I have not compared with any other pressing, but my copy has always sounded terrible. The tone is thin, it's distorted with very faint static, and it even has a subtle fluctuation of dynamics. The vinyl looks nice but it's always a disappointing listen. In fact, I am going to search for a second copy from a different pressing and retire this.
