OMG - what a horrible sound ! - just compared with original press: seams like the highs have been pushed brutally to the limits. sounds nearly like a CD rip. all the grace and subtlety of the original recordings killed. now I understand why the 1st pressing is so expensive. will definitely keep mine :-)
PS: jacket reproduction also very cheap

My whole B side sounds like the needle has broken and the cables are all messed up it's that bad I had to check the cables . Worst press in my whole collection for a 'mint' record. Awful press on that disc AMBLP3922 B1 MPO 20158010. Will review comments and search for a better copy

I have a Matt @ Metropolis version but the runout are AMBLP 3922 D3 0682154 on the C/D side ... same version or earlier press?
The A side matches on the runouts for this listing

I really do not know which pressing i have in my collection. It is so difficult if not impossible to tell apart the 2013 and 2018 pressings. The mint marks on my copy are etched and almost impossible to read. Regardless of that I am very happy with this my discs. The sound quality is superb given what the source material is ( is it DAT or audio cassette tape or both ? ). The tracks themselves will never sound outdated or obsolete. They are timeless classics that I could listen to again and again. All the tracks are excellent and this a must own release for every true electronics music aficionado out there. [ Playing this using an Ortofon 2M Black cartridge. ]

Ah, glad I finally read the reviews here because I thought I was going crazy and caused the horrendous sound on disc 1 (A is horrible)

Might be a stupid question but...
I don’t get it. How can I identify the release date of my copy?!. Haha

I have a different variant on all sides. I do have the etched MPO & Matt At Alchemy. Mine is also stamped with the MPO logo and runout etched on side 1 is 19 146777. How many variants are there? None of the sides of mine are listed in the identifiers above.
