5.0 out of 5 stars The path is clear...., 14 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Seconds Out [VINYL] (Vinyl)
....and, oh my goodness, so is the music. For clarification this review refers to the 180gm vinyl reissue of Seconds Out released Nov 2012. Reviews elsewhere will inform you about the music, but this focuses entirely on the reissue itself. My aging copy of this album has been a reference through many years, turntables, amplifiers and speakers. From the moment the needle hits vinyl you realise how much has been missing. I could bang on about deeper bass, clarity and separation of instruments and voices, but if you are reading this, love the album, have a halfway decent turntable based hi-fi system, and are wondering if it was worth the £25-30 or possibly more then the answer is an unequivocal yes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning reissue, 23 Jun 2012
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.
