I agree completely with most of the other reviews. There is no bass or bottom end whatsoever - is this a standard aspect of 1/2 speed mastering? The songs sound weak on this release...the life and joy that I normally get when listening to Marley... See full review

Has anybody else noticed some slight distortion during "Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own" (during the high note as Bono sings "can you hear me siiiinnnggg") and also during the end of "Yahweh"? I am hopeful it's not my stylus; I have an... See full review

Just picked this up from a local record store after a digital newsletter stated it was in stock. Great repress of the 2011 release. If you see this in a record store, get it right then and there. When I went to my local shop there were 3 in stock... See full review

The sound of this reissue is actually pretty amazing, to my ears. Before play I gave it a quick clean on my Record Doctor VI (as I do with all new vinyl) and it really brings out the dynamics of this pressing...probably the best sounding master of... See full review

The mastering of this pressing is excellent. However, I've been through three copies of this and all have non-fill issues, particularly on Side 1....a consistent "wooshing" sound. Has anybody else had this issue?

Does anybody else receive an incredibly noisy pressing??? Both the EP and main album are just full of noise!! Is it just mine?

This is a stunning album. However, I'm wondering if anybody else has had issues with surface noise...especially on the EP. The dynamics of the record are wonderful and the music is superbly recorded. Vocals sound amazing. I've been through a few... See full review

As has been noted before, the current pressing of this reissue (with a "Made in Germany" sticker on the back) has distorted vocals on the track "Please Please Me." At first I thought something was wrong with my system; however, all is good...simply a... See full review

Yes - I agree. There is heavy distortion on this track (and this track alone on the pressing). I, too, thought something was wrong with my system. I use the Audio Technica VM95ML, which is perfect at tracking inner grooves to avoid... See full review

Ya...crackling is all over the place on Side 1...especially on "Dreams"

I've been through two copies...both had issues that could not be fixed with deep cleaning; unfortunate due to the fact that it looks stunning. The mastering is really good, but there is background hiss and that annoying "dragging" sound throughout a... See full review

Does anybody else have a copy with annoying non-fill at the very end of "The Troubles" as it is fading? Try as I might I just can't seem to find a clean and quiet copy of this album on vinyl...

Unfortunately this pressing uses the horrible mix that was used for the recent EU pressing. Muddy and muted. Looks cool, though. But from a sonic perspective you are far better off trying to get the Pressed At Pallas American pressing that came out... See full review

Does anybody know if the LP that comes in the deluxe version was ever given an individual release on 180g black vinyl? I know that there is a white vinyl release (which I have, and it sounds good), but I'm wondering if there is a vinyl-only release... See full review

This is a brilliant album on vinyl. It sounds amazing. No remastering needed for the vinyl. Incredible work, both the music and pressing.

Does anybody else find this pressing to be completely lacking in any sense of energy? It just seems so lifeless...
Perhaps there is a more energetic 2018 pressing of the remix?

Does anybody know if this pressing uses the same mix as the single-vinyl version that was released in 2009 and again with the 2013 deluxe edition? I've always felt that that version is muted and dull...is this any different? Thanks.

Does anybody know if the blue pressing resolved some of the "pop and click" issues with "The First Time" on Side 3? I only have the black remaster release and, despite the fact that the remastering is perfect and, overall, the pressing is silent,... See full review

Yes - I've noticed the same thing. The sound of the track is phenomenal (the remastering), but several pops and clicks...even after cleaning. It's still listenable, but is certainly noticeable. Does anybody know if the blue 180g pressing resolved... See full review

This is an absolutely AMAZING pressing of this album. As a Canadian, I'm not used to saying that a pressing from my country is the "best" out there...but this pressing may just be the best pressing of this album. I picked it up in semi-good... See full review

So, I am on about my third copy of this pressing. I really like the sound of the album (it has been mastered quite well), but this particular pressing is awful! Again, I'm on my third try. Surface noise is everywhere...there is no space between... See full review
