    A very powerful version of this modern classic.Mid range is strong and places the band and vocals in your room.Separation and transparency are good,clarity is like nothing I've heard in a long time.Bass lovers also get their full share.Dynamics are breathtaking,and DMM further adds to the almost overwhelming performance of this record.So this is a perfect recording- perfect yes,but not audiophile.
    It's hard to put a finger on it,but it almost sounds to me like there's too much of everything.Also the clean and perfect sound got tiring on my ears.By the time I was well into side B it kind of felt like listening to a CD.
    So I'm really on the fence about this one.
    Of course it is stunning to hear Vinyl perform like this,and it sure is a recording to successfully show off your equipment.But to me there's something missing here,a quality often described as analog or artisan.
    I'm aware of course of the controversy that's been going on ever since the dawn of digital audio;no room to dwell on that here.
    To each his own; and since analog productions abound and are up for market ubiquitously,I'm gonna pass on this one.

      I just got this very cheep ( must have been a lot of vinyl pressed?) sounds lovely! Dead quite . Sounds better than my CD.

        This LP was cut from the CD master.
        If you make a digital recording of the LP at at least 48 kHz and look at a spectogram you will see that there's a sharp cut-off just above 20 Kzh. I've done this with both the American and the European LP.
        So, this means that if you like how this LP sounds over the CD, it's simply because you prefer the frequency response of your phono cartridge, the effect of rumble, less channel separation in the cartridge, etc.
        There's absolutely nothing wrong with preferring that, but it's simply a preference and not higher fidelity. Unless using a very poor converter (and they're much less common than many people believe) digitization is an inaudible process. I have yet to meet a person who claimed that digitization is audible who has actually properly tested that claim.

          This is a fantastic album, a big breakthrough for REM, and this is a great sounding, high quality German pressing.
