I did clean my copy before playing, that usually means all the difference in the world nowadays, don't know why.
On some tracks, like Lucky Star, the sound is a little more flat/less defined and less stereoed as compared to my original German pressing.
Holiday on the other hand sounds basically the same. I do not have the new 180g pressing, but all in all I consider this to be a decent pressing. Why an audiophile would listen to Madonna's first album let alone on a picture disc is beyond me..

As other reviews state this looks great but the sound quality is appalling !

I just played my RSD copy versus the 180 gram remaster - the difference is NIGHT AND DAY. I will never subject my ears to playing the picture disc. This is truly just a cosmetic piece. I've heard worn out 8-track tapes with better fidelity.

I love this replica. Looks brighter than the original and to me, quality sound is totally cool! It plays with any noise on my Denon turntable. So happy to have it!!

What is a Cowbelle- Madonna?

Look in the English credits was this on the original?

Only buy this if you have no interest in playing it. It sounds like a 5th generation cassette copy, played on a tape deck with dirty heads.

The clear rim of this replica is beautiful. Plenty around.

It's a replica people! There is no way that this will have the production and pressing quality of the original 'top draw' Japanese issue. Save your money and track down an original rather than pay the already exorbitant prices that this replica is commanding. You won't be disappointed 😊
