Notes

Vinyl editions:
The initial pressing identifiable by "FSV" and Rays in the runout denoting it was pressed by First Sound and Vision who closed early in 2000 mastered by Ray Staff and the catalog number 490 864-1. Production continued with Optimal Media Production the same year but they omitted the catalog number using "000 000-0" instead. The Optimal Media Production version was repressed at least once with a different mastering engineer responsible for side B. Around 2008 GZ Digital Media produced a facsimile of the initial pressing using the catalog number 490 864-1, but instead of having limited edition stickers and parental stickers affixed, they were actually printed as part of the artwork.

      This is a stellar pressing. Whenever I second guess myself and think my setup is rubbish, I put this on and it’s all good again.

      Get it.

        Even for a 1 LP, this sounds excellent. I like the original packaging and poly lined sleeve too.

          My BG cut copy had a made in Germany sticker on the back of the cellophane.

            The bass is huge on this album, and everything else sounds great too. Listened A/B with the digital, this is superior. Bonus songs are worthy inclusions.

            Highly recommend.

              Terrible sounding pressing, very quiet and no punch at all. It is as if you are listening to it while wearing a set of loosely inserted ear plugs.

              I don't think it has been on the platter for 8 or 9 years. The only reason I still have it is because they are one of my favourite bands, if not it would have been used for skeet shooting years ago.

                Mine came perfectly flat and has antistatic sleeves. First time hearing this album on vinyl but this one sounds great. Much better than my og cd version

                  I recently bought a sealed edition which is very similar to this one visually (the sleeve, insert, artwork, hype sticker, I can’t spot any differences) but:
                  1) the vinyl itself has totally different matrix 010701008-A-2 and 010701008-B-2 etched
                  2) there is an additional small sticker on the back of the shrink which says MANUFACTURED IN POLAND
                  Does anybody know if it’s still this 2019 EU edition or something new?

                    Excellent pressing with great sound. Sounds better than my digital download of the Deluxe version of this album. I expect nothing else from BG and Pallas. Buy this album!!!

                      I just picked this up. Sounds fantastic to me. Flat, clean, good sound stage. No complaints.

                        Pressing - 5/5
                        Exactly what you usually expect from a Pallas pressing. Nice and heavy, even, flat, and perfectly center. Plus, came very clean right out of the package and no surface noise at all. A+ all around.

                        Mastering - 4/5
                        In isolation, this sounds really good. Great soundstage and nice, crisp dynamics. But, honestly, it pales in comparison to the original. I’m not an “original press is always best” kind of person, but the difference between the two is significant. Maybe it’s just that Bernie was given a different source. This sounds great, but the original is demo-worthy.

                        Packaging - 4/5
                        Nice to have the original art but outside of that, nothing super special. Came in a poly lined sleeve which is a plus.

                        Overall - 4/5
                        Solid copies of the original press are still affordable, so I’d say go with that one. But, if you prefer new, or want the original artwork, this one is solid. I own both, because I love this album and my original press has a persistent skip in one spot, so this is my “playing” copy and that one is my “special occasion” copy.
