A beautiful album. However this pressing leaves much to be desired. The cover is cheap, the innersleeve is that horrid white paper that will scratch the LP upon removal or reinsertion- so must be replaced immediately. After cleaning, still I noticed excessive surface noise throughout. No info on what was used to cut the master, but I suspect it was the same digital file used to cut the CD as highes seem a bit shrill and the overall sound seems a bit compressed. A disappointing product overall. If you get a dud-- please return it-- it's the only way the labels will ever learn to stop churning out crap and calling it a "premium product".
