Dead quiet vinyl, fantastic soundstage and dynamics. Of the Cars MoFi pressings I own so far (Candy-O, Shake it Up, and Heartbeat City) this takes the cake.

Typical dead quiet vinyl from MOFI. I am hearing a ton of sibilance on this one to the point that it's impossible not to notice it. The dynamics and soundstage are good. Compared to my OG press, it is very similar, with the OG press a bit warmer and brighter. OG press has more noticable clicks & pops of course. If you can get a clean OG press for $5-$10, I would suggest that over this pressing at $40.

This is the version to get, definitely! Miles better than the disappointing Audio Fidelity version.

Very special master of this classic album. I am not a fan of crossfades or minimal gaps between songs (in most cases), as it usually means we are getting a 2nd or 3rd generation of the master mixdown tape.
In this case, Hoffman did NOT use the typical dreaded analog "Production Master" (which is usually 2nd or 3rd generation), and opted to use the individual ORIGINAL stereo mixdown masters for each song, essentially re-assembling the album from 1st generation tapes.

Now if he could just remaster all the Stevie Wonder albums and give them the same treatment (get rid of those awful crossfades), I would be ecstatic!

Sure, Hoffman COULD have digitally re-created those short crossfades, but who needs them? I would much rather have the FULL mix than a truncated or faded version of it.

Not going to lie, I actually really miss the red border. I get David Robinson didn't particularly like the red cover, but I think it made the album what it is to me.

Bought a copy NM for $7 and thoroughly pleased. With "Heartbeat City", the band decided to switch producers from Roy Thomas Baker to Robert John "Mutt" Lange -- and to great effect: the production is fantastic with just the right emphasis on all sonic elements from the vocals, instruments and sonic treatments. Combines all the best elements of the Cars' music: killer hooks and riffs and lyrics you can sing along with. I like some the darker tone of some of the songs off their earlier LPs, but along with the debut this is the record most people associate with the band -- they had several top-10 hits off this album and you coudn't escape the videos on MTV either. Listening to this is a great primer in '80s pop-rock and songcraft. A classic.

U.S. edition is pressed on 180 Gram black vinyl. Nice quality and quiet pressing. The 2018 outer jacket is the white cover shown on both front and back. It has nice poly sleeves plus the original inner cover art x 2. I found mine at Zia Records (Tempe) for $23.99 . This is easily their best studio album ever.
