What's in a "remaster"?

An interesting article about remastering for all audiophile buffs out there. And for the casual listener as well. Should I buy these songs one more time if I already have the vinyl and/or a CD version?

Timesonline: "Do the song remain the same?"

The article is based on the new remastered Led Zeppelin-collection Mothership as it is compared to the 1990 remasters and the original vinyl.

Food for thought and after reading the article we can only come to the conclusion that the art of remastering is a mix of technology, philosophy, personal taste and business.
