Alice In Chains ‎– Dirt

Notes:
The track order on release was different than some reprints. Most regions' first printings had "Down In A Hole" as the second-to-last track, but some had it as track 4. Later reprints may be based on the alternate track order. On LP and Cassette this can change what the closing song of Side A and the opening song of Side B are.

I think all the 5 star reviews only listed to the first tracks of each side. This pressing is decent, however the last tracks on A/B are not listenable...Unfortunately two of Alice in Chains best songs, Rooster and Would? are massively affected by inner groove distortion. They should rerelease Dirt on 2xLPs like Facelift and not force the whole album on a single record.

So never spend more than 30 bucks on this version - you'll be disappointed
AIC will rerelease their albums on vinyl since they withdraw from the MOV contracts so just be patient :)
And this issue is not caused by my setup

Excellent pressing and a phenomenal album- pressed very loudly, and very quietly regarding surface noise. Punchy, and a great soundstage too. Not sure if these MOVs are sourced from analog or digital but this pressing sure beats any other digital format I’ve heard Dirt on! I’d definitely recommend giving this record a good wet cleaning before playing, as it came in the cardboard replica sleeve, which left a bit of paper dust and fragments in the grooves. Layne’s voice shines through the well layered bass, drums, and guitar tracks, which are all very present and well seated in the mix, and Jerry Cantrell’s guitar slices through each track like a knife. 11/10, been looking for this for ages and it was well worth picking up. I found my copy in the wild for msrp so there’s still hope beyond the scalpers!

I’ve listened to Dirt on CD and digital for years and this vinyl pressing sounds great to me. A lot of what people are complaining about here is just how the album has always sounded. Jar of Flies and Unplugged are much better sounding recordings. The MOV pressings of those 2 albums would pass audiophile muster a bit easier. Personally I wouldn’t let the negative reviews deter you if you want to own this classic album on vinyl. Would I buy a 2xLP newly remastered version? Absolutely. Although I’m not sure much more could be done with the recording.

Got a copy of this one a couple of months ago for 20 euros in a small shop from the city I live in.... Jizz now Discogs put the cheapest option on 49 euros... Even more. Sounds cool but It's crazy how prices rise

This album is one of my all-time favorites...it was one of the first records I bought in vinyl when I was 17 years old in 2010...before the vinyl boom explode again. At the time, I had a sound shitty system that belongs to my father...and this pressing just blow me away...I was quite impressed. Nowadays I have a pretty good system, I'm not saying top level, but material with great hi fi quality...and the band seems to be playing right in front of me, in my living room. Fantastic, this is definitely the pressing to get..of course when I buy this record I didn't pay these prices...I think I paid 15 euros for this album... and the record was VG+++. Even 11 years ago I thought to myself...you're basically giving me the record for free! Thanks anyway...obviously the record still with me...until death do us part.

Best version I’ve owned. I love this album and it one of my favorite albums ever. I’ve owned the South Korean, Brazil and 2009 MOV pressing. South Korean is OK, sounds like Cd, Brazil version sounds like a 8 track and has no bass. MOV version is very good, but the bottom end kind of lacks on it. This pressing has great bottom end and a very clean sound with good bass. Scope it out.

Grab this and let others pay over 300 dollars for red colored vinyl. Same mastering as the red. People are funny. Personally, I don't like red enough to pay almost 10 times the price. Amazed this hasn't been reissued again or at a minimum repressdd.

My copy sounds great. Had it for a few years, only my second listen. Big and full. Quiet vinyl. Very nice.
