    Beautiful all around. It left me really speechless.

    All Ends With Beginnings.

      Wow! This pressing has left me speechless. Records were clean, no surface noise. There’s a richness that comes through, everything from the vocals to the production sounds superb.

        Silky smooth, I just melt into the couch listening to this album. Great sounding copy

          Side by side with the original press this sounds horribly over blown. Most noticeably on the final track. Originally ment to just ride under the line of distortion. The new press blows past it and sound like absolute trash in what is ment to be the climax.

            Without a doubt the best-sounding record I own. A perfect pressing of a great album.

              With little info shared regarding the different cuts I took it upon myself to seek them out and compare.
              The idea that some proclaim the original Chab cut to be superior to Bens later 2021 cut is as far as I can tell completely overblown.
              I have both and after some switching between records I felt I couldnt say anything definitive over the Turntable. So I made some needledrops, normalized them, lined them up and switched instantly between them. Still, there is barely any difference here worth mentioning but if I had to say something its that the drums can have a bit more snap and punch on certain tracks of Bens cut while vocals can be slightly louder on Chabs. This varies though and I mainly tested A2, B2 and B3. While I do like present vocals, on B3 they actually become sibilant on the original while the 2021 cut is much more pleasant to listen to.
              In all other regards, they are near identical as far as I can tell. Theres no more dynamics on the original like some claim, or lack of distortion on Contact, or much greater clarity for that matter, they are pretty much the same. I do like the poly inners but thats about the only advantage it has since my new release came in perfect anyway.
              It all makes sense too. If you look up these engineers you will see that they all work at Translab in France and both were probably afforded the same source and equipment. I would hazard a guess the same goes for the 2017 Gopher cut as well.
              Bottom line is, dont worry about sound differences between these pressings too much, but if you want an original for collecting an easy way to tell is the lack of the Sony Music logo on the back of the sleeve.

              Equipment Used:
              Technics SL-1210GR Turntable with ATVM95ML Cartridge
              iFi iPhono 2 RIAA
              Cyrus 2 Amplifier
              System Fidelity SF-3050 Tower Speakers

                Lovely sounding record. Low surface noise, clear freqs, and very good channel separation. This reissue is amazing ( quite expensive, 40€ is a lot in a phisical shop. But worth all the money).

                  i've got 4 lines in the legal blurb on the back cover, but i've also got "If love is the answer you're home" on mine.
                  i've also got "Chab*" etched into the runoff.
                  this sounds very similar to a second pressing of the US version in 2013, but i can't seem to see a match - so any help would be appreciated.
                  i can second that this is a fantastic pressing though. unbelievably good.

                    Stunning mix, mastering and music. Great presentation. This is properly engineered (recorded) album. Punchy and defined low end... Absolutely awesome.

                      Great sound - really warm sounding with a nice low end with nary a pop or crackle.
