    I've listened to this 2022 reissue side by side with my two 80's German pressings. My ears can hear night and day differences. The reissue is a bit thinner sounding, the original pressing stands out for a more balance sound and clarity overall.

    Visually, one thing that I instantly noticed when changing records, "Bring On The Dancing Horses" on the reissue has a thinner groove length. This makes the dead wax part wider. I did not compare the actual track times though.

    Anyway, the reissue is not that bad, if this is the only copy one can find at the moment. The jacket and inner sleeves are done very well.

      My copy is nice and flat. Sounds great. Quiet, good sounding pressing. No complaints.

        I had the same issue re the small warp. Hardy noticeable but makes a small "whoomp" sound as it passes through. Audible for 10-15 seconds on Rescue but Never Stop kicks in straight away so not really audible. Not so much a problem as it is annoying particularly if you like a perfect copy.

          Some of these records have a press defect! I encountered a warp that caused needle jump for the first 15 seconds of both sides. This defect was found on two copies (I bought one, returned it to the store for another, and the second one had the same flaw). Doesn't seem like others had this problem, but I had two from the same batch that had the exact same problem.

            Great reissue, sounds as good as the original if not better. Thankfully repressed as this is a must collection of iconic early Bunnymen output

              Sounds fantastic! paid $24.99 locally. not disappointed!
              (rappy word-imgham) one. (ten words- I'm not Robert Christgau)

                Clean, quiet and flat vinyl (shouldn't have to point that out, but...). Great sounding. Slight odd that there is a separate lyric sheet whilst lyrics also printed on internal sleeve, but there you go.
