    Love this production! Very clean and deep bass everything is perfect!
    Don’t give up sounds so fine on this one love it!
    • vinylbladerunner's avatar
      Better than US & UK Pressings. The bass is so tight and deep.

        Excellent, dynamic, rich, clear sounding pressing. Sledgehammer sounds amazing. Recommended.

          I agree with previously review, high quality pressing! Especially on Sledgehammer you can heard a deep (and a beautiful) bass line played by master Tony Levin

          Also, no sibilance issue!
