    This is one of the best VMP pressings I’ve come across. Looks fantastic and sounds even better.

      Excellent pressing,sounds wonderful with beautiful colors. Got my copy in a little high price about 60$,but it worth.

        have to say that this pressing is very impressive.... I have the original release and found it a little dull and compressed... this is definitely brighter and well balanced.... highly recommended

          Any consensus on how this new reissue sounds compared with the original?

            I have the number 2 of 2000, so lucky !
            Sounds great like every VMP edition I own (Kid Cudi, MIA, Moses Sumney)

              Really beautiful edition, great toothy texture on the jacket and the records themselves are just lovely. A tiny bit of crackling here and there, probably just needs a wash. Definitely limited somewhat by the digital recording style of the time when it was made, but I doubt it could ever sound better than this.

                Love my copy. The "Oak and Ivory" variant looks beautiful. Jacket printed on an excellent card stock.

                  Sounds great, with lots of space, depth and clarity and a nice wide soundstage. I'm hearing a small amount of distortion on some of the lead vocals when she really goes for it, but can't tell if this is just an artefact from the way the album was recorded/mixed cause I've not heard the original pressing or the CD.

                  But what does "digital stereo" mean on the back? I'm assuming it just means it's a digital recording that's in stereo, but it seems odd to spell it out on such a recent release, given digital recordings have been the norm for more than 30 years and stereo for, like, 50? Am I missing something?

                    Just got mine today and listening now... it sounds AMAZING! The 2003 pressing is notorious for being pretty terrible, sounding like an MP3 file pressed on vinyl. This one has LIFE. VMP did another great job with this one.
