I just got the repress of 2012, USA version of the The Smashing Pumpkins ‎– Mellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness 4x LP Vinyl Reissue.
https://www.discogs.com/release/4082874

I got it off ebay; initially told it was the EU/UK version. Ah, well ..... As all have said, beautiful vinyl, nice packaging. For Zero, i do her the IGD that many others have fedback about.
However, it is ONLY in the penultimate 30 seconds, when Billy Corgan is screaming his vocals - that i hear the IGD / distortion bit. The last part of the song, the last line when he sings the line "She's my one and only" , that sounds Perfect, with NO IGD ! ... It is my understanding that, if there is IGD, it should get worse closer to the label the stylus goes, or remains the same, not get better. So, how come the vocals in the last line - sang 'acapella' with no backing guitars - sounds great with no distortion, whereas the earlier vocals are distorted ? is it because of the loud guitars affecting the vocals and hence the grooves ? or, because it is mastered 'hot'/'loud' ?
Does that make sense ?
And, yes - my TT and cartridge and stylus are properly aligned and tuned, etc. - other records with minimal dead wax have no issues.
Sorry , i know my description is not very technical ! . Thanks in Advance.

Received this from a seller who mistook it for a '98 repress; I was bummed initially, but this is probably one of the best unofficial pressings out there. It's up there w/ my u/o copy of "Songs for the Deaf!" The sound could very well be hit or miss, but other than side D being slightly poppy, I think it sounds marvelous! Unsure of the source, but it's surprisingly lush & dynamic. Fitting 3 discs into a double gatefold sleeve is a bit awkward (whole release issue?), but the packaging is exceptionally convincing if it weren't for the lack of numbers/white space in corner; even the booklet appears to be first-rate. If you come across this for a reasonable price, don't pass it up!

I received my box set today. It has the following Matrix:

Runout (Variant 1 Side A): Disc1:785531-A3(handwritten) A+R Dallas -SPGII (handwritten) P.USA (stamped) -26098-(stamped)
Matrix / Runout (Variant 1 Side B): Disc1:785531-B3(handwritten) P.USA (stamped) -26098-(stamped)
Matrix / Runout (Variant 1 Side C): Disc2:785531-C2(handwritten) P.USA (stamped) -26099-(stamped)
Matrix / Runout (Variant 1 Side D): Disc2:785531-D1(handwritten) P.USA (stamped) -26099-(stamped)
Matrix / Runout (Variant 1 Side E): Disc3:785531-E2(handwritten) P.USA (stamped) -26101-(stamped)
Matrix / Runout (Variant 1 Side F): Disc3:785531-F2(handwritten) P.USA (stamped) -26101-(stamped)
Matrix / Runout (Variant 1 Side G): Disc4:785531-G2(handwritten) P.USA (stamped) -26102-(stamped)
Matrix / Runout (Variant 1 Side H): Disc4:785531-H2(handwritten) P.USA (stamped) -26102-(stamped)

This seems to match the variant 1 from the 2014 release but what does that mean.

Good News is I'm on disc 2 and sounds great so far. To clarify by great I mean sounds like it should or as I remember from the Digital copy.
Anybody else have this going on.?
thanks

Side A,B,D (noise) Side C, E and F, (perfect sound) have you the same problem ?....... this edition is interesting because there are Twoo inedit songs (not in the official reissue). I am happy because on the reissue, there is not the official cover... ¨Normal price for this bootleg (55 euros)

So, I bought this because I'm not going to fork out $300-500. I think it sounds good. I think the original CD sounded bigger, thicker, and had more dynamic. The vinyl itself is nice and pretty clean. But the mastering is clearly digital and definitely is colder than the original mastering job. My impression listening to it is that the engineer was pushing track pronouncement but lost some of the muck that made the original piles of big muffs sound awesome. So the separation of instruments is nice, but you're losing something. Just my two cents.

The reality is, format/media aside, original masters are going to sound better 95% of the time because they were conceived when the album itself was conceived and therefore be more in line with the sound the artist was going for when they made the music. The mastering tech matches the engineering and mixing tech. It's called production unity, and it's the most important element of judging the assembly of an album in my opinion.

I own the repress of 2012
The packaging is top and the sound is there and there ...
If anyone can tell me the difference between the Repress USA and the Europe?
Because Matrix numbers are the same
