    Beautiful edition.
    Can’t find a fault.
    Flat, full, takes you from here to somewhere over there.

      Great pressing to these ears. I Wanna Be Adored is gorgeous and the rest matches in sonics and diversity.

        Solid pressing - saw some grief about these reissues on other listings, which I believe (quality control is wonky at GZ), but my copy is a very well mixed record with very quiet play through (after cleaning). Very good soundstage, not too much but not too little bass, and most importantly - an incredible album.

          Holy smokes. Gave it a thorough cleaning up on receipt. Dead quiet, and so dynamic. Sounds stellar, even on my modest setup. If you can get a hold of this one, grab it. Fyi still available on Amazon (U.S.) for $24. Be quick!

            Sounds great to me. No surface noise and an all round amazing debut.

              Sounds good to me. I see some saying its muddy, but honestly this sounds just as "muddy" as the lossless files. This album never had stellar fidelity to begin with, so expecting additional details out of this is unrealistic imo. My copy has no defects, although the printed inner jacket, predictably left debris and hairline scratches on the disc. Doesn't affect playback.

              I'm satisfied.

                A very nice sounding reissue and clean pressing. I did not experience any of the aforementioned issues thankfully. The music sounds full range and detailed. Some excellent songs from a Beatles /Kinks /psychedelic-influenced group from the late '80s. It is easy to understand how they influenced many bands that followed. Some guitar forward writing and creative guitar work.

                The very last track, "I Am The Resurrection", is the keeper.

                3.5 stars.

                  The sleeve on my copy has a giant silver streak through both sides. Guess the offset printing for the type didn't go so well.

                  This cut was most likely derived from the 2009 remaster, so the dynamic range has been severely limited. The drums don't really crack the way you'd expect, but the actual tonal character of the LP is quite good. The top end is very hot and hazy sounding. The bass is buttery smooth. It's more atmospheric in a way, and the reverberant production really shines because of it ('I Am the Resurrection' especially benefits from the mastering). Extremely low noise floor after a good clean & play. No inner groove distortion, either.

                  Not a revelation, but if you want to blow this album up on your stereo, this is a good option.

                    Yep, I can definitely echo the latest reviews, this one sounds pretty solid. Very light surface noise on first listen after a quick clean. Not bad, not awesome, but definitely an enjoyable copy.
