This supposedly uses The Exchange as the mastering studio so it should be similar to an original press which also had them.
And it does sound good with great extension of bass and general dynamics. My main gripe is actually the presence of the vocals. Usually you want them more brought out and forward but in this more acoustic piece of music it becomes more of an exaggeration rather than a realistic reproduction. The voice is simply too big in the soundstage on most tracks compared to the rest of the instruments.
But perhaps it was a conscious stylistic choice. Some recorded micro dynamics on the guitar could have been bettered also.
But other than that I have no complaints, the sleeve is great, the vinyl quiet enough, but could be better. Although what do you expect from GZ.

Equipment Used:
Rega RP1 with Nagaoka MP-200 Cartridge
Cyrus 2 Amplifier
System Fidelity SF-3050 Tower Speakers
Custom made HQ Speaker Cables

I wish I had the great pressing everyone else describes. The recording itself has a great warmth and great soundstage, but the surface noise is high enough to slightly crackle through the entire time its playing.

Sound quality and pressing are both superb. One of the better sounding modern day records I own.

Gem of a pressing. What a wonderful experience. Rain and tea and convenience.

Does side B have extra noise for anyone else? Side A sounds great. B not so much. Just trying to see if I got a bad one or if it's a crap pressing.

Does this have any sticker stating the colour?
Or limited quantity?

It sounds amazing. Probably the best sound I got out of my turntable.
