It needs a cleaning at least but sound is amazing ! I advice to use a different inner sleeve to save it...

Does anyone know if the original sounds better than the 2015 reissue?

"I have a sneaking suspicion that the inner sleeve contributed to the noisiness of these."

100%, my copy was covered in paper particles. Lucky I saw them before I played, as after cleaning it sounded absolutely perfect.

I was expecting the worst and nothing what I expected. This reissue sounds amazing and the pressing is nice and quiet. well done 4AD. perhaps this is a later pressing of the 2015 reissue plates.

An under appreciated gem from the early 90's. amazing song writing. This CD version is the definitive one to get IMHO, as the original LP pressing has been plagued with noise issues from what I've heard.

Time stretch the already slow tempo and prepare for your head to enter spaces you thought could never happen to you.

Great Reissue, sounds GREAT.
People say it's very noisy, mine is extremely quiet.

Opened sealed copy, hits of distortion and noise throughout. Also agree with other reviewers; the mixes sound off when compared to my memories of the CD. Unfortunate.

I have a sneaking suspicion that the inner sleeve contributed to the noisiness of these. When I took the record out it just felt grainy. The end of Down Colorful Hill sounded like shit, and I noticed a little flick of paper at the needle. I am going to clean this and see if that improves the sound...
