Contrary to the many detractors on here, this is a perfectly good reissue of this great album. The inside of the gatefold isn't that well-scanned but the back and front covers look great, and the record itself is as good as you could ask for - flat,... See full review

Could be that it's the UK translucent vinyl/white sleeve version but then vinyl has turned dark red with time/UV exposure or something? I know something similar has happened to some copies of Speaking In Tongues by Talking Heads that came on clear... See full review

Just bought a copy from the Rhino store myself all these months later, so it's obviously not as in-demand as some sellers on here are hoping!

This is still available direct from Rhino - and for considerably less than it seems to be selling for here - so it's probably worth buying it there if you want it.

Pretty sure it's the 2007 remaster - the 40th anniversary version of Unknown Pleasures was too IIRC. Sounds good though - the pressing is really nice and quiet etc.

Anyone else's copy a lot clearer than expected? Mine's almost totally transparent but with a small amount of black smoke. I assume it's just a variation in the vinyl mix - not a complaint since it still looks cool - just a heads up for anyone who... See full review

This got reissued today via the Horse Lords bandcamp page. $18 plus shipping (worked out about £27 total to the UK), so don't get scalped here or elsewhere - support the band (and the BLM movement if you buy this weekend) and buy direct from them!

Same issue with the inner sleeves here, though I have no problems with the audio/pressing on my copy - sounds & plays flawless.

posted a comment on The Cure - Pornography. about 1 year ago
Does anyone know if either the other EU reissue or the US version any different to this version sound-wise? For me it feels like the entire album's been run through a really heavy brick-wall limiter - absolutely no dynamic range whatsoever. I can only... See full review

While the first copy of this that I bought had a pressing flaw, the replacement copy sounds flawless on both sides. Perhaps complaints regarding the sound quality on side 2 come from not knowing what the "Dome sound" is like? The tracks on side 2 are... See full review
posted a review of David Bowie - 1. Outside (The Nathan Adler Diaries: A Hyper Cycle). about 1 year ago
I pre-ordered this shortly after it was announced, as it’s one of the Bowie albums I’d wanted the most for a fair while. I was concerned by the comments on other Friday Music Bowie reissues, but really I don’t see any problem with this one. The images... See full review

Could be that the numbers are random & non-sequential? I know the numbered white vinyl version of Bowie's No Plan EP was numbered totally randomly, supposedly with no relation to the number released (which has never been published), so it could be a... See full review

Having bought numerous records pressed by GZ for multiple different labels, I don't see issues on anything like the scale of some people on here. Maybe I've been lucky but probably 80% of the GZ pressings I own (both black and coloured vinyl) are... See full review
posted a review of Organisation - Tone Float. about 1 year ago
Artwork is more than a little blurry but the pressing is really nice. Heavy vinyl, great sound quality. If you're willing to settle for slight iffy cover art, this boot is well worth a shot. Beats paying three figures for an original!

It's just the way the web image came out - it's supposed to be black. I'm about to upload some new images of the actual physical release as per the database guidelines, so they should be more accurate.
