This is a really nice British copy of Animals on the original custom Harvest Labels with 4U / 2U stampers. The sound is strong and the vinyl plays pretty well for the most part. There are some spots with surface noise but that's all but unavoidable on UK copies of Animals. Believe me on this -- I've spent big bucks bringing these over from England and they are almost always noisy even when they look clean. You'll have a very hard time finding a copy that sound this good and plays any quieter! David Gilmour is an absolute beast on this album, the extended songs give him a chance to really work his magic.
4 stars Allmusic: "Animals is all extended pieces, yet it never drifts -- it slowly, ominously works its way toward its destination."
Vinyl: VG+ (hairlines but nothing feelable)
Cover: VG+ (nick on spine, light wear on top seam but very nice)
Play notes: A really great sounding copy with light to moderate surface noise at times.
We prefer to overdeliver and therefore grade conservatively. Our scale runs Near Mint (NM), Excellent (EX), Very Good Plus (VG+), Very Good (VG), Good Plus (G+), Good (G).
