    This sounds great for an LP that has 56 minutes of material on it - that's hard to do. Could it sound better on 2 discs instead of 1? Sure, but is it necessary? Not in my opinion.

    My only gripe is that the disc came in a paper sleeve, which meant it was scuffed and a bit dirty. A dry brush helped though and there are no audible or other defects.

    Definitely a good value purchase!

      After seeing these shitty reviews I was worried but hell, this is great. And all these songs on one disc. Come on people.

        This sounds perfectly fine. Compared to the original, no different. If anyone can hear a difference, they must have ears of a Kryptonian.

          Me gusta muchooo como suena pero en la mayoría de temas siento que le falta peso(el bajo suena muy delgado) sin embargo los temas “acústicos” suenan realmente hermosos, otro detalle sería que aveces siento que la voz suena muy bajita pero en general me gusta mucho.
          Las guitarras suenan muy bien.

            Great collection of Smiths' songs, which comes on a single (thick) disc, makes you wonder how many songs fit on a single side...
            Quality is good, I won't say it has the clarity of the best out there, but it's certainly good enough.
            Dead silent too.
            Happy to have it in my collection!

              I’ve been on the fence about getting this due to the varying comments. Well I finally ordered one as to save wear on my original. I must say this sounds utterly fantastic. So glad I got this.

                If like me, you cannot afford any OG Smiths studio releases, grab a reissue of this very fine compilation and enjoy. A really nice curated song list, including some B-Sides and well-known Smiths classics("Charming Man", "How Soon Is Now", "Heaven... Miserable Now"). Nice jangly guitar from Messier Marr, and vocals are clean and out front.

                I've got no issues with this pressing. It is clean with decent dynamics and a nicely established soundstage. Silent vinyl. Frequency range is reasonable enough. Four stars. Recommended.

                  Mine sounds fine. I’ve still got my original and the difference is negligible. Bear in mind, a lot of these tracks are radio sessions anyway so they’re never going to sound audiophile. And the original album hardly sounds like Trevor Horn produced it.

                    This record is classic. It does not sound like compilation but more like an album. This is my favorite. I have it on cassette tape that sounds great. That's the reason this is the first Smiths record I bought on vinyl. I want to hear it raw. But the pressing is so poor. They compressed 16 songs in just one disc, and the result is bad. Its so flat and weak, like listening to a signal from Proxima Centauri. I'm so disappointed. 5 stars for the record and 1 star for sound quality.

                      Almost an hour of Music on a single Vinyl. No wonder it sounds dull and silent. Dissapointing, such a good Compilation would have earned a 2x vinyl release.
