I got a beautiful copy a few days ago myself. Truly stunning in every possible way.

Well, some of the tracks on here are just as catchy as anything on LD (also receiving a similar amount of radio airplay, at least around where I live), so that's what I meant^^ but, well - who knows? Maybe he DID travel through time, after all ;)

KILLER early CD pressing of this classic album! Very dynamic and lively sound.

Thanks! I didn't realize someone answered my query^^ sadly, in the meantime this has gotten extremely expensive... should have taken a plunge and order it upon release. Oh well... :)

Great soundtrack to a solid Tarantino flick. However, the CD is heavily compressed. Good on headphones, almost unlistenable on a good stereo. At 9.99 for the BluRay/Soundtrack combo, however, I won't complain. Plus, the music is really excellent -... See full review

Wanda, oh Wanda... you were one of the best bands to come out of Austria back then. Fall 2015 was a magical time for me and now I look back to it with a sense of melancholy and bittersweet feelings. This LP was the soundtrack for this short period of... See full review

Fantastic album by the 4 Tops, containing many smash hits and presented in a wonderful mono presentation that comes with much power and is very crankable! Great listen for all you Motown fans.

Absolutely fantastic pressing - silent, clear as a crystal and gorgeous music! A must for every collection, the nice gatefold sleeve and enclosed booklet with lots of info about the individual songs truly stand out here.

Grace fans need to have this album. It's clearly one of her absolute highlights, musically and production-wise. A shame Island doesn't seem too interested in releasing a nice deluxe package of this amazing album, making it neccessary to wade through... See full review

Glorious album presented in a glorious soundscape. Deep bass, fantastic stereo reproduction and crystal clear lyrics, topped off by sharp synths and drums. An amazing listen to one of the most important albums of the 80s. This first edition truly... See full review

Great historical relict - of course, in the age of YouTube and the availabikity of those videos on DVD as well (I think) it's basically useless to hunt this down but I got it free with my Laserdisc player and I really like watching it every now and then.

This is a fabulous effort by Falco and one that is undeservedly underrated by many. Songs like the opening 'Wiener Blut' and 'Satellite to Satellite', the two main singles released from the album, show Falco at his best, combining viennese slang with... See full review

I had long looked for this album on vinyl and this year I finally could get hold of a copy.

Counting the first two albums with Eric Burdon, this is War's fifth overall effort and it's clearly their most acclaimed, even securing a spot on Rolling... See full review

First of all, the quality of this recording is excellent - powerful singers, passionate conduction and an overall very sinister tone round out a wonderful performance. However, the quality of the pressing is rather mediocre - heavy surface noise (even... See full review

Crank this up and you get a PUNCH that's unheard of on any of the remasters - especially "Shock the Monkey" is sheer awesomeness on this LP! Very highly recommended!

A so-so effort by Huey. The highs are extremely good (Hip to be Square, Forest for the Trees, Jacob's Ladder!), but the rest sounds uninspired at times, especially when compared to the brilliant Sports. Sonic-wise, the digital procession hits hard on... See full review

You're so right! Finally listened to this LP today, halfway through "Deep Blue Day" I checked if my cartridge was okay because the noises were really ugly. It's a shame that this happens frequently, just like with the "Disintegration" reissue from 2010.

This pressing manages to persuade with an amazing sound quality - must be the way the album was recorded. It truly comes to life on vinyl! As you all will know, this is a very controversial album among Bowie fans, but IF you're interested in listening... See full review

The sonics on this disc are amazing - though I'm sure that this is the case with every release of this album. The music, on the other hand, is not my cup of tea - I like musical minimalism, but it doesn't fit Prince (or Prince doesn't fit it, who... See full review

Basically an MP3 of this album stretched onto an LP. A tad muddy and undefined sound (same as the enclosed download version) - nice to have as a piece of decoration, but I'll try to find a clean original and you should do the same.

posted a comment on Heaven 17 - Penthouse And Pavement. over 3 years ago
Excellent sounding early CD Version of this album (I even think this is a pre-emphasized edition, at least according to the DR database). Much clearer and more defined than the remaster, so try to find this disc if you want this album on CD!
posted a review of Pink Floyd - The Wall. over 3 years ago
This is a nice CD Edition, though the brickwall shines through during the loud parts (especially the end of Disc 1 can hurt a bit with headphones!), sadly no jewel case, but a double slipcase instead where light scratches are next to impossible to avoid.

Once more, shout out to the original CD. I have to do these things because the reviewed discs sound so amazing - seriously, you can't have a better demonstration disc for your system at this price (except maybe an early "Communique").
