Lovely pressing. I will add photos at some point.
Color is a solid pale 'pepto-bismol' sort of pink.
Really contrasts nicely with the blue tones of the art.

I love the sound of this reissue. The version of Manic Depressive actually improves the song. A must for any Mouse fan.

Great album, excellent pressing. The color is very distinctive in person.

I returned my copy to the shop I bought it from. Generally, the pressing isn't the worst, but it's nothing special. I didn't have a lot of noise like others have stated. The only real problem I came across was side D was pressed off center. Having been pressed at GZ in '14 it doesn't surprise me.

So, I have a copy of this album, and on side 'D' it has the wrong songs. Instead of having Make Everyone Happy, Space Travel is Boring, Edit the Sad Parts, and A Manic Depressive..., it has the songs from side 'D' of Lonesome Crowded West, Polar Opposites, Bankrupt on Selling, Lounge, and Styrofoam Boots. I've never come across something like this before and I was wondering if anybody else noticed this?

I got a misprint. Side D is actually side D from The Lonesome Crowded West.

As the Modest Mouse reissue train keeps rolling, the sound on these pressings continue to be fantastic and this is no exception!

BUT I do have to ask if anyone else has noticed these tiny glitchy type noises all throughout the pressings for both This ia a Long Drive and Lonesome Crowded West. I have a colored version and black version of both and I notice this on every one. It's not overwhelming like a pop and it's not indiscernible like crackling; it is the same exact sound that appears in the background of the sound stage and it is pretty clear in quieter passages. It isn't the biggest deal but it certainly is annoying after a while.
