I can see in the one image above that the cuts of the songs are as one whole cut. There seems to be no cut space inbetween the lp, so I don't know if that is just a flau on that copy or if all are like that.

Definitely a good amount of surface noise. The fidelity is still good, but between the tracks the surface noise of this pressing is undeniable. My copy is also slightly off-center. None of these issues are deal breakers, especially given how inexpensive this pressing is, but buyer beware.

My copy sounds great. It seems like only a couple people got bad copies and everyone else is really happy with it. Every pressing will have some duds.

My copy sounds great. No issues. Dead quiet, dead centered, sounds great. I wouldn't stay away from this just because a few people have had bad luck, but keep the receipt, I guess.

I honestly don't understand what the commotion is with the negativity on this release. My copy that I got as a gift this past summer sounds spectacular;dead quiet, awesome sonics, almost perfectly centered, not warped and no IGD whatsoever. Perhaps I got one of the few good ones? The only thing I noticed after a few plays on the very beginning of side 1 is that sort of "ingrained surface noise" that I've heard about with this release, but this is almost unnoticeable and minuscule in comparison to the punch that it this album provides. The best alternative to an original, or at least the 1st Rhino ones

confusing, on the back it says This Reissue copyright 2007 sire records.... but this is a 2014 release?? what?

Also, most copies are off centered /: Thanks a lot Rhino....

WARNING!! My 2014 Rhino Records copies are garbage. DO NOT BUY THIS US COPY. I got a replacement from Dr Rhino himself and that copy was worse than the first. A sealed record should be flawless, It shouldn't look and sound like someone pressed it in their basement then scraped it on the counter many times. I sent pictures to Dr Rhino he said he send another one. again I told him not to bother if he couldn't locate a perfect one. Never heard back - imagine that.

Excellent quality. Sounds great too with minimal noise.
