Hay un ruido al empezar el disco, los primeros dos minutos que a pesar de la limpieza continuó ahí. Más allá de esos primeros minutos, el sonido es extraordinario, nítido, también es una mis grabaciones favoritas de Glass. La presentación de Music on Vinyl es impecable, insuperable.

This pressing is magnificent! The sound is warm yet crisp, all the things we hope for in an album. My favourite recording by PG.

I bought one copy, it came defective on the first music of side one (Opening), seller exchanged it for another one, with the same problem. It’s got a noise for about two minutes, similar to a scratch (tic, tic, tic...) but the vinyl is flawless. Pressing defect. Anyone has had the same problem?

Does anyone know if this is still available for purchase? I can't seem to find it on any of the usual places hi-res files are sold.

This 2014 reissue by Music On Vinyl is as good as it gets with bright, clean, and dynamic sounds. It's superb recording, remastering, and pressing. Bravo. Philip Glass is a master of composition; his genius transcends the definitions of classical music. A true audio connoisseur's delight.

A quite tame performance from this release.
The opening has us especially laid back with a rather anemic piano. Floe does pick up the slack somewhat but still has me disappointed with instruments that dont take the size they should because of how constrained they are dynamically. Even played loud it doesnt really work.
This sorely needed a 2XLP or 45RPM set. Or perhaps a better mastering engineer would do it on just 1 disc.
Otherwise its quite pleasant and the pressing is nice and quiet if you find a minty copy.

Equipment Used:
Rega RP1 with Nagaoka MP-200 Cartridge
Cyrus 2 Amplifier
System Fidelity SF-3050 Tower Speakers
Custom made HQ Speaker Cables

The Sony delta symbol on the LP label indicates that this is a re-pressing from 1985 or later not an 1982 pressing.
