I have the same matrix codes as Variant 1 here except my C side code is: B923806-02 C2 HL.
Bought it on Amazon in 2009.
I agree the sound is awful and over compressed. I assume this might be a general issue with this recording though...

Man... this is awful. Bought it for my wife because she loves RHCP. Sounds no different than hearing these over-compressed versions on Sirius-XM. What a waste of 180g vinyl

Absolutely one of the worst pressings in my collection, atrocious, can't describe how bad it sounds. Sibilance and distortion throughout the disc, compressed, total piece of junk.

Well, that's sounds not so bad. If you got this pressing try to play with Bass and Treble. Because with default tune its sounds awful. There's no drums and poor Flea's bass sound. But at the same time treble is too high, especially on vocals. So, for decent sound you want to up the bass and treble a little bit (because of the drums, specifically because of hi-hat).
In that case it's sounds normall, at least for me. But there's a still poor dynamics and detailness.
I'm going to try to find 2012 US release for comparison.

This most certainly is a terrible pressing. I bought it off Amazon thinking I was getting the 2012 limited edition. Returning it pronto.

I've found that my brand new copy is skipping. After checking Google, there are plenty of people on Reddit with the same issue. Very unfortunate, and makes it unplayable - perhaps a bad batch, but be warned.

Just to further the topic, I have a copy of this, purchased new a couple years back from a record store- sound quality is terrible. I pull it out every once in a while to listen to, and immediately remember why I never listen all the way through. As others have stated, a real compressed sound, clipping, poor sound quality all around.

My copy doesn't have the rings on the center labels neither the runout matches any of the ones given here, the sound is quite good, dunno what's the deal with some people here.

i don’t understand those who hear a compressed version. this one is clearly audiophile.

Does a different version of this exist? I have one that is a EU pressing (catalog number is the same as EU presses but it just has the small centre ring as for example the 2012 Repress does. At the same time that one just has a US copy available.
