Weight varies on them. 180g records are a marketing gimmick. Thickness doesn't equate to better sound. Unless your discs are paper thin there's going to be no difference. If your copies sound great you're not missing out!

Just because they're similar doesn't mean the LP was "cut from the CD." There's a slight difference in dynamics between the two but not much. The CD isn't a brickwalled garble of nonsense anyway, which was pretty common then. Your observation is... See full review

Thickness doesn't matter all that much in regards to sound quality. All these heavy weight discs out there are a marketing gimmick. Some of the worst sounding discs I've ever heard were 180g and it had nothing to do with weight; they were just poorly pressed. See full review

The 2021 deluxe edition is just a reissue/repress of the 2018 analogue release. If you're hearing anything different it's placebo or your copy from 2018 wasn't good, which wouldn't surprise me considering it's Optimal.

They always used Rainbo and pretty sure uncredited United. I wouldn't be surprised if they shifted most production to them after they acquired all of Rainbo's stampers and equipment.

The thing is, it's going to sell for what it's worth. If ppl are paying $200 for it they can list it for that much. If the new release sucks it might not affect value at all. Have to wait and see! I'd personally like a lil drop so I can snag one myself.

My Loveless also sounds great and it's the only great Optimal I've ever purchased. My equipment is fine. They're typically the kings of non-fill and other garbage. Prior to Loveless I chanced a Kate Bush reissue and it was virtually unlistenable.... See full review

You got that backwards; the closer you get to the center the worse inner groove distortion gets. The fact that there's a wider space means they took care to make sure there wouldn't be such a defect. It should have probably been cut across 2 discs... See full review

The deluxe is an all new assembly of the original album from its master tapes, an AAA chain cut. That's why it's so desirable. A quick search should have informed!

It doesn't; asking price is pure coincidence. If you look at selling history they're virtually identical across the board. When availability gets thin sellers mark-up price for competition and demand being where it is there you go.

That's not considered a mispress, it's a manufacturing variation. It happens sometimes and denotes nothing special or unique.

DMM simply stands for Direct Metal Mastering. Specialty did do DMM at the time and the lacquer was cut by Masterdisk.

Optimal has become Europe's cheap & quick turnaround go-to next to GZ. And that's not a good thing. The proof is in the pudding.

The new text in the runout is simply re-press designation. There's nothing different about the master.

Because it's an unofficial release. That's your answer. The copyright holders can and have levied complaints against Discogs for selling unauthorized editions. They've since restricted most of it aside from various grey area live bootlegs.

It's probably less the master and more of how it was cut to disc. I have not listened myself but what you're describing sounds like inner-groove distortion. The analogue mix was made by making all new tape transfers of the original tape stems, then... See full review

If the runout etchings are the same they're the same discs. No difference. As of now I'm pretty certain they are the same thing. Buy with confidence! (unless of course, anyone proves otherwise)
