3.0 out of 5 stars 2014 Polydor (535 110-6) Polar Music 2lp 180g Heavy Vinyl, Sept. 8 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It's a great collection of songs. The recordings themselves however like all the Abba releases I have heard are not audiophile masterpieces. Upper end detail and low end extension are not included on a lot of the tracks. The sound is a little bit small for my taste. The vinyl itself is good quality not alot of surface noise.

Good Record, Good quality Vinyl. Not quite the usual Pink Floyd quality in sound. Just a tiny bit on the bright side and dynamics are fine but not mind blowing.

2.0 out of 5 stars 2014 Casablanca (B0019817-01) Universal Music 2lp 180g Heavy Vinyl, May 30 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I'll never forget being in the basement of a friend playing pool and listening to this album time and again great memories. Having said that now being an audiophile and appreciating good sound this album doesn't sound good. I always enjoy this album as long as I'm not looking for great sound. The vinyl on this new offering is the best thing about this release because my old one had nothing but crackles and pops. The recording of this was bad but the concerts were great. As has been mentioned in other reviews this is not the millenium concert album, it is the Alive! album reissued from the 70's. Amazon has it labelled wrong.

This review is from: Kiss [180g Vinyl LP] (LP Record)
This release seems to be a little in and out. Some of the songs sound better than others. Lacks a little detail on the upper end on some songs and the bottom end also not as deep on some tracks. Once again the Vinyl itself on this reissue is great very quiet.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I never did own this on vinyl till now so I have nothing to compare it to. I think this is the best sounding album from the first three Kiss issued. The only issue is the lack of bottom end on some of the tracks, other than that the presentation is very good. The vinyl itself is once again very good no surface noise to speak of.

5.0 out of 5 stars 2013 Back On Black Rock Classics (RCV097LP) Plastic Head 180g Heavy Vinyl, April 18 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Razamanaz (Vinyl) (LP Record)
This vinyl reissue is excellent, the original I had was in and out with regards to depth and dynamics. The reissue is good all the way through. Some upper end detail is a little lacking but great depth and dynamics. The vinyl itself is not bad but certainly not dead silent. I had to return one copy because of a long consistant pop going through 4 songs, but the second one was ok. If you like this album and want an improved soundstage compared to the old copy get it.

2.0 out of 5 stars 2014 Music On Vinyl (MOVLP999) Universal Music 180g Heavy Vinyl, March 22 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Celebrity Skin (Vinyl) (LP Record)
I was hoping for an improvement in dynamics or bass depth with the Vinyl version of this fine album by Hole. Unfortunately I got neither. You can save your money and listen to your Cd because there is actually a little more depth on the CD making the Cd a little warmer sounding. The Vinyl quality itself very good no surface noise to speak of.

3.0 out of 5 stars 2011 Back On Black Rock Classics (RCV048LP) Chrysalis Music 180g Heavy Vinyl, March 1 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Obession (Vinyl) (LP Record)
This reissue of Obsession not Obession as Amazon has the vinyl copy named, is better sounding than the CD I have with a bit more depth but still needs much more. It is actually very similar to the original record and is not very impressive sounding. I have to assume the Master Tapes were not that good to begin with. The dynamics are only average and lacks bass. The vinyl itself is very good no surface noise to speak of.

This review is from: Slang (Vinyl) (LP Record)
This album to me is all over the place soundwise. Some songs have depth others don't. Some songs have upper end detail others don't. Some songs are dynamic some are not. The vinyl seems just a little more dynamic than the CD, but not much. It's not a satisfying listen for the most part. The vinyl itself is very good not much surface noise.

3.0 out of 5 stars 2013 WEA (1-411146) Warner Music 180g Heavy Vinyl, Feb. 15 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The music is good but the Vinyl sucks. The CD actually sounds better than the Vinyl. The Vinyl edition mastering has less upper end detail and less lower end depth. The Vinyl itself is crap, ticks and pops everywhere. The good thing is if you buy the vinyl you can throw it out and keep the Cd. Not to mention that they left three good songs off the LP having only 11 tracks instead of the 14 on the Cd.
