    I simply adore this record. The best-sounding one in my collection. Always such a joy to listen to.

      This definitely one of my favorite records. the sound quality is just amazing. The dynamics bring all the instruments to live. The guitar solo in “I Don’t Believe In You” hits you deep. Every time I listen to this record I hear something new.

            agree with many of the comments from others - make no mistake, this is an audiophile quality pressing of an amazing album.

              I streamed this for a couple weeks to see if I wanted to buy it on vinyl since I was not familiar with many of the songs. So now I’ve bought this on vinyl and oh my, what a world of difference in sound from digital streaming. Absolutely stunning sound quality and wouldn’t be surprised if this 2012 release hasn’t gone through any digital processes since it’s 1986 original analog release.

                I can only echo what others here have said. A great album, clearly mastered with loving care and given the best possible presentation on the format.

                    This sounds divine. Really, what a sound. And probably the best album of the 80s

                      Incredible, full sound. I know that the last two records are more acclaimed and I love them too but uniting that later artistic ethos with pop songcraft might've been more difficult.
