I actually think this reissue sounds pretty great. The drums are punchy as hell and the midrange detail is exceptional. Stunning clarity and dynamics, the only thing is that the vocals sound super quiet throughout the record. It's like they forgot to master the vocals at a decent level. Other than that pretty spectacular sounding reissue. No background noise at all on my copy, plays dead quiet.

Not the best pressing, I have the original but it is warped across the first track so I got this. The old one sounds much better, the guitars and drums sound great. This one has a lot of background noise, with a less lively sound for the guitars and drums. Maybe I just need to clean it.
