Picked this up today based on these reviews, new for NZD$45, would have been USD$8 in 1979, my fav MJ album, sounds great to me. I'm going to have to replace my 2009 Thriller with the 2016, because it doesn't sound this good.

Great pressing and great album. In fact for me the only Michael Jackson album worth having. As his color faded so did his music. Thriller was good but nowhere near off the wall and then the slide continued.

Warm sound and good dynamics. Definitely a great pressing and well worth the low cost.

To other people with this release: does your copy have a typo on the vinyl's label saying 'made in th EU' rather than 'made in the EU'? Mine does. Just a minor thing but I noticed it straight away.

Excellent quality of sound, mastering and pressing. Talking about the songs, side A much better than side B

The mastering on this record is excellent. This is how a pop record should sound today.

I think this one of the cleanest new re-released records I have played, it sounds real good.

Can someone please let me know if the version of Rock With You on this pressing is the video version with the big clap in the first chorus or the version from the original pressing without the clap after Michael first says Rock with you ?
