    If sonics are considered an important factor,this original is a winner.Great dynamics and punch in the low end make the eerie music fill your room. Superb clarity along with good separation and transparency contribute to an imaging and sound stage way above par.
    MPO of France hit one out of the park here- vinyl is flat, glossy,flawless and super quiet between tracks.
    And of course the format(12"45rpm)helps a lot to create that immersing listening experience;a priori wouldn't have considered it necessary for this style of music and the drum computer,a posteriori it seems indispensable.

      Along with Alice and Temple Of Love this was The Sisters at their peak.
