        Pretty cool that this is BCNR's first release since Isaac's departure. You can't glean too much since these are just covers, but the band sounds great. I actually like this more than the first Never Again release, too.

          Little to no surface noise, just a bit on B1, barely distracting. I personally like the simplicity of the packaging, it was safely stored and it arrived without any damage.

          No complaints on how it sounds, as well. I feel it's supposed to sound raw as it is on some of the tracks.

            as for sound quality, i think besides the last track they all sound great...happier than ever was recorded with a lot of mud and distortion, whether by choice or circumstance, and it shows on the record.

            here's a rip:

              The record sounds great, no pops or clicks after a nice clean. One thing I was curious about was the vocals on the first section of Happier than Ever, they sounded a little muddy, but it was just Tyler's part so I guess it was a choice. I also wish they would've shipped this in some sort of protective outer sleeve or bubble wrap. Just came in the packaging with a piece of cardboard and a bare sleeve. I knew it was going to come as just the single sleeve, but I was expecting at least a little bit of care. Luckily it got to me without any damage.

                Awesome pressing! Vinyl is dead flat, silent and really dynamic. “Us” is a treat. Highly recommended!
