    I am blown away. This has to be the best press i own. What a legendary album too. I was not expecting quality like this. Incredible

        100%. This pressing is STELLAR. As mentioned below, fantastic separation, detailed, open, and DEAD SILENT.

          I look up to the sky, I look through my churches, numerous chapters and pages of literature and the wisest philosophers of olden times. Mythos far forgotten, some remembered and passed through centuries.

          None can find me a cure for the screaming red man, the screaming red man which had driven me to my most deranged point.

          No! They heard! I was certain of it. They knew! Now it was they
          who were playing a game with me. I was suffering more than I could
          bear, from their smiles, and from that sound. Louder, louder, louder!
          Suddenly I could bear it no longer. I pointed at the boards and cried,
          “Yes! Yes, I don't have an original press. Pull up the boards and you shall see! I have a repress!
          But why does the quality not go down! Why does it stay good?"

              Fantastic pressing. My original 1969 copy is a little rough and I decided to add this copy, so glad I did. Dead quiet background, huge soundstage. Don’t hesitate if you like King Crimson.

                Playing on Technics sl 1500c with Ortofon 2m blue.
                Great sounding album. I bought it to understand why people go on about this album as I never spent anytime listening to King Crimson.
                I have a hard time with 2 songs on the album that are a bit to experimental for my taste but love everything else.
                The quality is excellent and I find myself playing it often.
                If only all vinyl could sound this good.

                  Flawless pressing! It could be the best I own, not a single crackle or pop on the entire album!

                    I’m late to the party with this group, but this is a magnificent release. Great pressing and SQ. This is your go-to pressing. An essential release for any record collection.

                      Did anyone else have a different inner sleeve than pictured? Like it's very similar but it has a few rearrangements of the album covers and products.

                      EDIT: Looked around and my copy has the outer sleeve from the 50th anniversary one, it has no identifier numbers on the top left of the gatefold, ( but the side where the 2nd LP would be, it is glued up. The innersleeve is from the 50th anniversay one, but the LP looks to be from this release. I bought this on, so does anyone have one like this?
