you can handle your copy very careful, after a while it sounds used,
surface noise cover an amazing sound !

You can have this pressing on the cheapest needle, the cheapest turntable, the cheapest speakers, and it will still sound amazing.
Incredible pressing, thick, rich, and crisp.

Is this full analog? I'm always skeptical of modern remasters.

Stunning. This is what people want from a reissue - proper remastering and nice thick 180g vinyl.

Can’t stand the orange label with the “BOWIE” writing.. it’s awful..
Parlophone should ask/pay Sony to allow a beautiful RCA label

I have mixed feelings : it's very different from my previous experience with this album.
It's very bass heavy, sometimes even too much. The synthetic "ticklinnes" of the original mastering is nonexistent : you really have to love this overly warm and flat sound, because that's what you get with these recent reissues.
I'm not sure if it was a real intention : Visconti or not, it's a radical departure from the trademark sound (and quite a shocking one to be honest).

Awesome quality. Sound is perfect, packaging is just wow. I've never heard the original pressing, but I think this one is really worth buying.

i ve never heard the original pressing but this sounds really amazing.....
Warszawa is a masterpiece.....

Sound is fantastic on this new edition.
Warsaw is a masterpiece !

Sounded great until about half way through side 1 - Sound & Vision sounds terrible! Seriously flawed pressing or mastering... hopefully a replacement LP will be better - I love this album
