Mine just arrived and it looks and sounds just gorgeous!

This sounds way better than my US first edition. The music is still quite bright but tamed down a bit. The vocals aren’t clipping anymore like another review said and the music is much more dynamic. Really happy with this reissue.

Cracklings at the beginning of each side, some sporadic clicks throughout the side B, and badly pressed inner grooves (Optimal, what happened to you?).
I don't have any other issue of Tinderbox, so no comparison for me. At my taste, all the glitterishness of its original production is still there : music is punchy, bright and lots of fun to listen to. Though things get tendency to get quite saturated, and I'm very unsure whether it's pressing's issue or they pushed the remastering process too far.

It's too bad they didn't go with the original CD tracklisting and make it a 2XLP set... that has 5 tracks that aren't on the LP version.

Deleted my old post in favor of reviewing this release: it's absolutely beautiful! The packaging is fantastic and everything looks and sounds great. This is a very quiet pressing as I did not notice any surface noise. I had older pressings in which the vocals were constantly clipping and distorting. That is no longer a problem on this reissue. The sound is full and dynamic. I couldn't ask for more in a reissue. Very affordable too!
