      Evil Empire is an iconic album. There are some songs that stand out, my favorite being Vietnow. Some of the weaker songs on Evil Empire do not hit as hard and I often skip to my favorites. Bulls on Parade is such a well known song for good reason. However the contrast of how much I enjoy Bulls on Parade to most of the following songs leaves me underwhelmed. I love seeing other opinions this is just my view.

        I just picked this one up used recently and side B is noticeably lower volume than side A. Anyone else notice this? A sounded fine and B I to crank WAY up.

          My copy's back sleeve says "Made in Mexico" and has several typos (a lot of "Ú"'s where "io"'s should go). Nonetheless, the vinyl sounds phenomenal.

            Very good dynamic sound, plays really great, so I definitely recommend it

              Any input on the quality of this pressing? Since it's a Krieger cut, does this also suffer from lack of low end like the recent pressing, How is the sound?

              Thanks

                Got a Nm- copy for 100 bucks today, just put it on my turntable....wow this pressing smacks! Happy to have it. The bass is so good sounding. Massive sound

                  Hot damn! Couldn't help but let out a laugh when Timmy C's bass kicks in on People of the Sun - crisp, punchy low end that slaps you across the face. As everyone else has said, this one does indeed rip. If you see a copy in decent shape, snag it.

                    Nice press, despite the excessive release agent on the disc surface which required a good wet clean to get off. Beyond that, it was flat and played back quiet. Mastering is ok, although side B had less low-end - presumably rolled off to fit the roughly 26mins of material on the side at a decent cutting level. Side A is only 20mins, and is quite punchy. Decent

                      I just purchased a version that's nearly identical to this one (including matrix/runout), but with a couple notable differences: Sony Music logo on back cover in addition to Epic and Legacy; correct vocals on "Roll Right." It's made in Germany. Sticker on the shrinkwrap says "180 gram limited edition classic LP/High-definition premium virgin vinyl pressing for super fidelity/The nicest thing you can do for your stylus and your ears/The ultimate record: The way music was meant to be heard and great enough for an audiophile." Anyone else have this?

                        Steve Hoffman's remaster is definitely more dynamic and the instrument separation is greater and the more you turn it up it does sparkle with dynamic range. Not as good as AF's remaster of the s/t but it is more open on the high end than the original CD.
