Quite interesting... Having taken all the opinions under considerations, I still decided to include it in my collection. No regrets.
It looks great, sounds great, no problems.
As far as I am concerned this issue is well worth the money.

A masterpiece album with unique music played with unique skills of Mr Mark Knopfler.
Best tracks Ride Across the River and Brothers in Arms. Never heard ones like these before or after.
And I couldn't care less how it's selling. I'm more than happy that ... See full review

I agree there's something wrong with LP1 side2, especially "Sorrow" but not sure what it is. Some kind of slight distortion in higher tones. However it is not audible throughout the whole side and it's not that awful after all. Heard worse. Other than ... See full review

Mine plays well. Good, quiet pressing, no distortion or other problems with sound. Perhaps I was lucky this time...

Mine isn't warped and plays ok. The LPs are dirty and need cleaning right after purchase. The sleeve and innersleeves are of poor quality and it should have been put in a gatefold. All in all not a perfect edition but not horrible either. Great music :)

There is one information the description is missing: this issue is unlistenable. Only a collectors item.

That's odd... I also bought two LPs (one as a git for someone) and both are ok. Playing full and clean sound, no signs of warped vinyls or anything.
About the art - I don't have the original issue but judging by its looks, I'd say it's meant to be a ... See full review

Mine is slightly warped too but that doesn't affect the sound so I let it be.
Disk 1 had a grey stain on it though.
It was visible under a strong light and it also gave out a hissing sound when the stylus ran through it.
Looked like a pressing issue.

The producer did an excellent job! The soundstage, the positioning of the instruments... All perfectly arranged.
Also, the pressing's quality is high. There's close to no background noise.

Well, low budget it is.
The sleeve, the inner sleeve, the label - not so good.
At least the record isn't warped.
About the quality of pressing & sound.
In my opinion the problem is the original recording.
Sound recording and mastering level in Poland, in ... See full review

Just bought it, lower price (probably because of the 2017 release).
Earlier I've been told not to buy the contemporary DM reissues as they were supposed to sound flat and lack in details.
Well, that's not true, with this one at least.
Very nice, full ... See full review

A timeless classic, as far as I'm concerned.
It doesn't sound like it was mastered for the vinyl edition though.
Still, a release that sounds nice (even if CD-like) and looks ok on the shelf too.

Good pressing, enjoyable listening.
Some minor issues with mastering / mix - sometimes the sound appears to be lacking middle tones, whereas especially high tones are too much exposed.
The construction of the sleeve makes it very fragile - it's easy to ... See full review

Nice release and good mastering, The pressing itself is nothing short of terrible, though.
First copy I bought was covered with partially melted fragments of plastic fibre.
As a replacement I got a slightly better one but still badly warped and with a ... See full review

I bought this one several months ago and still, everytime I listen to it I'm amazed how clear and powerful is the sound of this pressing. Much more likeable than the CD version.
posted a comment on AFI - The Art Of Drowning. over 2 years ago
Mine comes with a lyrics insert. Runout numbers & symbol match this release.
Grey marble vinyl, a likeable mastering.
Fun to listen to after all those years :) It's a sign of good music, btw.

I got my copy today and it's almost flawless. The only thing is the vinyl is not entirely quiet and some background noise is audible. Other than that great listening and a great piece of music too.
posted a comment on Pink Floyd - The Division Bell. over 2 years ago
In my opinion it sounds absolutely fantastic! The newest reeditions are really top notch. I could compare it to the very nice 2nd press of The Wall from the 70's and this edition is superior to the classic in many ways. The pressing is unbelievably quiet ... See full review

Very nice edition, neat and clean pressing. Perfect kind of music to be played from a vinyl :)
posted a comment on Pearl Jam - Yield. over 2 years ago
This is how a remastering should be done. It sounds very natural and in an "analogue" way, too. The pressing is neat, very quiet and clean.
posted a comment on Massive Attack - Protection. over 2 years ago
A decent edition. Mine was quite dirty too but not a scratch on it. It sounds nice but not as good as the new Mezzanine pressing - probably mastering differences.
All in all I certainly don't regret buying it.
posted a comment on Dżem - Najemnik. over 2 years ago
For it being an old Polish pressing, it's a decently sounding LP. The vinyl itself seems quite thin and fragile though.
posted a comment on The Doors - L.A. Woman. over 2 years ago
For its age, an excellent sounding record! Full and rich soundstage and clarity.
If only the one I've got wasn't a bit damaged (there's a white piece pressed into the vinyl, probably during production)

Great live performance and a nice pressing, too. No background noise, rich sound.

So much better from the Polish pressing I've also got.
posted a comment on Dire Straits - Brothers In Arms. over 2 years ago
Not a perfect pressing but acceptable.
Money For Nothing is quite noisy during some passages but other than that my pressing is a high quality one.
Oh, and it tends to get scratched quite easily...
posted a comment on Massive Attack - Mezzanine. over 2 years ago
Really enjoyable listening. Much deeper and more spacious sound than the cd edition. Great pressing.
posted a comment on Depeche Mode - Spirit. over 2 years ago
I had to return it to the store two times because of a damaged vinyl.
Having that sorted out it's a high quality pressing even if the album itself is not the best in DM discography.
Make no mistake - it's not weak either ;)

So, it appears I'm the lucky one.
Got this edition - no marks on the LP, it's not warped or anything, sounds as it should for a '60s mono recording.
There is a barely heard surface noise. Much less than on GNR Appetite for Destruction reedition for ... See full review

The LP's are warped. It does affect the sound quality a little, especially in louder passages there are some distortions.
Shame. But otherwise a great record, it's just not ideal.
posted a comment on The Doors - The Doors. over 2 years ago
I've got this one too. The issue is with this pressing only. It's noisy and the mastering is quite poor. The originals sound better.
