Just received my copy! Beautiful gatefold, nice, the sound is also very good but the B-Side has lots of clicks and crackles in between! I'll return my copy and hopefully the other will be better! It is still very nice listening pleasure but hey... See full review

Great reissues! However anyone noticed that all their great reissues from RYO FUKUI and Hiroshi Suzuki are "copied" from the japanese Project:Re Vinyl label using the same new artworks (remastering? - not sure). So, anyone waiting for a new We Release... See full review

The same for me, I also received a new copy with totally different labels. This must be a repress of the "limited edition"! Everything's else except the labels looks identical to the pictures here...

I can't share the opinions about good sound quality here! There is almost no High End, frequencies are drastically cut from 10khz!!! Even compared to the cheaper Scorpio reissue this album sounds totally dull... disappointing as the sleeve and... See full review

Definitely no bootleg! hhv.de do only legally licensed products! That's for sure!

Mastered from mp3 is bullshit... why should they do this? hhv always brings out quality releases, and there are at least enough CD copies around... compared the sleeve with the original one, you can see, that the original one looks better, but for me... See full review

Very disappointing... from hhv I'mm used to get great pressings with clear sound and almost no background noise. On my copy there is constant crackling on the right side of the speakers... compared it to my original pressing and will return to hhv...... See full review

Overall this reissue sounds good to me, except side f, which sounds partially distorted especially Tarzan and Sunshine! Anybody else? I don't have the original copy from 2005 to compare...

Just to add: My copy doesn't play with crackling surface noise... maybe these bad pressings - which others are claiming - occured with later represses (without mentioning)...

BEWARE! Terrible sound quality, indeed, the pressing is quiet without surface noises and crackles BUT terrible remastering, too compressed, way too much highs - I don't have an original to compare but the difference will be worlds! Light distortion on... See full review

This is really one out of 50 remastered reissues that significatnly sound better than the original! I've directly compared the original pressing with this reissue (with levels adjusted) and quickly decided to sell my original copy...

I can also confirm that my pressing is flawless... great sound!

Yes, this is really remastered! And some tracks really differ A LOT!!! And I have to say in a positive way, the original was mixed with way too much low end and misses clear mids and highs. To me the remastered version sounds way better! I have... See full review

Where is the vinyl version? Silly decision of Def Jam, not to release this on wax - and this is in the time of the great vinyl revival boom...

Indeed, compared to the original ones, these Fifth Dimension bootlegs have bad quality! Nothing for audiophile listeners like me! Besides I don't like to support bootleg labels! Stop the piracy!

Better keep your hands away from that copy! I just compared this (bootleg) reissue with the proper Sureshot reissue and the Sureshot sounds way much better!!! Really big sound difference!

I can't share the positive feedback on the sleeve! This looks way too dark! Big difference to the original artwork...

On the surface the LP doesn't look too clean (checked on two different copies). I compared the sound to the Golden Pavillon release. The sound of the Schema release is more open, has more treble and less bass. The total level of the two vinyl releases... See full review

Sorry guys - my mistake! The sound of the LP is ok! It is qite loud and also quite saturated but not distorted, it was my preamp that was overdriven...

The complete album sounds totally distorted! Bad bad mastering!!! Classic album with such a bad sound is a real shame! Better look for the original, if you'd like to spend a few more bucks...
