    A great modernization, but no substitute for an old pressing from the time of release. Great punch and bass, but lacks in dynamics. Sounds very "modern". Came in great condition and packed well in a poly-inner. Get this, as long as you don't expect that vintage sound of the seventies.

      So pleased to see this in more shops I’ve been visiting recently. It really is an incredible pressing and for anyone starting out the audio quality will stand out compared to most. Highly recommend

        Exceptional quality pressing - very happy with it although haven't compared with any original pressings.

          The pinnacle artist statement by Queen.
          The 2005/2011 CD Ludwig is the best version of this so far. Like all the 2015 1/2 speed pressings it’s boomy so you have to roll off the bass!

            After hearing this album in the 70's I always wanted to buy one but never did... so release of 2015 I decided to go, no regrets

              I'm very happy with this pressing and I think most of average listeners would be too.

                Sounds incredible. This is an outstanding pressing. Grab a copy.

                  This is a confusing pressing for me; it is great, purists be damed. I appreciate it did not shy from the playful stereo effects of the 70's, it just adds digital precision, it has a holographic 3.1 like stereo that I adore. However I struggle to figure it out, because being a cut of the 2011 remaster it doesn't sound identical to its Hi-Re streaming brother, I find the remaster great but slightly compressed (, the vinyl cut wins just a decibel of dynamic range over the streaming version but it makes a lot of difference. What happened on the way from Hi-Re remaster to 1/2 speed Vinyl? I cannot tell and I do not care, take my word it is the best physical medium of the 2011 remaster, the low difference in dynamic range in comparison to the original (DR 10 vs 12) is compensated by the other positive attributes to the mix, it is definitely the choice for a lesser system but good enough to shine in an expensive equipment.

                    I have compared it with a 76 french pressing, and this reissue is quite desapointing. It may sounds attractive but actually it's too bassy, and lacks of details and dynamic. I have sold this one and kept the original, even if the record is barely in G+ condition.
