    This is really good. Although 2016 remastered also sounds good but the low-range is really strange.

    German pressing sounds widely and more open than remastered. And definitely not sounding like a bunch of compressed MP3 or brickwalled CD as 2016 pressing imo.

      I also have the 1st UK pressing (FIXH11) and must say this German pressing is pretty much inferior to it, much less detailed and a bit muddy compared to the 1st pressing.

        Can't stop listening to this album, from the Cure maybe the best (according to me)

          Like others said: wonderful pressing, warm and dynamic sound. I got a nm pressing for 4€ and I’m very happy. :)

            This German press sounds really good, with a rich and dynamic sound. Mine is a little bit warped and this makes the last track on side A - Push - sound a bit distorted. Overall, it sounds perfect =)
