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.

Reasonable price for a reasonable sounding record. Why it wasn't a double LP certainly baffles the mind.

Overall, sounds great. But for a MOV pressing, it's disappointing.

This pressing sounds good to me. This doesn't sound as good as the CD. Quiet vinyl and good quality jacket and sleeve. Reasonable price. Pick this one up.

I hesitated to buy this for a while based on some reviews here and in another forum but went ahead and picked it up anyway and I was pleasantly surprised. It's by no means an audiophile or demo-quality disc but it does sound good to me. I don't even have the CD anymore to do a proper A/B but based on memory alone, this vinyl pressing seems to "open up" the songs a little more. I can hear more detail and the recording seems slightly more tame or even to me. Unless you're super picky, I'd recommend getting this pressing.

Sounds dull compared to the original CD, soundstage and instrument separation are lacking in comparison. They might have used the original tapes for this pressing but it is not all analog, probably a hi-res transfer in 24/96. Thing is a 24/96 transfer should sound better than a CD, so maybe the problem is that they just tried to cram to much music onto one LP, a 58 minute album should at least be spread over 3 sides for optimum sound quality. Either way I'll just stick to the original CD.

Given that they crammed 52+ minutes of fairly high-dynamic-range music onto this thing, it sounds really really really good. I would absolutely recommend this.

I have done an A/B comparison of this versus the Simply Vinyl pressing, and this smokes the SV pressing, hands down. Everything I have purchased from MOV sounds great.
