    This is probably the worst sounding vinyl I have in my collection.

      Landmark album from one of the greatest goth rock/post punk groups of all time, and a repress that does it justice! IIRC this pressing is sourced from analog tapes but remastered digitally? I’m not entirely sure but either way it should not dissuade as it sounds fantastic, guitar is detailed, clear and powerful, and the drums and bass are deep and punchy, exceptionally so for a 1LP release with so many tracks per side. Very quiet regarding surface noise, especially after a wet clean. Murphy’s vocals are clear and crisp, and there’s really nice dynamics throughout the album- overall I’m very pleased with this release, and I’d definitely recommend a listen with headphones for best results! It’s worth it.

        Yeah no, this is the worst sounding record I own/owned... Even for a remaster. Thankfully I have an original pressing that is sorta worn out but it sounds more dynamic than whatever this remaster is. Too quiet, you can barely hear the guitar and any bass, Peter's vocals fade in and out? Just a weird remaster... Not a fan unfortunately.

          My european copy comes with a powerful and clean sound. There’s a wide range from treble to bass. A CD never had this sound.

            The copy I have is not like some have said. I find the quality to be very good. A little bit of groove noise on the lead in side A but not that bad to really mention. Sound is very good. Yes it may not be mastered directly from original tapes but overall a very good pressing. I flip flopped the CD and the Vinyl back and forth and the low end is marginally better on the Vinyl and the top end more refined on the CD.

              My copy is very noisy and even cleaning didn't help, pure garbage.

                The label saying “remastered in HD from analog tape” would give the impression that it’s analog to analog but in fact this was remastered by taking the tape and transferring it to 96/24 aiff files. I’m not really sure what the point in modern vinyl pressing is anymore. You have all the downsides of cd’s with all the downsides of vinyl.

                  some copies for the US market were pressed from the wrong audio files that were mono, hard panned left.

                  beegars arkive is offering free replacement copies with proper mastering:

                    Just had 5 of the Bauhaus reissues arrive today, this, the only one I've played as yet but mine sounds fine & definitely Stereo. Seen 2 versions of the Bronze reissue listed here on Discogs, different press plants perhaps but all from the same audio source I'd assume.

                      Mine came MONO on both sides. - When A/B'd it against the original vinyl release and the 2013 reissue, it is obvious that it's the LEFT-Channel panned center and the Right-Channel muted.
