    Listening to this right now and I honestly cannot imagine a pressing sounding better than this of this album. Get a copy while you can.

      Pressed very hot and dynamic so may cause tracking issuse for some, but sounds fantastic if your arm and cart can handle it.

        For those who don't want to pay ridiculous amount of money for this one you can find it on for 25 euros...

          Not sure why the bad reviews. My copy sounds absolutely phenomenal. No skipping, no issues. Very dynamic. Minimal sibilance. Extremely pleased with it. Very highly recommend this pressing. Make sure your tracking force is accurately measured with an electronic gauge and make sure your turntable is properly setup and I think this LP will sound as good for you as it does for me.

            Did this just get repressed for 2020 becauseI just picked up a brand new copy from my local record store and none of the matrix numbers match what is listed here but everything else is the same

              Yes pressing issue on Side 3 first song many jumps, second song 2 jumps, rest ok. But the sound is pretty perfect! Side 4 some very few issues.

                I am not having the distortion issues that others have mentioned on this pressing. I think it sounds pretty darn good. As others have pointed out, the production on this album wasn't the best to begin with.

                  Clash With Reality and Message in Blood are slow on this pressing. Sounds good, better hope you have a pitch shift on your TT cause those two songs are going to drag.

                    Pressed by Rainbo? No Euro version to fall back on/buy in the first place??? :(

                      Sounds great to me! No issues after I played it through 2 times.
