Sounds a lot better than the MOV version, which is seriously lacking dynamic range in comparison.

I had the MOVLP version, which sounded punchy AF. Just opened this one and it's a fvcking banger. Crystal clear, wide separation, punchy... In other words: the ultimate pressing for this record hands down.

I pulled this out of the record bin @ Waterloo records in 2005 after an Acoustic QOTSA show, and then i bumped into Josh outside and I asked him to sign the cover. He signed his name and 'Wolf'. lol

Excellent sounding record. I've always thought QOTSA's music sounded compressed when I heard a CD or digital files. This vinyl release totally opens things up and creates nice space between the instruments. Definition and clarity are above average and the soundstage is big. Drums are punchy and guitar tone is dynamic. The music is hard driving and intense. Love listening to this band on vinyl, it's just a nice thick sound. Pressing is quality, flat centered and only some minor clicks and pops. Overall worth it to pick up an original copy of this. I think my local record store dude must have copped one of these from the warehouse find sale because I found a sealed copy today for a more than reasonable price. Not too long ago, a sealed copy would cost you $125. That was still a little to steep for me. When I saw the copy I got today, sealed, for $50, I bought it in a flash. IMO, if you could find this record sealed for under $100, that's a deal.

If you scored one of these from the online find just to flip it, I wish only the worst for you.


October 13, 2018
anyone happen to know how many of these were pressed?

The addition of 'Infinity', 'Like a Drug' and 'Precious and Grace' on the second half of the LP makes this a total different album experience from the Compact Disc release.

Excellent sound quality, insanely good master, sounds much better than the digital or cd versions. Not to mention the wicked awesome album art on this version. All in all, worth the seventy bucks I paid for an unopened copy.
