I haven't listened to the older CD's in while, but I do remember the remasters sounding punchier to me. Of course I'm sure that's due to compression. One thing I hate is how the intro to that track Powerslave is at the end of Back in the Village, I never understood that.
Roy Z hinted on his personal facebook that he's working with Bruce on some new material. He posted a picture of him and Bruce, I asked him him if they're writing new music together and he "liked" my comment. He's made other hints elsewhere as well.
