    Here are my ratings for what I consider the best album ever made:
    UK 1st -2/-1 is a 10 out of 10.
    This Japan is a 9.5 out of 10,
    This one I'm posting about here, Giles, is very good but I'm giving it a 7.5 out of 10. It is very good but not great IMO - esp when compared to the other two. A step down in SQ, clarity and sound stage - but again still very good.

      In my opinion, the sound is quite good. I loved it. It is not the best edition, the Japanese one from 1969 and 1976 are much better but for a beginner it is excellent.

          This remix is among the best of the bunch of Giles' Beatles treatments, but in some ways I feel the least necessary. Sgt Pepper and the White Album both suffered from lazily thrown together stereo mixes, featuring awful left/right panning. The remixes of those were the most necessary I feel, as they correct those poor stereo mixing choice and make them much more listenable in a modern context. Let it Be was better mixed for stereo, but Spector's production gave it a warmer, bassier, and somewhat foggier sound, which the remix cleared up and succeeded in giving us the clear sound the album should've had to begin with.

          But in my opinion, Abbey Road has never suffered from a lack of clarity or dodgy stereo mixing. The mix and production of this album was always fantastic, easily their best sounding album they released, so while I do like the remix and appreciate the work that was put in, I don't see much of a reason for it to have been done, nor would I ever choose it over the original.

          However, even with my feelings about the remix on the table, Giles did an absolutely phenomenal job here. The mix doesn't elevate the music in any way, but instead offers a new and excellent way to listen to this masterpiece of an album.

            I've been reading these comments and I am wondering which copy I may actually have? I am legally blind and reading the dead wax is going to take me a while via photography. That will tell me a lot more but I probably won't be able to do that for a few days.

            But my question has to do with the QRP pressings. Does QRP not put their stamp or name on their involvement with this release? Like on the Jimi Hendrix LPs, you know when QRP was involved by simply looking at the hype sticker. It was all I could do to read the very bottom of the hype sticker on the version I got. But it didn't really contain any information or catalog numbers or anything like that.

            I do see 2019 on the back of my LP cover. And other than the mention of Giles and Sam, and of course the titles, there really isn't anything else I can find on the back cover. Mine is (I believe) the pressing these reviews are referring to but I don't know?

            I bought mine from Amazon for a total of $21.62 so I'm not expecting it to be a QRP pressing. And that may be a good thing in this case? But I'm still not confident it isn't. So any additional feedback on things to look, for or placements of stickers, or anything identifying would be very much appreciated. I do of course have the catalog number for this entry on my label as well.

            By the way, my copy sounds really great and quiet. I haven't had any pops or artifact noise yet and I'm almost done with Side 2. I like the mix and I do understand how some people say things are a little too quiet. That doesn't really bother me but I have been enjoying this, whichever version, cheaply priced Abbey Road LP I got!

            Thanks for any info, or even any links to more info, because I really do wonder now which pressing I have?

              This mix is incredible - like listening to Abbey Road for the first time. Great pressing with no noise.

                I certainly feel like Giles and them did a great job on these pressings. This is not my first one. With the cost of many Beatles records, I feel like these are a bargain. Then Target puts most of their records half off and I can bring this one home for 12.00? Sign me up please!

                  Remaster was done well but I much prefer the original mix of I want you she’s so heavy. Lennon’s voice is almost too clear on this 50th remaster. High quality press though, heavy and comes in a nice sleeve

                    I played this again last night and it sounds glorious! Dynamic, detailed, and well pressed by QRP. No surface noise on mine to speak of.

                      Came out of the packaging with a good amount of surface noice and pops. Ran it through a vacuum cleaning machine and it definitely helped clean up the quality, but it’s still not perfect. Pops are gone but there is a minimal amount of surface noise left.
