My final and personal conclusion is that the new 2011 remasters are clearer but brighter and louder too, they are not definitive.

Rough Trade vinyl is definitive imho.
Personally i've got used to the unremastered CD versions, they sound great, The Smiths were always about subtlety anyway.

no but the wea reissues were unremastered too. Louder than bombs is my only RT cd I think, though I have a lot of them on vinyl too.

Sure however the original RT have a different mastering.

I'll be seeing someone that knows about these things on Sunday so I'll pose the question bout the varying versions, I own the original vinyl/cds on RT and the new Marr Remasters but can't make a definitive comparison because I don't own the WEA remasters.
It seems that the general consensus is that the least favoured are the WEA remasters and then depending on who you ask and maybe their outlook on remasters verses the original it seems like 50/50. I personally have always favoured the original RT vinyl but that isn't so much a result of the mastering and having listened to the new "complete" versions I must say that I'm impressed.
The obvious concerns with any modern day remasters is that they'll end up as most before them have and be brickwalled as a result of the loudness war, it's interesting to run most modern cd's through Abobe Audition or similar to look at the music in waveform, so many suffer from a lack of light and shade and unbelievably some actually clip or distort.
I'd most certainly be interested in what someone like the Analogue loyalist thinks about the modern trends in mastering although I suspect I have a rough idea.
Just my .2 cents
