This pressing is just fantastic. I've never heard this record sound so good, in any format. Incredible dynamic range and detail.

Having compared this to the 2003 remaster (which this is the same master of), I can tell of no difference at all. Some people say it sounds quieter and wider, I have no idea why, as it doesn't. The waveform in Audacity is identical. All you're paying for here is the slightly higher fidelity. Don't waste your money!

A solid album, in fact all 3 main Japan albums should be bought and if possible as first press. (Quiet Life, Tin Drum, Gentlemen Take Polaroids).

I've gone through three copies of this and both discs on all three had these sharp, ripple-like warps that sent the cartridge bouncing up and down rapidly. I doubt that's good for the cartridge's suspension. It's too bad, because this record sounds excellent.

This is a great sounding remaster. Really great. But my copy has clicks on Canton at the end of side one. Annoying, but there is a small line scratch right in the vinyl. That said, I also have the 2lp 45rpm edition, which sounds even better and is perfect. I highly recommend getting that, if you love this album as much as I do. It is an amazing experience!

I first got the single disc remaster of the album here in 2018, which sounds great, except my copy has a scratch on Canton which makes some click sounds on the track. So, I let myself do what I wanted to do at first and bought the 2lp 45rpm edition. It sounds so good! I am so glad I have it now. I did not let myself believe this would be worth the extra expense, but for an album like this, one of my favorites too, it elevates it to a new level. Perfect sounding. If you love Tin Drum I highly recommend the 2lp 45rpm edition.

Apart from boosted contrast of the front image and some increased sharpness (compared to an original), it's a flawless reissue. The sound is very reminiscent of my German copy from 81, maybe slightly more detailed. The original tape hiss is there, compared to a 2003 remaster that tried to eliminate it to some degree.
No surface noise, and the disc is flat.
All in all, I'm super happy with it.
