Justice in all it's glory on vinyl it sounds AMAZING!!


September 15, 2018
I agree with the dynamic range comments and how its quiet, but as long as you turn it up it's fine. Sounds good to me on my Sennheiser hd700's though!

How do you make a record this quiet and still manage to lose all of the dynamic range?


July 20, 2018
Wow... What an absolutely terrible reissue. Definitely looking forward to the anniversary reissue. Hopefully done just like the first 3 anniversary box sets.

I have to crank my Marantz 2270 up to roughly 50% volume to get any sound out of this pressing. Poor pressing - do avoid.

Just bought it used today and I'm going to ask for my money back. I have a loud stereo and this record has to be played at excessively high volumes. Because it's used, any tiny dust particles or scuffs are severely loud because the record is so quiet. Even in the loudest parts the dust rocked harder than the vinyl.

If you're looking to buy a album to rock the dust, buy this.

Skip this one. I think they're remastering it for a proper pressing; I'll be trading this one in and buying that one once it's released. This sounds like garbage. Pressed so quietly that you have to crank it, and then you can hear every molecule of dirt in the groove. Less bass than usual, even considering that there isn't any to begin with.

A absolut horrible mastering for this great Record! its disappointing to listen...


January 11, 2018
Yes must agree, was so disappointed with the sound on this, its so low, and just does not sound good at all!

I'll have to agree with the majority here that this version is not that good. It's almost similar to what I would call "radio quality". You would expect better with the amount of $$$ made in their claim to fame of this album being #5 greatest heavy metal album of all time. Instead it seems to be either sheer negligence or a cash grab in the management of this "self released" version of a classic album. The band themselves stated that the original recording wasn't the best quality to begin with & with that you can't expect a miracle. You can however with the current technology at least replicate the original quality or better. This in my honest opinion was done with the 2008 remaster under the Warner Bros label. It was half speed mastered at Mobile Fidelity from the original analog master tapes. Mobile Fidelity later gained quite a reputation for their quality reissues of classic albums in all fields under their name. This better version I speak of (2008) has this quality but at it's time of release, it seems that it was in the early stages of the big resurgence of vinyl marketing so it was not advertised to a target audience of audiophiles that now search for Mobile Fidelity (MOFI) reissues & half speed mastering. Those not so familiar with this level of audio quality are often into vinyl collecting as a simple or novel hobby & would probably be happy with any version. This demographic trend commonly uses affordable or budget conscience hardware that is often seen in combo media devices or portables.
