Thanks for your helpful review. A lot of reasons NOT to buy this compilation, especially as I hate everything related to the loudness war.

  spiderjerusalemOX: There is no other sleeve than the tri-fold sleeve. My copy has not listed "Stagger Lee" on its back sleeve.

  WhatCheer: Just remove the word „instrumental“ from your definition of ambient music and it EXACTLY matches what the album is all about.

Fantastic sound and pressing quality. Dead quiet and flat wax. So nice to get 2 songs from Older on vinyl while we have to wait for a repress. Hopefully...

Always a matter of taste :-) Listening to his music for 25 years as well and I think „Push the sky away“ is his absolute masterpiece.

Thanks! I have one of the early pressings but never liked the sound of it so this might be the one to go for.

Yes, the pressing quality is outstanding.
Yes, the mastering is great.
Yes, the packaging and artwork are nice.
And yes, I appreciate the poly-lined inner sleeves.

But oh my God, what a boring and disappointing album that is. It does not deserve the ... See full review

Can anyone confirm the pressing company of this version? I assume it is GZ Vinyl as there is a „CZ“ in the runout groove. And how about the sound and pressing quality of it?

Sounds much better than the original CD version. Pressing quality is very good, almost no background noise. Noticeable decreasing sound quality on the last track of side 1 and 2 though. Heavy cardboard quality sleeves but difficult to move the discs ... See full review

I appreciate your feedback, thanks! I only have the black EU pressing and I never liked the overall sound of the production and pressing.

Cannot share your enthusiasm at all. Still sounds heavily compressed and full of loudness (average dynamic range on the original CD was at 6db and is only at 8db for this remastered vinyl version). My ears start ringing after 15 min of listening. The ... See full review

Pressing is nothing more than ok, noticeable surface noise. But the mastering is sh*t, which is no surprise as it’s done by Vlado Meller, the Godfather of brickwall mastering and loudness war. Close to distortion on high volumes. And no, my system runs ... See full review

Very nice release. Sounds quite good although the sound quality/mastering slightly varies between the tracks from the different eras. I always was not very happy with the song selection though. I mean Drive (!) is missing from a Best of 1988-2003. Come ... See full review

Wow, what a huge disappointment! It starts so good: plastic protection sleeve, nice glossy gatefold, poly lined inner sleeves. But then the first look at disc 1: plenty of flow marks, enclosed particles and even one enclosed hair!! No surprise that ... See full review

Discs are centered, flat and quiet but it‘s only 132 gr instead of the advertised 180 gr. Sound is ok, not more. Sounds more compressed to my ears than the CD versions. Both inner sleeves came with a seam split as the paper is cheap and super-thin.

Perfect sounding vinyl. Some surface noise on quiet parts of side 3 and 4. Slightly warped but fortunately not audible. Sleeves are very nice but not poly-lined.

No problems with my copy, very nice sound and totally flat vinyl. Almost no surface noise. Only thing I am missing is a poly-lined inner sleeve.

Very nice packaging. Sound is ok and better than the original CD version but still not perfect. I guess this is related to the production itself and not the vinyl. Still to much static during quite parts from my point of view, even after wet cleaning. ... See full review

Very good mastering, ok pressing. A lot of static in the quiet passages and tons of cardboard dust on the disks. You better have them wet cleaned before listening. Sleeves are too tight to fit the inner sleeves easily and no poly-lined inner sleeves, ... See full review

How is the sound and pressing quality of this release? The EU version is very disappointing.
posted a review of Metallica - Metallica. 11 months ago
Wow, this sounds really great. Nice punch on the low end. Just a bit of crackle during the quiet parts. Only thing that I miss to be a perfect edition would be printed inner sleeves instead of the printed insert. Discs are flat and centered.

Shitty pressing as already stated many times below. Wanted to sell it immediately until I heard From her to Eternity. Fantastic version and due to the heavy nature of the song you can‘t hear the damn crackles.

Pros: Great packaging, printed inner sleeves, heavy and flat vinyl.
Cons: Bad mastering, way too loud and therefore poor dynamics. Lots of static.
posted a review of U2 - Achtung Baby. 11 months ago
This release sounds very good and the packaging is absolutely beautiful but let‘s be honest: if you already own the original pressing you may skip this reissue without any regrets as the original version sounds great as well.

posted a review of U2 - Songs Of Innocence. 11 months ago
What a poor pressing. Crackling all the way and very distorted parts especially on A3, B2 and C1. Unlistenable and a typical GZ pressing. Avoid at all cost. I will try the US version instead.

I think it still sounds overloaded and compressed. Miles away from the outstanding productions in the 80s/90s.

posted a comment on Trentemøller - The Last Resort. about 1 year ago
I second this, fantastic pressing. One of the most silent vinyls I've ever heard. Songwriting is a bit monotonous from time to time when compared with i.e. Booka Shade's Movement from the same period of time.
