      Sounds great - vocals are beautiful, good separation and clarity. Pleasant listening.
      Some downsides - there is a little of distortions on the last tracks of each side.
      Light surface noise here and there - nothing serious, but not the quietest vinyl.

            All PJ’s remasters from 2020-2022 sounds amazing. I hear elements that I’ve never noticed before. Very recommended!

              Bought this reissue when it came out. Finally put it on. Thought I’d write a review here as I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of this pressing! Sounds full and is whisper quiet in between. I’ll have to compare it to my original pressing which is well used, but this pressing is a satisfying listen.

                After reading the reviews I was nervous about buying this record.......but glad I did. My copy sounds great, clear voice, clear instruments, no poppity-crackling, nice and flat vinyl. Happy.

                  I have the original 2000 Damont pressing which blows this away. I also paid $250 for it, but it’s worth it on a high end system.

                    I was holding off for a 2 disc version based on criticism that there is inner groove distortion on track 6 on both sides. With the 2021 rerelease of this vinyl I assume that won’t be happening any time soon, so I took the plunge and glad I did. Very quiet pressing with nice soundstage and crystal clear vocals. Some have complained about distortion on ‘beautiful Feeling’ but it’s there on the recording - listen to the CD and you will here the distortion - interestingly the distortion was clearer on the vinyl - testament to the detail on this vinyl. Nice sturdy matt gatefold with inner picture sleeve and a seperate lyric sheet. Great purchase.

                      I am very happy with this reissue, it sounds great. Formerly I was a bit afraid it would not differ much from the spotify quality which is in most cases very good at may system but it sounds much much better. Nice extension for my collection.
