The sound is excellent on this release. Great low end, nice clarity, things could've been a bit more dynamic, sounds a little thin and a tad compressed at times but otherwise great overall sound, nice detail. Nice clean, quiet pressing for a more than fair price. Happy with it. Standout track for me would be "Because Youre Young," they nailed the drums and bass on that cut and it sound pretty spectacular.

Amazing effort and especially great on Vinyl! By 1980, Bowie managed to combine the experimental spirit of his acclaimed Berlin trilogy with the FM appeal of the Let's Dance-era and crafted a transcendental album appealing to all sorts of Bowie fans, be it the Zigggy-heads, be it the ambients, be it the dancers. Not his greatest effort (that'd be Station to Station or Lodger), but very close behind and nonetheless a five-star album.

Should this not be Europe rather than US, the same as the other three releases on the same day?

I have been incessantly listening to this album on Spotify lately. The LP version is far more menacing and invasive than the digital copy. Surreal layering and Doppler tricks abound creating a spatial paranoia that I didn't get with the digital version.

There are anecdotal stories of how Saturday Night Live founder, Lorne Michaels, spiraled out on a several month long extramarital cocaine bender while listening to nothing but this album. After finally getting it on vinyl, the story finally makes sense.

A new repress is coming out on February 23 and that was remastered in 2017, and it will be on a 2 disc LP, so not sure if it will be better than the original.

Picked up this album, saw the barcode and thought "my original doesn't have this..." So I went to trusty discogs and lo and behold, I have the 1984 European issue. Damn good quality for reissues (in practically mint condition, can't see any marks around the spindle hole... Slightly quieter than the original, maybe with a punchier bass? I don't know, it sounds just as good really :D

For me ashes to ashes remains the most emotional, beautiful song , that bowie did in his long carrier.

This pressing sounds odd to me - or my setup is suddenly out. It's clean, and a nice pressing (very little distortion except at perhaps the last 20 seconds of the end of one side), but the bass and mids are distant and recessed throughout, leaving quite a hollow sound. Anyone else got this - any thoughts?

Hi, I have one I bought a couple of years ago from a guy who worked at the rca factory in Washington, Tyne & Wear. They were made by the guys on night shift using the manual stamper. You can check how they have sold on Popsike. The last one sold for over £4200 in 2007! Rumours were there were only 5 in existence, but I suspect 10-20. There also seems to be 2 colours. Mine is the opaque liliacy one but a couple of darker more translucent ones went for over £1000 a few years back, though they could be bootlegs! I also picked up 2 elvis albums in a smokey clear viny, possibly the only ones in the world.

There a tons of counterfeit 're-issues' allegedly Made in Portugal currently flooding the market these days. Easy to spot because the cover has some serious printing issues - most notably on the back side where the green is just way off (original is also green but much less saturated).
