    Quiet vinyl, no clicks and pops, great sounding pressing. Can only recommend this version.

      Hmmm…not the best sounding of the Bowie reissues. A little flat, not very dynamic and the mix is kind of muddled. Instrument separation is lacking. Not cut very hot. Still better than the CD — no horrible sibilance / overmodulation on the track Fame.

        Very flat, very clean and great sound. First time I played this, there were skips everywhere, mainly on Side B. Every subsequent listen has been perfectly fine though, so take caution and don't sell immediately if it skips

          Great sounding version for me to properly listen to this Bowie album to for the first time having not really given it the time of day before.

            This 'Young Americans' pressing is one of the better Bowie Parlophone reissues, and it's definitely a good starter copy. It's warm and rich, which is a sound that many people like. However, I prefer the tan label RCA original. It's much brighter, but it's got much better soundstage detail and vocal/instrument separation; you can literally hear the post-nasal drip on that one. In comparison, this reissue sounds thicker and not necessarily in a desired way, but I can see why many would enjoy it.

              Surprised to see so many positive reviews of this pressing, I returned my first and found that the second had a similar issue with skipping & scratches. I may well have gotten unlucky, but I would advise a different pressing.

                Sounds Incredible!! Nice pressing. Every track is great but the "Somebody Up There Likes Me" track get's me up off the couch and dancing every time.

                  Superb remastering and packaging. The current Bowie RM RE have been spot-on, and are your ‘go to pressings.

                    Fantastic! Clean, flat and flawless pressing. Dynamic with a nice sound stage. It has a full, warm, rich and expansive sound. I got mine from Amazon. This one was done right!

                      Absolutely incredible, like all of the Parlophone reissues I've heard. Cannot recommend enough, Long Live The Duke!
