My first copy had some major issues: noise, pops, etc. I returned it and the new copy really shines. This has always been a great sounding album, but this remaster and pressing is stunning. It has depth I've never heard before. Highly recommended.

Mine looked dirty but plays crystal clean before cleaning. Super dynamic. Massive soundstage and separation! Bellman smashed this out of the park as usual!

This is overall a great sounding release of this album.

Firstly, this lp came out of the shrink extremely dirty. I wouldn’t even think of playing this without a thorough cleaning. After cleaning, the record is virtually dead silent.

Where the arrangements get thin as they often do on this album, this pressing has a noticeable bias to the bass guitar but surprisingly not the drums. Overall though, the vocals and acoustic guitars which form the musical foundation of these songs sound awesome here.

The issues with Nightswimming that many have lamented about are not quite the same in my experience. I think the instrumental sounds great on that track, there’s just a bit of distortion on the vocals that’s odd, especially since Find The River comes in directly after and sounds great in its opening passages. Certainly no “swooshing” that scared me off from this pressing when it came out.

This pressing fixes a lot of issues I had with the CD cut, as I always felt that the CD had a sort of sibilance in the acoustic guitars and cymbals. If you can deal with an extremely fat bass sound then you’ll love this.

Definitely worth picking up if you love this album and don’t want to drop the large sum that’s being demanded for original pressings.

Sounds like a good recording but it's hard to tell with the surface noise.

Sounds really good. It has some surface noise all along the songs.

Just ordered this on recent restock from Acoustic Sounds - exact same runouts as described for this release, pressed at RTI. It sounds phenomenal. Record is also flat and plays completely clean straight out of the sleeve. Very happy.

Availability seemed to be getting less, so I finally grabbed a copy. Impressive! Even while listening from another room, I heard details that I had never heard before.

I just recently bought this at my local record store, and I did not have any of the issues reported in the comments/reviews. I have only owned the CD since it was released, and as much as I love it, after playing this pressing I prefer the sound on it. The music seems to glide to your ears, and the slower sections sound very intimate. It has made an album I already loved even better.

Excellent sound for our copy, super quiet and very warm sounding. Noticeably clear sound, no complaints, no regrets.
