Does the coloured vinyl pressing sound good? I've heard that coloured vinyl doesn't sound that good, a notable example would be Kate Bush's Hounds Of Love which was originally released on pink vinyl, but it was reissued later that year because the vinyl quality was terrible.

Pretty sure (correct me if I'm wrong, vinyl folks) - that the color of the wax doesn't affect sound at all. Maybe the Kate Bush album was just mastered poorly/pressed at a cheap place?

colored vinyl will deteriorate quicker than black vinyl. white is the worst color.

It could be that too, because Audio Fidelity reissued the album and it sounds quite good to my ears...

Funny how you ignore the 800 other threads on SHtv that don't support what you are saying at all.

you're right. i was focusing on the handful that still believe they have evidence to the contrary. from what i gather a lot of the argument is that most people with new colored vinyl have no problem with how it sounds and people with old colored vinyl have noticed other things. ie - its usually a pressing issue and truth is that 9 pressing plants out of 10 are much better at doing carbon black than any other especially the further back into the past you go.
