Horrible congested mix, zero dynamic range - very odd given that most of the songs have been decently remastered by RS for their home albums.

This compilation is just shit really.

I probably could've picked a better tracklist, however, sound quality is excellent. Super quiet, thick bass that's not overpowering, clean highs. Overall a very good pressing.

Vinyl is flat and silent but highly diverging sound quality. "Lovesong" i.e. is fantastic with very clear vocals, best version I ever heard on vinyl. Older tracks like "Boys don't cry" or "A forest" are significantly weaker. In summary a good pressing however.

Excellent pressing; clean, warm, wide and a lovely bass. Both the jacket and the inner sleves are made of quality cardboard.
