Which versions of tracks do you prefer. I much prefer the Original Master.

Apparently, the original Juzzy version was never released. This is the version I grew up with it.

This 2022 remaster removes all of the warmth the original had and the original sounds less punchier and less louder.

Which one do you prefer? and why?

Yeah that remaster is just horrible, on the same level as the remaster for Solar Fields Earthshine album

There isn't a set rule for when the original master vs. remaster sounds better. Some remasters suck, like Solar Fields' Earthshine. Some original masters are in desperate need of a re-recording/remaster, like M.I.K.E. - Totally Fascinated (M.I.K.E.'s totally mix) and Thomas Bronzwaer - Shadow World.
