I don't have the 2005 original for comparison, but I agree that this sounds a lot better than the 2010 repress - it's punchier, louder and more detailed with clearer separation and a sharper high-end. Would definitely recommend getting this 2018 edition before it sells out. Half a mark off because the printing of the images on the inner sleeve is a bit lower quality compared with the 2010, though the outer sleeve is just as good.

Superior sound over the 2015 pressing. I really enjoyed this iconic record this time.

PS: No skips whatsoever on a Rega P3 (2016) after cleaning the record... Vinyl it's not like Spotify, people; you just don't press play and listen to the music.

This pressing is garbage. There were 10 skips within the first minute of the album starting. Thanks to these reviews I tried cleaning the record with optical glass cleaner and a lens cloth. I vigorously scrubbed it in small circular clockwise motions, then small circular counter clockwise motions. Pushing hard enough that I was worried. But still not too hard. I now report Im down to 1 skip within 10sec of the album then no more skips at all. Still though, this is not what I signed up for when I bought the album.

The 12" included with this album has got to be THE noisiest pressing I have ever heard. I mean, the signal to noise ratio is like 1.5:1. At first, I thought that maybe someone was going for a retro-vinyl sound, but even the sections between tracks are incredibly noisy, with TONS of white noise and crackle. Not cool for a premium product!

I echo all the sentiments below. Overall, this pressing sounds too muddy. There's little to no separation of the vocals and instruments. It is worth buying if you want it as a fan of the band but don't expect an audiophile experience while listening to this album by any means. I am going to purchase the 2018 repress for comparison given that the reviews seem more positive. 5 Stars for the album (a classic and one of my all time favourite albums) and 3 stars for the pressing.

The 'Notes' section says that this release lacks the hidden track "Every Time Is The Last Time", but my copy of this release includes that hidden track in the pregap of track 01, same as the US version.

it sounds good, but there was so much paper residue in the grooves i had to wash the record first.

'Silent Alarm' is perhaps one of my favorite records of all time. What matters in this case is that this one is an unusually great sounding reissue for a 00's record. Recommended

Has anyone just got disc 1? Just found a second hand copy and only disc 1 is a bit beat up
