Pretty damn good pressing. Only gripe is the print quality on the sleeve is complete ass. Type looks good, but the band's faces are blurry and wrought with scan lines.

My pressing info is identical, except it has “Printed in Canada” on the spine. I’m guessing listing should read both USA and Canada.

This pressing is dead quiet I would recommend to anyone that loves this album!

My copy came with absolutely no lint on the vinyl. Of the few dozen records I've gotten new this is the only time that has happened.

The notes say there should be a lyric sheet inside, but I didn't seem to get one in my brand new sealed copy! meh, not that bothered... ok I'm a little bothered but I'll live.
Awesome album though, high quality vinyl from a high quality band, what more could you ask for.... apart from a lyric sheet.

My copy of this release is on flat, dead-quiet vinyl. The soundstage is huge with awesome separation. These guys take their studio time seriously and this mix is beyond good. Strong at all frequencies, natural tones and in your face vocals. Great high frequency detail but still warm overall. This album is so good and this release is its equal. Highly recommended.

Do any of you cool dudes know if there is a EU press of this by Optimal (usually) around the same time? Or is there just this US press from 2006

Dynamic sound that does the album justice, plus the wax is dead quiet and flat. I can't fault it for anything.

Would anyone who has heard this version vs. the original care to comment on the effect of the "Remastering" on this pressing? I'd be much obliged for any comments on this "remastering".
