    Dead quiet pressing. Looks awesome when held up to light. Not my vibe but was a formative album for my girlfriend, who swooned over this pressing. The listening notes are especially nice as they actually have a mini Q&A with the bandmembers, not just a fan's musings on the album.

      What a nice deep red color, good songs, with the lead singer's slightly fragile voice.
      Again, the graphic work is absolutely fantastic from VMP.

        Really solid pressing in both sound and looks. Happy to finally have this album in my collection.

          I certainly can't fault the pressing as it is good. I think I might need to listen to the music a few more times, though, as I couldn't get into it the first time around.

            If you have a method for wet cleaning you may want to - the album doesn't have enough punch to it for crackles and I'm sure plenty of people will be a little bummed to find out that's an issue out of the jacket. But after a Spin Clean this is noiseless vinyl and the best representation of the album I've heard.

              A fair amount of crackling on side 1. Side 2 sounds much better. Other than that, the sound is beautifully mastered.

                probably nitpicking, but the artwork looks a bit pixelated up close. not sure if it’s like that on the previous vinyl releases, so not sure if it’s something VMP could have avoided. kinda puts a damper on an otherwise superior package, but I’ve got no other complaints and this is a great release altogether.

                  A special album. Just pure heart and soul. Happy to have it with such a beautiful package. Is this the best this album has sounded? Not sure as I have nothing to compare it to. Something tells me though that the Bob Ludwig cut is probably superior. This album isn’t too long but somehow I feel like for the runtime the fidelity could have been a tad better. But I love this album so much that I just simply don’t give a fuck. I’m just happy this album was created, pressed and I own it. It’s that special to me. It’s been a great friend in the hardest and darkest of times.

                    All I can say is WOW. This sounds incredible. I don't have an original or any other pressing to compare it to but VMP really knocked it out of the park on this one as they tend to do "most" of the time. Anyone on the fence, BUY THIS and ENJOY!
