My copy skips 5 seconds into the guitar solo of "If You Have To Ask" anyone else have this problem? That's the only problem I have otherwise the record is one of the cleanest records I own and sounds excellent blared through my sound system.

The mastering is a little on the hotter side, but the sound quality and vinyl quality is excellent. This record is dead quiet and the sound is very dynamic. Drums hit hard and cymbals sparkle without any edginess. I didn't h at any compression whatsoever and this record definitely has a great dynamic range, which speaks a lot given the genre of music.

Sound quality is excellent on this remaster. There is lots of discussion online about the amazing quality of the US remaster, the limited edition on Red vinyl and the regular in Black. Happy to say the Europe pressing is top notch too.

It's not a secret that "Blood Sugar Sex Magik" is considered one of the all-time best rock albums. What I consider so special about it is the fact that it's the perfect "concept/sound balance" for the Chili Peppers. What I mean is: Their music has passed through different stages, basically going from fast/furious/crazy stuff to a laid back style (comparatively, at least). While BSSM has plenty of "fast n' furious" stuff, it isn't that "crazy" compared to their previous works. This album is RHCP's very first sign of maturity without abandoning their energy and strength as a band. A must on any rock music lover's collection.

This reissue sounds incredible! They are definitely not lying about using the original analog master tapes. Amazing sound quality.

This album justifies the existence of Red Hot Chili Peppers. Before of after, they never achieved such a complete work, as a matter of fact, it's rare for any band to make a whole LP without any weak points! I can say it even after 22 years since i heard it! Whatever music you are into this is essential.
