Excellent quality reissue of a classic album.
There has been a lot of debate over the standard of the remastered sound and the quality of vinyl pressings of various contemporary reissues. I am not a hi-fi expert or musical boffin but it sounds great on a standard turntable and set up.
I am pleased to say that my copy of this record meets the highest standards fans and collectors expect with
quiet vinyl and great sound.
Lovely shade of blue and limited to 1000. Fans need to pick this up now if they need one- buy it now whilst its still available at the regular retail price as speculators are sure to hike up the price when its gone I've already seen people asking £90 on ebay.

Sounds nice. Sounds similar to the first series of Abbey Road reissues. Big drum sound, detailed midrange, vocals a tad bright but good clarity and balance. Didn't detect any surface noise on this one either! Played clean! (unlike my copy of JuJu which had noise on the lead in tracks and minor clicks and pops). Nice thick, flat 180g pressing, comes in polylined inner sleeve with replica inner sleeve. Don't think there's any complaints on this one.

UK pressing of Siouxsie's first album is definitely the way to go. All of the punk noise is there, without unnecessary distortion. Crank up "Suburban Relapse" or "Carcass" and remember how good it sounds to be bad.

I have two copies of the first issue https://www.discogs.com/Siouxsie-And-The-Banshees-The-Scream/release/404853
they both seem to have the correct matrix numbers.
One has a glossy outer sleeve and no inner the other a matt outer and a printed inner.
It seems the inner could have been lost? but which is the correct outer sleeve?
Cheers

A very harsh "remaster", actually quite difficult to listen to (especially on headphones).

Stick with the original LP (convert it to digital yourself if you need it on the go), or if you want a clean digital version you could try an earlier CD issue.

But I'd avoid this.

Immortal masterpiece by Siouxsie & The Banshees. In this first album a mix of post-punk and new wave as their best. Listen to believe.........
