I'm surprised to see people saying it's a good sounding record. Totally disagree. Terrible pressing. ABed it against my CD copy, and the vinyl pressing is really lumpy in the low mids, is VERY quiet (needed to crank it up, which raises the surface noise) and also had less high frequency definition. 3/10.

Nice sound but lots of clicks and crackles in my new copy, it's a shame because it's an excellent record.

This sounds fantastic. It's too bad it doesn't have the embossed title like the UK version does.
