I thought that as it's a half speed remaster, care would have been taken on the manufacture. When I first removed it from its sleeve I noticed a triangular smudge or finger mark. This was audible on playback in the quiet section and between tracks.
Also there is noise in the silent grooves between tracks as well as the run in and out grooves. Turn up the volume during the runout groove, and sounds like you're at the beach.
This is a constant complaint about vinyl album manufacture. It should be perfect but it's not.
This type of quality issue only ruins the whole point of vinyl records. My old original copy has accumulated clicks and pops but on first play was magic, clean, pristine audio. This had several pops and no way could I call it pristine.
The best thing about it was that it's cheap for a half speed remaster, now you know why.
So at least there's a hi-res download card that is out of date and you have to convert it by sending pictures of it and the LP.
In the end , vinyl manufacture is patchy and humans have to put them into bags which is where most seem to pick up damage. (Suggestion: Use nitrile gloves and keep your coffee away from the vinyl).

I've read other peoples reviews where they have had problems with their copies. Not so in my case. The pressing, sound quality and sleeve were immaculate. It's the best sounding version of this album yet and if this is one of your favourites then I'm sure that you will be glad that you brought it. As for the album, it's Peter Gabriels finest and it is a stunner.

Great Vinyl Pressing (single vinyl version)2019年5月6日に英国でレビュー済み
Fully deserving five stars. Some of his best work on an absolutely silent pressing with huge dynamic range. More depth and detail than I've ever heard on any previous vinyl or cd issues of this album. A revelation in the true sense of the word. The songs are in the order originally intended for the first time and the absolutely faithful packaging only enhances the experience.
Outstanding Vinyl. I can hear detail as I never heard before.2016年10月17日に英国でレビュー済み
Quality! This is better than any CD and shows what vinyl is capable of given a decent set up. Can't fault this release I will cherish this copy forever. PG never throws out rubbish music, every song a classic and sung with passion. Great pressing half speed master on 45 rpm for better sound and dynamic range which is not a con just pure quality. Don't Give Up track with Kate Bush shows this album to be a must.thanks PG!

No amount of hyperbole could adequately describe the sound quality of this remastered vynil pressing of PG's masterpiece. If you haven't already revived your vynil it's worth doing so for this one album alone. Spine tingling and simply stunning audiophile quality.

A long time favourite of mine & I decided to get a new copy. When I discovered that this version was described as" The album has been Half-Speed Remastered and cut to lacquers at 45RPM, across 2x heavyweight LPs, to deliver maximum dynamic range in the sound" I could not not resist getting it.
