    After a tweak with your stereos EQ settings as this compared to any other piece of music’s EQ is an awful switch. Overall phenomenal album, phenomenal sound.

      Amazing pressing! Buy this one and forget about the rest. Justice to Justice!

        An excellent, clean and quiet pressing! Sound quality is awesome, great bass gives the subs a great workout, I haven't compared this to any other pressings, originals, or remasters, and am glad I took the advice of the fanatics who review these pressings, haven't been steered wrong yet. Thank you for sharing your obsession!

          Un album de elită al curentului heavy metal-speed metal-thrash metal!!! În privința muzicii, orice ascultător de gen este pe deplin lămurit că este una de calitate extraordinară. Toate piesele sunt fantastice, compoziții inovatoare și interpretare de înaltă clasă. Din fericire, această variantă este una foarte bine imprimată, doza pick-up ului redând sensibil mai bine muzica, comparativ cu toate variantele ascultate de mine până acum. Muzică-10, Sound-9,8, Design destul de simplist și economic dar care conține versurile-8,5.

            Compered this pressing with original first press Europe 1988 Vertigo ‎– 836062-1. Original sounded more dynamic and "analog". Still excellent pressing 8 of 10. Also sound signature is the same, bass shy.

              Top notch pressing: recommended. (y) Don't expect a different mix; kick and toms are freakin huge, so, there is plenty of bass on this record, just not much bass guitar.

                Bass guitar is more audible on this release than on others.

                  Great sound and good pressing EXCEPT crackling on the first few minutes of first track on side four "To live is to die". Vinyl quality of that track is not as good as the other tracks unfortunately. Maybe the stamper was worn out at some point so not all copies might be affected? The 2 different copies I had access to and listened to were affected though. Anybody else experiencing this?

                    Great pressing indeed. This is the original 1988 master transfered respectfully and carefully into quality vinyl 30 years later. My original 1988 CD always sounded very good, but this excellent vinyl repress has a bit more air to it, and sounds fresher. I can't imagine the upcoming remaster will make a big difference here.
