This seems to be a very quiet pressing. In order to hear it well it needs to be turned up pretty loud which in turn brings the noise floor up to a noticeable level. As others have mentioned, this is tolerable during louder passages, but quite noticeable during quieter moments and between tracks.

Finally, a worthy vinyl reissue of TPM. This black vinyl pressing eliminates the background hiss found on the purple vinyl version.They got it right this time. Would have been nice to have a gatefold sleeve but that's just quibbling.

Absolutely dead right, it really is a great sounding version. The sleeve and inner booklet are quality too.

Yes it is noisy. Constant hiss that doesn't bother me that much when music plays but it is noticable in quieter parts and between tracks. Couple pops but nothing serious. Rather nice sound quality. Vinyls are flat. Packaging is very simple - no gatefold, basic insert without any photos, graphic liner notes etc (just lyrics). I don't like the idea of messing with cover art - would prefer original artwork (or this funny one with Wain cat). Overall it's fine reissue but previous one ("Swastikas For Noddy") was better done.

Just received the purple vinyl Spheres reissue of TPM and it has pretty bad hiss when played on a higher end turntable. When the music passages are loud it's tolerable but in the quiet sections it's very noticeable as well as during the gaps of silence between tracks.

By comparison, as someone else pointed out, the Swastikas for Noddy reissue is much better and is also on colored vinyl. It must be a pressing plant issue on this one.

The good news is they are going to repress this in black vinyl which I hope resolves the problem.

EDIT: Black vinyl pressing is now available and fixes the problem.

I concur - this is a great pressing of a fantastic album. Snap it up now while it's still reasonably priced.

Can anyone say something about the quality of the remaster 2017? Is it better than the 2002/2003 remaster (CD-version) and what about dynamic range? Many thanks in advance.

I'm happy with the pressing quality of my copy. Sound is a little bassy, but this might be due to my setup.

Anyone have any comments on the pressing quality of this release? Have had mixed results with some other Spheres releases.

I don't find the TPM noise floor and hiss acceptable for colored vinyl. It's really bad when played on my equipment. The colored vinyl reissue of Swatikas for Noddy doesn't have the same flaws and sounds much better.

Got a copy for Christmas, glad to finally have this on vinyl but to my ears and turntable it's another crackly Spheres release which is a real shame. Surprised some are saying this is a good pressing, maybe I've just got unlucky three times in a row with Spheres records.

The Thunder Perfect Mind reissue is really bad/poor in comparison with Swastikas for Noddy reissue. It'is due to pressing plant (GZ Media) .

Got a perfect copy from Cargo UK. I'm very satisfied and can confirm the comments le_singe_vert made below.
Clean vinyls without scuffs also because of quality inner sleeves, great job!

confirmed. my copy sounds quite clean, even at higher volumes on a middle class system. considering the release date and coloring, this is a very good pressing.

Once again, we see that the assessment of a pressing quality depends on many factors (one's ears, expectations, equiment and luck mostly), as I dislike some reissues that have been praised by others for instance, but find this one excellent
The records are thick, flat and not off-centered
Got mine the day before yesterday and gave it a couple of spins already
You can hear some light hissing in the background at higher volume, but I'd say it goes unoticed and is totally acceptable for a colored vinyl
I'm really happy with this reissue, and I am a very picky listener :)

Really? Previous Current 93 reissue ("Swastikas") wasn't that bad ...

This reissue is super noisy and I am no audiophile. Can someone please give this wonderful record the pressing it deserves?
