I just got this the other day, sealed/brand new straight from Acoustic Sounds. I was disappointed to find some pretty significant scratches in the record that causes a repeating pop on one side. Otherwise, it sounds great. I think I hit the unlucky lottery a bit.

This MFSL pressing is beyond believable!!! I have been listening to this classic Dire Straits album ever since it came out, and have owned several issues on LP and CD. However, when I played the MFSL vinyl issue, it felt as if I am hearing it for the first time. The dynamic range on track "The Mans Too Strong", including the underlying earth-shaking timpani bass, gives you chills and makes the heart skip the beat. Mid-range bloom, drums, highs, lows, stage, on the entire album in this pressing, makes it worth at any cost you may have to pay. A must have for anyone who likes this album!

Although the MoFi 45 vinyl is the best version of this album, I prefer the sound of my records mastered from analog.

I tried two different copies (from the same store) and both had very loud clicks at the very beginning of the first song on side A.
I returned my record so I don't remember the number of my record unfortunately but still be aware.
Clicks were very loud and repetitive (definitely a defect) and the same on both copies I had tested.

Easily the best sounding album in my collection. Most people know that the original LP sounds terrific as well, but mofi really perfected these songs with their Gain 2 magic and by spreading it all out on two 45 rpm LPs. Pure listening bliss. Plus the extended/uncut songs are a true blessing.

there appears to be a pressing fault around 2/3 of the way through Walk Of Life that affected all copies of the LP we received (dozens) in the 11,000 range. Queried MFSL and they said this is not a fault but is due to "a large amount of base on the record" - odd, given the issue appears only once and in exactly the same place, and you can see the needle and cartridge physically shake at that point. Apparently there's replacement discs available, however our suppliers weren't aware...

After hearing this in comparison to the 1st issue CD version from 1985, I believe the MFSL edition blows the CD out of the water. Has more warmth and sonic clarity without a flatness to it. Definitely pick one up even if you're not a big Dire Straits fan.
