I don’t know what the fuss is all about, saying that the quality of the pressing is poor. My one plays fine with no problems? As for the album itself, I believe it’s one of the finest examples of what music should sound like. 🤘🏻

My pressing sounds fine. It was a little dusty, but after a cleanup, no problems.
To me it sounds good, I compared it to the 45rpm and the latter sounds better, but this one isn't bad at all.

Not particularly noisy as some others have noted, but agree on the lack of dynamic range. The production album never sounded particularly good but I'm disappointed they didn't do more "remastering"

Sealed copy had lots of dust and after cleaning revealed lots of faint lines. Do they play them in the factory? Also not very good sq. Just got to turn it up and enjoy the music.

My copy was sealed and sounds great, playing it on a Technics 1200 turntable with new Ortofon cartridge and stylus, maybe I was lucky, certainly not as bad as some people are making out, but I'm not an audiophile so what do I know.

Sounds like its been copied direct from CD. Sounds lifeless with no dynamics. Lots of clicks, pops and surface noise.

I've just played my 1988 45rpm single of Made of Stone and its sounds far superior. Looks like the original pressings and the 45rpm version are the way to go.

Ordered new/sealed from Amazon US; this does not appear to be a UK-sourced pressing. There is something not right about this pressing. Like others, mine arrived with fingerprints and lots of dust and other manufacturing debris. The sound is not what I'd expect on a 180g remastered edition; rather, it sounds like a direct CD transfer (with lots of pops and other sound artifacts that don't belong).

Mine is a great pressing, I guess i am lucky going by others comments. First time I have owned the vinyl and certainly an upgrade on my original CD

As some here say this release is noisy, but listenable. Especially for the reasonable price I paid. If there wouldn't be noises it would be a really perfect pressing, because if nothing interrupts the sound is amazing. And even if there are some noises, it doesn't interrupt that much. Also there's more noises on side B, mostly on "This Is The One". At least for my copy.

I never bought a record that noisy. Try to send it back.
