Came here specifically to comment on "meh" sound quality and saw others confirmed my assessment. Blessed with a high-quality system, I can easily hear production/mixing quality on albums, and this one just doesn't have it. No doubt -- it's better than the picture disc -- but if you're expecting this "Remaster" to be as earphoric as something like a MoFi release, don't get your hopes (or expectations) up.

Going to have to concur with some reviews below that this isn't the best quality pressing, which is surprising because the other Bong Load releases I have are great. I also don't like the packaging, it aims for fancy but comes off as just extraneous (and too long). Still - it's not terrible. The sound is nice enough, just not fantastic.

Bought this directly from Bong Load Europe - couldn't be more pleased.This version is as good as the picture disc is awful (which it most definitely is)

All in all I am not happy with this reissue. The vinyl is noisy, it does not sound very impressive (to be fair the original CD does not as well) and it looks dull and has a lot of marks. Packaging does not look very good as well (somehow cheap to me). I would not buy this release again.

Love the sound and feel of this release. I noticed that the credits above don't mention that this release was re-mastered by Don Tyler (he's done some great records). After I received the album I gave it a basic cleaning, just like all of my records. I have a pretty decent hi-fi setup and the remastering sounds less compressed than the original. The hard cover and packaging is super classy and for sure is worth the money. I really wish the new remastered version was available in a hi-rez digital format, it kills the original. I recently ordered a few more records from bong load and I had no idea of the history of this label until recently. $45 for a hard cover, remastered, double LP, new photos and individually numbered, good deal for me, love it.

This is available again over at Bongload for anyone looking. It's not cheap, but better than these ridiculous flipper prices...

Does anyone know if this includes signed inner? The last image appears to suggest this

I've had 30 year old albums with less clicks and pops, not happy. The high price was paid for the packaging not the pressing. It looked smudged and scratched right out of the gate!!

What's with the insane prices? Plenty of record stores around my house have copies for $45 and 5000 doesn't particularly limited

Anyone have any thoughts on this pressing yet? I'm spinning it right now - sounds pretty good to my ears. Low end is a little bit muddy, but this is easily the best this album has ever sounded to me.
