    It plays really well, but, as all the modern EU presses, it is all focus on medium frequencies, with consequent lack of bass, lightly audible... This album needs seriously any USA press, there all frequencies are usually balanced perfectly... I wish this could happen....

      Both this one and Without you…are flat and crackle free nor do they have pops. But the overall sound is unbalanced, overtly bassy (in particular!), sibilanced and have strong IGD, whereas the first press CDs (and i assume any following pressings) are lofty, present an even EQ and have indeed a nice soundstage. So much more fun to listen to!
      Both Vinyl don‘t do the music any service. Compressed and ugly sound.
      Packaging is very well done.

        Excellent quality pressing of a classic album. Would definitely recommend this re-press.

          Just listening to this now and can only repeat what others have said, sounds lovely, pancake flat poppity-click free record. Welcome addition to my collection.

            Just received this from Amazon. It came from one of their French warehouses into the UK. Mine has the same Matrix / Runout as the 2015 Red Vinyl RE.

              It sounds good but between songs in b side are clicks and pops

                I like the sound quality on this reissue, detailed and clean

                  I have ordered a copy from Amazon and it had a manufacturing issue - the hole was not only deformed (oval shape?) but also larger than the turntable spindle.
                  I sent it back and got a replacement. Same problem! Unbelievable!
                  Now I ordered the 2015 press from elsewhere. Fingers crossed!

                    Although I've not heard an original vinyl press, I have been listening to this album since the week it was released on CD and digital.

                    I'm impressed with this. Especially for £16. It sounds both as fresh and as claustrophobic as it did on first ever listen.

                    My copy has no crackle, no pops, no skips. It sounds lovely and quiet and well balanced on my setup. Punchy bass, crunchy guitars and clean drums. The ride cymbal cuts through beautifully.

                    The packaging is very good for the price too. Comes in a sturdy gatefold sleeve with printed inner sleeve.

                    This gets a big, big thumbs up from me.

                      Anyone have this and can attest to the quality over the 2015 180 gram?
