    Sounds good but my copy is warped - pretty poor for a 180 reissue.

      I seem to have a copy of this version and don't like it at all. The inner groove distortion is horrible, the end part of paradise city is just a mess and the vocals are completely gone.
      Avoid this copy.

              For me, this is a solid press. I didn't expect too much, but I'm pleasantly surprised. Very well press and mix - master.

                First 3 tracks on each side sounds amazing; after that there's increasing inner groove distortion. I think you just can't press a heavy album of this length on a single LP, without making compromises. Therefore, I bet it's not an issue on this sole pressing.

                Even though this mix it's a little bit bright, it has enough bass. If you find it cheap, it's a good listening experience.

                  Solid pressing. Great packaging. Foil artwork looks great. SQ is fairly strong.

                    i have found that this pressing sounds great on the first two tracks or so on each side and then it all becomes a bit of a mess from what i assume is inner groove distortion, also the cheapass cardboard inner sleeve is a disapointment.
                    i am running vintage aiwa twin duct bass reflex speakers so i am not noticing any lack of bass like others have.
                    2/5 overall .

                      The sound is superbly crisp in the high end but feels a little weak in the low end. Not much bass on a raw speaker output unless you artificially add it with a subwoofer or such. I cant compare with other releases so perhaps they are all like this, I have experienced the same thing with old and new Led Zeppelin albums and they never really had great bass back then either, its just that its more noticable on the remasters with brighter high end. There seems to be some sound separation issues as well, with instruments that could sound clearer. What I can say is that the press is fine and sleeves just great looking and feeling. I was surprised to find the inner containing lyrics and the original cover "rape" image. Its a good release of the album but if you can find one with better reviews about the low end then go for that instead. Its remastered pretty well but still sounds digitally sourced, like a CD.

                      My review for a 1987 release:
                      Coming from the newer 2015 remasters I have to say its a bit of a different experience. The remasters have that digital aspect to them with great detail but mostly so regarding the high end and with a harsh edge to everything. This is more balanced but a little less clear in the sound. Perhaps its unfair to compare an at best VG+ or so copy to another mint release, so bare that in mind. One negative aspect about that is of course that you want to increase the volume because the music is great and that now being possible due to the balance, but at the same time increasing the pops and crackles. Luckily its mostly noticeable during song transitions. Whatever you prefer in your music you should get, I can see both as having their place. But Im still searching for that perfect release, with the best of both worlds. The Japanese original might be the next place to look. Until then I might prefer and recommend these older issue, especially in NM condition.
