Can anyone comment on the SQ of this? Is it simply a repress of the 2008 release? Also, would someone post pics of the labels. Thanks

This is the definitive pressing and package that includes a beautiful book with pictures and lyrics along with a cardboard circular ufo like cutout and printed card stock insert. By far the one to own!! And the pressing sounds fantastic too.

To my ears, this pressing has a lot of the low end that the more recent reissues seem to lack.

This club pressing sounds fantastic! Puts the MoFi version to shame, which makes sense, cuz the original tapes had been lost and then found in a watehouse in LA. Or so I’ve heard...

Agree that it is a bass shy mastering, but it is very bright and enjoyable to the ear, as expected from mo fi.

Great release. Heavy LP, thick sleeves & dead quiet record.
This pressing sounds amazing to me even though Pixies have never been a 'hi-fi' band in the 1st place.

I have a copy of this album and the "Special Limited Edition" section number is blank. Is this album supposed to be numbered?

Found this remaster to be a bit bright & bass shy. According to a convo w/ MOFI, they stated the condition/degridation of the orig master tape was responsible and trying to recover the missing frequencies via EQ would have affected other areas of the record. Oh well.. :(
