    Just picked this up and gave it a spin on the headphones. I was happy to see the poly lined inner sleeve. The vinyl itself is very thin, which I frankly don’t mind, as I think the whole “180 gram audiophile” thing is meaningless and wasteful. There’s a warp that’s slightly more than mild, but doesn’t affect play, and the disc was silent. Music sounded great. A few of the tracks had some sibilance but it’s hard to say for certain whether it’s an issue on my end or theirs. For just under $30 shipped I’ve been on the fence for a while, but now that that’s becoming closer to the standard price I figured I’d better nab this while it’s still around. Power to ya if you can get it in the 20-25 shipped range. Looking forward to seeing how it cranks on the main rig, love this band.

      Mr Bongo does not disappoint. I would have spent more for a more luxe, sleeve but the album is mastered and pressed very well and that is where the magic is. Purchased direct for Mr. Bongo.

        Great pressing, clean soundstage. Just a lovely release, everything you could want.

            This one is a beauty. Full, rich sound with deep bass. Clean pressing, with almost zero noise. Well done.

              About halfway through side one, and I must say that I'm really impressed with the sound quality of this release. The pressing is nice and quiet and flat. The sound stage and dynamics of this record are really impressive considering that I picked up this European import for $23 stateside. I don't know if I'd pay flipper prices for this, but if this is a must have record for you, know that this pressing is top notch in every way. The packaging is also solid. Another hit for Mr. Bongo.
