Paradisiac songs by THE master
But oh man, what a crappy pressing.....
Mercury are you pressing records with your shoes ????

the most crap i am facing is with ''mercury'' records generally...
I will avoid this pressing company next time and artits should claim for such negative impact on their art

Biggest fault with this release is that some songs are censored...Verse 2 of Money for nothing is missing the entire verse, on the recording that is, the verse is included on the lyrics sheet, so one could sing it oneself I guess... Puritans taking the world...don't like the song, don't listen to it? I dunno... Never thought Mark sang about a homosexual here, rather about a "faggot" (see Southpark about the issue, they have a great take on this problem)...

The gatefold cover of this premium release vinyl lp oozes quality, with a nice shiny picture of a beautiful, iconic, red Fender Stratocaster, reaching up to the heavens toward a threatening sky.The music we all know and love and the sound quality, when played on a decent turntable, is spine- tinglingly clear and spacious and just breathes it's magic all over you. My only gripe concerns the lps inners, stiff card!, believe it or not. Definitely a no no where vinyl is concerned. The lyrics are printed on each inner and a really good job has been done to make this release as good as it could be. So Mercury records, where's the poly inners a release like this cries out for? They should be standard issue with vinyl albums and not an after thought. One last thing, i put my copy into two, top notch poly inners, to protect the vinyl, and then had a bit of a struggle trying to place them inside the gatefold sleeves, without them scrunching up at the corners, another 2mm would've made it much easier to do this. So, C'mon record companies get your act together, a bit more thought is required on your part, not much more, to make these releases the best they can possibly be. Anyway, as an example, i bought, through Discogs, Stevie Nicks's last lp a double vinyl offering called "24 Karat Gold, songs from the vault", deluxe version, and that lp is a gatefold with a lyric insert and nice vinyl friendly, poly inners.lovely. (by the way, a great album).
