I am very impressed with the sound quality of this pressing. It is much more rich and full than the CD and is not plagued with the ear fatiguing compression that the CD unfortunately was. The jacket and LPs are nicely made. There were some small imperfections in the vinyl in the form of shallow indentations that could be heard as barely audible thuds during a few quiet parts. Not a major issue, but an issue nonetheless. My only real complaint is that the download code for (What’s the Story) Morning Glory? was included instead of the correct one.

The pressing on my copy is good - flat and clean. However, the sound quality is as others have described - it's okay. Not bad, but not great.

Since no one had mentioned it, Slide Away is modified on this release. The backing vocals during the bridge ("Slide in baby /together we'll fly...") are missing, leaving only Liam's front vocals during that part. The rest of the song seems untouched, though.

My copy of this pressing sounds thin and too bright. Typical of some of the early-mid 80's CBS output. Anyone notice this on this pressing?

Tonnes better than the original CD, and whichever digital release is available on Spotify. Much less harsh, better detail and space. Vinyl is quiet enough. However, it isn't perfect, especially as occassionally the sound momentarily "ducks" out as if the master tape is damaged (not excessive compression). I'd like to hear the original to compare and assess whether the master tape has degraded since.

Definitely (maybe) the best-souding Big Brother remaster (compared to WTSMG and BHN). Not a marvelous-souding pressing by any means, but its way less fatiguing to the ears than the CD!

In my eyes it sounds fine. Its designed for modern sound systems with dsp. But indeed if u raise the mids and the lows at the mixer, the sound becomes more "voluminous".

Everything sounds flat and lifeless. Even the mastering on the downloads is far far too loud. The only good thing to say about this release is the inclusion of all the bonus material. Vinyl sounds awful though.

I recently compared this reissue against an original UK pressing. Wow. What a difference. This reissue sounds flat with almost no bass compared to the original. It's also mixed at a much lower level. If you're a massive fan and have the means, I highly recommend picking up an original pressing of this release.

Of all the big brother reissues, this is the most decent one. Totally listenable, but still it feels digital, the drums sounds weak and the dynamic range it's not that good
