    Beautiful packaging, that attention to detail on the vinyl sleeve is amazing. The pressing could be good or bad, but there's so much distortion so I'll never know :)

      This is a beautiful pressing. as is my mbv LP reissue! clean, flat, wide sound. I am so grateful I picked this LP up.

        I listen to a lot of music that most people would consider rather disharmonic, and usually find my way into what to me is like a deeper or synergetic harmony, some aptitude of the muscians that I can appreciate. Not with this. This for me is disharmonic for the sake of being disharmonic with no deeper concept. Punk if I was to label it, and that'd be a praise.

        Pressing is excellent and vinyl quality is decent as so many have correctly pointed out here.
        That the analog remastering would make any difference with this "music" though, I seriously doubt it. But I will remain ignorant since I'm not even considering to give it a try.

          My copy came dirtier than sin, like they had set it down in a pile of dirt before loading it into the custom inner sleeve. But after a wet clean it sounds as good as I could hope to hear from this classic!

              My copy has switched labels.
              Side A has Label B / Side B has Label A

              Does anyone has similar copy?

                Just a warning if you're in the U.S. and order from the MBV store.

                Shipping is being handled by Bleep.com who seem to have people on staff that cannot package records properly for international shipment. The mailers are "whiplash style" but made from cheaper, thinner cardboard and they don't reinforce the packages well on the inside. Anyone that knows what they are doing would use cardboard filler pads to sandwich the LPs in additional protection, but they don't do that. They just wrap them in tissue paper and some netting type material. Not adequate for crossing the ocean.

                Further, the MBV store/Bleep is still shipping out leftover 2021 copies of this album. That means if you really wanted the 2022 edition with the extra prints you might not get it. Further, your records may show up warped.

                  just wanted to add another glowing review for this all-analog cut of isn't anything. i've not got all 3 from the recent reissues and this one is extremely good. my copy is dead flat and dead quiet. i can't believe how good this mix/mastering job is. amazing detail and separation. very lively and dynamic as well.

                      Really nice reissue on thick, super clean 180g vinyl housed in a thick and sturdy Stoughton-style tip on jacket in a polylined inner sleeve. An example on how reissues should be done. I have two other versions of this album. The ‘98 UK repress (which is pressed from the original UK plates) and the original US press. This new reissue sounds good. As a matter of fact it sounds better than just ‘good’. The most immediate thing I notice that sets it apart from the other 2 releases is the bass. The bass is best defined on this version. And the AAA cutting really added a nice warmth to the overall sound. It’s hard to say which version sounds best because all three versions that I have really sound exceptional. It seems this record was recorded and mastered well from the beginning. I will say though that this most recent release does feel a little tame in comparison to my Uk ‘98 repress which seems to be cut louder, have more impact and a slightly wider soundstage. Not as warm but more focused in the midrange. Like the UK repress, the US version is also cut louder and therefore seems to project the sound a little further and also seems to be more focused in the midrange, making it sound more raw and gritty while this new version has more balanced tones and smoother delivery. I really do like the way this new version sounds for the added warmth alone but I wouldn’t say it sounds better than either of the other two versions I have. This is one of my favorite records so I’m happy to own all of them for the alternative listening experiences they provide. They all have their own unique qualities that make them sound good and instruments are extremely well defined on all. The pressing quality on this new version is excellent too. Playback is dead silent and no warps or scratches. I would pick up this new version before it goes up in price, it is definitely a good version to own.
