Sounds decent. Stereo separation lacking a bit, could've benefitted from a better stereo image and the midrange could've been more detailed. The clarity isn't the best at times, induvidual instruments become less clear when the music gets busy, especially on Never Get Old. I will say on the plus side this doesn't sound compressed or distorted. It's a pretty dynamic, full sounding reissue. The low end is nice, drums are ok, not super punchy but present enough to fill out the rhythm. Low surface noise that can be heard between tracks and a little bit during the quiet parts (not clicks or pops but rather a kind of steady static noise). The piano sounds super weak on The Lonliest Guy, would have liked to hear that given more range and detail. However, the piano on the last couple of songs on side 2 is more prominent and tone rich. Looking For Water sounds really good with nice driving bass and dynamic vocals. Days also sounds pretty awesome but it seems the definition varies track to track. Also, side 2 seems to sound a lot better to me. The balance seems a little off on some tracks too, with most attention paid to bass and vocals while the midrange suffers due to this. It doesn't sound horrible by any means but it's just so-so. I'm really curious to know how this was originally recorded (prob not analog) because it was originally released on CD only back in 2003 and didn't see its first vinyl release until 2014 from MOV which would explain a lot. This could easily the CD master reissued on vinyl. Even the intentional skipping in the beginning of Pablo Picasso sounds like a CD skipping, so I suspect that's the case. In the end, this reissue sounds pretty good but there are definitely parts I wished sounded better.

Nice sound. Dead quiet and dynamic. The large, full-color insert is a nice addition, too. Good pressing.

This cover art is horrible, I can't believe they chose that as a final.

Only just picked this up and the songs are very poorly edited and sound as if the vinyl is scratched as songs lurch about (not damaged vinyl at all) .
Looks nice but not too enjoyable to play.

At the top is hard, there is even more difficult. With the album Let's Dance (1983) was David Bowie at the height of his fame, after that it's become less and less, mind-blowing projects like the industrial rock band Tin Machine. One thing you had to Bowie to hand, he repeated himself always never. Great was the surprise when Bowie in 2002 with a by his old buddy Tony Visconti produced album (Heathen) came, with which he blatantly reference to his sound of the beginning of the 1970s. On the successor Reality is that line continued. Bowie in 2003 is at his best when he's not too interesting trying to do (the monotonous Jonathan Richman-cover Pablo Picasso). More successful are the simply arranged gem Days and the obscure George Harrison-cover Try Some, Buy Some. Many patches in the history of rock and roll come over. Thus, the opener and first single New Killer Star clearly based on the tune of I Will Follow Him. Bowie has lost its relevance as a progressive pop musician but if he continues to the big ones include craftsman.
