Sounds great!
Mine (sealed) came with commercial from Plastic Head with Belus and Fallen on it, so seems like there must be a repress from 2011 or later that doesn't have any changes to this version. It only says 2008 on the cover and vinyls.

This pressing sounds absolutely amazing! As others have already described, rich, deep and "thick", yet very natural sound that in my opinion honors this masterpiece to such degree I think it's the absolute best way to experience it.

Great version, probably the best way to listen to this fantastic album.

This sounds great & it is my favourite OG Burzum album \m/ fans of this album go ahead and pick it up don't fall for the back on black stories, listen to your vinyl on a good system and they will always sound good. I mean let's be real certain pressings do have better sound but I have 4 BOB vinyl so far and I love them all! My suspicion for the people who complain about vinyl pressings either have terrible speakers,no eq~ing on their receivers, or awful stylus/cartridge combos. I've never been disappointed with a record, and i spin pic discs too. You want good sound? invest in the equipment guys your vinyl is worth it, and you'll enjoy your tunes much more!

Amazing pressing. I'm used to working while listening to the spotify version and receiving this was a great surprise. I feel like I can hear everything more clearly. Deep bass and drums and clearer vocals. Thick sound.

Surprisingly good sound quality for a Back on Black pressing. My other BOB vinyl sound cheap and ripped from a CD by a computer, usually muddy and lackluster. But it works for Filosfem's lo-fi, tree-branch thin production sound. Very happy with this release.

Great sounding press! Kinda ironic to say about this album, though. Buy it!

Definitely sounds different than the cd. Sounds more thick which I like. Nice pressing.
