Very disappointing sound quality. Too compressed, very undefined. Quite comparable to the sound quality of the Entreat Plus US release.

Although the pressing plant seems at best amateuristic (I had to return the first copy I bought because one record was missing, do not buy this sealed!), I do not recognise this as just an analogue WAV-file. Sound is fine, and gives me the sensation I had when I was younger. Indeed, there was a lot of noise and even skips on the record, but a run on the good ol' Okki Nokki solved that problem. So it seems the biggest problem is a dirty pressing procedure.

Later US pressings of this should not have the non-fill that plagued the original pressings. You should contact Rhino if you have issues with your pressing.

Mine looks and sounds nice. It is unfortunate though that it turned to 1s and 0s before pressing on this nice 180g piece of wax. Im frustrated with Rob but.. I will always love you

When I pulled each of the discs out of their sleeves, there was a white residue or powder across sides B and D. It is easily cleaned using a gentle vinyl brush. Overall the sound is pretty good, nothing revelatory, but I'm glad I got a copy.

Bought the vinyl virtually the day of release sadly it sounded as though the record was already 10 years old crackle and pop all the way through!! The recording mix is also quite rough and flat and doesn't do the songs justice. The previous release (Kiss Me) sounds fantastic and ear splitting loud even though the discs are super thin.

honestly: such a great album, BUT: such a bad press quality.
