Best album since Infernal Love for me. I've been listening to this a lot. Vinyl sounds excellent, sounding full, heavy and hard. You can pick up signed copies from pledge music for the same price as retail.
Now please, please, please, re-issue ... See full review

The comments here put me off buying this for quite a while, and I was going to buy the newer pressing when i found it at the right price. But I managed to get this version sealed and shipped for €20.
It's perfect. Zero issues and sounds fantastic.

This sounds fantastic. Warm rich and loud. The best I've heard these songs sound. I too thought it was just black vinyl until the sunlight caught hold of it. Inner and outer sleeves/covers are also a very nice quality. Very impressed for something that ... See full review

Absolutely dreadful pressing. Clicks, pops, skips and constant hissing. Rainbo records are now on my blacklist. Avoid Avoid Avoid.

Really impressed with this. Vinyl is high quality, heavy, and sounds great. Packaging is fantastic and the prints are really high quality and would like nice in a frame. This thing is a bargain at the price it's currently going for.

I have been put off buying Metallica re-issues, from the reviews of all the blackened issues, but I took a chance on this. It sounds great, no issues whatsoever. Nice sound, nice poly lined sleeves, and fantastic music. I'm gonna pick up the 2016 Ride ... See full review

This sounds very nice indeed. As it says on the label, turn it up. It really rocks. Vinyl is at least 180g if not more, it's the heaviest piece of vinyl I own.

This is a lovely little package to own. Quality sleeve, flat vinyl, and a great job on the sound. Highly recommended.

The tracks from californication sound a bit muddy and just "wrong" so im assuming they are the same masters as the original vinyl release. Everything else sounds great. Now to find a cheap copy of stadium arcadium!

A brilliant sounding album. Crank this baby up and it sounds stunning. One of nofx's top 3 albums.

A great way to get your feet wet in Ireland's brilliant punk scene. Lots of good copies of this floating around. Highly recommended.

It has taken me ages to track down a good copy of this. NOFX always sound great on vinyl.
posted a review of Soundgarden - Badmotorfinger. about 1 year ago
This sounds warm, tight, and heavy. Soundgarden's best work. Excellent

Extremely quiet pressing, almost too quiet. Very nicely packaged. Great album

I think this record sounds fantastic. Wonderfully mastered, and nice clean vinyl. No stickers in mine and I'm gonna call bullshit on the 180gram, but a well done collection of legendary tunes nonetheless.

This pressing sounds very nice indeed. As good as I've ever heard the album. The inlays pic above has a blue background but mine is white, which is identical to the B2B version from 2008. Now if only they'd release a 2 disc version of Appetite for ... See full review

That, I didn't know! Time to spin it again! Cheers
posted a review of Green Day - Dookie. over 2 years ago
Since in essence this album was so heavily compressed when it was made, I imagine it would be virtually impossible to get a reissue wrong. Thankfully it's as good as it's always been. No different from the CD. But that's not always a bad thing.

Very nice pressing on this. Sounds as good as it ever has.

Record sounds really nice. Very clean pressing and a good job on the mastering. I think this band sounds great.
posted a review of The Doors - The Doors. over 2 years ago
This record sounds beautiful. I quite like the "fake stereo", I find it transcendent.
The sound quality is perfect, puts you right in the room with the band.
This record is so cheap, it's almost a sin not to add it to your collection if you don't have ... See full review

And worse still, they kept the opening skit of "bodycount" in. So it moves from one skit to another which just sounds confusing.
I wonder did they lose the rights to the song?
posted a review of The White Stripes - Icky Thump. over 2 years ago
Nicest record I own.

The packaging is fantastic, the inner sleeves are like velvet and the record was spotlessly clean from new.

But the sound of the record is the strongest point..

You can hear the guitar amps hum and strain themselves in ... See full review

This thing arrived from new in terrible shape. It looked like it had been thrown across the factory floor a couple of times. Luckily after giving it a clean it was in perfect condition.
The record sounds great, I can't fault the sound. The packaging is ... See full review

Great pressing. Everything has a lot of clarity. Dynamics are spot on. I'm not 100℅ sure but I believe these are the original mixes. Highly recommended.

Great sounding album. Needed a bit of a clean from new. For a band with no bass player, the bass sounds great! It's like the white stripes never stopped. Recommended

This seems to be missing a little punch/crunch on the low end. The guitar tracks are very clear but I found myself reaching for the eq and volume dials. If you want this record from new and this is your only option, I'd say go for it. But if you have ... See full review

As already previously mentioned, this has the Steve Albini mixes of Heart Shaped Box and All Apologies although uncredited. The sound of the record is nice and warm. Nirvana's best album.

Fantastic sound from this pressing. Puts the rest of my small collection to shame.
