Nice collector issue, but offers no real improvement over the original first issue CD pressing. It's hard to top that one, as it was perfect. This gold master has more compression/limiting. It's LOUDER, but not sonically better in any way.

I am really don't know what is so special in this release apart of the GOLD plated CD and nice cardboard box? Perhaps because it's a collector edition? A friend of mine said that some of the tracks are clipped? far yet I am not able to find it cheaply. Also "ABACAB" was released at the same time with the same collector design. Nice pressings thoughts!
