I can't speak about any of the other original presses. But this sounds exactly as it should in my opinion. Perhaps not better than the original CD version (haven't compared them yet) but at least 10x better than the remaster I have.

That release sounds really good.
Can anyone confirm misprint: side 4 label instead of side 2 ( side 4 lable twice )?

Why does Relapse Records not understand what a dedicated vinyl mastering is? Well to be fair I'm sure they do, they just don't care about sound quality seeing as how every piece of vinyl I have from them just sounds like it's CD counterpart.

I have an original pressing of this album from 2002 and I always thought that it sounded subpar.
So I just took a chance on this 45rpm remix.

I can't speak to the dynamic range numbers but it does sound very pleasing to spin. It really doesn't sound different but very pleasing.

I recommend it.

Would pick this up if it weren't for the horrendous remastering job. The album had a much praised, uniquely produced, rustique and monolithic sound which is gone with this remaster. Now it just sounds like any generically produced, modern metal release. Clearly separated instruments and tampered EQ. I pity anyone whose first listen to this album was with the remaster.

Not a great sounding pressing if I'm honest. It sounds as distorted as the CD. A wasted opportunity on the part of the label Relapse records.
