Pressing is nice and clear. I must admit, I do like the original a bit more (I enjoyed the sound they were going for). But, this pressing is probably more appealing to the masses (you should def pick this up)

Best I have ever heard this album sound. I always found the original to be muddy sounding and lacking dynamics. No such problems on this remaster.

Agree with others. Nice sounding reissue. Full, bold sound, punchy drums and tight bass.Haven't heard an original but this sounds excellent. Quality pressing too, quiet and flat. A couple of scuffs and small hairlines on the vinyl surface from the generic RTI inner bag but nothing horrendous. $20 brand new too, good sonics, packaging and pressing for a more than fair deal. Reccomended 9/10.

Yeah, Craft Recordings really did a bang up job with this. This album has never sounded better.

This sounds so awesome! The vocals have brought up. Knew I was missing something.


November 5, 2019
i no longer have an original LP to compare it to, but this sounds pretty damn good.

Why are the labels listed as C & D? The deluxe versions side C & D are the remixes. These seem like standard version but with the C & D listing. Anyone know why?


November 4, 2019
Anyone else's copies labeled as C & D sides? As if they just took the 2nd LP from the deluxe version and thew it in a different jacket.

Purchased for $22 at my local record store. Remastered by Greg Calbi. My copy is dead
quiet and sounds great (I don't have an original to compare it to). A nice option for those of us who don't want to shell out $100 or more for an original copy. Would recommend.
