Good deal. Opinions on the 180 gram remasters are mixed. Remastering and pressing quality varies dramatically.

I have generally had good luck on true remasters from Classic and analog productions. Check to see if they are just putting the album out in 180g or are they actually using the original tapes. Some of the 180g stuff is being remastered from CDs or digital copies. there is a post here on that very issue.
Cool, glad it sounds better. Its a common issue.
I like the originals if possible but many are rare and high priced at least for mint copies) so I have purchased a lot of reissues on 180 gram. There are mixed reviews from some on the quality and/or mixing of the reissues-some are definately better than others-but at least they are available. Try a few and see what you think.
