    This sounds incredible !!! Remastering is almost perfect in every way. Worth the money spent, highly recommend.

      Fantastique pressage! J'ai l'impression de re découvrir les bandes analogiques en studio.
      Le LP en édition limitée vient sublimer cette expérience. A saisir avant que les prix ne s'envolent. Collector

        I normally go for originals (like my original Unknown Pleasures), but based on some of the reviews, I went for this copy. No skipping. No surface noise. I don't have the original to compare it against, but it sounds great to me. Didn't even require any cleaning. The clear vinyl also looks pretty trippy. Looks like it's going back and forth vs, just counterclockwise, Sound quality is #1 by a mile, but I do enjoy a beautiful record spinning on my turntable. (Playing on a Fluance RT85N)

          This pressing sounds great. One of the best in my collection. Really captures the feel of the original.

            Best sounding record I have, it is so absent of surface noise that when you turn it up (and I mean turn it up!!!) you get the tape hiss in all it's warm glory!

                Sounds perfect just like the Ruby red unknown pleasures,
                Figured the sleeve would be textured, or the inside red of the sleeve would be textured but nah.
                Still for sale for retail on new order/rhino records website

                  Given this is a 2007 remaster, is there any sound difference between this edition and the 2xCD edition of that year,? Thanks!

                    Did they go back and use analog master tape for this 40th edition? because the dynamics are crazy good on this! I also own a german first pressing and im telling you its a close race!!!

                      One of the best sounding records in my collection and one of my favourite pressings because of how perfectly clear it looks. If you told me this was made of glass I'd believe you.

                      The inclusion of a poly lined sleeve was a nice touch as well, didn't even need a cleaning.
