    This pressing is nice and lively. It’s a little on the bright side, but the low end is still well defined and punchy.

    The ‘97 original is superior to the 2015 reissue, if only for quieter vinyl and better, more crisp artwork. I happen to think the sound is better as well, but YMMV with that.

        This is an excellent sounding record, I’m glad to have a copy in my collection.

          Anyone has a pressing that removes the hidden track from Brick?

            Anyone know how the sound quality of this one compares against the reissue? I like the reissue, but if this one is substantially better, the audiophile in me needs to have it.
