My copy of this pressing sounds very good. The low end is superb, if I have any complaint it is a little harshness on the upper mids. All four sides are quiet, flat and centered.

I don't care what anyone says - the MFSL pressing is dirt. This even in comparison to a Spotify stream. Physically, yes it's a nice pressing - zero complaints there, quality stuff indeed. But tonally, it's just plain wrong. The opening chords on Golden Age sound like it's being played on an Ovation guitar - which is to say no longer acoustic and organic sounding, but of a plastic and artificial timbre. Also, the sense of space apparent on other versions of this recording is somehow drastically missing.

For those about to questions my playback system, don't bother. It's good enough and I know its nuances and drawbacks well enough. If indeed the current cheaper pressing is of the same provenance I'd give that a miss too and stick with Spotify/ Tidal etc if you've got them. All in all, sounds like it was mastered by someone with compromised high frequency hearing impairments. Avoid. Mine will be up for sale shortly.

Sounds great besides the loud sibilance and issues jumping/skipping on a couple tracks. Very disappointed in anything short of a functional quiet pressing.

No channel issues or dishing with my copy. Clean mastering job as well... And it wasn't even 200 bucks! Very happy.

This album sounds kind of like Beck just doing his folk-country thing at first, you're like, "cool. this is a bit different."
Then you lose someone close to you, have a breakup, or any other number of terrible things..
THIS is where the impact of this record is felt the most. It takes a lot for me to cry but "Lost Cause" can get me crying like a little girl if I'm sad enough. The track "It's All in Your Mind" dates back to 1993-94 (when Beck did his "One Foot in the Grave" record, which is for the most part very similar to this one, and my favorite album of his), but it appears here, rewritten and honestly much better. Just put on "Lonesome Tears" after the love you thought would last forever gets destroyed, and be ready to weep. A lot. This is an extremely emotive record, and my ex hated when I would put it on when I was depressed, as she couldn't handle it. This isn't a radio-friendly "two turntables and a microphone" kind of record. This is a straight-out BROKEN man putting his feelings to tape. The production is amazing, done by Nigel Godrich (who is famous for his work with Radiohead, and he did Beck's album before this one, "Mutations"). The string arrangements really hit you close to home, and are usually what gets me crying. This record is absolutely amazing. 11/10.

With his first single Loser and the associated album Mellow Gold (1994) was the then 24-year-old Beck Hansen at a stroke the Darling pet of alternative rock. Beck was a genuine product of his time, he zapte to your hearts content along four decades to popular music with his own unique mix of rock, hip hop, folk and psychedelia to come up. With the next albums did he know his fans again and again on the wrong leg, although there post a line discover in his grilling: after a ' typical ' Beck album appeared there after all invariably a subdued, folky album. After the exuberant Midnite Vultures (1999) has once again seized the melancholy of Beck. The twelve songs on Sea Change are all serious of show and feature-voice acoustic packages, with or without strings. Although pleasant credentials on the calls to Neil Young and Nick Drake but it is fair to say that the songs on Sea Change not the same emotional impact. You don't often hear mediocrity at Beck but this time is the lurking.

The same, this press has channel issues on side a first two tracks and some on track three.. which is very dissapointed becouse i expected a high quality pressing. Rest of sides plays great . The mastering is great aand the package too. It is a shame that this editions has issues like this. I think it is a pressing plant issue. Some of Sonic Youth repress has the same channel problems.
