My copy sounds great. Quiet pressing, clearer sound than original CD.
Ueledavi
I have to agree with the other posters who find this pressing to be veiled. My copy is clean, flat and with no imperfections. However, the sound has an emphasis in the low-mids. The guitars and drums don't sound as good as they could. The high frequencies are mostly not present. I'm using a VPI/Soundsmith setup that's dialed in. I recall the CD sounding better.
Kirizan
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AuKpQLKUSqE this is great great sound awesome. U2 Popmart Tour :))))
Marad
i love the remastering . much more balanced frequency range and a wider stereo panorama which makes it more open. compared to the original it's not as muddy as described here by others. only the pressing is not as good as the other recent U2 reissues. it's not bad either but somehow noisy in quiet parts and sometimes crackling. so mastering top, pressing ok.
Gosar
I'm fine with this pressing. Yes, Discothèque sounds muddy (which I guess is intended to sound like that) and yes, the album is bass heavy (reduce the bass on your amp as I did and be happy). Crackles during the quiet parts are existing but still acceptable (except for IYWTVD, I agree). Discs are flat and centered, packaging is of very high quality. Finally, still sounds like a no-brainer to me. If you like the album, go and get this version before it's gone.
Beardana
No audio problems with my copies but there was one small visual scratch on side B (but didn't hear any defect). Sounds great. I can understand why some call the mix muddy, the low-end is mixed very rumbly and I think unless you have speakers/headphones that can deal with that, it might not sound very good. I'm happy with it. Might have to pick up Zooropa...
Xinetan
I’ve had both copies OG and reissue. It’s true, the bass is heavier on the reissue...but that fixed my main complaint about the Og. To me, the reissue is a clearer press and far superior than the OG...artwork is pretty close to the original...with some slight color hue and scale differences (only noticeable if you have the records side by side). Sounds like there are some bad reissue copies...but honestly from what Im reading and heard...you’re not gonna get anything less than the OG sound with the reissue.
Whiteseeker
The sound is disappointing on my copy; the mastering is very inconsistent from track to track....Discotheque sounds really veiled and muddy. What happened to all of the high frequencies on that track and others on Side A? It's very noticeable to my ears. What did they use as source material?
Gholbimand
Not getting any pops on mine. Pops? Is this an episode of great bits?Anyway the record is pressed well. Mine came from Amazon US. I actually think the sound dynamic is pretty good and there's not any noticeable sibilance, though I don't have the OG to compare it with. As I said, no pops and clicks on my table. Discotheque is a bit bass-heavy, as is the whole record, but I think it suits. Now bring on Zooropa and Achtung Baby please.
sobolica
I think some people here are having issues with their pressings. My pressing is fantastic thus letting the mastering shine. If you have a copy that has pops and clicks-- return it. no reason to spend a lot of money on a crappy pressing.
Bloodhammer
I own both the original LP and the repress. It's not horrible, but not perfect. The sound overall is good, but this is a bit noisy during the quieter passages. My copy has an offensive crackle throughout the quiet intro of "If You Wear That Velvet Dress" which is its greatest flaw. The artwork is true to the original, in fact I'd say it's a bit richer in hue. I noticed there's more space between grooves on the original, so the repress keeps better resolution with the grooves closer to the edge of the record - it's a trade off. I think it's worth the price, but if you can find a decent copy of the original for 50 USD I'd opt for that. I am glad I have both versions.
Delaath
This is a very low quality reissue. Try to avoid!
Invissibale
It would be helpful if you gave specifics and/or comparisons.
Vikus
can anyone say something about the remastering compared to the original vinyl release? the new vinyl master of ATYCLB is just fantastic compared to the original vinyl. i have hoped for a more open and brilliant sound for the pop reissue?!
Xor
As others have said imho this a superior cut to the original.
Xmatarryto
While this record is pressing is exceptional, my only complaint it clicks on the parts of “Discotheque” when the music scales back and Bono croons. Anyone else having that problem? Besides that, it is flawless!
blodrayne
I am very pleased with this pressing , bar a few pops and crackles at the beginning of each side its a great sounding record. The Bass is phenomenal and thats the way it was intended, I am spotting sounds that I had never ever experienced on my old cd copy. I love this album, and its never sounded better in my opinion.
Fordrelis
This thing sounds fantastic. Felt like I was listening to Pop for the first time again.
Oparae
Could not be happier with the reissue, flat, quiet and a fine remaster. It is not muddy on my system, its very bass heavy and thats in the original mix and since this a remastered and not a remixed version there is nothing to complain about. A wonderful reissue!
Kezan
Totally agree with you both. Had to trade my first copy in because there was some non-fixable pops, but my second copy is phenomenal. The remastering is not overdone, the sound is pretty authentic to how I recall it sounding in 97, and the pressings are great!
Malaunitly
I've just had mine on first play and have to agree with you, the issue is fine, clean, bass heavy as you say but it's intended to be. I'm very happy with it.
Silly Dog
Less than stellar sound on this repress. Discotheque for example sounds as muddy as it did on the cd. I wonder if they remastered it at all, despite they claim to have done so. For completists.
Mr.Twister
Not muddy on my system-- just bass heavy-- and some systems can have trouble with that. Overall this is the best I've ever heard this album-- I have the original CD-- this blows that away-- especially in the bass department!
Kagalkree
Just listening now. Thought it was my copy, very muddy. All that you can’t leave behind reissue sounds great though
