Really great pressing, definitely was blown away by the sound of tracks like Down In A Hole and Them Bones. It does suffer from distortion on the last tracks on each side however.

Compared this edition to the original 1992 UK vinyl, I found this release pretty average.
The original has very detailed highs and mids, and wider soundstage. cymbals are crisp and vocals sounds more open and clear.
The MOV sounds louder in comparison, less detailed, has a "modern" feel to it. Stronger bass, vocals a bit muddier, cymbals sunk in the mix a bit, guitars sounds pretty good... Pressing itself is excellent, very quiet.
Cover art is a low resolution upscale with terrible colors.
Not a bad release, but original is better.

From an audio standpoint, I don't hear anything special about this pressing that makes it stand out from the original CD. I'd also love to hear a bigger drum sound. The drums sound a bit dead/flat. This leads me to believe it didn't get the proper treatment. It doesn't sound bad by any means. If you are a huge Alice In Chains fan, then you can't go wrong with this for the sheer novelty aspect of owning this album on Vinyl.

I'm suprised by some of the comments oh here. My copy has always sounded great. I think MOV has done a great job with Dirt, Unplugged, and the Mad Season record is amazing. No complaints from me.

By far their biggest and most popular album making it almost impossible to have a unique take on. It's the perfect marriage of angular harmonies, honest lyrics and classic early 90's rock production. Not my personal favourite of thiers but undoubtedly an essential representation of the scene they helped bring to the world. This is a very clean no frills master. Would have liked to see a remaster but music on vinyl tends keep true to the original albums master and packaging which is hard to complain about with classic album like this.

This is an all around good pressing! I'd give it ⭐⭐⭐ out of ⭐⭐⭐⭐. My copy didn't have any playback issues. The dynamics on the drums feel a tad "dead" imo but not terrible. This is definitely worth the money overall.

The sound is great. Clear and dynamic. Couldn't be better...

Just had a listen to the 1992 CD . i wasn´t really surprised when i liked it way better than this reissue . I got to stop buying reissues , especially remastered ones . (check my collection if you would want some ) Every single one i have sounds awful ."Clarity , Detail , soundstage , and so on" are the words used to try to describe or sell us some dead sounding and mostly way too much high-frequency-EQ´ed´s kind of magic how they manage to erase every single mojo and vibe from once , and still , great sounding recordings . i guess they just don´t care that much but about the money .

A seriously good repress. 57 minutes on 1 disc, and no audible compromises. Clear, dynamic, bassy and, unlike other lengthy single-disc albums, cut surprisingly loud. Not sure how they managed this, as it looks like a regular lacquer-cut record, not DMM.
I don't believe that Dirt was ever issued on vinyl in the US, so anyone from there interested in a copy should seek this one out. Nicely done, MoV!

Second copy I got and again it's got a pressing error (a scratch that produces a 10 second click on the beginning of God Smack). Plus there's still quite noticeable inner groove distortion. Screw this pressing, I'm returning it and not buying it again.

And, no, it's NOT a remaster. I got Them Bones (7 inch single) and it sounds exactly the same as the one in this pressing.
