    This repress is AMAZING! Such a GREAT pressing! Forget the fact that this is a must-own New Order release, and in my opinion, the MOST important. It has been tremendously hard to get on vinyl and would've cost a pretty penny if I did not wait for this. I am so glad I did because this is the best I've ever heard it. Quiet, punchy, expansive, and as clear as a bell. Don't hesitate.

      Their pinnacle collection of songs and sequencing. Glad they reissued, I missed a golden opportunity to purchase the OG but was sold before I was able pick it up. Sounds good to me. Pressing was spot on. Highly recommended!

        Couldn't be happier. Sounds incredible. Also cannot belive how quiet this pressing is. Well done.

          Incredible pressing. Dynamic, lush and beats anything else released for this.

            Not hearing any issues at all with my copy. I think they did I great job with this. "Blue Monday" will pound the hell out of your walls and it damn well should!

              For anyone who had the same pressing issue I did with the first 30 seconds of Sides A+B making your stylus jump off the record... Amazon just restocked. I just got my new copy from them and Sides A+B play perfectly now.

                I purchased the new remaster and a OG first press Australian pressing and spent a week doing an A/B comparison. The difference between them is very obvious and I suspect the people that stated there was little difference are going by memory. The new remaster is quiet and bass boosted but the OG has so much more clarity and detail of all instruments. The drum/beats have such detailed attack as is the bass compared to a “blurred” less distinct remaster. There is also better separation of instruments and less compression in the OG. The OG is a much more involved experience and I returned the remaster. Hope this helps anyone considering which one to buy. Equipment: Rega P3, Quintet black cart, Naim amp, Dali Epicon 6 speaker.

                  Aside from what has been reported about the pressing…the music is fantastic! This record was a top 5 in my collection when it came to songs and performance.

                    Pressing sounds great except for the slight fuzz on B1 which goes away quickly and you really have to be listening for it. I A/B'd it with a digital version of the original master, and it seems like it's there as well, just much fainter. This pressing is definitely crisper and more dynamic than the original. Overall I'm pretty happy with it.
