Super stoked to have this on vinyl, avoided buying the other pressing due to horror stories. Sounds amazing.

Heads and shoulders better than previous pressings, which I considered to be unlistenable. Very clean pressing that makes the songs sound even more intimate. This is the one to get if you want this album.

Fantastic pressing, Atrophy really shines on this release and in general all the quieter vocals have tons more clarity

I don't have an earlier pressing to compare it to but this sounds great. Also looks beautiful on white.

For the first time as a vinyl junkie we can listen to it on wax seriously. Thanks.

Yes! Confirmed to be way better than the 2009 pressing! :)

Not perfect but certainly a huge improvement over previous pressing. Technically my 2 records are perfect. No off-center holes, scratches or noticeably warped.

I compared it against digital (just regular MP3 320 kpbs through DAC) side by side and it's noticeably more spacious and rich. I think that a lot of emphasis and care were put into bringing Silberman's voice up front as he carries the narrative. Thirteen is breathtaking and even more hauntingly beautiful than anywhere else. There are however some sections of noticeable surface noise, coincidentally on the more distorted parts of the album but I guess that’s left to the ear of the beholder.

All in all a release that satisfies.

Really an improvement in pressing quality and sound. Still not perfect. The center holes of both discs aren't exactly in the center. This album would deserve the perfect treatment and being pressed in a high-standard pressing plant like Record-Industry or RTI.

If you love Hospice, get this pressing because it makes the album feel more special and emotional.
