      Great album and a nice, deep, and flawless pressing. The bass sounds especially good.

        great sounding tape, very dynamic like all tapes from the 90s. great album too

        5/5
        • AppleBlossome88's avatar
          Sounds brilliant !
          Yes, I agree with comments below it is lacking a bit of a bass.
          But the sound is very detailed, bright and punchy.
          Anyway its Mofi, so damn good !

            Great pressing, just like all UK Pixies reissues 4AD published in 2000s. Hard to judge how these albums sound on vinyl - back then everyone owned them on tapes ;) Sounds a little thin, almost CD-like but not in a bad way. Very uniquely Pixies!

              +1 for the .Richard. comment.

              Unfortunately no mention of either Sterling or RKS in the dead wax. Instead there is etched “LOUD” and “JONZ”.

              The first Google hit for “JONZ LOUD” suggests that it’s mastered by John Dent aka Loud Mastering based in London: https://www.discogs.com/label/251749-Loud-Mastering. Apparently he was a well respected engineer with a huge track record. According to the Loud Mastering web site the man passed away late 2017.

              Perhaps the US version is Sterling’s and the European version is by John Dent?

              I’m disappointed as I had hoped to buy Sterling’s Ryan Smith version. The JONZ version isn’t bad but not much of an improvement over the original 4AD that I have. So I’m still looking for that RKS version.

              This record came to me through no fault of the seller as it looks exactly like this release. Same 30th anniversary hype sticker and translucent red vinyl. As these records are typically sold sealed your seller can’t tell you which version you’re going to get.

              Somebody should add the JONZ/LOUD version to the IDs section of this release or create a new release for it.

                I doubt anyone of the previous commenters have compared any different versions of this album at all. I happen to have the original US press and this Club Edition. And there is little difference. She Is Weird might sound a little better on this version but that’s about it. Both versions have that cold metallic sound. As far as I’m concerned I haven’t heard an original pressing of this album that sounds good. If you want a good version of this album it’s the most recent red vinyl anniversary reissue cut by Ryan Smith of Sterling Sound.

                  Mine doesn’t really have any of the pops others have noticed, but the center hole is punched a little too big, which is classified as a defect, so in-between songs I do hear some light swooshing from the tone arm swaying

                    I've learned from reading the comments about Bossanova that whatever pressing you have is truly the best pressing.

                        Encountering with the Pixies' works can begin with the album Bossanova! Its guitar riffing and dark melodies titillate the fancy, inviting a listener to an alternative rock performance. No need to rate the songs as chart hits because all of them are known to form a single whole. Amidst the hustle and bustle, look at the final track Havalina to highlight this luxury disc. For a better result, one can turn your amplifier on medium!
