    Cut loud and very dynamic. Not as good as ANATO, but nearly.

      The sound is just fantastic, I'm speechless. Even though my record has some noises, I don't even notice them, I hear only music.

        What a great sounding record! Despite its age (bought second hand) my pressing has very little surface noise and the sound quality doesn't seem to have deteriorated at all. Clarity is phenomenal. Separation is terrific, and everything just sounds very punchy and dynamic. It's all very well balanced. Love it!

          Is the peach coloured inner sleeve with a photo of the band on one side standard?

            I found what looks like an insert which is supposed to be a letter from Groucho Marx to Queen about how the album title is also the name of one of his movies. I can’t find any info on this. Was wondering if it’s something that came with the album or not. Thanks for any info
