      Pulled this out and gave it a listen and can certainly echo all the previous positive comments. Remember listening to Alphaville in the 80’s which in the United States were mostly known for their four big hits, Forever Young, Red Rose, Big In Japan and Dance With Me. There’s a singles collection from 1988 with just those songs along with one extra mix of each that’s also an awesome listen if you’re a fan. Forever Young was always a dance floor filling slow dance song, sweet memories indeed.

        The vinyl record is visually flawless, exhibiting no bends, burrs, or other physical defects. It's unfortunate, but I can't say the same about the sound quality of the record :( On both sides, the first songs are plagued by significant surface noise and pops. However, as you move closer to the middle of the record, the listening experience improves significantly. On both sides has some more surface noise in between the tracks. I was expecting better sound quality from the vinyl record, but I was prepared for what I received, as I had read comments from other buyers.

        Russian:
        Пластинка пришла в идеальном состоянии. На самой пластинке не было никаких дефектов, искривлений, заусенец и прочих дефектов про которые читал в отзывах или слышал на YouTube.
        К сожалению, но кроме внешнего вида есть еще и звук, он здесь к сожалению, далеко не самый лучший. Первые треки на обеих сторонах имеют очень сильный шум и потрескивания, кроме того, промежутки между песнями имеют тоже очень сильный шум и потрескивания, но это еще не так критично. Ближе к середине пластинке с обеих сторон звук становится лучше. Потрескиваний и щелчков становится в разы меньше и уже пластинка слушается гораздо лучше. Я хоть слушатель и не самый привередливый, но меня прям начало пластинок сильно напрягало этими шумами и треском.
        Я бы оценил этот релиз на 3 из 5. Думаю, что пока в моей коллекции из того что слушал - эта пластинка с самым большим кол-вом шумов. Второй раз я бы эту пластинку не купил, и на подарок тоже не взял.

              Best version of this album I’ve listened to and owned. Flat, quiet pressing with deep sound and no sibilance.

                  Really good quality. Good remastered, clear sound with a lot of details. Many massprodutions company could learn of it. But find another plastic that cant power your house with electricitet. :-) If I should choose between the old original one and this one. This one is my selection.

                      This is the best of synth pop. Every time I throw this on my turntable I play the hell out of it.

                        Well-executed remaster, excellent soundstage, with clear separation of instruments, and a clean analogue sheen - the bass on this edition is simply outstanding. Classic synth-pop, done right. ✅
