Mine sounds really good. No complaints. It's an indie rock record. You can't expect Steely Dan on this kind of LP, but my copy's still quite nice.

It's not difficult to make a case for this being Kansas' finest hour. This is such an amazing record! One of the best album covers of all time too. Find an original copy-- they are not hard to find, and it's worth it. No modern reissue will ever equal ... See full review

Let me be the first to report that this sounds KILLER. If you're a fan of this album, the remaster is more than worthwhile. Superb pressing quality and extremely quiet.

One of the best electronica albums... maybe ever. It absolutely bumps. This pressing sounds amazing, silent background. Poly lined inner sleeve. Only weird thing is it shipped without shrink wrap, just open in a regular plastic sleeve.

Mine sounds great. Definitely better than the original 1990 CD and the 2018 LP reissue.

My favorite CW album. New 2019 MOV reissue can be had on Juno Records for about $33 inc shipping to USA. Cheaper than Amazon.com or Amazon.co.uk. https://www.juno.co.uk/products/catherine-wheel-adam-eve-reissue/742572-01/

Absolutely stunning sound on this pressing. Notice that there has never been a remastered vinyl version of this album. Why mess with perfection? This is is how it was meant to be heard and cannot be improved upon.

This Canadian supergroup no one saw coming (Neko Case in an indie pop band? Wha?) debuted with Mass Romantic, one of the best records of the early '00s, an unstoppable barrage of power pop hooks, song after amazing song. Though they slumped ever so ... See full review

Excellent 1982 compilation of the Simple Minds' earliest singles. Before "Promised You A Miracle", long before "Don't You Forget About Me" or "Alive & Kicking"... I am pleasantly surprised by how kick-ass this early material is. More original and ... See full review

Big Country's third full length album gets the deluxe double LP treatment, similar to the excellent MOV version of The Crossing. There's no mention of remastering, but I can say unequivocally this sounds miles better than the original 1986 vinyl. That ... See full review

Mine is great overall, but I noticed a second of distortion toward the beginning of "Gospel" where the piano goes out of tune. I checked against the digital version and it's not there. Anyone else have this?

Those who last listened to UNKLE with 1998's landmark Psyence Fiction have been missing out on a remarkable artistic evolution. James Lavelle's genre-fluid music project has gone from trip-hop experimentalism to something massively genre defying. To call ... See full review

I think it sounds great, and I'm very picky. It compares well to the SQ of the 2017 reissue of EIther/Or (but not as good-- perfection is hard to match). Only problems were some surface noise on "Waltz #1" and the record is slightly bowled.

Excellent pressing. If I had to pick R.E.M.'s best album, I'd have to say this one has a slight edge over the others. Why? The variety of songs from rockers ("Turn You Inside Out") to folky ballads ("Hairshirt"). Their best song ever ("World Leader ... See full review

Worth noting that the CD is different from the streaming version of the album. Rather than playing as one seamless, continuous sequence, the CD contains the "un-mixed" versions of the tracks. Probably for the sake of DJs who play ambient music, I guess?

Thievery Corp would never again match the stony cool of this album.

Track 1, "A Warning" sounds like it has distortion/clipping on mine. Does anyone else's have this issue?

Unfortunately, this is not a repress of the 1996 original 2xLP. It does not have the same 13 tracks. Instead, it appears to be a lazy reproduction of the 2006 CD reissue, with four bonus cuts, "Assault On Babylon" replacing "Walking Through Babylon", ... See full review

An album best listened to on vinyl. Digital audio has what sounds like distortion/clipping. With the custom outer sleeve, and good solid playing vinyl, this is a premium release.

Compared this to another 1983 US translucent purple copy that I had, and this one is louder! Not sure if it's a different pressing plant or if the stamper was just hotter on this one. This is a seriously great sounding record.
