Wish I could praise the quality of the pressing but it was a disappointing aural experience when spinning this album. I’m a die hard fan so I forked enough for 3 pressings of this album, 1 black, and 2 purple.. none of them sound excellent and I found only the black comes through as passable(something is like muted, like it’s all one flat level with no dynamics at all). The packaging is worth the experience alone, and I give all those involved high praise for creating such a fantastic package. I am happy with this, I’m just a little sad that the pressing wasn’t better quality.

I echo the other comments here about the sonic quality of this release (and the packaging!). It took me a while to remove the OBI and it now wraps around the sleeve in a vertical orientation which keeps it safe and allows you to remove the records unhindered. Like others have said, I'll probably store them outside of the sleeve regardless. The rainbow labels are a really nice touch to tie in with the visuals of the fancy dress shop and other recurring images. Really happy to have this as a massive Kubrick fan. What a Swansong of a film. I love all of them but EWS could well be my favourite.

Might be the greatest thing I own. More words. Even more words.

Got to say that this sounds fantastic. Probably helps that I'm playing it using a valve pre-amplifier, but I'm really impressed, particularly with the orchestrated tracks. An absolute joy to listen to. I feared the worst when I saw the (admittedly very beautiful) cloudy purple effect plastic. Like other commenters I'm not overly keen on the delicate packaging. I'll be keeping the records themselves outside the sleeve as I'll be playing them often. Which kind of defeats the object of a sleeve really doesn't it? Having said that I'm not arsed given how good it sounds. Great job on a classic soundtrack. Whoever's responsible for manufacturing this has improved my life considerably.

Fine with the issue considering I got it for a good deal, but I would've been satisfied with the cover art from the original CD release (which is a brilliant cover). This is missing Kubrick's signature flare especially without that giant Futura Extra Bold. And the labels here seem to be chasing an art deco revival aesthetic? Odd. I'd pass on this unless you like limited variant stuff.

Sounds amazing, presentation is stunning, but, as mentioned already, quite tricky to handle...Surprisingly, still available from Mondo - get it now or moan about reseller prices later...

Beautiful presentation and packaging but I would recommend being extra careful with how you handle the slip covers. Great sound and a beautiful listen. I’m surprised that as I write this it’s still available on Mondo and not sold out yet.

Nothing against this rather expensive work of art for collectors with 70 bucks in the pocket, but id rather have a warner vinyl pressing with the original cover for 20.

Packaging is fabulous in execution, perfectly ties itself as an artifact from the film. There aren't any mastering credits anywhere so it's assumed an in-house GZ job, which thankfully sounds fantastic. Big, full, dynamic. Unfortunately the pressing itself is okay to good. Some crackling at the beginning and end of each side, and a dash more than what I'd normally find acceptable during a few quiet moments. The beginning of side B has a big scrape across the first track but isn't audible. Typically I get lucky when it comes to GZ's work and this is the first sub-par set I've gotten from them in awhile. It beats the likes of others I won't go on any text walls about. All things considered the release itself is a keeper but buy with relative caution!

it's probably the most beautiful packaging of anything i've ever owned but it's sooo delicate so i doubt i'll be listening to these records much. Just trying to remove the belly band meant risking breaking the thing. STILL amazing though
