I don't know if i got lucky or they recently did another run of these but my copy sounds fantastic. It's mixed differently to the CD but i like this mix just as much

I've listened to the CD version only, until I bought this remaster. The CD is clear and vocals stand out in the mix. The vocals are lost in the mix on the vinyl remaster. The CD lacks warmth. The vinyl does warm up, but what can you expect from a digital record. The vinyl sounds better cranked up than the CD. If you could synchronize the record and the CD, and play them at the same time, you would have a great mix. I wasn't pleased with this record, but I do play it a lot. I guess it's growing on me..

I'm pretty happy with the sound on this. It's not a masterful recording to begin with. Decent, but originally pretty low-budget. I think this mix does it justice. Bass and drums are pretty tight. I don't have an issue with the vocals as some here have. The vinyl is nice and quiet. Given the price, this one's a pretty good value.

This "new stereo mix" is not for me. I've been listening to this album since it came out on cassette and CD and the original mix is so much clearer. The new mix seems to have a lot more hard panning and the vocals seem to get drowned a lot and have more effects on them. Everyone hates Plain Records vinyl reissues but I think that pressing sounds way better than this. This remix is going straight to the sell pile.

This version sounds huge. Bass and drums are punchy, as they should be. Also, it's very, very cheap on Amazon.

Picked up a copy this week. I'd been looking out for a yellow vinyl version but can't justify the price hike for the colour. Went for the cheaper black vinyl instead and happy to say that the sound is very good. Side A was always my favorite on the cd but Side B comes alive here. The combination of Those Damned Blue-Collar Tweekers followed by Fish On just sound great. Highly recommended.

I think this album sounds wonderful. Punchy, dynamic, with good separation. I say A+ on the remaster, A+ on 200g pressing. This album is a tad bit quiet, sounds flat at low volumes. But when it is cranked, it sounds amazing. Especially Tweekers. One of the better sounding LPs in my collection, I'd say. Y'all won't be disappointed for $20.
