The sound is superbly crisp in the high end but feels a little weak in the low end. Not much bass on a raw speaker output unless you artificially add it with a subwoofer or such. I cant compare with other releases so perhaps they are all like this, I have experienced the same thing with old and new Led Zeppelin albums and they never really had great bass back then either, its just that its more noticable on the remasters with brighter high end. There seems to be some sound separation issues as well, with instruments that could sound clearer. What I can say is that the press is fine and sleeves just great looking and feeling. I was surprised to find the inner containing lyrics and the original cover "rape" image. Its a good release of the album but if you can find one with better reviews about the low end then go for that instead. Its remastered pretty well but still sounds digitally sourced, like a CD.

My review for a 1987 release: https://www.discogs.com/Guns-N-Roses-Appetite-For-Destruction/release/9769131
Coming from the newer 2015 remasters I have to say its a bit of a different experience. The remasters have that digital aspect to them with great detail but mostly so regarding the high end and with a harsh edge to everything. This is more balanced but a little less clear in the sound. Perhaps its unfair to compare an at best VG+ or so copy to another mint release, so bare that in mind. One negative aspect about that is of course that you want to increase the volume because the music is great and that now being possible due to the balance, but at the same time increasing the pops and crackles. Luckily its mostly noticeable during song transitions. Whatever you prefer in your music you should get, I can see both as having their place. But Im still searching for that perfect release, with the best of both worlds. The Japanese original might be the next place to look. Until then I might prefer and recommend these older issue, especially in NM condition.

Equipment used:
Rega RP1 with base carbon cart

Very good pressing, clear, punchy - as for the rebel rock band record - highly recommended.

This seems to be missing a little punch/crunch on the low end. The guitar tracks are very clear but I found myself reaching for the eq and volume dials. If you want this record from new and this is your only option, I'd say go for it. But if you have another option maybe you should go with that. Still, what an album!

Well, maybe I've just expected so much more from this record, but somehow "bottom" is almost missing and the overall sound is very lean......is it just me being disppointed by this issue? Or it is the original sound of this record?
