    Didn't have any issues with shrill sound as described in other posts. Perhaps a pressing issue. Very quiet and flat. Nix mix overall on a great album

      I’m going against the grain here. It’s shrill and shakey sound. I’ll say maybe that is a tape thing, read some things to that effect…. But, this is only a semi enjoyable listen. The sound is recessed and veiled. There is also a lot of sibilance. This might be the “best you can get” from any recent reissue but that doesn’t mean it sounds good.

        My copy share exact same matrix number as the 2017 KPG reissue (https://www.discogs.com/release/10652131-Van-Morrison-Astral-Weeks). Does it mean 2017 copy is simply re-print from the same plate used for this 2009 R1 version?

          What an excellent copy. I’ve been testing out new speakers with old favorites like this, and this really is a stellar pressing of a great album. Extra points for thick cardboard sleeve. Still can get for cheap, highly recommend picking up a copy.

            I don’t think this album could possibly sound any better than this. Stellar mastering and pressing.

              Awesome sound but would it have killed them to put it a lyric sheet or at least something with the songwriting and musician credits? Bare bones.

                Stunner of a pressing. It’s easily the best version I’ve heard. Well worth grabbing a copy.

                  Picked this up for $12CAD used at a record shop about a year ago. I know that was a pretty good price already but it's crazy how prices have risen.

                    Simply as good as a reissue can be. Tip on sleeve, AAA quality, RTI pressing. This may be the definitive version of this classic record IMHO.
