Notes

The third studio album by the British rock band Queen was recorded from July to September 1974 at Trident Studios in London, AIR Studios in London, Wessex Studios in London and Rockfield Studios in Monmouth (Wales). It was released on 8 November 1974 by EMI Records in the United Kingdom and on 12 November 1974 by Elektra Records in the United States.

Album with the famous cover showing a Mick Rock photo.

Digressing from the progressive themes featured on their first two albums, this album featured more conventional rock tracks and marked a step towards the "classic" Queen sound. It was produced by the band and Roy Thomas Baker and launched Queen to mainstream popularity in both the UK and throughout the world.

This is where the fun really starts with Queen. This 1/2 speed job is boomy and I had to back off the bass. All the 2015 1/2 speeds are like this. The details are there but you have to tweak the EQ to get them out. A lot of people hated the Ludwig remasters and the vinyl is cut from them.
There is compression unfortunately. I have all Queen albums on vinyl in multiple copes from different times. I think the trick with the 1/2 speed pressing is play them loud!
In general I think old pressings are better overall, as modern vinyl often disappoints.
The vocal details on this pressing is pretty good. Analog recordings should really follow the AAA path when being produced. The 1/2 speeds are produced from digital files.
Anyway, some people expect amazing fireworks from vinyl which has lower sound quality than CD. If you want the best sound play CD!

Generally good sounding pressing, but beware of slight sibilance if that bothers you.
Any idea of when this was pressed?

The "Brighton Rock" intro is the same audio from Rainbow's (8) "Prelude To The Music Makers Concerto" from the album After The Storm.

very compressed en lifeless. Sourced from the digital 1998 masters (cd quality).
the vinyl itself is quiet and flat. The sleeves are scans from the old ones and a bit unsharp.

incredible! uses the old 7ties matrices while being pressed on dead silent vinyl in the late 8ties. maybe the last true analogue pressing!!
Way better then all the reissues from 2009 and 2016 and onwards as these are from digital (compressed!!) files.

Think I may have a 12th variant? Side one is YAX-4881-3U OO 2 TML-S . Side 2 is YAX-4882-4U HA 4 . Inner matches exactly what's described here. Outer is one of the ones that's missing the trident logo on the back. If anyone can give me any information on the copy I have I'd appreciate it!
