My copy is excellent. Plays perfect has no background noise at all. I think it's better then the original pressing. Love all tracks - such a great album. Michael: the world is missing you and your music. Such a shame your not with us anymore . I am Fan 4 ever x. For me one of the most inspiring artist that ever lived...

This remastered release worth a bite. My copy almost flawless and sounds great, no cracks/clicks.

Recently I’ve purchased this release at a local vinyl store in The Netherlands. Upon listening I was very disappointed with the sound quality. I sounded as if I was listening through a pillow, a dull sound with little vibrance. Noticed several pops/clicks, even after using the carbon brush before it’s first play. Exactly the way reviewer ‘Vibeby’ describes below.

My records also missed some of the labeling and were pressed incorrectly (the center hole was molded wrong). Finally, some of the song were skipping on it’s first play. Unacceptable, definately a bad pressing.

I returned the set to the store and was hesitant to exchange it for a new set since I also wasn’t impressed with the sound quality. I was happy I did exchange it for a new set.

The new set has no strange pressing errors, shows all labels, doesn’t skip and, most importantly, sounds totally awesome! The Black or White intro and first notes sound very impressive, so do the other songs. I literally had a ‘ Jam’ playing these records. “Why you wanna trip on me’ sounds very sharp, but not artificially enhanced, giving you the lows exactly were you’ll expect them.

In the end I ended up playing the full set on it’s first play, listening while doing some work, cooking and, at times, turning up the volume just to confirm over and over this is a very fine release.

Recommended (, but watch out for bad pressings). L.O.V.E.

finally got this pressing. wanted to compare my old 1991 korean pressing. it's 10 seconds to see how poorly mastered pressing it is. compared the 1991 Korean pressing, channel seperation and dynamics are noticeably poor on this. base is dull. since this album itself was mixed and produced superbly, if one listen only this pressing, the one would think this is a great pressing with a good SQ. bu sorry it's not. it can be so much better on original pressings.

Just side three presented some 'pop' issues, but i think with a good deep cleaning it would sound alright, other than that i thought the rest of the sides sounded amazing

Same for me a lot of cracks and pops and cleaning it didn't solve it at all.
The mastering is very good but the pressing is a shit !!!!!!

I am fed up paying more than 25€ for a product that manufacturers produce like shit....

They should do something good for this resurected market, but as usual they don't understand anything about merchandizing and quality...
Produce bad quality in quantity, and soon you'll make the market die once more. Incredible to be so so narrow minded....

Had no chance with my copy. Strong hissing / distortion on s-sounds from time to time, especially on B4, C2 and C3. Quite disappointing. Too bad that I don't have a '91 pressing to compare with. What do you folks think of the initial pressing quality?

I really hoped this would sound good - and it does! Very good! The production and sounds in this album mean that any errors in pressing would be pretty obvious. Im so happy with it. Great seperation, clean crisp highs (glass breaking) and punchy lows (dad thumping on the door). In my top 5 best sounding records. :)
