Runouts:
- Runouts are hand-etched
- All Optimal Media plating symbols (e.g. "1+" and "XƧ") are mirrored and some of them may also be upside down. The numeral 1 (i.e., 𐰃) is etched in the continental style with a long riser, and can be misread as V or Λ. Within the string of variant 5, side D, the symbol transcribed as "Δ" actually looks like an etching of 3 separate lines in a triangular arrangement and has a dot on the top.

    I picked up a copy after Christmas this past year (2023) and opened it up today to give it a spin. The vinyl looks nice right out of the sleeve. I gave it a deep clean as I do all my new records, but it looked as if it had already had a good bath. I then gave it a spin. "Where is the music?" I thought to myself. Sometimes I have to use an anti-static gun to negate a charge near my cartridge. Nope! Still nothing. Maybe I had my pre on mute? Nope! So on to the next solution attempt: increase the gain. Okay, I can hear it now but it seems dead, such a super quiet (as in low volume/dynamics) sound.

    I increased the volume attenuation on the pre and bumped the gain on my phonostage. Now I was hearing something but it was still so darn quiet. I thought maybe my rig was in need of a tune-up. It has been a month or so since I spun any music. Before I started in on an OCD afternoon of problem solving, I came here to read up on the release.

    I will echo the many folks who have already posted this: the album is cut very very quietly. As another poster suggested (particularly those with MC's such as myself) crank up everything to hear and feel the dynamics. This solved my problem and the album does sound very good now, but wow! I have never had my rig dialled in like this. I decided to reset my phonostage to 2 o'clock which is the passthru/zero point on mine (EAR 88P), but I set my preamp gain to 13db/channel and volume attenuation to 16db (Wyetech Ruby) This solved it all, I just have to be mindful to reset before I spin any other album in fear of blowing my speakers or my ear drums.

      One of the best live performances. Love the live renditions of all of these tracks. Much has been told about the post production of this record but who cares. Gabriel demands the highest of quality and it shows. The musicians are all at their peak here. The pressing and packaging are top notch as well. Also check out the video it’s fantastic! Highly recommended!

        i wish they’d just press this on 3lp instead of trying to cram 30 mins per side on the first disc

          Mastering is awful. No dynamics, very low volume. Sounds like a bootleg. Very disappointing for something that is advertised as an Audiophile half-speed master. Deserves a recall and free replacement, it's literally that bad.

            It's very good that we now have Athens and Secret World Live on vinyl, but I am sure that most of us are willing to pay some more money for a decent audiophile 3LP or 4LP presentations of those great performances, with the magical touch of KG or BG and pressed at the best plants. These excellent musicians certainly deserve such releases.

              Voor mij persoonlijk, de beste live optreden ooit en live album.

                  I'm disappointed, it’s a wrong press! Very quiet, no dynamics!

                    Very quiet mastering, that lacks dynamics. Cranking up volume does not help. But the biggest issue is the manufacturing quality. Scratches, scuffs and dirt. I had to replace it several times.

                      I've returned my copy twice because of a repeating "wooshy/hiss" noise on B3-5. Same spot every time so I suspect it is due to the pressing. Very disappointing and not up to Gabriels standards in my book.
                      I don't think I'll try a third time because it seems I am not the only one and I don't want to put up my record store with all the trouble as it is not their fault.

                      It would be very classy if Real World/Caroline would acknowledge that there are problems with this press and set up a kind of replacement routine.

                      Too bad.
