      I’m sharing the sentiments of most of the comments on here. This pressing is fantastic! Amazing record from A-Z. Buy it!

        I'd rate this pressing a strong 9 out of 10. I really appreciate how they were packaged in poly-lined inner sleeves – it's a great choice since paper sleeves leave scratches. The first record is completely silent, and while the second one is mostly quiet, there are a few clicks and pops in the last few songs on the last side. It's not too bothersome though. Overall, I'd definitely recommend getting this pressing; it's really great.

          Ugh... The sibilance is almost painful to the ears. That and the distortion make this almost unlistenable. Very disappointed in this pressing. Would not recommend.

            Shocking pressing, especially the second disc. blah blah blah blah.

              Why would Geffen use the Plain master? You would think they have the money for a good remaster?

                Just got this on here, and it sounds awesome, except it's noisy. I've heard the rumors, but hoped I'd get a clean one. Oh well. The packaging is top notch though, and the vinyl might be the best looking I've seen. I'll get a new repress and compare soon. 0946/2016

                  I just listened to this after having misplaced it for years. The pressing is quiet, with zero surface noise or ticks. The sound is pretty good, but so did not compare to the cd. I did find the mix to be a bit surprising with what seemed like Elliott and guitar hard panned to the left. I noticed a bit of wow and flutter at the very end of can’t make a sound and on bye, but it really wasn’t distracting at the point in the record.

                    I’m playing this CD through a Sony DVD upscaling player, via optical out to a Taishan FiiO DAC, then into a modded Black Lion Audio Digidesign 003 rack interface/amplifier and out through a pair of 2004 first generation KRK Rockit 5 near field active monitors. With that said, the CD mix and stereo image sound fantastic and silky highs with really good separation and 80/200 Hz punch. When run through the DVD transport and onboard DAC, there is slightly noticeable digital distortion at peak waves, and the compression is overly evident, sounding loud across all instruments and somewhat burying the voice, so I wouldn’t recommend listening without a decent low price DAC, or even better, if you can afford it, a high-end DAC. The album art is fine, but the lyric inlays are written in tiny cursive font and it’s too damn hard to read anything, so that’s a real bummer for a release from a literary-type musical artist. Great songs, all the way through at least song 12, then 13-16 are a little less impressive to me.

                      Have to agree with the rest. It's a great pressing, especially for how plagued the recent reissues have been. Dead silent.

                        This is one of my favorite Elliot Smith albums, and I searched far and wide to find a good copy, which if you know anything about the state of Elliot Smith records, is hard to do. All of the comments led me here, to this European reissue. It’s a great package: two heavy, dead quiet records in poly lined inner sleeves with perfect artwork replication. Despite all that, I’m not as blown away by the sound on this one as most seem to be. It’s good, honestly GREAT compared to most Elliot Smith pressings, but it’s nothing unbelievable to write home about. Just a clean, solid press, which I 100% appreciate but far from one of the best things I’ve ever heard. I do recommend this copy if you love this album as much as I do though!
                        I’d just say, turn up the bass with this one.
