Review by jcarr73729 March 21, 2014 (6 of 8 found this review helpful)
I do not agree with the previous reviews, especially saying this release is not compressed. The SACD layer has a DR of 8, whereas I have a redbook CD with a DR of 13. The SACD is another 'loudness' victim. Hardly audiophile material, but yet another hi-res release spoiled by irresponsible dynamic compression.

Performance:   Sonics:
I agree with jcarr. Dynamics have been compressed and the sound is fatiguing. Disappointing since this was supposedly taken from the original UK tapes. Wasted opportunity.

Performance:   Sonics:
When this was released I never bought in to the hype. I was too occupied with my Zeppelin, Who, Floyd, Can, and Stones albums. So now in the year 2014 I finally decide to give this a fair chance. And I am so glad I did! I now understand why this was hailed as an important rock album. It truly captures the spirit of the time and their playing is pretty damn good! I love the in your face intensity each and every song has, and this easily stands next to the first Clash album! Now lets talk about the sonics...this is not compressed as some others have mentioned. Now the sound quality is not on the same level as some of the other SA-CD/SHM titles, but for this type of music and the way it was recorded originally, this baby really sounds great! It is clean, the bass nice and tight and decent separation through out! It screams to be played loud as do most CDs on this format.
