Next best thing to the 1979 ruby red translucent seeing it's a 40th anniversary. Great sound and love the black inner and white textured cover.Good it has the limited edition 40th anniversary sticker in there as well. I had a copy of this record once that was an import reproduction and sounded a bit faded. However, this is spot on!

She's Lost Control sounds super loud the way it should be

Nice Record to have

Many Thanks!

4.0 out of 5 stars Where will it end..?
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 27 January 2020
Bought the original album on it's release in 1979. As an 18 year old it instantly went to the top of my list of life-changing albums and remains there to this day. Anyone thinking of buying it won't need me to tell them what an astonishingly brilliant musical achievement it is.
However, to look specifically at this release; I was suckered into buying the 40th anniversary edition by all the nostalgia hype but was also hoping it might represent an uplift in sound quality from the 40 year old vinyl I still possess. I have to say the ruby red vinyl is rather striking, with a depth of colour not usually associated with vinyl pressings but I do remember, back in the day when coloured vinyl was the latest thing, the received wisdom was that the sound quality it offered was inferior to traditional black vinyl. I suppose, for an industry which had spent decades perfecting the quality of it's vinyl production to optimise sonic performance, adding coloured pigment was a bit like throwing a bag of sand into the mix.
I was prepared to accept that technology may have moved on, however, and gave it a run out. First impressions were OK but not overwhelming, so I did a direct side-by-side comparison with my original copy and was shocked. I could instantly hear that the 40 year old vinyl sounded distinctly better. Production sounded more transparent and definitely more punchy. The edgy, brittle attack of Stephen Morris's drum sound behind Hooky's rolling bass lines, instantly reproducing the impression I'd had as a teenager of a door being held open to to an undiscovered and gloriously dysfunctional Narnia.
But, as I say, that was my 40 year old copy and with the accompanying digital download sounding over-compressed (as all downloads do when you put them next to vinyl) the best I can say about the 40th anniversary edition is that it goes well with my room decor.
Perhaps this is, ultimately, where it all ends.
