivesounds.com
