Note to Graham - its not a critism of the Accession that it digs up that level of detail - far from it.  It's simply demonstrating that some of the recordings that are intimately known old friends are not quite as good as I had thought.

Good front end as you say.  If you keep both you can have the best of both worlds

Sometimes albums you love are not the golden sonnets you remember from your youth, maybe those are the ones you listen to while talking with friends or doing some work and save the good stuff for the the headphones or 'listening' sessions.

I have found a lot of my 80's stuff is not what I remembered.

.... although I have just been enjoying my birthday present a Yazoo boxset, but perhaps that should be in another thread.

I have spun my Lexicon of Love this evening and pretty much as I remember it, tight, crisp and punchy bass with a projected/forward mid/vocal area which can be a little OTT at times.  With my recent experiences of the Accession MC I quite suspect this may bring out the best in this as I found it actually more forgiving and less forward (maybe that is the point Graham has made about his former views of MCs) though ‘the look of love’ has never sounded better in my system.

I must route out my Yazoo 12” singles and album too.. I think it is a valid point to say a lot of 80s mixes were quite similar but (to my ears) preferable to the few newly recorded albums I have bought over the last 5 years.
