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...

Side 1:
24 has a lot of background noise and the vocal is ridiculously way way to loud compared to the other instruments.

Medicine Bottle sounds much better. But not as good as it does on Spotify. I know, right?

Japanese to English sounds better again, but suffers from the "schish" distortion issue on the vocal (diCTIOnary, englISH etc.).

Side 2:
Down Colorful Hill sounds good to me.

Lord Kill the Pain: The vocal sounds good. Cant really hear the drums so well. The guitars sound weird, as if two guitar parts from different songs as mashed together.

Michael: The "schish" voacal distortion is back.

Overall, it sounds almost as if each song was mastered by a different person/ audio student!

Take everything I say with a grain of salt as I'm not trained in sound or music. This is just what I am hearing.

Very noisy pressing. So many reissues are like this nowadays, it's a shame.

Side 1 is very noisy.
Side 2 is unlistenable. So much distortion.

Horrible pressing.

Is it only me, or every copy has a pressing defect?
There is a lot of noise during the first ca 30 sec of '24', especially when Mark sings , and also some noise when he sings 'Japanese to English'.
