Must-have for audiophile listeners. Powerful and rich sound. Great dynamic, combined with an impressive stereo image. Clean + quiet surface - very good pressing. High quality release. Recommended!!!

As a mater of fact, I find that release not worthy for it's cost. But hey, this was 50th special edition for this wonderful album so, it has to be purchased. Comparing the original relaeses that I have in my collection, I don't need to listen this release. Just a additional record to my collection.

Stunning clarity, and noticeably different. After several listens to familiarize with the new mix, it really is a joy!

For those in the US -- this seems to have gone out of print. Before you order one overseas, it is worth checking Best Buy out of all places. You can check their inventory for this record online. A couple of stores near me still have some in stock.

Mistake!
I only have the Anniversary edition with one LP.
But the mix should be the same.

I am very disappointed by this mix!
I compared this edition with the original PCS 7027 and the German Odeon SHZE 401 from 1967.
This version sounds much deeper and bass heavier than the old ones.
The highs are strongly reduced. The record is also quieter than the old ones.
The old editions have a driving, forward pushing sound. This edition is perfect in sound but loses the character of the old pressings.
During the whole time I had the feeling as if the record is played a little bit too slowly.

Terrible mix. Much too loud. Avoid this one and get the mono version.

Now THIS is a remaster! The original stereo mix of Sgt. Pepper had significant issues, none of which enter into this new master, and overall, this is just a flawless piece of vinyl (or two). They went all out with this remaster, and this release in general. From the 1/2-speed mastering to the sturdy recreation of the original sleeve.

The second LP is an excellent companion, and it's always great to hear Beatles sessions, particularly remastered Beatles sessions. But the real treasure here is Giles Martin's 50th anniversary remaster of the original LP. The precise and dynamic presence of each instrument is remarkable, and reverent of the original mono mix, but expanding it to a whole new level of sonic depth and clarity.

Seldom do remasters truly astonish me. Frankly, they're more likely to frustrate, or downright infuriate me, than to impress, let alone astonish. The new stereo mix of Sgt. Pepper is nothing short of astonishing.

Whoa, now this is different! Mono, “Look oooouuut! Cause here she comes!...She ain’t no dancer!”. Giles goes boldly where George never had to, “fixing a hole where the rain got in”, in Stereo that is! “Sgt. Pepper...” in Stereo finally sounds right, standing toe to toe with it’s counterpart in Mono.
