I have a problem with my copy of this release. Side A: the records sometimes sounds like the deck is going slower... But the deck is fine. I am quite disappointed.

This release : official or not, sounds very well. good pressing quality IMO. It comes with antistatic innersleeve.
This album : a fantastic piece of art. repetitive but never boring, especially on side B; the guitar play is quite heady. Side A is more immersive.

I dont know why the avg rating is only about 4.0/5 because, to me, this copy sounds OK and the sleeve as the label are like the original.

Does someone disagree with me ?
