posted a review of M People - Bizarre Fruit. 11 days ago
I always thought this album sounded somehow "lifeless" on CD (as all "Deconstruction" CD releases back in the early 90s). There was always a lack of clarity and a lower volume, compared to all other releases back in the time.
This is definitely not the ... See full review

You are the one who has the problem, so the question is... what’s wrong with your set up and not with the ones, which have no problems?! And by the way... Ortofon 2m Red is not a good cartridge (it’s just a better one between the cheap ones)
posted a review of Maggie Reilly - Midnight Sun. about 1 month ago
Unfortunately in terms of vinyl quality, this pressing is very bad... Too much surface noise, even on a NM unplayed copy! Not quiet at all, the sound is flat and lifeless and there's inner groove distortion even with a microline stylus.
The CD mastering ... See full review

I love this album and especially this edition. It's the only edition including "Angel" & "Find me" with the amazing vocals of Plavka!
Although "Stella" & "Right in the night", which are here included in their Full-Lenght Versions, have been major hits ... See full review

I will never regret buying this.
The best edition "The Immaculate Collection" has ever been released!
Soundwise AAA+++ and the colored records are very beautiful!
No surface noise, no loudness war, no compressed sound, no problems with misprinted labels.

This is what I call a first class pressing!
The vinyl records are yellow (not transparent yellow) and for colored vinyl records which are most of the times noisy, these records are "dead silent" between the songs! The mastering is also superb. I can turn ... See full review

Visually it's a very beautiful edition. The transparent pink vinyl records look great!
Unfortunately soundwise I can't say the same thing... The sound is compressed. Very compressed!
It looks like a vinyl, but sounds like a CD. It's one more example of ... See full review

This is THE EDITION to buy!!! Full dynamics, totally different from the brickwalled original CD edition. It's not just a transfer from the digital source of the CD to vinyl in lower volume (as many LP's out there). The purple vinyl looks very beautiful, ... See full review

For my personal taste this edition sounds very good! The (exclusive for this edition) remastered sound is not loud or brickwalled. You can turn the volume up as much as you wish, without getting headache after 1 or 2 songs, without distortion or pumping ... See full review

U got 2 know, the 2nd album by Cappella, was their biggest hit-album back in the 90s, including singles as "U got 2 let the music", "Move on baby" and "Move it up".
The Greek edition includes an extended version of the "Short Sharp Mix" of "U & Me", ... See full review

Unfortunately they didn't used the original master tapes of each individual track for this re-release.
What you hear is the 1999 24bit Remastered CD of ABBA Gold, pressed on vinyl!
OK... it could have been worse. The original 1992 release sounds totally ... See full review

Unfortunately all CD editions are the same. The European Edition is also a victim of the loudness war. The only way to go with Within Temptation is vinyl! As long as they don’t remaster their entire album-discography, keep away from their CD releases.

I can only agree with the reviews of slush82 & alexhassen54...

First of all the white vinyls are visually amazingly beautiful! There is no surface noise, the sound is clear as if it was pressed on a regular (black) record and ... See full review

The dynamics are very very good. The front and back cover is glossy and looks amazing!
This album has been released including 2 different versions of "U & Me" and not all editions in Europe are the same. On the Greek LP is a version included which is the ... See full review

I can ONLY agree with you!!!
I hate these poor and loveless ZYX compilations, full of unknown versions, without booklets and victims of the loudness war.

I have to confirm the problems mentioned from another user.
At the end of side 3 the sound is noisy due to debris stuck and unfortunately the last song is unplayable while fading out. The needle stucks just 10" before the end of the song!

What a stunning sound! Quiet (really QUIET!!) pressing, clear sound, well mastered! Recommended if you haven't got any other LP Edition. I'm very happy with this! If this was released with a gatefold cover... it would be perfect!!

Well... the album is a masterpiece! The gatefold cover of the album is also amazing. But unfortunately I'm not impressed from the sound! The mastering is very good, but in some parts on 2 of the 3 vinyls the sound is a lot "noisy" between the songs! A ... See full review

If you ever listen to the LP Edition of "Don't Bore Us - Get To The Chorus! (Roxette's Greatest Hits)", one thing is for sure... you will never listen again to any CD compilation of Roxette. The mastering is UNIQUE and SUPERB!!! This album couldn't have ... See full review

Dynamic mastering, no loudness war, you can turn the volume up as much as you wish... but the (white) vinyl itself is a little bit noisy between the songs. I guess this has got to do with the quality of the colour of the pressing. It could have been ... See full review

The 30th Anniversary (CD) Edition of Look Sharp hasn't been re-remastered specially for this release. It's just the brickwalled 2009 version in lower volume, so that "it seems" it's not one more victim of the loudness war. Go for the LP if you want a new ... See full review

Absolutely quiet pressing, crystal clear sound, very well remastered (no loudness war), in 2x 180gr LP's.
Never heard the Spanish Versions of ABBA so clear (on Vinyl)!

Don't want to break your heart, but the original LP release from 1992 is worse. Totally harsh & thin sound and with a great lack of bass.

@ Yeinaliz ABBA Gold has sold 30 million copies worldwide (as of 2018) and is one of the best selling albums ever! So... eat your cake and get outta here...

It’s by far the best remastered vinyl I have ever heard! No loudness war, no distortion on the inner grooves, amazingly clear sound! I’ll go so far and will say that it even sounds better than the CD release of 1993/1994 and even better than the ... See full review
