I am seriously impressed with this pressing. Everything is top quality and the limited edition color is a nice touch. But, the star of the show is the mastering. All of the songs sound better than ever and have more depth than the CD that I’ve been listening to for 25 years. “Boxing” especially stands out and resonates like never before. I was afraid of how this release would sound after I heard a slew of bad things about Plain’s 2011 attempt at a rerelease of this album. But, I’m thankful that I gave this one a shot and that they did this one right. Don’t hesitate to buy it while it is still regular price. At 1000 copies, this one is bound to become rare and expensive.

Anyone know how this sounds? Is it a good pressing or the usual Plain poor pressing?
