Garbage. My copy arrived with a little piece chipped of the side of the record as well as some black powder / residue on the record (never seen anything like this). VPI cleaning did not help. Noisy and was returned.

"It won't complete with your 2 disc 45 rpm analog sourced reissue" - there is no such reissue for this record. The only decent one right now (early 2019) is Speaker Corner from 2006, long gone, and not 45...

Yes. The stupid remixed and modified version is called "movie!" and not "movies"

Not a great pressing. Noisy from the beginning even after VPI cleaning. Very narrow lead in, when I turn on my turntable the needle sometimes shoots over part of the first song. Disappointing over all although the music is of course good.

My copy is just fine. Given the ratings I see here, most must be.

Loyal to the original album. But in this case it's a bad thing. the bass is pretty much inaudible, like it always was until this was remastered for it's 2nd cd incarnation. Which is the likely source of the lp by the waxtime label, which in this special ... See full review

The sound is clear enough for a live recording, but it sounds digitally compressed. The cymbals are ear-shattering :(. Like listening to a Rudy Van Gelder remastered cd (not the original ones). The performance itself it excellent.

Its not the same music as the original. Don't be fooled.

Very noisy for a new record. Perhaps I had bad luck but be careful.

Excellent pressing, highly recommended, completely silent. Not the mention the wonderful music.

An Mp3 would be better than the reissue sound-quality wise.

Good sound, but from hi-rez digital file if you care about it not being pure analog. Very smooth and pleasant music, but not very engaging and can be a bit boring to some.

Wonderful. Don't hesitate. I had the original when it came out and this is just as good.

This label makes lps which sound like crap. I think its transferred from cds or worse and is likely counterfeit.

Poor sound, likely from cd. Cymbals too prominent as with compressed cds. Threw my copy to the garbage.

Wonderful, natural sound like in the old days. A little bit of noise though, again like in the old days. Might be fixed after a few plays (if its vinyl remnants from the pressing), but does not sound like an audiophile pressing (might be less than ... See full review

Absolutely correct, except my favorite is Valsinha :). very nice review.

I was someone afraid because of the unknown, European, public domain label. Happy I pulled the trigger. It sounds wonderful. The music is of course, well, one of the better albums ever recorded...
posted a review of Jean Michel Jarre* - Oxygene. over 3 years ago
This version has a dynamic range of 11 and sounds great. Most later remasters are compressed with a dynamic range of 9. the 2014 version is the worst with a dynamic range of 7.....

Does not sound as good as the Analogue Productions version (I have both). Guess its not exactly a surprise...its much cheaper though.

"Recorded live during the same sessions where their classic ‘Monster Movie’ LP came from, this is basically an alternate, rawer mix. A must for any Kraut rock collector!"

the sound is very, very good.

Definitely the one to get if you like a good dynamic range and not modern compressed garbage.
