I'm always nervous with RSD pressings, particularly gimmicky colored vinyl versions for hipster collectors, but I couldn't resist picking this one up as it's a favorite album of mine. I guess I'm a hipster after all? This one sounds quite good. Strong dynamic range, only a touch of surface noise between songs. No complaints from my side - other than it could have used a gatefold sleeve.

I haven't heard the coloured vinyl version but my black vinyl copy sounds excellent. Flat and quiet pressing. Great soundstage and dynamics. I have the original CD and this is far superior.

Very good pressing of this underrated album. The sound is raw and crunchy as you would expect and want, but also clear and detailed.

Got the EU version, and it sounds great - in fact better than my CD version. The sound is dynamic and with soundstage and transparency, and the treble doesn’t fry your ears.

Sounds great except surface noise in the quiet sections, sounds like a white noise maker no pun intended! Vacuum cleaned and still there, I guess that’s just how some things don’t materialize?

Anyone have reviews on this particular pressing? I'm curious if it's better/worse than the RSD colored vinyl

I have the original EU first press to compare, the EU RSD reissue sounds a little more flat but still good. The white vinyl has more "rumble noises" between the tracks, the black first is dead quiet. I prefer the original, although this one looks great on the turntable. Fortunately this reissue is not off center like obviously a lot of the orange debut album-RSD-issue,

Has anyone else had an issue with any of the labels on the records being bubbled up, as if the press was possibly a bit lower in temperature and didn’t fully cause the label to stick to the vinyl?
I don’t really understand it, because I am very familiar with this album, and I feel this pressing came out very well. Great dynamics, clarity, channel separation, etc.

Thanks very much, guys!

Just did an A-B comparison with an original CD. The CD always sounded compressed, brittle and harsh. The vinyl is much more dynamic and a bit more open. You hear the difference clear as day on a good stereo as song as Pong starts; the kick drum has no oomph on the CD, while you feel it on the vinyl.
