      I swapped between 2019 remaster digital version (apple music 48khz 24bit) and did an ABX test.
      Although I can distinguish the vinyl version for its bass texture, I cannot notice that much difference from the 2019 digital remaster and this 2007 remaster cut vinyl version.
      Guys, this is released in 1979. We all know that this does not use pure analog recording.
      Are you going to say that, you all can hear the subtle difference between the 2007 remaster and the OG ver.?
      And someone mentioned youtube version.
      This is FACT 10
      This is OG German pressing.
      This I would assume is the OG uk version.
      Go ahead and tell me you can hear the, sweetness and darkness and openess and emotion from the OG.
      My eqipment: Sl-1200 mk5, MP-500 cartridge.

        After almost 2 years in my collection, I still think the record is great from what you can get. Background noise is noticeable at high volumes, no warp and no scratches. Soundwise, wouldn't say it's much better than 320 kbps mp3, does seem compressed, but isn't the end of the world. For the price, it's nice to have.
        Edit: although I have it for some time, still has only 2nd sticker, so "later edition"; also no download code.

            Very disappointed with this reissue. Sounds claustrophobic and overly compressed. This remaster narrowed the soundstage and squashed the dynamics. I would avoid this one if these things are important to you. Some guy uploaded a rip of an older press to Youtube that sounds way more spacious and atmospheric. Listen to that until you scrape the cash together for an older press. Such a shame to ruin a classic as they've done here.

                Nice texture сover. Thick and heavy disc. Very silent mass. Vocals is very realistic. Wide stereo scene. Some tracks little bit more compressed.

                  One of those records that sounds phenomenal from the first few seconds. Now I want to know what’s wrong with all my other ones!

                    As a couple of other people have already noted this is suffering from over compression. No dynamic range. Save your money folks.

                      Alot of hiss there and it´s not my cartridge. Im afraid this is due to a very high compression. Sad to hear the album that way. At least it way cheap. Definitely looking for an older pressing now.
