Good 80s rock record from this Scottish band. Dual guitar and good vocals

Japanese pressing is definitely the best overall. Extremely high quality control. Pressed on brown virgin vinyl. Mastering is the best of them all (I have several versions of this LP) and all of them sound very dark except for this one-it is not OVERLY bright but it's much better. This pressing makes the 1st German CD pressing sound dull. Definitely worth seeking a VG+ copy.

Brilliant album and a great CD pressing, basically no difference between this and the LP (when most LPs have the sonic advantage). Very clean and since it´s the first pressing it´s perfect s/n wise (no loudness wars victim). Great booklet too.

The matrix/runout on mine matches this one, but the label art matches this: https://www.discogs.com/Big-Country-Steeltown/release/2222136#images/3612806. Anyone else have this? Maybe the label photos with this are incorrect.

I find the sound quality of this 2014 two disc vinyl LP release terrible. It sounds like my stylus is full of lint. I must say, though, this is the only version I have heard. I can only compare it with my 1988 first release LP of Big Country's Peace in Our Time album, and that album sounds very good. Is the sound supposed to be like this? I bought it new in a record store. I would love to hear what other people think.
