Dead Can Dance reissues - not happy

I recently purchased Into the Labyrinth, the Debut, and Towards the Within based on positive feedback.  Well, I am very disappointed in the sound quality.  It sounds forced, bright, and, well frankly, overdone.  Is the MOFI like this or should i just get the originals for a few more bucks?
I would get the UK originals. Into The Labyrinth should be around $100 on ebay or discogs. Towards The Within about the same, maybe a little less.
I don't buy reissues, including MoFi, though I didn't hea DCD reissues.
Timely tip: the original 4AD label CDs but not Warner Bros are spectacular.
