The music sounds great on my system, no doubt about it. I don't have an original but I have all of their other albums from the '70s and '80s to compare to, and this fits right in. The pressing was ok. A bit of surface noise that doesn't distract the main tracks. I was a bit concerned about the track Drugs for being so silent. No massive pops, but a bunch of quiet ones. I'd give the pressing a B and the music and vinyl itself an A. I'd give it a 4.5 star if I could
