Don't buy this version!
Make sure you get an Optimal pressing instead! I had this GZ Media pressing at first and the sides A and B sounded terrible: off center pressing, which made it sound totally out of tune, plus warped)
I complained and gave it back and bought an Optimal pressing elsewhere instead. The Optimnal copy I finally got here has very flat and amazing sounding records.

Awful pressing. The sound is so noisy that it merges into a single mess. It is especially noticeable when all the instruments are played together. Only the acoustics parts/songs can be listened without any problem, but everything else is noise. Such a shame.

Ive had this new, but only just listened to it today, and I’m really impressed at all. Like others have mentioned the mid range is muddled, and surface noise terrible despite two cleans and a zap with the Milty. Cleaned twice, played it once. Immensely disappointed because i adore this LP, but not this pressing. Replaced the paper covers with anti-static and its going back into cold storage like the Arc of the covenant at the end of Indiana Jones.

All 3 of my discs are completely flat - the flattest records I own which is awesome because this is one of my favorite albums. Side A has little to no surface noise, but the rest of the sides have surface noise that’s noticeable if the music goes quite enough. Surface noise doesn’t generally effect the listening experience for me, but everyone is different. Fantastic record!

GZ Media again average. Pressing is OK, cleaned it 2 times, a bit noise, soundstage is narrow. Bass does not come as good, mids are messed up. Europe Black Vinyl from 2010 does sound better, but is def. not an audiophile hightlight, too But this here is a step back, not much, but when you compare, you hear it directly.

Could anyone please share their opinion regarding sound quality compared to previous versions? like for example this one?
