I have known that a lot of records manufactured in 2015, the 45 rpm are defective factory, avoid buying that print run.
I bought the reissue 2016 and I have not had problems; They sound incrible. Only Peter Gabriel Security brings the label of the decentered side 2, but not its reproduction

Additionally, this recording has very little dynamic range compression (0.6 as measured by DRC-Meter).

These limited edition, numbered, 45 rpm half-speed master editions are awesome. They are whisper quiet and have a very strong signal (+1.5 dB on my scale). They also come with a free digital download and you can select 24-bit, 48 kHz hi-resolution versions. In addition the LPs come in beautiful gatefold jackets (even if the original album was not gatefold). They are produced directly by Peter Gabriel’s company and so they are done right. These albums are my most prized and loved possessions.

I am a huge Peter Gabriel fan and had to get them all. Us is one of my less favorite Peter Gabriel albums; but I would rather listen to my least favorite Peter Gabriel music than most anything else. “Blood of Eden” is my favorite track and, of course, this album contains the hit, “Steam”. As with all the others the production and mastering on this version is precisely perfect—a joy to listen to.

It took me a while to get a copy that was not warped. In the end had to combine two copies and make a selection. Sound quality is indeed fabulous but selling warped records as an audiophile release is a bit of a bummer


August 12, 2016

Both So and Us have warped lp's, not going to return them just too much hassle. Also my copy of Us, LP 1 is missing label for Side 2, it has two Side 1 labels??????
The quality of mastering is exceptional and the warp is not affecting the quality of sound


July 25, 2016
Had to return my copy of this. All three lp's were warped to varying degrees.

Have to say, the quality of these reissues is simply fabulous. The sound is breathtaking. Begs the question, if this level of sound can be achieved, why isn't every vinyl release like this? Are we buying substandard most of the time?!
