BEST ALBUM by the Specials in my opinion - much better than the first one which was fun and mildly political but mostly dance oriented. This one is much darker and moodier, more intelligent and more adventurously musical in my opinion.

can anyone comment on the quality of the recording? I am interested but don't want to buy a bum recording

i have an 'original' US dynaflex and it's a bit of a tossup for me ... i think there's a bit more palpability to that one somehow. But the 40th anniv. pressing isn't as good (or better) as i'd hoped compared to that one. Now I want to hear the 6E/4E UK ... See full review

love this album but bought an american reissue - big mistake - fidelity is just NOT there - so important with einsturzende neubauten ... I recommend original german releases

not steve severin ... thats john mcgeoch you are thinking of. he also played for magazine and much later pil. he left the banshees due to a nervous breakdown .... a sad tale but brilliantly gifted musician

This pressing (the japanese odeon) is comparable to the first UK pressing. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

not a great pressing at all - signal level is VERY LOW. cool to look at but not to listen to (though i guess the original recording isnt' so great anyway)

who cares about the jacket - what is the pressing like?

better than the original? hard to believe since the master mix tapes usually are degraded even a week after cutting

second disc is disappointing in it's dynamics. perhaps it's the recording. disc one is better. it may well be that this is an example of how digital stuff doesn't translate so well to vinyl... will update this if I change my mind. But this is my initial ... See full review

good pressing but have not compared to the euro versions. Based on past experience it's comparable... sometimes the US does well...

i found disc two to to be of poorer quality - less dynamic than disc one... perhaps an example of an act that doesn't suit vinyl? I'll check in later if I change my mind on this...

disappointing reissue - sounds SUSPICOUSLY like the CD release and not the original album in my opinion. I suspect it was cut from the digital files of the CD release...
