Judging by the comments I've got lucky. My copy sounds amazing; minimal noise, a stunning soundstage and great dynamics.

I seem to have gotten (mostly) lucky with the quality of my pressing, although it did need a clean when I received it. The sound quality is good across most of the tracks; it's only at the end of Therapy on side 2, that there are some distinct clicks... See full review

The packaging and the white vinyl look great, the mastering is good although a little too much space for my preference. It's way better than the Plain pressing and sounds almost as good as the original. My issues are the same as a few others have... See full review

My copy sounds great, as do the other 2017 reissues I have. I'm playing them on a Rega RP6, through a Rega Elex-R Amp and Kef LS50's and they all sound really good. With most 90's recordings they were mastered for CD, so when they come to remaster... See full review

This is an official release - it may not be artist approved, but that's not the same thing. It's disappointing that they weren't informed or had any input, but this is the music industry, it's a business like any other. And if artists not approving... See full review

It's not trolling to get the 'unofficial' tag removed. This is an official release, it may not be approved by the artists, that's not great, but from a legal, contractual and 'official' view. In terms of MoV's output, the vast majority is done with... See full review

Agreed - just finishing giving it a complete playthrough and it sounds great and they've done another fine job on the packaging. Excellent soundstage separation and depth.

It's not a bootleg, this is an official release in terms of having cleared all of the legal hurdles required. I'm sorry that this clashes with the desires of the artists but that doesn't make it a bootleg. As for this being a CD transfer, that's... See full review

This is an official reissue. It's not a bootleg, Sony handed the recordings over to MoV to enable them to press it, and they did a very fine job of it too. The band may not have authorised/approved the release, but that's very different from saying... See full review

According to the response mrbluesurf received from MoV regarding this release "MOV doesn’t cut from CD’s. - For this title we have used high res audio files (96 KHZ / 24 BIT) of the original master." so they would probably have also been aware of who... See full review

My assumption is that this is likely to be the 2005 remaster. Although Jonz isn't mentioned on the vinyl release (there's not much of any info there) he is listed in the 2005 CD remaster, which was remastered at Loud Mastering - so having 'JONZ LOUD'... See full review

I don't think they've redone the fades; Side A 4:02 fades into 14:31 in the same way as the original CD and vinyl and this is replicated in all cases with the obvious exception of 0:54, which as it has been moved does not fade into 4:14 in the same... See full review

not sure if your review is for this version. My copy sounds excellent. The price is probably due to this being a limited edition coloured vinyl release.

After missing out on the Vinyl Me Please repress last year I was tempted to buy one of the recent bootleg pressings; now really pleased I held off as this sounds really good. Lovely and quiet, with real clarity, great separation and clear, deep bass.

Overall, the differences between this and the original feel quite subtle through most of the record, which makes sense; this is a classic for a reason. But where they do come through, they really do feel like enhancements and not just tweaks for the... See full review
