Bit of a vinyl newbie but I concur with the other posters - for all the horror stories I have heard about picture discs, this plays excellently, and is an absolute crowd favourite with my flatmates to boot!

I picked this up today because it was recommended by someone on the Linn LP12 facebook that I'm a part of. I have the OG Kitchenware pressing from the UK when first released and like many of us at the time we listened to it then put it on a cassette for regular listen then put the LP away. So my original copy is in great condition and sounds fantastic. So I played this reissue today and it sounded very good. Clear, quiet and engaging. I then played the original pressing and found it to be warmer, less cluttered, not as hot(higher volume) and more musical. That said, if all I could get my hands on was this reissue pressing I would be very content.

Echoing the below - the sound quality on this is not bad at all. Definitely not for the purist as there's some minor but not overwhelming sibilance (most notably on Horsin' Around) and distortion towards the end of each side, but it's otherwise very clear.

The sound quality is pretty impressive! Minimal surface noise, no clicks or pops.

This is the pressing to have - don't bother with the 2019 remasters (IMHO).

I forgot to mention, side 1 also has a soft buzz in the grooves throughout - a pressing fault (thought it was my tracking briefly). I'm not sure about side 2 as I haven't played it (I doubt I ever will).

So, I finally got around to playing this remaster. I got as far as the end of side 1 and I thought to myself "why do I feel utterly depressed? This is one of my favourite ever albums and it hasn't moved me at all - what's wrong with me????". So, I dug out my 1985 original and decided to compare side 1. Thank God! Faith restored, it's not me after all!.
So, what's different? Well to my ears, straight from the off, it sounds clean and "sanitised" - like a lot of remasters. I slightly disagree with the previous reviewer in that Martin McAloon's bass lacks the depth and resonance, compared to my original. The cymbals sound, well, ok I guess. The synths shine MUCH more on my original. In short, the remaster just sounds flat to me (not dissimilar to the MOV reissue that I also unfortunately purchased.
I purchased "Jordan" as part of this reissue compaign and I have to say that I was impressed with that remaster - but Steve McQueen? forget it - I'll still to my faithful original (for good!), To quote from Goodbye Lucille #1 ("there can be no contest"!)
(Oh and the inner sleeve is much sturdier in my original too!)

Wendy Smith sounds like an angel on this album. I couldn't imagine these songs without her in the band.

First, of course, this is a superb album. But what’s important here to review is the pressing. I’m going to leave alone comparing it to my OOP and compare it to the other (2016) pressing currently being pressed.

First, the remaster - it has the hallmarks of a lot of modern remasters: favors volume & bass. I like it but I think that’s a matter of taste. It sounds more “alive” than he 2016. I would say this 19 pressing wins in overall sound. I’ve read some call the 16 flat sounding. I don’t know if it’s that bad (in fact, I like it); but it is fair relative to this pressing.

Now, the actual pressing - I tried 3 copies of this so, while hardly exhaustive, I struck out w 3 different copies. On all of them side A had what I would consider excessive surface noise (after cleaning yada yada yada). Funny enough, side B’s were great. So it can be done, GZ, come on!

Of course, YMMV, and I suspect there are copies out there where side A matches the low noise floor of side B. I just didn’t care to go for a fourth swing when I have other copies.

So...2019 wins on that good ol analog sound. 2016 wins on the quality of the slab of vinyl. So, I’d prefer the latter based on not wanting to grind my teeth in annoyance hearing the noise that at times is overpowering.

With that said, I’ve been generally impressed with the run on PS REs. I have originals of Swoon, Steve McQueen (Two Wheels Good), From Langley Park..., Protest Songs, and Jordan. While I won’t get rid of them, I give them a rest for now bc of these REs.
