Yet another noisy pressing of this wonderful soundtrack.
on 16 June 2017
A wonderful soundtrack probably Hans Zimmer best. I already have the now extremely expensive ORG issue ( 2 copies) which had a dreadful noisy pressing and there is much online comment about this.The ORG mastering was nevertheless as good as it gets but unfortunately the noisy pressing was quite distracting.ORG in fact conceded there was a problem and even sent me a couple of copies from USA but there was little improvement.Hence my purchase of this much cheaperDecca issue. No its not as crackle free as I would wish but in that respect it is considerably better than the ORG. The mastering is good but not in the same league as the ORG which was pressed at 45 rpm for improved sound quality.ORG informed me that they no longer hold the licence to repress so there is virtually no chance of getting hold of a perfect ORG copy. Don't get me wrong if you haven't heard the ORG and buy this new Decca issue you will not be disappointed. All I really want is a noise free pressing so I propose to exchange the latest purchase. Fingers crossed.A noise free pressing would warrant the full five stars.
