As soon as the needle drops so does my jaw. This pressing is amazing! The music is awesome. Releases like this are what makes RSD great. Originally pressings are hard to find but even when you do find one there is audible noise on originals. This was cut from the analog tapes and pressed PERFECTLY. This should be going for $100 instead of some of those other trendy releases. If you're even slightly interested just buy it. No way you will regret it.
