I really don't get the negative reviews here. Absolutely no problems with my copy! No distortion, no loudness war, crystal clear sound and DEFINITELY better than the CD edition! Buy yourself a "good cartridge" and enjoy this amazing pressing. I'm happy to own it!

Bought this one on a whim at Best Buy for full retail price and am very much regretting it. I was really excited to listen to it, because it obviously has so many great songs, but the sound quality is terrible and, at the very least, disappointing. Especially after comparing a lot of the songs to the top notch reissue of Joshua Tree that I also have. The sound on this pressing is mostly dead and muffled with some parts more empty and shrill with no depth to any of it. Like everything is on one flat plain with no dynamics. The worst of it is when there is a lot going on and it all gets equally loud with straight up clipping distortion. It is unpleasant and almost painful to listen to. Plus there is a ton of running noise in the background. Bad mastering for sure. I almost bought the 1990 - 2000 at the same time, but I'm glad that I didn't. This one is good enough to let play quietly in the background, but not for real listening for enjoyment. Buy the superior quality individual albums instead. I'm sorry if it sounds like I'm ranting or being too hard on this album, but we should all expect more from modern releases, especially when they make us pay upwards of $30 to $40 for most of them.
