Black Sabbath: Master of Reality      (3 of 3 found this review helpful)

I'd have to agree with Analogue above. Paranoid was absoutely stunning and I was surprised. This album, sonically, doesn't hit its stride until Track 3 "Embryo" and 4 "Children Of The Grave", which is pretty well done if you turn up the volume a bit. (Read: Not overly compressed.) Track 5 "Orchid" ... more

You know maybe I don't get it - and I usually am pretty open to finding the qualities of recordings... But, looking at this album's contemporaries, like Dark Side of the Moon, I see absolutely no reason why it sounds so horrible. Now it's probably the original recording and not the SACDs fault.. But ... more

Come to think of it, no, all of the problems I have had have been discs housed in digipaks. The problem is sometimes visible, but for example on my DVD-A of "REM - Monster" you can't see a *thing* wrong with it, but it stops at 1:07 on track 4, no matter what, no matter what player, and will not play any tracks past that. So something is ... more

Yeah, unfortunately. I have a lot of players, and none of them would read past the same points on each disc. I've got a friend with the same problem who's in Virginia, and the climate there is quite different from here, so I was guessing climate at first (dry rot or humidity) - but now I'm thinking just a "bad batch" - or very possibly, we get ... more
