Avoided picking this up for a while because of the $26 price tag in store and never heard of culture factory so who knows what the quality of this release is. Found it on sale for $16 so I bought it. It's actually a very quiet,centered, flat and well pressed record so good job on that. The sound isn't all that bad either. The mastering is really good. Acoustics are strong and bright. Drums sound decent. But separation and clarity is lacking. Vocals seem muddied and weak at times. Definitely sounds like a high res file was used as the source. But honestly, they make it sound pretty good. Tones are clean and balanced. Bass is full. You just don't get that depth and warmth that makes analog recordings so special. But for the meantime, this will work as a clean, quiet copy of a great album even if the sonics aren't quite audiophile grade. I would reccomend if you can find for less than $20
