Excellent pressing and packaging of a great album. Very clean, quiet where it should be and dynamic throughout. Several songs seem to have much more power to them listening on vinyl than I remember from hearing them before. There is also a beautiful 24-page large booklet stitched into the gatefold with lyrics and graphics.
