Fot those who has put this release among the want-list, consider that a picture disc has much more ground-noise than a regular black vinyl 12". I've played both and no doubt, the black promo has a decent, good quality, the 2 pictures we got in these ... See full review

Damn... it's all more complicated than i thought.
The 4MWB LPs i bought in the past (ex. "LC" by Durutti Column) plays very good, instead, the LPs rel. on UM /Back to Black Series sounded too bad, just in the way you described the 4MWB (ex. The Cure ... See full review

Have you compared it with any past pressing? Until now all the 4MWB LPs were great, i'm amazed reading your comment and in doubt if to take or not this reissue.
I don't know how was the original mastering, maybe it was flat, "distant", rough and so ... See full review

All the 5 copies we've played (reviewed among "Album of the year 2016" www.martinrecs.com) have disturbing background crackles. It seems they have NOT checked the mother copy before pressing the vinyl LPs.

No wonder about, Brilliant Classics is a low-quality label, they made NO remastering from digital to analog (or maybe they used a cheap converter). Probably a real analog recording does not exsist of this album, so they took a CD and registred a vinyl ... See full review

Do you mean the quality of pressing?
I got the US version, it plays clearly without ground-noise and i can only suggest to AVOID - generally - the colored LPs if you like a better sound.

They declared that but they'll think again about such a decision... Vinyl is selling more & more, maybe they won't consider the CD. A virtual/web-only trk. is stg. you have in the pc and with 1 click it diappears, a record is forever.

No brilliant ideas or melodies here, the magician of "A strange kind of love" or "Jemal" is so far away. Its' a pity that a voice so unique has been wasted for such psuedo-bad'90s-rock tracks like you find on this new record, full of clumsy synth & ... See full review

Nearly all songs sounded too much similar to some classic tunes.

This is a bad recording.
I compared this release with 3 other analog copies and it's clear that at universal they did not worked in the remastering but simply used as source a CD copy.
