I was tracking down this one for several months in order to get it on a reasonable price and finally did it!! What a fantastic,, clear and loud album this is! I'm so glad I added it to my collection. The mastering is superb!!! Highly recommended!

Total trash. All the high end has been remastered right out of every single Cure release, including streaming formats. Don’t waste the $40+. I’d sooner pay $200 for an original.

Quality build. "Friday I'm in Love" is really amazing and I love the deep and strong bass.

I probably could've picked a better tracklist, however, sound quality is excellent. Super quiet, thick bass that's not overpowering, clean highs. Overall a very good pressing.

Vinyl is flat and silent but highly diverging sound quality. "Lovesong" i.e. is fantastic with very clear vocals, best version I ever heard on vinyl. Older tracks like "Boys don't cry" or "A forest" are significantly weaker. In summary a good pressing however.

Anyone know why " pictures of you " isn't on this release

Excellent pressing; clean, warm, wide and a lovely bass. Both the jacket and the inner sleves are made of quality cardboard.
