One of the best recordings from the original band on their last release for Zappa/Cohen's Straight Records it's nice to have a first pressing of this masterpiece in great shape. I guess it goes without saying that the band was alongside Black Sabbath and ... See full review

Nice to see the surviving members of the original band back together for a few tracks. it's one of his better solo albums for sure.

I can't find any pressing information on this release. I just assume because it's not listed as an unofficial copy that it was part of the Rhino Records represses of the selected Bizarre/Straight recordings in 2000/2002. If anyone has any insight on this ... See full review

My first LP is a little noisy but nothing overbearing. The second LP is dead quiet. I did pick up the clear/black edition also and that one is a better sounding release with no surface noise. The best parts of this score to me is the cuts from the ... See full review

I just picked up the mono edition from the box set, and I've had the stereo release for some time. I'll have to do a comparison on the stereo and mono editions on this one. A very nice release from the queen of goth. Hey, where would she be without the ... See full review

Probably my overall favorite album from him, and a great sounding white & translucent blue vinyl on this release; I've had mine for over 20+ years and they still sound awesome. Snag one if you can find one at a decent price.

Overall a decent record with score music and sound dialogue from the film. It's kind of a lot of music for one disc, but I figured Universal decided that for cost reasons to release this on one vinyl. It's a worthwhile grab for the price.

Sound quality is good but the pressing of my second LP is pretty off center. I guess I could bore out the hole on it. I always just buy the black vinyl if I can anymore on any of these releases because you never know how this colored vinyl stuff is going ... See full review

Such a great release and probably my overall favorite drop by Trent. I might have to double dip on the repress, but my Nothing/Interscope double black vinyl set sounds really good.

I have the solid orange edition and it sounds pretty good. No movie dialogue to go along with like the Silva Screen edition that was released on a two black vinyl set a few years back. One of the three knock out drops by Carpenter with Halloween and ... See full review

One of the better Elmore Leonard novels adapted to film with this gritty score to go along with, Varese Sarabande finally released this soundtrack on CD with their LP to CD collection set; it's a worthwhile pickup on both formats and they sound great.

His best album in my opinion. it's just a more focused better produced album than TMR. I think this is part of the Zappa Family Trust so it should have an official CD release at some point. I believe the only official CD release was around 1990.

Nice release from Silva Screen. I've never really had a bad release from them. I did buy this heavily discounted from SoundStage Direct so that helped on the purchase of this; it was a little too much for me to consider picking this up at full price.

It's about what I expected at this point. The pressing quality from Nuclear Blast is really good, and it's great to see a Ministry album in 2017/18.

As slavikcc stated thanks for stopping by Chris. I was really impressed by the mastering and the quality of the pressing overall on the two colored discs for this release. I love the different mixes on some of these songs also because I do have a lot of ... See full review

Nice pressing from Death Waltz. I'm always in for a Morricone reissue on vinyl if it's done right. This one is highly recommended.

Still a great sounding old classic that'll never die. I'm surprised with all of the reissues out there on vinyl that this one hasn't had a recent repress. I'm sure one's on the way.

Matador is usually pretty selective on vinyl represses, but this one needs to be considered. The best album by TFUL#282, and one of the best from the Matador catalogue.

Great black vinyl pressing from Mondo. Might be the darkest release from Shore. Highly recommended also.

Not as good as his first release but still worthwhile. I can still give it a spin every once in a while and get a laugh or two. I think this will be reissued on vinyl at some point because he has so little material out there.

I guess he wasn't planning on mellowing in his middle age. One of his most nasty releases...just awesome.

My copy has a pretty good stretch rip at the beginning of side A, but otherwise it sounds good to me. This is the only release that I own from WRWTFWW.

I thought this would get a reissue pressing by this point especially in the day and age of everything under the sun getting repressed. My UK pressing sounds fine I just never thought this was that great of an album and the band had better releases after ... See full review

One of the best reissue pressings that I have in my collection. I think it goes without saying that every reissue should sound as good as this one.

I have the black varient of this pressing. I know that certain people didn't like the movie dialogue on this edition, but I thought it was pretty cool the way it was placed in the two discs. The pressing itself sounds great and it's a 45 speed drop. One ... See full review

More of a collection piece than an actual great structrue of music. It's worth snagging if you're a collector of Bizarre/Straight records, but if not you can leave this by the wayside.

Tough to beat this score and cover art. It's nice to see Waxwork Records had a reissue on this one. A true gem I'm my collection 5/5 all the way.

I'll pick up DAGORED releases if their pressed on black or colored transparent vinyl. My copy is perfect and this is one of my favorite scores from Morricone. I have to say that "Estasi Stellare" is one of my all time favorite cuts from him.

Sounds ok to me for one of these solid gold vinyl drops. I'd rather have it on black, but I'll take it. I figured I was lucky to find one here in the States at my local record shop. I Had one on preorder from a distributor in California but that fell ... See full review

I always thought this "Blue Bizarre" edition was a pressing error when I bought it back in 1992 because every copy that I'd ever come across had the pink Straight labels or just the tan Reprise ones. A legendary recording for sure that influence a ton of ... See full review

It's probably one of the best live recordings ever pressed to wax. Songs like "Sweet Bonnie Brown/It's Just Too Much", "What Goes On", and "Beginning To See The Light" showcase a band at the top of their game. I think this is the best version of "White ... See full review

A mind blowing savage attack of an album that's no wave, avantgrade, and experimental all wrapped up in one release. I don't think I've ever listened to anything quite like this. A truly legendary guitar player!

Much agreed guys, one of the best stoner riff albums ever. I don't think it got its recognition until years after the fact. If you're going to have a collection of five stoner rock albums this needs to be in there...period!!!

A classic if there ever was one, it's Richard & Lindia Thompson's masterpiece. I love the great folk rock tracks like "The Clavary Cross" & "I Want To See The Bright Lights Tonight". The true meltdown of the album is "Withered And Died". A dark release ... See full review

I have three pressings of this release(SST, Blast First, and the pink ORG 043). The 1986 SST edition sounds the best to me. I think this is their best album. It's a great mix of avantgrade and song structure. An SST classic!

Greg Ginn's most vicious guitar licks are on this album. I still think "Loose Nut" & "In My Head" are overall better releases though.

Well pressed vinyl by Waxwork Records once again. The subscription copy that I received is clear as a bell. I love the mastering job that they do on their releases. Great job!
