    First rate re-issue all around. Beautiful package, excellent pressing and amazing, joyful music. Recommended.

    To put the record straight lol - this is a FANTASTIC pressing. One of the best i have. It is sooooo loud and clear...i have to turn down my amp when i put this record on.

    Listening to this reissue comp now - on a mid-range hi-fi. The vinyl is absolutely fine, seems wholly comparable when played against original copies of the first LP or some singles I still own. Buy with confidence. I'm an old-school, back in the early 80s hardcore fan of Maximum Joy. Loved them then. love them now. Beautiful accessible/experimental releases, like a funkier Raincoats. This was/is such a welcome reissue, as my old copies are battered. Sad to see it getting mired in geeky audio disputes. IT SOUNDS FINE.

    I just played the lossless download and came here to check who did the mastering for this. The 24-Bit_44.1 audio sounds flat, bass is resonating (aka ‘not taken care of’), too much limiting, the latter probably not just for my taste. Track 2 sounds much lower in volume than the rest, Track 6 lower but not as low as 2.

    I've listened to this LP three times through now and have to say that I don't understand mojo_navigator's complaints about it all. It most definitely does NOT sound like it was mastered from poor digital sources, it doesn't sound "muffled" or "smeared" to me, and the pressing quality is very good. I was almost put off from buying it because of how strongly s/he criticized its quality, but I'm happy that I disregarded the review and took a chance on it, because it sounds good: full, punchy, and wholly in line with the production values of other early UK dubwise postpunk material. The mastering engineer, in fact (Noel Summerville), is among the best in the business. A fine release all around, and certainly cheaper than hunting down all the used 12" singles.

    I'm putting up this review to alert my fellow vinyl heads as to the poor sound quality of this LP since information like this is so hard to find and it is only through forums like this that this knowledge can be disseminated (the record companies aren't exactly going to tell us)

    I am sorry to say that while the music is of course wonderful, the record itself is terrible. This is quite obviously from a poor quality digital source, maybe even an mp3. On a reasonable deck let alone a good one, you can hear this problem immediately; musical instruments don't breathe, the sound is muffled and smeared, atmosphere that was clearly there on the original recordings sound stifled. On the plus side, there is a reasonable amount of dynamic range but does it really matter when so many other things are wrong? I struggled to listen to it even once - it really gave me very little pleasure

    My recommendation is to hunt for the original records rather than let these labels deceive us yet again.
