Sounds really, really good! Great presence and eq. Like somebody said below, the right amount of punch. I detected slight surface noise in some parts (very low), but now I'm thinking it comes from the LPs used for the samples. I'm enjoying it so much. Best Christmas gift ever! ;)

I thought it was going to be 2 LPs judging by how massive the tri-fold cover was and I was worried when I found it to be a single LP with teenie little tracks almost the whole way to the center label... But I was pleasantly surprised with how great this pressing sounded through and through. Very well equalized with just the right amount of punch. The inner most tracks lose a little bit of presence, but that is to be expected. It's been a couple decades since I listened to this album and it is even better than I remembered. Highly recommended.

Like everyone else has said in the comments, this is a phenomenal pressing. Dead quiet! Unfortunately the gatefold packaging itself leaves a lot to be desired; cheap, overly-glossy cardstock that buckles and bulges when folded.

Does not have the (error?) at end of LP side 2 which sounds like a quick fade out and then a very slight needledrop type of sound back to the faded track which the first USA press has at end of LP. Still a weird quick fade out that cuts off abruptly after the studio chatter but no reintro back. Unsure if that was originally an error or meant to sound like that.

Record is pressed on heavyweight vinyl and weighs in at 176 grams. A much better offering at least in terms of presssing quality compared to the 1989 original issue. Has a MUCH quieter back ground quality, a little more dynamic but sounds slightly more compressed and the stereo image a bit wider. Overall a fabulous reissue in this case.

Copies of this can be found at Winners clothing stores across Cana-duh. Reasonable price as well.

Sounds gorgeous. Way better than my CD from BITD (though, admittedly, my gear is probably better now than I could afford BITD :-), didn't have that turntable $). All of the no-clearance samples and psychedelic vocals come through loud and clear. I definitely hear new details. Bass in the face. A real treat.
