Nice pressing and the SAP album seems to sound even better than Jar of Flies.

Thanks Music On Vinyl for a typically great quality pressing and higher than average quality cover. They never cease to impress me. And what an album, the first track has one of the all time greatest guitar solos ever, the first 3 tracks are simply genius. The whole album is a work of art. Has a place in anyones collection.

Man I got totally stiffed when I bought this. Had no idea this was released. Bought it for $45 at a shop. That hurts.

Bought the 2010 MOV reissue on vinyl after seeing the good reviews. Covers are cd art blown up. The sound quality is very good clear with no distortion. Records have no surface noise. MOV did a great job with this!

Very happy with this set of EPs. Yes, SAP could've been split to two sides but it sounds great anyway and the etching on side 2 of that record is a cool touch. The gatefold sleeve and inners are thick, sturdy and glossy. The vinyl is glossy and quiet (I wasn't sure the stylus had touched down when the first track began) and even the labels are well finished. So overall, a high quality re-issue that i'm very pleased i bought and would recommend. I paid more than the average album price $51NZ (about $38US) but i'm happy.

Why didn't they split SAP over two sides of the second record rather than waste the fourth side? Doesn't make sense to me...

Sound is good but unlike many of my favorite records I don't usually reach for the vinyl over the CD. I still vividly remember when Jar of Flies came out and the awe I felt for the dynamics that the CD allowed. Right away with "Rotten Apple," it's so exquisitely produced and engineered... the bass, guitar effects, percussion, Layne's haunting vocals... it all resonated so deeply partially because the dynamic range of the CD. The vinyl is well done though and definitely has its moments on both Jar of Flies and Sap. One other thing to note is the artwork. They are scans blown up from the CD. Jar of Flies is very pixelated. Besides that it's a good package and the etching on Sap is awesome.
