My copy did not sound amazing.Hoping for a miracle had weaving grooves that were audible. For most songs on this album it sounded like somebody threw a towel over the speaker. Very flat and no "punch" to any of the songs like previous Pet Shop Boys vinyl.

Such a strong collection of tunes with some terrific hooks for the most part - the Pet's strongest album since 1990's 'Behaviour'

Very good mastering. The Record sounds amazing. For me much better than the CD.
I think, one of the best Pet Shop Boys albums. Every track is great, "Wedding in Berlin" ;-) ,too.

My pressing is flawless and dynamic. Very well mastered sounding record.

Wedding In Berlin is abysmal. Even worse than Winner. Everything else? Pretty darn great.

Slight warp to the copy I got, but sounds clean. Not enough to warrant an exchange through amazon. Quiet in between tracks as it should be. Not sure about the dynamics, though. To me, it sounds just a tad flat. Has punch, but not much sparkle. Still, a nice new set of tracks with a retro vibe to them. Pet Shop Boys rarely disappoint!

Beautiful depth of sound and quiet vinyl. Don't hesitate.. Great job Metropolis Mastering and Tim Young. A real success !
