Incredible pressing. The vinyl is clean, flat, and so dynamic. The bass is thick and heavy and absolutely wonderful, yet the highs are crisp. This half-speed master is one of the best pressings of this classic album.

Very pleased that I have been able to add this to my collection, particularly as this album means a lot to me.

I am a little disappointed that Side D appears to have been pressed off-centre, causing roughly 2-3mm of side to side movement of my cartridge/tonearm. Side C is unaffected, which is a little odd. Side D still sounds great, so I shouldn't imagine it will be a serious problem, and doesn't really detract from having this in my collection.

Sound great! Artwork is on point. An insert would have been cool, but it is not a deal breaker. clean flat pressing, black poly lined inners.

Good God, does this pressing sound amazing! So evenly round and full. The Nite Klub baseline alone is worth it.

Gosh I just got to know about this! Have been disappointed with a number of Abbey Road half speed mastered LPs but I'll take a leap of faith!

The original record sounds great, but this reissue is more dynamic and has more pronounced bass and more refined treble -- "like a veil has been lifted," as they say. My copy is flat and quiet and nearly perfectly centered.

US buyers should be aware that this is a reissue of the original UK release, with the longer (6:06) version of "Too Much Too Young" and without "Gangsters."

Picked this up the other day at one of of my local record shops, only opened the cellophane to have a look at the discs & packaging. Must say the discs are nice & heavy, the packaging is lovely & glossy! One of my favourite albums of all time. Will be playing soon! Well worth the money I spent. 😀

Sensational sound quality on this one! A definite overall improvement on one of the best albums ever made - Take warning
