Was this release remastered for vinyl? A lot of 90s records just used the CD masters for their vinyl releases. My copy sounds great! Very quiet and flat..almost makes me think Rainbo is cleaning up their act?

Man I've got to disagree with rchecka here -- this is not only a fantastic remaster; I'd go so far as to say it is one of the single most impressive sounding records in my collection. But then again, I thought the Superunknown remaster was pretty bad and rchecka liked it so who each their own!

For me, nothing wrong with this reissue. Sounds good on my system. I agree the nuances do stand out more but IMO that's a good thing. Each to their own though.

Unlike the recent Superunknown remastered vinyl reissue this is a terrible remaster. Sometimes it's better to just leave well enough alone rather than try to fix what wasn't really broken in the first place just for the benefit of a hype sticker that says "Remastered." They took this recording and brought all the subtle quieter nuances to the front making it way too loud and fatiguing on the ears. I bought this and sold it as soon at a loss. I'll stick with the CD or buy the original pressing if I can ever find one priced right.

This album sounds amazing! Its my second favorite Soundgarden album and well worth picking up.

Would love to hear from someone how these sound. Have contemplated getting an original many times.
