Original vs repress :

I first bought the repress, wasn't happy with sound quality. Then bought the original release from 2001 to compare. I was really disappointed with the sound again. The original unfortunately sounds exactly like the youtube videos, back ground noise, too much tape hiss, muddy sound. I was hopping that it was a bad Youtube upload before i bought the original but the vinyl (VG+) actually sounded the same. Great music, really poor mixing/mastering compare to the album Butterfly Effect.

DDS actually did a good job with the remastering, especially if the original source is vinyl. They obviously did some EQing, removing unwanted frequencies/noise, the kind of thing that you start doing during the mixing, on separate elements of a track. The fact that it's done on an already mastered track is that you end up by loosing interesting tones, you have less flexibility basically. Therefore the repress doesn't sound great but it's definitely not worse than the original, it's a bit clearer, less muddy.

I ended up by selling the original, and kept the repress which isn't that bad at the end...
(Here's a picture that i uploaded with both version together.)

Why would it have been remastered from vinyl as opposed to just pressed again from the master?

So this was ripped off a vinyl copy, with present audible artefacts, including some messed up panning here and there, and then pressed again on vinyl. Figure out yourself how much such a remaster is worth.

FYI - it is, of course, the same rip that's sold as digi on boomkat and junodownload. You can literally hear the needle being put on vinyl at the beginning of The Red Line.

whats the story here? did the repress come and go already?! If thats the case...Honestly i really can't fathom the thinking behind limiting quantities of long out of stock represses - especially those with such popular demand. Surely its about getting the music out to new audiences and those who genuinely appreciate the music but cant afford to be victims of discogs profiteering...

This won't have reached other record stores yet, just be on the lookout at your local shop.

EDIT 5th November: This will be repressed. Don't buy off the sellers speculating on this record.
