A pop song with new age influence like both "Sadeness" and "Return to Innocence" reaching #5 and #4, respectively, on the Billboard Hot 100 is a monumental feat! Though back in the early 90s, the chart was so much more tolerant of different genres... See full review

Agreed!! It actually works so well on vinyl because of how it's separated into two albums. Listening to the 24 tracks on streaming just didn't have that separation and felt like just a bunch of tracks thrown together to me!

This is an outstanding pressing! Absolutely blew me away with its clarity and dynamics. One of the best sounding vinyl albums I've heard!

elektropop - This rare, out-of-print 4LP set itself is a collector's item! Sure, it's got a couple of errors (Music, Erotica), but it's still a solid compilation. It's wasn't made for collectors or to give fans rare mixes, etc. It was for the... See full review

Just got this repress. It's not frosted at all...in fact it's crystal clear with the same swirl pattern. Also, the packaging came all weird. The insert was backwards and the LP's were just thrown into it between the sleeves instead of being placed... See full review

Why the F does this release exist!? Who thought it would be a good idea to throw away 1/4 of the album and only include a random smattering of the tracklist on vinyl (including a song that's from the second album) and just include the whole album... See full review

VMP notifies everyone of what the Record of the Month will be with plenty of time before it ships. At that time, you can choose to swap the record for another one, or for store credit. That way, you won't be stuck with a third pressing of an album... See full review

Rumor has it anyone who got the gold variant by mistake is now being sent the clear variant automatically. Keep an eye on the mail!

I just mysteriously got a copy today out of the blue. Are they actually sending out whole new replacements? That's extremely generous if so! Either way, there's no telling what color it is from the packaging, and I'm not sure I want to open it. My... See full review

Yep, mine is a cloudy, translucent green also. Not the first time I've gotten a "coke bottle green" vinyl that wasn't transparent. Seems the industry has some confusion as to what coke bottle clear actually means.

Stunning package in every single way. Even the inside of the sleeves are printed meticulously! The record sounds pristine. I've never heard this album before, but I can definitely see why it's so beloved. Only thing is...the warped vinyl. VMP has... See full review

Same thing happened to me (but this happened via Bowie's official website, not through Rhino). I emailed a few times, they apologized each time and said they sent word to re-ship, etc...but nothing happened. Eventually they refunded me and I had to... See full review

This is simply an outstanding release! Above and beyond for an Urban Outfitters release, honestly. A 45 rpm pressing, this album really benefits from this. The sound quality is pristine! You can hear it right away, but it's most obvious on LP2 for... See full review

This sounds SO MUCH BETTER than the original release! Much clearer, the bass is deep and prominent, and the highs and crisp without being hissy like they were in 2012. Great vinyl transfer! As for the color...there's nothing "pink" about this, lol.... See full review

Whoever owns the rights to "Love Don't Live Here Anymore" didn't allow her to include it on the release, so it had to be cut.

To me, it reminds me of Scissor Sisters, which I suppose is also a throwback to 1980s New York!

Not sure what you're listening to...my copy sounds noticeably better than the original pressing of this album, with significantly higher dynamics.

I believe she mentioned that the song isn't "censored", per se. The bleeps are intentional.

This is kind of a lackluster pressing. The sound is muddy (more noticeable on some songs than others), which is a shame considering that some of the other albums in this MC30 series sound pretty great. Very disappointing...this is a pretty... See full review

Great to have this album on vinyl (not sure why it was retitled "Icon", but whatever). But I can't understand why the volume level is so low! It's like the pressing behaves as though there were 7 tracks per side when there's only 3-4. Otherwise, I... See full review

I don't know why this is so expensive here on Discogs...I just bought this album on US Amazon for $30 and they had plenty in stock!

Anyway, this is an okay pressing. Definitely should've been a 2xLP though, as it surely has room for improvement. ... See full review

djtenn2000 - I guess YOUR copy doesn't sound too nice, but I have the gold one, and just as COMEONOVER says, mine sounds pristine. Very silent with no pops or any other surface noise. You should probably get a new copy.

This is a cute-looking 7" single for a complete earworm of a song, but good lord is the quality of this release lacking! It sounds muddy, like you're listening to it with cotton in your ears, and is riddled with sibilance. There's so much dead wax... See full review

Beautiful high-quality picture so it's nice to look at. The plastic sleeve is absolute trash, though. Expect the record to cut right through it on all sides.

I don't know what's stopping Kylie and her team from making the vinyl releases the same as the deluxe editions being released on CD! Make this a 2xLP with 4 songs per side. Easy! This is getting absurd!

Complete bummer that it's missing a track. My biggest pet peeve about vinyl releases. They should've just done a 2xLP and preserved the artistic integrity. This honestly ruins the entire release for me.

I'm super happy to FINALLY get this on vinyl. The RSD debacle was inexcusable. That said, I'm a little disappointed in the sound quality. It could use a lot more bass, in my opinion, and the volume is a bit too low. All this the result of cramming... See full review

There is a severe inconsistency with this album then, or your ears are damaged. LP1 sounds incredibly sibilant, way too loud, and very distorted while LP2 (at 45 rpm) sounds much more balanced and dynamic. This is my one newer pressing. This is not... See full review

This pressing sounds awful. I can't place my finger on it, but it's like the sound is holding itself back. The vocals sound like they're in a tunnel almost. There's no real clarity, it's muddy and hazy. Really disappointing!
