What is your setup? I had no problem with any of the band's studio albums (S/T, Demon Days, PB, The Fall, Humanz, The Now Now: no skips, pops or crackles).

Got a copy of this pressing and gave it a good clean, nice dynamics and noise-free essentialy, apart from some hiss during the beginning of My Blood

Great sounding pressing with punching low-ends and a nice dynamic range overall

Sounds better than the OOS and Absolution reissues, but still sounds muddy and lacks precision
posted a comment on Oasis (2) - Definitely Maybe. about 1 year ago
Definitely (maybe) the best-souding Big Brother remaster (compared to WTSMG and BHN). Not a marvelous-souding pressing by any means, but its way less fatiguing to the ears than the CD!

Just did a DR analysis of the pressing. While it's nothing groundbreaking it's definitely an improvement from the muddy CD

Old-school Muse fans won't be too keen on this album since it's in the continuity of the singles (though Blockades will maybe strike their attention), but the band pushes its boundaries once again and brings experimentation to a whole new level (much ... See full review

Sounds kind of muffled, definitely an improvement from the CD though

It's not, it's the regular edition in the EU at least. "Virigin vinyl" means the PVC used for the pressing is fresh and was not recycles from previous pressings

While it surely is a great improvement from the CD and you'll be able to hear more details and more clear and punchy bass, it is still quite muddy (Wake is ... See full review

How do I know? My best friend bought one via this link and this is this exact pressing, and the same as mine. This pressing seems to be the only 45rpm as all of the previous pressings (og 2003 pressing included) were 33rpm. As for the 180g, I dont know ... See full review

Record is dead silent and very dynamic right out of the sleeve, a pleasure to the ears and a sort of rebirth for Gorillaz

Or perhaps the first 3250 numbered copies are canadian (my friend got a 3200 one), and the rest (from 3251 to 6500) are European copies. Just my theory.

Mixing is far better than the CD, and I had no issue of two Side D labels nor cracks, highly recommend

Look at the catalog number you have on the spine and/or the sticker

I disagree. Even if the mastering could have been better, the record is a major improvement from the CD and benefits from a wider dynamic range.

Well thanks for the honest and respectful opinion, I enjoyed the album a lot and I enjoy reading thoughts from other people!

Have both this one and the US 2015 reissue by Atlantic/Capitol. EU issues of Coldplay albums are usually the best sounding, and this one is no exception.
posted a comment on Coldplay - X&Y. about 1 year ago
Disappointed by this release. It sounds pretty loud and bad. Get an EU Parlophone pressing instead.

Just got this release, sounds better than the CD and I had not hissing, pops or cracks, but I have to crank the volume up, not sure why it was cut so quietly.

Mine has got Side One on both sides too, I think it's common to every copy of this pressing.

And the answer is even U2's official website states the album as "Songs Of Innocence" : http://www.u2.com/music/Albums/4152/Songs+Of+Innocence

I'm a bit late to the party but I think you got either bad luck or bootlegs. I have this exact issue and the sound is not flat at all, transitions are seamless and it sounds better than the CD
posted a comment on Pink Floyd - The Wall. over 2 years ago
Every track off The Wall find their essence in the fact that this album is meant to be listened to as a whole, just like many Floyd albums, if not all of them.

Compared to the record pressing of You Haunt Me, I think Don't You Worry, Honey really stands out compared to the original mp3s and CD. Great mastering!
As for the packaging, same as You Haunt Me, I love it (especially the back cover) and I still regret ... See full review
posted a comment on Sir Sly - You Haunt Me. over 2 years ago
As for the record itself, I think it lacks some treble and overall I don't feel like there's some improvement from the original mp3s.
Nonetheless I'm really pleased to own this record, the cover is gorgeous and even if there's no lyrics sheet, I don't ... See full review

Wonderful 4-LP packaging, worth every penny. Sleeves are gorgeous, booklet is great and, above all, sound quality is excellent. Thanks for this pressing.

Got this LP last week, record is decent, I like it! One problem though is the jacket size, I'm having a hard time fitting my new inner sleeves in it.

If you consider getting it for its sound you will be disappointed, it does not sound THAT better than the CD

Well as far as I love Linkin Park and this album, there was no need to insult him like this man, he was just giving his opinion on the release and he made some good points here.

Well I find this pressing really disappointing. After tuning my pre-amp a thousand times, it's no use : this pressing suffers from a really poor mastering and I can't really notice any difference between this press and the CD.
