I have serious sibilance issues on this pressing, which is a drag because I love this album (purchased it in 2015). No such problems with the cd or any other records in my collection. I'm going to try another pressing, see how it sounds.

Ltd to 2000 copies in 2009, yet my local record shop had 4 new sealed copies in last week (2016). i guess it's been repressed recently?
