Sound quality is pretty good. Unsure what the master was. I'd guess a CD. I've just paid well over the odds. Fingers crossed for some official re-releases.

interestingly I purchased this on ebay sealed seven years ago but it was sold to me without the red hood... Sound quality is not great but having ordered it as a collector's item anyway I feel torn that I don't have the red hood to accompany the 4 g.i.t.d. discs. as far as the record goes it's way cool to have, but don't expect to have your best listen through of Frances The Mute with this...

Bought this 10 years ago, recently pulled it out to take a listen. Something didn't sound right, very flat soundstage and rolled off top end. Not engaging; dull. Compared it to the CD and preferred the CD. I now only have 1 Mars Volta LP left in my collection - Octahedron. Now that is a great sounding pressing.

For an unofficial release this is pretty good. It sounds great and the paper is very solid. The print is a little bit noisy, but was made a pretty good job here. It contains locked groove in all sides, except on side E.

Sounds fantastic! Worth the price for sure, and what a great deal considering how expensive the original pressing was.
