      I think people are mistaken the new 2023 reissue with this one. To me this is a really good pressing.

        Reviews are all over the place on this one, and tbh I think it’s mainly due to the fact that the barcode is the same across pressings. When I found this, I was hopeful it was the 2008 Capital Vaults original mix repress but I wasn’t even sure. I looked it up via the number in the run out groove and was stoked it was the version I was searching for. The copy I found was used, graded conservatively VG+, and it was a little dusty. Upon further inspection, I saw a fairly large paper scuff on side A and a 3 inch line scratch that ran parallel to the grooves and my heart sank. I dropped the needle on Holy Wars and was a little surprised at how quiet it was. I cranked the volume and found it sounded better so I cranked it some more. The mixing on this sounds fantastic to me. Bass and drums are loud, the leads cut through the mids and the vocals soar over the top. The packaging was fairly close to the original iirc. Cover is glossy on medium card stock and the inner sleeve is a photo lyric sheet. I will be replacing this with a MoFi inner to prevent more paper scuffs but I was elated to find that the scuff and the scratch were not audible whatsoever. Happy to scratch this one off the grail list, and a little below retail to boot.

          A couple of careless sellers have been listing the 2023 US pressing on this page in the $30 range.

            Does anyone know if this reissue is the 2004 or 1990 mix?

              I love these reviews: it sounds like trash! It sounds phenomenal! Opinions are like a-holes everyone’s got one. Myself included

                How has this not been repressed yet? It's absolutely ridiculous, just like the prices people are asking for this pressing.

                  Overall sounds phenomenal. It is not quite as good as a true original pressing but it sounds very good.

                    Mine has labels on the wrong side: Label for side 2 on side 1and vice-versa.
                    What about yours?

                      This pressing sounds really good, i don't understand what people expect...
