      Really nice accurate detailed vinyl remaster of a facinatingly complicated and intricate recording.
      • miamispins's avatar
        Played beautifully on a balanced AT-LP120. My only complaint is no Largo as a hidden track - there's room!

          My first copy direct from VMP was terrible, non-fill noise throughout both sides, buthe replacement I received today is near perfect. I hadn't expected this, usually a whole batch is bad, so I was very pleasantly surprised. The sound quality and dynamics of the music are excellent. I recommend this pressing, but only purchase a one you can return if you get a dud, or otherwise a NM, play-graded copy.

          VMP customer service was excellent, and the exchange was handled promptly. Please note that they require a video demonstrating the pressing issue with your replacement request. I've been a VMP member for a couple of years, and this is only the second record I've had to get a replacement for, the rest are top notch, or nearly so. The other album with non-fill issues I had replaced was Feist's "Let It Die" pressed at GZ Media. In that case the second copy also had non-fill, just in different spots, so I gave up on getting a perfect copy.

            VMP quality control has gone down the tubes. Label on the A side is an inch off center. Some surface noise. LP is nice and flat and dynamics are good but with what they charge, I would expect better QC.

              Sounds good, mastered very well, clean playback without surface noise or pops

                    If anyone is willing to trade a mint copy of this for VMP's new "When the Pawn..." pressing, let me know.
