lmfao the back cover is upside down

Other than that little "defect" this pressing sounds excellent for the most part - the only issue i have with the remaster is the way the first drums sound on "Jump," where it sounds like it's being distorted by analog tape or something. But other than this, I have never heard "Panama" sound any better. Love this!

Sounds just like my old cassette! But no hiss or Dolby.

Another great pressings - much like the self-titled pressing (Europe copy) this pressing is a match in QA and sound. Excellent job by the engineers and QA teams - happy to add this to my collection.

Great sound, totally quiet pressing, rather odd that the song titles are not listed anywhere on the LP cover or anywhere on the inner sleeve. Did the original have them anywhere?

Just for advice really but if you order via Amazon UK right now costing only £13.99 this is the absolute exact version you get. Yes got mine just now, ordered yesterday for what I thought was the older 30th anniversary version. Oh no you get this EU made but US variant which looks fabulous compared to my old UK first pressing this sounds really a little bit better, louder, clear and just more omph if that's a technical term for audio ??? But who gives a flying fart, you know what I mean, its bloody great.
After not having much interest in hard rock for many years, I have been down the alt/indie road for many decades now I just decided I needed to revisit some bands from my youth e.g. Be Bop Deluxe, 10cc and Talking Heads plus some good old Van Halen.
Saw them supporting Sabbath in 1978 in Bradford England it was one of the best concerts I have ever had the privilege to attend. Both bands were fabulous, obviously shortly after Ozzy was gone. But VH really were the winners that night, if I had to chose.
So good to have some hard rock back in my vinyl collection again.

Very good remaster and well pressed. Doesn’t pack as much punch as the s/t album in this recent Warner Bros remaster series, but still a step above my original pressing. Slightly quieter than my original, but has a bit more depth all around and really opens up at high volumes. Could have used more bass and a few tweaks here and there, but overall very good and doesn’t fall below the quality of my original. My only complaint is that the highs on the last track of each side get a little sizzly and muddled, mostly on the hi-hats and cymbals, but it’s not too distracting. Definitely worth the investment even if you already have an old copy.

Strongly recommend. The remastering from the original tapes really does the trick. Not an overly "hot" mix, but one that responds well to loud playback with clean lines, quiet deadspace and nuanced separation. Turn it UP !!!
