I was SO disappointed that it didn't include the Miguel Migs remix of "Stronger"! That is one of the best remixes I've ever heard, of any song!

My copy is pretty much perfect...no surface noise on any side. I came on this page and was rather shocked at all the reports of bad copies!

This picture disc is rather outstanding. It's DEAD quiet!! Not a single pop or crackle to be found anywhere. And that telltale soft surface grind that plagues picture discs is completely gone. This is at least on par or better sounding than the recent... See full review

There is a severe inconsistency with this album then, or your ears are damaged. LP1 sounds incredibly sibilant, way too loud, and very distorted while LP2 (at 45 rpm) sounds much more balanced and dynamic. This is my one newer pressing. This is not... See full review

This pressing sounds awful. I can't place my finger on it, but it's like the sound is holding itself back. The vocals sound like they're in a tunnel almost. There's no real clarity, it's muddy and hazy. Really disappointing!

This was an impulse purchase from Vinyl Me, Please. Looked interesting, and the two singles were well done, so I figured what the heck. Gotta say this is one of the best albums I've heard this year! Very creative, and truly extraordinary! Vinyl... See full review

There's no difference. Someone got mad that another person made an entry for it without have the record on hand, so they removed it from the master release and made this entry, instead of just updating the other one. That other one is selected for... See full review

Great sounding album, but Jesus hell what a bloated overly-long record this is! There's nothing about this album that justifies its length. Nothing that ties it all together. It's just a bunch of random songs across two albums' worth of content. Exhausting! See full review

Agreed! This is widely available despite what people think! Ten words.

Update - I'm on my THIRD replacement. These are practically bowl-shaped. Is it Amazon or is it just poor quality control at the pressing plant? I hope her other reissues don't suffer the same fate...

It's definitely a no-frills release, but at least the mastering on it is immaculate! The song sounds amazing.

Cretu has, unfortunately, been doing this kind of thing from the very beginning. After releasing his third album, he packaged the first three albums together as "The Trilogy", all with new artwork. After the first five, he did it again under the... See full review

Absolutely stellar sound quality compared to the original 1990 CD! I'm super impressed! Definitely worth purchasing. However, my copy arrived incredibly warped...I don't think I've ever seen a more warped LP. Therefore, I've ordered a replacement... See full review

This one and The Cross of Changes are in high demand, which is understandable since they are the two Enigma albums that were the most well-known with the biggest hits. Naturally, the reissues of these sold out first. The other albums are still quite... See full review

This is my favorite Enigma album, and I'm pleased to say that the sound quality on this vinyl pressing is superb! I admit it's a very odd album for Enigma standards, and I think that's why I love it so much. It completely broke the mold, which at... See full review

VinylVernon - This sounds like a CD rip to me. It does not sound remastered for vinyl at all.
posted a comment on Guns N' Roses - Greatest Hits. 25 days ago
I never bought the CD so I can't compare it to the original release. But I can tell you the sound quality of this LP release is nothing spectacular. It doesn't sound remastered to me. It lacks depth, bass, and the dynamics leave me wanting.

This record has perfect sound quality. Love that they made the effort on this release!

All of Britney's releases are colored (except Glory). May as well stick to the theme! And the color of this US release is pretty stunning, not to mention the sound quality is pretty great! Nothing wrong with it, IMO.

Very nice pressing, and it should be noted it has a different tracklisting from the original release. It omits a couple of tracks and adds some new ones from the film's instrumental score (some of the more memorable tunes that I had always wished... See full review

I have the US version, and can confirm. It is clear blue with a swirl pattern.

Absolutely beautiful-looking pressing! It says "baby blue" so I was definitely NOT expecting a gorgeous transparent blue vinyl with a nice swirl pattern as well! Sound quality is pretty nice, too, with the b-sides sounding better than the remixes. ... See full review

As with all of Trent's Definitive Editions, it's perfect. No surface noise whatsoever, pristine dynamics, amazing sound altogether. Absolutely worth getting.

My copy arrived a little warped, but it is a superb pressing otherwise! Very quiet, and only the amazing music shines through. This is one of the most underrated electronica albums of all time. I'm so excited to own this on vinyl!

Why is this 36-minute album pressed on 2 LP's? I mean, that's absolutely unnecessary!

bingobronson - It's a live recording. You don't buy those and expect a pristine reproduction of the original track. That said, there's no moment on here where the audience gets in the way without Billie asking them to.

For a picture disc, I have to say this is a pleasantly good-sounding pressing! Very quiet, almost no surface noise. In fact, I can't really recall hearing even one pop or crackle! Just the telltale soft "grinding" noise that all picture discs make... See full review

Yes, nothing "clear" about this coke bottle clear release. It is translucent, but not transparent. Very disappointing.
posted a comment on Nine Inch Nails - Hesitation Marks. 2 months ago
Sorry, have to disagree with this statement. Hesitation Marks may be a decent record, but it's nowhere near as masterful as The Downward Spiral, The Fragile, or With Teeth. Even what came after it (the trilogy of EPs) was superior.

This is superb package! The presentation is gorgeous, with both The Fame and The Fame Monster packaged inside a thick, heavy duty, glossy slipcase. The artwork looks great on it! The Fame sounds really great, and is definitely improved over the... See full review

Judging by how the normal 2xLP sounds, I would expect this would sound like utter crap. I mean, it's a picture disc first and foremost. Then it tries to cram nearly one hour on one LP? Yeah, no.

Great collector's item, but it sure doesn't sound very good! Very loud, lots of inner groove distortion, and the first songs of each side are prone to severe skipping, likely due to the very flimsy vinyl. I get it's a promo, so maybe that's why. ... See full review
