    Outstanding record. Dead quiet pressing, excellent mastering. The original recoding is more of a raw energy release, but this mastering takes that and expands several notches into a dynamic hifi record. If you like the CD you owe it to yourself to grab this.

      Look for 25 euro this is a steal. I am lucky enough to have an original press and although alot more dynamic and with a much better sound stage is it worth a 100 quid over this.... perhaps so if you are a collector. Saying that if I didn't have the OG press I would say that this reissue is fantastic. I would definitely recommend this to a friend.

          Wow, what an astounding release. Quiet vinyl, dynamic recording with great vinyl mastering. The streaming files are equally good (dr14).

            Rock solid pressing. Dead quiet! Dynamically it sounds great. Albini's mix shines and this press does it no disservice!

              On top of the vinyl sounding great, the digital download version is a full dynamic not loudness war destroyed version, which is a big pleasant and rare surprise!

                  Does this version have Albini's mix utterly ruining it? Or is this mastered 'normal' ?

                    I guess Polly's records were meant to be listened to on CD, except for this one whose original mixing and mastering on CD was quite a tragedy, so much so that in '93 she released the 4 track demos of the album. This vinyl reissue is finally a satisfying experience.

                      I agree with all of the other reviewers, I paid $20 for this and it sounds full, punchy, clear and all around a great purchase.
