Sounds good. Side 1 is great, it has the best songs and the most space. Side 2 is crammed and does feel a bit flat. The 2xLP probably has more breathing room and stronger bass. But this album never had great dynamic range. I always thought the second half of the CD sounded flat. So is it the pressing or the music? Difficult to say. Overall I am satisfied with this available and affordable pressing of one of Beck's lesser efforts.

Music: 7/10
Pressing: 8/10

How's the sound? I noticed that they crammed 2 LPs into 1 LP.

Can anyone confirm that the US pressing is actually 140 gram vs 180 gram for European?
