First time on vinyl for this monster album, and it sounds even better. I've become wary of vinyl reissues because not only are they often mastered from digital files instead of the master tapes, all too regularly they are cheap, noisy and warped pressings with tons of imperfections. I've bought four of these Enigma vinyl reissues and I must say say the sound is a delight, and the vinyl is good: heavyweight and quiet. I've seen a few complaints about noise but that was not my experience. I did exchange one because it was scratched, but that was obviously a packing mishap.

The Sound is louder on this record than on the first 2 'Colours...' edition albums.
The sound quality is absolutely beautiful. Big deep bass, warm upper bass freqs and low mids, gorgeous hi mids with very nice dynamics I don't recall noticing as much on CD copy. Beautiful full sound that does this music justice.
Can't compare to any earlier vinyl editions as only had on CD before this.

The sound on this one is great. The only thing - have you noticed? The side B label (at least on mine) is from Voyager album :)

Flawless! Of all the Enigma reissues I've heard so far, this one is by far the best-sounding. And it's a great thing too, as this album is just phenomenal. Love it, and it's great to have Enigma on vinyl!

No problems with my copy. Good inherent volume and to my ears sounds like it has more depth than the CD... I can /feel/ the music more.

My copy has some crackles in every song on side B. Bought another copy and it has the same problem. Both cleaned before listening. More people with this problem?
