There have been numerous remastered Queen CD releases, including many from Japan alone. Which releases are the best sounding...specifically ADATR and SHA? I'm assuming that MFSL version of ADATR is the best? I currently own the 1991 Hollywood versions.

I'm quite disappointed with the Innuendo remaster, everything is mixed so low.
Does anyone else have this problem?

I think the 1991 Hollywood versions are the best of the bunch.

I don't know if the distortion is on the recording or the mix they use. Is there a release out there that doesn't have this distortion on it? Or is it simply a misunderstanding and it's from when it was recorded.

The 30th anniversary version is bad if you focus on the distortion thing. But really, it's the best sounding release on cd.

Peace,
Adam.
