My copy sounds reasonable. The sound is typically digital to analog. The sound quality of a CD is probably better. My version has barcode 7 31452 41652 3 and text "Simply Fuss Free!"

Just got this in from Amazon. Gave it a spin clean and let it dry, popped it on a few hours later and it sounds good to me. Not sure what the fuss is about. Is it an AAA pressing? No, but it’s definitely not the crap quality these dudes are making it out to be. Using an ATLP7 w/ VMN540

How utterly disappointing: one of my favourite records ever sounds horrible on vinyl (4785288 from 2016). Now that I am reading the other reviews, I understand why.

Those two versions (MOV & Island) are similar because the recording is digital, but the re-issue master is better now (2016), defined, but narrow by digital compression.

Sound quality on this 2016 Island/Universal UK reissue is actually pretty good. However the cover and insert images have been quite poorly scanned. It's always a mixed bag with reissues of this classic album on vinyl. But you can't play the cover, so I guess this is the best in-print option for now. Obsessives might want to mix and match the MOV packaging with this pressing until the inevitable 30th anniversary reissue in 2025.

I used to own the Music on Vinyl version of this record and I was never happy with the sound quality. Sounded like it was poorly mastered (flat and slugdy) a bit like I was listening to it under water if that makes sense. This reissue is really well done and the album sounds well balanced with good dynamics. It's far superior to the MOV version in my opinion.

I have an M.O.V reissue copy of this and when compared literally everything is lower quality in the 2016 re-issue.
even the image on the cover is low res and fuzzy... disappointing.

The album however is a superb pop record..
