For clarity this is a review of the Friday Music vinyl reissue Bat Out Of Hell (180g Vinyl/Ltd. Ed) [VINYL
] and not the album itself. My ageing copy of this album always sounded a bit flat and far from dynamic. Until this morning I had thought this was just how it was meant to sound. How wrong. This reissue is like listening to the album for the first time. If you are considering adding this to your collection, then I highly recommend it. I paid around £17 and it is a bargain. If you love music on vinyl, and love Bat Out of Hell then this merits serious consideration. The album is in gatefold format, in loose plastic like MFSL rather than horrible clingfilm type wrapping. The gatefold opens to the lyrics. The record itself is contained in a relatively heavy clear plastic. This is my second Friday Music reissue - just listening to Stanley Clarke's School Days as I type - and both are treasures for vinyl fans.
