Clear. Nice dynamics. Simple sleeve but nice inner with lyrics.

This is a good pressing of a classic release. No complaints at all.

Does sound quite good.
My copy was glued into the inner, and I had to wrap one hand in microfiber towel, and pinch the inner sleeve with the other hand, to extricate it from the inner sleeve for the first time. Hard to cope with when you're a little OCD about keeping your new records NM!
I need to compare with my 1979 copies, but either my right tweeter is blown, or there's some distortion on A1 with the signature synthesizer lead (Update: distortion appears to be decreasing with cleaning).
As I am finding on many new releases, the vinyl right out of the sleeve was covered with filth (especially paper fiber and what seems to be glue powder), had a couple stripes of persistent gluey lines (that came out with glass cleaner), and a good number of (what appeared to be) scuffs (see Update) apparently from getting manhandled at the pressing plant. There were skips on A4, which were caused by persistent debris (after cleaning, of course).
Update: B1 had several skips. It had some obvious marks that for all the world looked like "compression scrapes," like the record had been dragged against a hard surface with weight upon it. Under sunlight, there were a couple more "deeper" marks near the first.
I spread Goo-Gone in the area and scrubbed it with a stylus brush. The "scrapes" were gone, and the skips were diminished down to one little one. Repeated cleaning should remove it.
It's almost a heartbreaker that they would go to so much effort to make a great-sounding record, and then practically ruin it at the very final step. I wonder how many record enthusiasts would take the effort to do all the remediation on this item, or rather just throw up their hands in despair.
