Better than the original pressing if only because it's quieter. Both the OG press of Yoshimi and The Soft Bulletin on PIAS have a lot of surface noise. The only other difference is that the sleeve is slightly different from the original.

This really is a fantastic version of this LP. It's one of my favorite records, and I've owned several versions over the years. This is, in my opinion, the one to have. It's a quiet and flat pressing that sounds great. Also, the version of Buggin' on this pressing sounds to be a different mix to me.
