As other people have noted, it sounds pretty bad. Actually, I got an original pressing when it first came out and it sounded just as terrible. Honestly there is just too much music on each side plus the hidden track plus all the intense volume changes equals this is always going to sound pretty bad on vinyl unless they do a major remix / remaster and spread it out over two LPs. On the other hand it's a Mr. Bungle album. Just pretend the noise is how it's supposed to sound. I've had 2 different crappy pressings and am not going to bother getting another.

Legendary Experimental Major Label release. Still holds it's weight today, but needs to be remastered. The Plain Release both green vinyl and black 180grm release SUCKS. The Sound is so WEEK that you can crank up the volume and still be barely able to hear it no matter how good your needles are. Overall if your a beginner collecting vinyl this is not too bad for the price. But Waste of money if your a True Fan.
