Excellent job on the mastering and the pressing is flawless. Definitely the reissue to have.

Very good sound quality. Deep bass, nice highs and clear voices, high quality pressing.

In a very strong field of contenders, this is my favourite Queen album. There is not a single track that does not earn its place on the album, a testament to the prolific and artistic creativity of Deacon, May, Mercury and Taylor..

The pressing quality is excellent with all of the musical elements reproduced with a stunning clarity that makes the whole listening experience pure joy.

Anyone who can listen to 'Love of my life' without having at least one tear in their eyes might just be missing the point. A beautiful ballad.

Great sound and package. Not expensive, so very well release \m/ And sure, love this album.

This sounds much better than the USA release. My copy sounds nice and quiet and the songs sounds full on this release.

I compared this one with a 1976 french repress, and this 2015 version sounds awfull ! lack of details, too munch bass frequencies.

Very disappointed... Bought it tempted by the hype sticker "half speed mastered" and the mention of "original master tapes" and the name Bob Ludwig, but.. the record is just over compressed ! Apparently this is how Brian May wanted the record to sound, but as it works on sparse numbers like "love of my life", a track like "Bohemian Rhapsody" is just saturation and noise. I don't have an original copy to compare it with, but I'll stick with my cd version (sounds better!)

My copy has some very loud pops right in the transition of the prophet's song and love of my life, sadly, I hope it is fixable, anyone else with this issue? otherwise awesome press.

Sound quality is fantastic on this one! I recommend this version!

Packaging is phenomenal, really feels of top quality. The record it's self is MILES ahead of the 2008 Repress, get this one if you can't find an original 1975 pressing.
