  • Uanabimo
AVOID. This was always a muddy recording, but this pressing is just woeful. Dull, lifeless, and in need of a proper remaster.
  • Fesho
So between the 2018 clear releases, and the 2003 German one - which do people prefer?
  • Wal
2003 German pressing is LEAGUES better than the RSD issue.
  • Sharpmane
Sounds absolutly great. Yes I have the german original and both are great. This is new cut and done at Capitol.
  • Whitecaster
Has this version been remastered at all, or is it identical to the 2016 vinyl reissue?
  • Leniga
Definitely. I have compared both releases quite a lot to be sure and I confirm that the german one sounds much better on songs like "Candy Perfume Girl" "Ray Of Light" or "Swim".
  • Elizabeth
  cornlodef - So that German one says it's remastered from the original source. That makes a big difference? There seem to be quite a lot of these on sale for a good price...thinking of buying a copy (this would be my third Ray of Light on vinyl, haha). Does it sound that much better than these Rhino reissues?
  • Mr.Champions
I have listened to my copy (received today) but although it is a great pressing I am listening to the german one and I m a little bit disappointed because it sounds pretty better! I could have saved my coins for another record....Read the discogs reviews:https://www.discogs.com/es/Madonna-Ray-Of-Light/release/3524476
  • Hellstaff
I went ahead and bought it. I think it does sound different, but not necessarily better. Some songs sound good. Clear, and less muddy than the original. But many songs sound almost to the point of being brickwalled.
  • Ohatollia
I'd like to know that too, I'm tired of spending money on different versions of the same record. On top of that coloured vinyls sound usually like crap. Anybody has more information about this release??
