what's up with "painter's link"?
is that a completely different voice?

nice clean pressing
i'd say it's missing instrument seperation, punch and some of the sizzle
of the original but for the money a great buy and a no-brainer...get it

nice re-issue
tight, crisp sound, find a clean copy and you're set
original canadian is better but this is fine if you don't want to spend the extra money

really great sounding, some of the best deep bass i've heard on my system.
the new remixes by Nick are also quite good especially bringing out the guitar but
this pressing still seem to have more weight and bottom end.

just in case this is not already universally known but the recording

maybe we expect so little from new vinyl releases after the hundreds and thousands of
wastes of plastic that flood the shelves of record stores these days but this lp is just O.K.
I bought it completely based on the reviews here because i've been ... See full review

great pressing of this greatest of albums.
despite "phasegate" the bottom end is very musical and tight even if it isn't wall shaking.
the new reissues sound better overall but the original pressings have their own character and i still go back to ... See full review

one of the few test records with a good antiskating test.
try it at 33rpm for minute adjustments.

posted a review of Cliff Martinez - Drive (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack). about 1 year ago
the sound on this is nothing short of astounding.
the vinyl is close to dead quiet and the music really explodes.
i have it so loud i expect to break up eventually but it doesn't. good work on this pressing.

there is a lot of info on this set.
unlike most other reissues you can find out about the manufacturing chain.
the mono set is all analog from the original UK masterror tapes to the vinyl.

i see you're a Beatles fan but i have to disagree with the quality of this release.
compilations are very difficult to put together because sourcing the material can be
complicated especially in the case of the beatles where the masters for the ... See full review

Pretty decent album, sounds a bit like Saga and Styx. Heavy and proggy, good stuff.
Blue vinyl sounds very good, nice pressing.

big fan of hers also. so much good music from a solo artist.
i'd put her catalogue up against just about anybody and Mylene would come out on top.
one big difference though is her live work is in many ways better than her albums, a sign of a true great ... See full review

excellent pressings, very clean, flat and dead quiet vinyl, great to hear so much hidden detail that is just not present on
most older releases. Peter's voice is very smooth and maybe a bit more forward than it use to be as is Phil's hi-hat.

can't remaster multitrack tapes they have to be remixed you would never get the same

really great job on this seminal album especially on the quiet half of side 2.

i usually don't collect Columbia House records due to
the poor sound quality i had on some of them.
this Rush release is an exception.
the vinyl is very quiet and the pressing sounds great especially with the drums.
highly recommended.
