This one sounds hallow. Not very dynamic at all. Earlier pressing capture a much fuller, warmer and rich sound. The artist are a little behind the music. Very compressed. Surprisingly, the CD even has a richer sound.

I bought this a couple months ago - a bit disappointed to find out that the bonus download is only .mp3 format. For something marketed as 'High Quality/Fidelity' audio, I assumed the download would be the same quality as on the blu-ray.

Was the download always .mp3? Or was there a HQ download available for a limited time that I was too late (5 years) for?

The pressing is really good. No big problems and well done. But I listened to 2 copies and found the same "issue" on the same spot on otherwise pretty flawless pressings and would like to know if others have it:

On "Ideas as Opiates" about 2:25 in - when the lyrics "Belief is our relief/We don't care" end in that jarring plucked string arpeggio leading into the saxophone part - there is also some surface noise/static (kind of sound you might get with non-fill) right on top of that plucked string part (right after the word "care"). It almost blends in because that part is kind of meant (I think) to be jarring and a bit cacophonous. However, it is definitely in the pressing.

Had it on 2 copies, so it might be on the plates? Anyone else?

How can this be an RSD release and exclusive to the Hurting box set preorders? It can only be one or the other, surely? I think that as there is already an entry for the box set that this 7" was part of then this shouldn't have its own separate entry...

The US label incorrectly lists "Pale Shelter" as being 5:24. It's actually 4:24 and the same as the UK counterpart.
