I own many copies of BOTW. My go to will always be my NM two eye Columbia. Pure analog bliss that I bought for $5, 25 years ago now.

I was able to get this for free from a friend in a trade. It's a very quiet pressing, no surface noise at all. Sound ... See full review

Amen to that. I took it back today for a full refund. That's me done in the future.

Just stuck mine on the TT and it's noisy from the run in. FFS. £26 for this crap, came in a crappy white generic sleeve too, not even a poly lined sleeve. So sick of this cost cutting crap. EDIT: Just held it to the light and it's full of light ... See full review

Mine isn’t noisy at all, maybe you got one that wasn’t looked after. Sounds great for a bootleg.

This sounds stunning, Highly recommended. Played on a Technics 1210mkII with a VM540ML cartridge.

Get the USA Wally Capitol cut. Kills the original UK and this remaster. I have listened to and owned both.

It's a stunner for sure. One of the best sounding records I own. Smashes the Cd out of the water.

Stunning sounding Pressing. Excellent mastering from Ryan Smith. If you think this sounds bad quality you need to upgrade your rig.

Nice, just picked this epic comp up at a charity shop recently.
posted a comment on Soundgarden - Badmotorfinger. 8 months ago
Ignore the negative reviews. Yes it is cut quiet because it's a long album but it opens up if you crank it up past your normal level. Great Pressing.

Superb quality release. HUGE improvement in sound over my 1981 release, will now be putting it up for sale. Don't hesitate in buying this. Mine was flat and dead silent no surface noise issues. The people here moaning are the ones who own the 1981 ... See full review

WOW! is all I can say. Ron McMaster knocked it out of the park with this remaster. I have owned several versions through the years and this is hands down the most dynamic sounding version.

Obviously it's your setup, probably your cartridge. I own this and have no sibilance using a VM540ML. Stunning Pressing.

Amen MCID. GREAT release and to hear Dave Abbruzzese is such a breath of fresh air. Should never have sacked him. Never sounded good since.

I just picked up a pitman USA Pressing that is superb also, no sibilance whatsoever. Must be just this pressing. I have owned 4 Utopia pressings all cut too loud.

Hey

I have 62/65 of this series and the sound is stunning. I have just ordered 66/69 as I assume the sound will just be as good.

cheers

Interesting, the original European 1991 Pressing sounds stunning. You should get it.
posted a comment on Paul McCartney - Pipes Of Peace. about 1 year ago
The master was cut too loud and original vinyl pressings suffer from sibilance in places. If you want a great sounding version of the album the vinyl remaster is the way to go, sounds superb.

The original 1993 US Vinyl Pressing is stunning. Go get it.

Agree. Thought there was something wrong with me stereo when I first spun it on my table. Criss's album sounds gorgeous, great album too.

Come on, they haven't made a great album since Vitalogy. All went downhill after they sacked their best drummer Dave Abbruzzese.

I have a UK Copy and when held up to the light it's see thru ruby red vinyl, looks black when held away from the light. Anyone help? I have been through all the UK pressings here and I can't see it listed.

Anyone know if this set uses the same remastering from analogue tapes as The Abba Vinyl Collection??https://www.discogs.com/ABBA-The-Vinyl-Collection/release/2600928

No, it's down to the stylus, if you have a cheap stylus you will get sibilance. My sounds fantastic too. I am using AT VM540ML

It's cut quieter than normal, but you just have to crank it and it opens up beautifully. Sounds stunning.

Forget the negative review, I had an original pressing of this and although it was good, it was not great, this 2016 remaster is stunning, punchy and dynamic.

Agreed, I bought this cheap and I know why it was cheap. Terrible noisy pressing, even though the vinyl looks mint.

Stunning pressing. Sound is phenomenal per the original pressing which I sold in 1997.

they should be perfect for the price. warps & pops and clicks should not be there. Quality control is pathetic. People accepting defects on new vinyl only exasperate the problem. Pressing plants need to be improved.

Yep, mine is the same. It's annoying isn't it? I think it was due to them being stacked on stacking record players so they could play in order.

It's nowhere near as good as the original for sure. But it's not as bad as you are making out.

I think you are being quite harsh, It by no means a masterpiece but it's a Solid LP. I like it a lot.
