      I picked this pressing up a few years ago just to be able to own this album on vinyl. I was quite disappointed with the pressing quality. Flat, lifeless. I find myself turning the volume/bass up on some songs. This has led me to seek out an original (and patchouli scented) pressing.

        Reviewing every record in my collection

        Man, this surely must be one of the best sounding records in my collection, and no repressing even nears the quality of this original first press (and I've owned two in the past, a regular repress and the Red limited edition) the amount of small details present in every song, the dynamics and range, everything is top notch. If you're looking for a nice sounding pressing of this album, get this one. It's cheap and it sounds flawlessly. (Plus it still smells of Patchouli after all these years)

          My copy never came with the AIDS insert but my CD has it. Can I use my CD copy or did the LP have a larger version?

            Just picked up a copy of this with the plastic still on it from my local record store. It STILL smells of patchouli!!!! One of Madonna’s best and a classic 80s album. This vinyl sounds amazing!

              It's a classic album. This pressing of the album is very, very thin. Reminiscent of Casablanca record pressings. The sound quality and dynamic range are lovely—virtually no surface noise for my copy. I am curious to get a US Pressing of the album. I gifted one to a friend a couple of months ago, and it was an original 1989 US pressing of the album. The vinyl was not as thin as this pressing. If anyone has any suggestions, please feel free to leave a note :-)

                Should I read the reviews first.
                Sonically a disaster period.

                  The album is iconic, the musical material is excellent.
                  The disc is smooth, well centered — the pickup head "floats" smoothly. The record is heavy, the mass is quiet, there is silence in the pauses. There are clicks at the end of the "A" side.
                  The sound of the soundtrack is good — dynamic, the balance is even, the stage is wide, good detail. But in general, the sound is kind of lifeless, there is no depth - for four.
                  If the record itself is performed perfectly, then the album cover is performed poorly. The quality of the printing is very low — both external and internal envelopes. The feeling that the photos were copied from the source of a much smaller size, and then scaled. The paper quality of the inner envelope is very low.
                  In general, the feeling of this album release is ambiguous — knowing these nuances, I would have passed by.

                    As others have said, no other pressing comes close to this, and yes you can still smell the PATCHOULI on the record jacket. Silky quiet pressing, and solid artwork rounds out the perfect record for your collection.

                      I Have Been Listening To This Album For Years But It Only Just Clicked With Me As I Listened To It This Morning And Now I See Why It's Held Up As One Of The Best 80's Pop Albums. It Is One Of Madonna's Very Best Albums And This Wax Sounds Phenomenal. It's Crazy That The Cover Still Heavily Smells Of Patchouli Oil All These Years Later.

                        Amazing Album, One Of Madonna's Very Best, Vinyl Sounds Incredible And The Sleeve Still Smells Of Perfume All These Years Later.
