    Wowza, I had an original US pressing of this originally that I thought sounded a little flat since it had a bit of surface noise, but then I found a clean original UK press of this to replace it. This is such a huge soundstage of a pressing, like Kate is sitting right front of you.

    If you can’t find a Japanese press of this (which for this one, I will say still hits a home run), the UK press is a great second choice. Pick it up if you see it in the bins of your local store!

    Hounds of Love being her best album? Nah, as much as I love that album, Dreaming is her best from front to back.

      Obvious quality of the music itself aside this pressing sounds incredible. I have a slightly noisy copy and it's still one of the best sounding records in my collection.

        The Wikipedia page for ‘The Dreaming’ (song not album) states that the didgeridoo backing originally contributed by Rolf Harris was replaced during a 2018 remaster following his conviction for sexual assault. Yet the 2018 releases for this album still credit Rolf Harris. Anyone know more about this?

                    The best album ever released by Bush it's not Hounds Of Love or Aerial.
                    It's The Dreaming.

                      There is beyond genius. You cannot really critique this album because it is the only point of reference. It would be like describing infinity. Only the really brave can hear it. You have to listen beyond the music to get it. To call this album a masterpiece would be under selling it!
