5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Reissue Indeed, Dec 7 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I am very happy to have purchased this reissue. The 180g vinyl on this is so quiet it is a pleasure to listen to again. There was nothing really different form the original other than the vinyl on the original being really noisy. The mastering is very good and the depth is impressive. If I had anything to be critical about is the cymbals and upper end in general could have been a little more forward in the presentation but only a little bit. A great listening experience.

4.0 out of 5 stars Music On Vinyl An Improvement, Nov. 23 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I was worried about this purchase a little because the Cd and original Vinyl copy were so bright I couldn't even listen in the same room without turning down the treble. On the first song Don't Look Back the tambourine was so in your face on the original but the Music On Vinyl copy is way more subtle and pleasing. It's still a little cool but sounds like it should and very dynamic. The Vinyl itself is flawless not a peep. If you like this album get yourself a new one.

Wow I didn't see this coming. What a great album. The sound is awsome. Rich, full and Dynamic.It also sounds like a Black Sabbath Record not and Ozzy Osbourne Record. The Vinyl is quiet, this is the way to do it. Thanks guys.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Much Bottom End., Nov. 23 2013
This review is from: Eye In The Sky (Vinyl) (LP Record)
I don't know what to say about Alan Parson's. For a record engineer all his recordings sound very similar. They seem to be recorded very well in good studios but the thing that gets me is none of them seem to have any lower end extension. Now whether that is a personel preference I don't know but it turns me off. It's not that they sound cold but the high end always outshines the lower end. I have an affection for rich bass sound and it doesn't matter which edition you buy you won't get that sound from Alan Parson's.

4.0 out of 5 stars Remastered Better Than Original, Nov. 23 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The original record of this album sounded compressed and a little lifeless so I spent some money on Speakers Corner edition of this record. It was obvious to me that the the original paled in comparison. Much more dynamics and still something was lacking. It had a very detailed high end and more punch but the original recording was alas inconsistent. I also purchased the 2014 remaster of this album and this copy was also better than the original but different from the speakers corner version being slightly darker with less detail in the upper range while still delivering in the dynamics. Although darker I think I like this 2014 release better only because I hate bright recordings. still this is not a great recording but better than it used to be. The vinyl by the way on the new 2014 release is quite good not much surface noise to complain about.

4.0 out of 5 stars The New Sound ?, Nov. 16 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It's funny how most music put out in the early 2000's had such a bright compressed sound and now we are in the 2010's and alot of recordings are more dynamic but now have switched to Darker sound which this is one. The symbols are a little too far in the background and sound muted instead of crisp. The rest of the sound is pretty good. The Vinyl is not bad but crackles and pops are present.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb !, Nov. 16 2013

This recording was very engaging. The sound I think is absolutely flawless. Mobile Fidelity has given it a little more on the bottom end which I thought was missing on the original release which was also very good. Quiet vinyl. A perfect Listen.

Mobile Fidelity version is quite good. I think the only problem I had was probably a studio set up thing. The Drums didn't quite have the impact I was hoping for but shouldn't stop you from checking this out everything else is very good. Quiet vinyl and warm full sound.

This review is from: Glass Houses (Vinyl) (LP Record)
This remaster of Glass Houses is very good. My original copy of this was good but lacked a little on the bottom end making the cymbals sound overpowering. Mobile fidelity solved this problem and the result is a siightly more rounded sound. Vinyl is nice and quiet. Good Job.
