I played this today for the first time in a long time. I had forgotten how good some of these songs are! As for the sound quality, the low end is nice and deep without being too bloated, and the drums are pretty punchy. Everything sits well in the mix though it is a little crushed. ("Gold On The Ceiling" sounds particularly good!) The vocals are clear with good space around them, and the keyboard and organ elements fill in nicely. However, the higher frequencies, particularly on the guitars, are a little harsh. When I crank it on more layered songs like "Dead And Gone" or the loud part of "Little Black Submarines," it can be a tad fatiguing. Cymbals are washed out and a little thin sounding, and the whole thing feels cold. I'm guessing this is all a result of it being a digital recording but I could be wrong. I do think it sounds better and more natural than the CD & streaming versions. It has more presence and "liveliness" and, to my ears, sounds a little less compressed. It's worth picking up this 45 RPM version if you don't have a vinyl copy, but don't expect a sonic miracle.

Overall grade: B+

The sound quality on this to me is mediocre like some others have said. Some songs sound good to me like Little Black Submarines and Sister, while Gold on the Ceiling doesn't sound that great. Despite this having a lot of big hits on it this probably one of my least favorite albums of theirs.

I had to return the first copy since it was very warped. The replacement is a good record overall. Not the greatest, but it is a good sounding record.

I recently ordered this album from Nonesuch Records and my package did not include the CD within the gate fold. Not really a problem for me as I was more interested in the vinyl than the CD, but posting this in case anyone else receives the same on their order.

Just a warning; this pressing is pretty terrible. I just A-Bed it against the digital recording and the stereo image is much smaller, really muddy bass output (weird that more subsonics have been added to a vinyl pressing: it usually the opposite) and very quiet - need to turn it up much more than my other records, bringing up the noise floor. A real shame.

This is a great album. I feel like they haven't lost anything yet. Brothers, Attack and Release and Thickfreakness are better.

Stop complaining Mind Eraser, Money Maker and Gold On The Ceiling are more than terrific!

I've bought two different versions (Std. Ed. and 2xLP) and both have been warped pretty bad.
Anyone else have this problem?

Gone a bit poppy, clap, clap clap, clap, clap clap, and I'm not not feeling it, this is a long way from where they started, and more than a little boring. Has anyone else noticed the similarity between "Little Black Submarines" and "Stairway to Heaven"?
