    Scored this today finally. Collection is complete.

    Pressing is incredible, like the rest of the reissues.

      Quiet, flat, and well mastered to vinyl. Excellent price point right now, very pleased with this RE.

        Does anyone know why this pressing doesn't have This Charming Man on it? Low key disappointed :/
        • TAMEPIXIE's avatar
          decided to take a chance on this pressing despite the mixed reviews, because hmv included it in their 3 for £55 deal so i basically got it for free 🙌 but i digress. this is a really nice sounding record imo, i just finished listening to it all the way through and i didn’t notice any dip in quality, all the songs sounded great, very happy with it 🙂

            The original recordings are not, even by a long shot, of "audiophile quality". So unless the CD or LP sounds really bad - and they'd have to make an effort of it, this version should do quite nicely.

              Bought new, flat vinyl with zero surface noise, sounds pretty good to me, maybe a bit less dynamic than the UK and US 1st pressings but definitely worth it and considering how prices on vinyl go sky high very fast if I was you I will buy this now before you'll end up spending three times what's worth today....

                This sounds good to me. Good separation and no problems with the bass or sibilance.

                  Pretty good repress, not the best sounding record I own but I'd say it's enjoyable.

                    Sounds “ok.” Not bad (quiet background, no surface noise, no sibilance) but not great either (somewhat lacking low end, somewhat mushy and compressed as others have stated.) Is it bad for a reissue? No, but it leaves me wanting to hear an original pressing from 1984.

                      Mixed reviews on this. Does anyone know what the source is, i.e. is it a reissue of the original or a reissue of the remaster than Johnny Marr supervised a few years earlier?
