I think this is a record distributor in Germany.
I'm looking to buy an album that they pressed. Anyone heard of them, good bad?

I had a recent post that was defined as the 'stupidist post ever'.
I'm not sure where this one fits, but I hear crickets.
Did I post in the wrong area?

The thought crossed my mind.
It's something I didn't think was possible around here!

Hello! 'At the Very Least'...

It would most certainly would help, if you let us know which 'Specific' Album...
You were perhaps interested in?

I didn't think it was a dumb question, granted it was a little vague.
I'm quite sure Obi felt the same, he's pretty sharp.
I would have been happy to provide more info if you didn't feel it was necessary to insult me first.
So, to you, and the other know it all's that chimed in.
If you don't have an answer, and none of you did, keep your less than complimentary comments to yourself. There's no need to be rude. It really ruins the spirit of the forum and keeps others with questions, from participating in the forums.
Have a nice day.

Things are getting off topic here folks. The subject is Metronome Musik.

Why Monkey around, here is a link.

https://www.discogs.com/label/95013-Metronome-Musik-GmbH

The company was shut down on December 31st 1996.

It is what it is, or was...

Seems like a reasonable question to me. The OP was probably hoping someone had purchased an album from them and was wanting feedback.

To me, at least, Metronome Music seems like one of the biggest record companies that almost no one knew existed before this thread. Their catalog is far more extensive than I had ever thought possible, but what really surprised me was the number of big stars with the biggest selling titles from the 60s, 70s and 80s that released albums through them. People/groups like Ace of Base, George Benson, Petula Clark, War, Richie Family, Village People, Morris Albert (Feelings), Sugarhill Gang (Rappers Delight), The Cure, Kool and the Gang, Donna Summer, Bananarama, Credence Clearwater Revival, Bill Haley & the Comets, Buddy Holley. Elton Johns Greatest Hits, Louis Armstrong .... just to name a few. I even pulled out several albums and singles from the above, and I'll be damned it it wasn't listed right there in the fine print on each an every album.

Who knew?

I was in the same boat.
Where I was going with this was quality of pressing. I'm far from an expert on who, or in this case, what country has the best pressings. From what I have gathered, there is a lot of sub par stuff out there and some countries seem to have a bad rap. The context maybe relative to new albums, album re releases or new runs of old stuff.
Again, I should have been more clear. However I found, in the past, this site is full of very insightful people and usually someone is in the know. I guess this was the one in a million that stumped everyone.
I thought about re-posting with a better description of what I was after, it may have inspired some lively contributions and info. But honestly, in light of some of the childish and smarmy comments, I'm not into anymore abuse.
To those who responded sincerely, thank you.
