    Has anyone noticed that the LP labels are on the wrong sides of each LP?
    • Lost_Sounds_Vinyl's avatar
      People aren't lying about the bass on this one. But it's balanced well; clear mix that is very of the era. Zero complaints. Crack a brew and enjoy.
      • AlanisCorset's avatar
        loving the quality on this, super clean sounding, bass that slams, vocal mix is slightly low as mentioned below, but that's my only gripe, and a very minor one at that.
        • Obzensphere's avatar
          Finally got my hands on a copy, after a deep clean I gave it a spin... on my initial listen the sibilance issues were rampant and would start in at around the second track. After much research and reading other reviews I tried to see what I could do to alleviate or eliminate the issue all together. Turns out, my Ortofon Blue wasn't at the proper tracking force which was the culprit. After a quick adjustment, the record now sounds better. There's still slight sibilance, but not as bad as before.. So, for all you folks having issues... make sure your cartridge is properly aligned and adequate tracking force is dialed in. Double check your anti skate as well. Good luck!

            I’m loving this copy. There is huge bass. Super clear. Honestly it may be the cleanest sounding record I’ve pulled from a cellophane. Just a brush once around and zero surface noise or pops at all.

              Bass is phenomenal on this issue. Vocals are lacking a bit though. For some reason they seem really subtle and quiet compared to the actual music.

                Picked this up recently (still available in the U.S. if you do some Googling). Sounds very good. Records come packaged in separate plastic sleeves rather than the inner picture sleeves, which is a nice touch and avoids seam splits. The rear cover looks slightly different than pictured here (UPC code is not vertical, no "anti piracy" logo), but matrix etchings match.

                  In spite of all the reviews I think this copy sounds great and I really like the packaging well done

                    This is the version I have except it's a gatefold... but the barcode matches this one. From what I heard, it sounds FANTASTIC.

                      I don’t have an original to compare this reissue one too but I think the dynamics and 3D imaging from my copy are incredible. No sibilance issues. Powerful sound, very clean pressing.
