    How bizarre... I have here a lovely clean playing, sonically bright & proud recording, no issues whatsoever!!

    I can only imagine this was pressed once or twice & the latter being the good run. Bought mine from Juno UK. I'm a fussy git & this plays SUPERBLY. Maybe EU bound copies were pressed somewhere else?

    As for the music. Well no complaints. From 'Sorcerer' to 'Street Hawk' (!) I'm a fan, & while this isn't the synth noir lover's dream, fans of the flick will not be disappointed.

    I love this film, & this release.

    Just ask the seller to check the playback.

      The sound fidelity on this album is atrocious!!

      In my decades of collecting vinyl, this is without doubt the worst quality record I've ever heard, which is a shame as it contains some of Tangarine Dream's best work in my view, but the pressing is not fit for purchase. This should have been recalled and money refunded. There's not one track on my copy which plays without significant surface noise and popping.

      To be honest Virgin should be ashamed of themselves for rerleasing such a lousy pressing.

        My copy was fine. Unfortunately, does not give more info about the recording, etc. Clean vinyl, minimum noise (a bit bent, but does not affect play) Nice packaging with pictures of the movie. Virgin label, with the cover in the LP label itself. It says, "Tangerine Dream", but nothing else (besides the lp label itself). I don't get why the OBI strip. Needs to be removed, then put inside, because it covers the jacket, and it is horizontal (wt?). Anyway, I like this album, even with the unexpected sounds in the first tracks. Anyway, I love MOST of TD's Soundtracks. A genre all of their own, inside their own catalogue.

          Im sorry for everyone who had quality issues with the copy their purchased. As for me, my copy is fine throughout except for one BIG problem and it seems by the way, I am the first one to write anything about it. The actual MUSIC . I can only say I am heartbrokenly let down that I was so excited with anticipation for what, over 40 years, only to hear this? THIS? I am a TD "completist" and this makes "Dead Solid Perfect" sound like "Phaedra" THIS makes " Three O Clock High "sound like "Stratosfear", etc. Apologies to all who are fans of the movie and this soundtrack but "keep" it away from me is all I have to say about it.

            In my experiences with vinyl, a clean needle and a higher quality needle help with surface noises. Look under a magnifying glass to see if the tip is clean.

              Im not one to usually whine about new records not being immaculately clean out of the shrink, just clean the thing. This, however, is atrocious. My copy has audible scratches. Not just dust or surface smudges, but SCRATCHES. Hearing ticks on every revolution. For over forty bucks this is just inexcusable!

                I may be lucky but my copy is totally perfect. It's flat. No pops, no flaws, no marks of any kind nor scuffs or scratches.
                Good sound for a good music.

                  FYI my copy was not warped and had no pops or flaws. Label was cherry. Sorry to hear people had problems but I'm not convinced everything is crap. Discogs has turned into a vent a thon, and I rarely read about good vinyl anymore...just bad. I love my copy and I ordered it from a UK record store, and am completely happy.

                    Can't wait for my copy to arrive! I hope it won't be faulty as some of yours, guys. Fingers crossed!

                      This record pressed at a Czechoslovakian pressing facility is crap. My copy was dished, warped, and had numerous bad pops - some of them actually caused skips on the record. Is there any quality control at the factory or at Universal/Virgin in the Netherlands? I digitized while playing and found the problems could not be fixed. One song had bad sound dropouts at the start and sound falloff in the song. The digital download offered by the company was a ruse to force you either have a Social account or a Gmail account. I had none of these and could not obtain the digital version. Virgin should have put it out on CD as they would have sold more due to the soundtrack collector market. Virgin was touting the wonderful sound of vinyl but Virgin records of the 70's and 80's never sounded or looked this bad.
