I acquired a copy of this to replace the 2018 Music On Vinyl version on red wax. It's in perfect condition, but I'd say that sonically, it's slightly behind the 2018 reissue. The low end is almost as good, but not; and there seems to be a slight inner groove distortion on the A&M. The Music On Vinyl pressing is different, because the runouts are noticeably bigger on it. The cover art on the original, however is way better than the reissue, which is pixelated on the cover and is obviously reproduced on the back, with fonts that don't match and art that looks like it was re-created as best as it could be. Everything the reissue has otherwise is present on the original, except the heavier red vinyl and the photo insert. The verbiage from that insert is instead on the back cover. The A&M version seems even more rare than the 2500 copies made for the MOV reissue. It never appears for sale online or in any store I've been to.

Does anyone notice a big drop in volume in the middle of Sunset? It's where it goes into a quiter passage but the difference seems a bit too drastic. Just wondered if it is supposed to be there or mine is somehow faulty?

Just A/B'd this reissue against my NM original. The reissue has the treble and bass pushed, which isn't necessarily bad, but sounds a fair amount more forward than the original. Overall, the reissue sounds more lively than the original, although to my ears is a bit too "hot" in places.

I only have the original 1991 Cd to compare to, but to me this is a nice pressing. Completely noise-free, and some tracks have gained a bit of depth. the bass in "mustang" has a bit more presence to my ears, as does the drums on "sunset".

AVOID!! Stick to the very affordable 1st press or 2nd press limited to 500 from 2011. Both of them sounds far better after doing a shootout

Just received mine in the mail, and I can attest that this pressing sounds mighty damn good to these ears.

Have been listening to the digital download and a 2008 reissue of the CD for years now. This is the best-sounding of the lot.

My first impression seeing it was that the artwork was a horrible scan: very pixelated, maybe blown up from the CD or something. But now trying to compare to scans of other vinyl issues, I'm wondering if maybe that is just how it always looked. Perhaps its just a slight exacerbation of what was already kinda rough. Disc sounds great to me. Same as MOV's issues of Mezcal Head, Catherine Wheel, etc., it sounds pretty clear and detailed. Punchy on the bottom end, lots of midrange clarity, a nice bite to all the guitars, bass guitar included. Probably taken from hi-res digital, like most of the other MOV titles, but I honestly don't mind that so much as long as it sounds as good as this.

Can anyone who owns this pressing comment on how it sounds? I’ve had hit or miss experiences with MoV.

Great album. But why did A&M use a fake lowercase SPARRS code on this edition, rather than the standard capitol "ADD" standard used by all other major labels during this time?
