Unquestionably the best pressing currently available. Side D is unnecessary and skippable, but allows the album to be spread out on 3 sides (which is absolutely needed). Cut loud and has a nice punchy low end, never overpowering. Pressing is solid. While not outstanding, much better than the US pressing from the same year. I assume they use the same lacquer cut but it's not clear. There is a distinct difference in pressing quality as this one is fairly quiet, even in the dead spots. Even a clean US pressing is noisy to the point of distraction.

Biggest flaw here is that the inner groove distortion on each side. No sibilance or anything... just the higher the pitch frequencies start to deteriorate at the end of each final track at the end. Does not impact the rest. It Was A Good Day sounds about as damn smooth as a triple-double.

The original issueis enjoyable, but has a few major issues. The Back To Black is very compressed and has a lot of clipping. The US 2016 repress version is a much worse pressing using the original Rainbo plates, which no reasonable person with a soul can enjoy. This 2x LP is a nice sweet spot. Wish these weren't as rare and could justify the price, but at least you should be satisfied with the end product.

... still waiting on a Kevin Gray AAA Pallas VMP pressing to come through, but until then this will hold you down.

This 2LP set is definitely the best pressing of The Predator out there; I’ve heard the back to black 1lp and this 2lp pressing sounds way, way better. Becoming pretty rare, starting to be one of those hard to find joints, so if you can find this for a decent price, grab it!!!

I have an OG copy that is VG+ to NM visually, but I have alot of sibalance/hissing on the inner tracks on both sides. Its hard forme to believe this thing has inner groove wear, but the hiss is significant. Anybody else have this issue?
