ANNIVERSARY reissues of classic albums can physically transport listeners backwards in time, scientists have discovered.
The discovery was made when a scientist fell into his 25th anniversary copy of REMs Green and spent a quarter-century trapped in the eclectic Athens indie scene.
Musicologist Roy Hobbs said: During playback the album becomes a window to the past that the listener can physically squeeze through, assuming they’ve not put on too much weight.
Though obviously it has to be the collectors edition gatefold vinyl.
“With the glossy booklet, and a download code for unreleased tracks that presumably never came out because the band deemed them ‘excessively good’.”
Liam Gallagher plans to leap into the reissued Definitely Maybe and go back to 1994, despite warning this could trap him in a loop of his own creative decline.
Eleanor Shaw of Exeter said: My Deluxe Anniversary copy of The Cures Disintegration became a portal to 1989, when I was a slim teenager with so much going for me.
Actually, I was a sulky goth bitch who screamed at my mum when my clothes werent black enough, so I decided give my sleeping younger self backhanders across the face.
56-year-old music fan Nathan Muir said: “It’s crazy that somehow all these classic albums weren’t properly mastered the first time around, necessitating a new product. I bet the record labels are really angry about that.”
