Where is this pressed at? I'm usually able to identify deadwax, but can't place this one.
It's a good one though.

I'm also wondering if it's half speed cut. Miles Showell, at least these days at Abbey Road, seems to cut lacqueurs exclusively at half speed. Either way, his work is among the great names in the business.

WTF! This is a great sounding record! How did they make this sound so rad! I love Parlophone when it comes to reissues, they make sure the pressing quality is above par just like the recent Bowie reissues or any of the Blur reissues, never have any defects and come in polylined sleeves so the vinyl is super clean. A+ on the sound too, don't own an original but I can't imagine it sounding better than this. The fullness and prescence they managed to add to this electronic music is amazing. Never gets muddy and is very detailed. High definition sound coming from every direction. Some of the music even takes on a rich analog sound like early Depeche Mode releases. Have to give this reissue 10/10

My copy matches this listing in terms of jacket, hype sticker, inside plain poly-lined sleeve and inner picture sleeve. However, there is no center label matrix/runout and there is no reference to SOURCE anywhere. The matrix/run-out on mine ONLY references MILES MASTERPIECE and the V 2848 A-01-01 and B-01-01 (as reflected the 2015 pressing entry here). However my copy is definitely not the 2015 pressing listed in here either as the jacket is entirely different from that one and it contains all attributes of the 2017 pressing.
