Reclaimed a copy after selling it a few years back. What a mistake that was, but fortunately these are floating around for reasonable prices nowadays. If 4 Men With Beards have any diamonds in their largely offensive catalog, this is that diamond. It sounds great. Why they can't do this with all of their releases is beyond my comprehension. My copy is fairly quiet and the disc itself is flat. The mastering sounds superb. Save your money on those expensive box sets and pick this one up.
