Editorial Reviews

This 40th anniversary edition has been remastered by original Trident Studios engineer Ray Staff (at London s Air Studios). This special, limited edition format of 180G heavyweight vinyl features the new 2012 remaster with a 5.1 mix and high resolution audio on DVD the DVD features previously unreleased 5.1 and stereo bonus 2003 Ken Scott mixes of Moonage Daydream (instrumental), The Supermen, Velvet Goldmine and Sweet Head. Famously Bowie killed Ziggy at his peak at London s Hammersmith Odeon, on July 3rd, 1973, though Ziggy Stardust s influence was to redefine popular culture forever: pop music was never the same again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ziggy Loud and Clear! (Review for 2016 180g Vinyl Release)
By Mr. Saratoga, the Music Man on August 23, 2022
One of my favourite Bowie records, next to "Station To Station". Music speaks for itself, so this review concentrates on the 2016 180g vinyl release.

I had actually not owned a copy of this album on vinyl, and had picked up the 2022 half-speed mastered edition at a local record shop. Went to play it and while sound OK, it sounded muddy, in some cases distorted and in short...just did not sound right. "Suffragette City" in particular did not sound like it should. Comparing to that track on my old 1976 pressing of Changesonebowie...that sounded MUCH better despite the clicks and pops. Who knows why...could be that the album was mastered from a digital copy of the original master tape, could have been defective, maybe did not like my turntable setup (although it sounded similar on 2 other tables, 2 different cartridges that I have)...not sure.

Given my positive experience with the 2016 180g remaster of "Station To Station", I decided to try this edition, purchased from Amazon. NIGHT AND DAY DIFFERENCE! Zero surface noise, no clicks, no pops, no skips (while some folks here received defective records or perhaps had to tweak their turntable setups, mine required none at all...I'm running a Shure M44E with a Jico SAS N55E stylus on a Sansui 1050E turntable for reference). Simply put, it sounded RIGHT! Crystal clear instrumentation, Bowie's voice sounded as it should and excellent stereo separation.

Audio review (equipment, albums, music in general) is super subjective, so I ask you to take my review with a giant grain of sand and a very generous pour Margarita :), but I can tell in the 30+ years of buying/playing/collecting vinyl, this is an outstanding vinyl pressing of this album. Enjoy!
