      Sounds just awesome. Punchy, open and wide, deep and dynamic, crystal clear top end. What a great quality of record and pressing!
      The surface is absolutely quiet.

        This plays surprisingly well considering it's a picture disc. ;-)

          I came here to catalogue the specific pressing that I have of this album and after reading the reviews was really excited to re visit this album. Just threw it on and can confirm my version also sounds absolutely awesome. It’s been a while since I’ve listened to Bowie (such a legend) but this pressing feels like a proper hifi experience. Grab it if you find it!

            Terrible, lifeless, not dynamic at all. You might as well listen on the radio. I'll be looking for another version. This is a disservice to Bowie.

              This 1983 original pressing sounds fantastic. Found a NM copy for $7. And even though it's probably the most blatantly commercial album Bowie ever released, this doesn't sound nearly as glossy as a great many other pop rock albums from this period, which seem to be bathed in a bright sheen. Bass is pure and deep, mids are punchy and robust, highs are crisp and clean. My copy plays with zero surface noise. One of the best sounding records in my collection.

                Not amongst Bowies best but I’m giving it a 5 because this pressing sure as ish doesn’t deserve only an 80% (as of this writing) The sound on this thing is SUPERB. Produced by Nile Rogers and mastered by RL would you expect anything less? Plus the 123 knock out punch of modern love, China girl and the title track is unimpeachable. Side 2…? Eh..

                  I wish I went to see David Bowie when he last toured New Zealand. So bummed that I let dumb stuff get in the way of me going to see him. So, I’ve been looking for a bargain copy of this album for some time and today I found it. $1 in a bargain bin. Ok, the cover is damaged (looks like a dog ate a corner) but the record plays beautifully. I remember drawing the ‘Let’s Dance’ dance steps from the front cover in my school books.

                    Canadian pressings are worth hunting, since they do not press as many as in the US and UK. Before they began using recycled vinyl, they were all pressed using high quality virgin vinyl.
                    When it is done very well, like this record, it holds up against others. Grab it when find this copy!

                      All in all a very good sounding vinyl record from 83 dynamic, punchy and clear. Pressed in Germany. Self-produced by Bowie and the outstanding guitar of Stevie Ray Vaughan.

                        The whole digital vs analogue debate is pointless. The important thing is how well it was engineered and mastered. Donald Fagen's "The Nightfly" and Joe Jackson's "Body And Soul" are 2 good examples of how great a digitally sourced LP can sound. Lessons from MoFi's secret practice of using a digital step for many years should teach us something. This Bowie release is a quiet pressing with a perfectly good soundstage. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
