John Lennon 2010 remasters?

Anyone heard these on CD?
I'm hesitant to buy after buying 3 of the Yoko produced remasters from 2002 - they were awful, with heavy volume compression. I find them literally unlistenable.
Lennon's original LP's weren't the best sounding (and he always buried his voice in the mix), but if these remasters (based on original LP mix and analogue master tape) are a noticeable improvement over the original CD reissues, I'd buy some of them.
Thanks

Just played the "stripped down" CD of Double  Fantasy. Yoko explains what she wanted to do with the re-issue, and the re-mix was done with the original producer, Jack Douglas. I was impressed--the vocal tracks were clear, overall balance seemed good. If you are a Lennon fan (I am lukewarmish) I would say go for at least Double Fantasy.
