So between the 2018 clear releases, and the 2003 German one - which do people prefer?

What a stunning sound! Quiet (really QUIET!!) pressing, clear sound, well mastered! Recommended if you haven't got any other LP Edition. I'm very happy with this! If this was released with a gatefold cover... it would be perfect!!

Has this version been remastered at all, or is it identical to the 2016 vinyl reissue?
