I always liked this album. Pleasuredome was an almost impossible album to follow up. I mean, where do you go with one of, if not the (Dare apart) iconic albums of the 80's? But this album had some cracking tunes - Warriors, Rage Hard, Wildlife, Heaven's Sake.
Nice spot @spaceisace and a proper bargain.
not my cuppa tea but hopefully of help to someone
"Well 'ard!!"
Well there's a waste of money.......
Lunar Bay should have been a single....
I was listening to Pleasuredome the other week..... with headphones on... Screaming my head off like a demented elephant with a thorn in its foot... pity my neighbours...!
Since when have LP's been weighed???
Relax, don't do it, when you want to come home to decent music, look elsewhere.

For about 40 years or more, but the last 20 years it's more common. I remember buying 180g versions in the 1980's, they always sounded better.
ZTT pressings where always of high quality too.

Well that's the first time I've heard of it, and I've bought a fair few in my time!
A genuinely seriously under rated album.
The intro track, Warriors Of The Wastelands........classic....
I'm just never ever ever ever going to vote on _any_ lp. Unless the original master tapes have been lost

Or their never were any, I think at that time the artist sang loudly into a microphone and the movement of the diaphragm caused a thorn to score a track in a shellac disk from which a master pressing was made. It didn't change much.

I've probably got the details wrong but it doesn't matter now because fortunately for most people the compact disk came along.

I remember Japanese pressings which did sound a little better initially until they got worn, of course.

Then we got digitally remastered, which ruined a lot of albums and singles. I still by LP's, maybe not as many as I used to.

Why stop at 45s, if 'they've' got mastertapes why not remaster them as 78's ? They must sound even better.

I'm simply amazed at the contortions and the expense some people here go to to get lps.

The music industry must be laughing itself silly. The CD was invented. What a mistake. A medium which didn't wear out. Aside from Laser Rot (which seems to have been overcome), electronically and physically a medium which was as near to the original as was necessary.(IMO) No special equipment was needed for excellent sound!. Linn fought a loosing battle, but even they succumbed. Albeit with a range of 'superior' CDs that only their players can play.

What a mistake for the music industry! However, they hadn't been so stupid when it came to video products.

Now when they thought that market had been lost, a new bunch of users has arisen. Buying their disks from anywhere they can at whatever cost and playing them on Dansette type of players. Great.

I'm just never ever ever ever going to vote on _any_ lp. Unless the original master tapes have been lost. Or their never were any, the silly sheep can do what they want

Wonder if Trevor Horn actually let them play on this one?
