Does anyone know if the vinyl is the same quality as the vinyl in the special editions? It looks to be the same, just the special edition has a lot more extras included with it...just looking to get the best sounding copy...any help?

So, i heard before this was one of the best albums around in terms of mastering and pressing, i have to say the expectations were met: it sounds fantastic. A must have for every audiophile. Even if you're not into this kind of music, just to test your system! :)
I am super happy.

Great pressing, although I really don't think it sounds as good as mentioned in the earlier comments. The mastering is a little bit compressed which makes the bass sound quite muddy on some tracks.

Nothing bad to say about this pressing. Amazing sound and the gatefold cover is beautiful.

Solid album overall, but a bit uneven. Good musicianship for sure, but I personally would have preferred more disco material, instead of just 3 songs.
"Give life back to Music" is my favorite on here, but needs an extended 8 min mix.

The sonics are a bit muddy in the low end dept...not crisp sounding.

After five years, this has become the record I use to test a new stereo. Nothing to beat it! Also love that, "If love is the answer you're home" is etched into the final side. Genius album!

This an amazing album Daft Punks best using aspects of Disco, Funk , with their trademark electronic sound. It sounds great too a few crackles here and there but nothing too distracting.

One of the best-sounding vinyl releases I've heard so far. Well mastered, and clean pressing.
