I'm not happy with this RE. Top end is lacking, too much bass, seperation of instruments???? The overall sound got rather muddy. The piano is not well balanced with the rest of the instruments. Both my discs are plane (that is rare!), and my disc one is not great, but o.k. Disc two: cracles and pops throughout. Washed it, of course, but still souds "dusty". Toeards the end of side B it suddenly becomes better. Really strange! - Talking about the ecological footprint of vinyl, we must take in account the tons of material wasted for mediocre pressings like that. Plus sending it and returning it. (Like with many other things.)

Completing my first listen to this pressing from a sealed copy but I know the album well. It's a crisp, clean pressing and I think it sounds excellent, though it is quiet as some have pointed out. Kate's voice is pushed up for which I'm very grateful. The piano on the solo piano tracks (Mrs. Bertolozzi, A Coral Net) could be rebalanced. Overall it sounds significantly better than any CD or digital copy I've ever heard, and it's one of her best records.

Beautiful record, but absolutely the worst pressing in my collection. I've treated it with love, but it sounds like I've been using it to serve tacos.

Great sounding pressing, apart from Kates voice, that sound a bit sharp in places. Removing Rolf Harris' part in a an understandable decision. Who wants a complete asshole on its album.

OK, so the vinyl is quiet and the packaging (gatefold, booklet and sleeves) is fine, ...first rate in fact, but the remaster does sound different and I am not sure if it is better?!? Just different and not as comfortable to the ear. I'll need to do more listening and less comparing, as THAT detracts from the great music!

nice clean pressing
i'd say it's missing instrument seperation, punch and some of the sizzle
of the original but for the money a great buy and a no-brainer...get it

Disappointingly quiet pressing, also lacking in top end. Damn, I was so optimistic, too.

My copy has Disk 1 with the Side B label on both sides although the vinyl itself plays side 1 & side 2 correctly. Anyone else have this problem?

Bertie's voice is horrible. The feeling was removed in a sudden for 'An Architect's Dream' and 'The Painter's Link' songs. What a shame! Was the didgeridoo removed too? Against these policies!
