I still prefer this over the later vinyl releases. Mainly because the track "Exodus From The Underground Fortress" has a sweet guitar rift going on.

I bought a copy of this the other day, which did have the sticker on it, but exactly the same barcode and is an EU Milan pressing but the French/EU flags have been been removed from the back cover. The run out matrix is also different and machine stamped: BH97933-01 A1 HL. The labels are virtually the same as the other ones with the 30th anniversary sticker except where they say "Distributed in France" the machine stapmped one says "Distributed in France and Benelux". Is this technically a different/later version?

The fact that this is advertised ‘with download card’ not specifying that the download is NOT music, but a PDF is extremely misleading if not a downright scam. I thought there was something wrong with my code at first and was shocked to find out there wasn’t. So ridiculous.

I bought an original sealed copy. Sounds good. Exept C1. There is a loud crackle in the middle of C1 for more than 15 seconds. (Can anyone confirm this?) ... The record itself is great. One of the best soundtracks.

Black vinyl (dont believe the hype, it's often better, as it is here).
Digital remaster, but well done and the original master was already digital, so...
Artwork alright but doesn't deserve it's 30th anniversary edition sticker since there is nothing fancy here plus this version doesn't have the code for the pdf (even though it's already a cheap move to only offer a digital booklet and no download code for the 'better' US version).
Anyway, it's still a major success.

I still own the JVC CD version of this soundtrack. Was going to upgrade but apparently it's been mixed differently sound wise and from the issues with the vinyl think I'll pass.

This manga, this movie, this score...Same power, same poesy. Always. It has changed my life when i saw and hear them as a kid circa 1993.

I didn’t think it was obvious here or from where I bought this edition, but the download card is for a PDF of a 26 page booklet, not MP3s of what’s on the LPs. I wish it was the other way round - would make more sense and is generally the norm - but there you go. Still a long overdue and essential vinyl re-release, and the packaging looks great.

Mostly great quality throughout except for a few small issues as detailed below:

Regarding quality. On some of the tracks on C and D there were some pops and distortion noises in the recording itself it seems. After cleaning, still there, but no visible cause of them even under very close inspection, so seems they are recorded on noises for some reason. 3 small pops at two points in one of the tracks during a quiet section, but don't sound like dirt or damage pops would, but still definitely don't belong there in any case. Then at the end of the last track of the D side one of the finale sounds is distorted unlike the others.

excellent pressing! the inner artwork is a little low resolution, but otherwise it's aces across the board.
