    Saw this tour. Seems like that was a different universe than this one.

      This is an underrated album as well as an amazing sounding record. I can’t believe the bass on Demolition Man, and sounds consistently great throughout. This can be picked up really cheaply too so grab one quick!

        This is the album where The Police take the recording of their music to new heights. And this LP reflects this beautifully, with amazing space, clarity, nimble bass & drumkit whomp. I'm not kidding, this sucker packs a serious punch that can really get your woofers moving some air. One of the best sounding LPs I have ever heard.

          Has anyone ever actually seen the DJ prototype pic disc that lights up when placed on a turntable as mentioned in Goldmine?

            Incredible sounding album. I never would’ve guessed it would sound this good. Very well mastered. Awesome bass.
