My 2009 european Rhino copy is an industrial waste. Sounds horrible, there's unbearable noise... awful. It's a far cry from being acceptable.

I don't know what happened here, but this is THE worst record I have ever bought. It sounds horrendous - bright, distorted at points, and no soundstage or dynamics. Maybe I just got a really bad copy, because normally Grundman and Rhino are on the money.

EU pressing is Well worth it. Picked it up for £16 and was impressed with everything from the quality of the audio to even the retro inner sleeve design. Reccomended. Although break on through to the other side is the radio edit though I still reccomend

Sounds good. I had the US pressing and it sounded a little thin. The bass on the EU pressing, to my ears, sounds improved and meatier. Definitely prefer the EU pressing. All the Bernie Grundman masterings (especially the EU pressings) from '09 sound fantastic. In fact, I never really got into The Doors all that much until I heard these (listened to them on CD as a teen and moved on). Now I'm obsessed. Love The Doors. Love these records.

This is an excellent pressing. On my setup (SL1200gr + Goldring 1042) the end in particular absolutely bristles with detail. No inner groove distortion that some have mentioned on here. Well worth £20 all day long.

Clean, flat pressing. Nice dynamics! It has a full, rich and detailed sound. I got the the made in EU 2009 Rhino pressing from Amazon US. You cant beat the $20 price tag. Good job Rhino!

Very good pressing actually. Sound is very good and vinyl itself has outstanding quality. I recommend to buy this one if you cant find a suitable original copy.

For all those complaining about the sound quality, this album was originally recorded using 4 track tape. While that can sound good, the original mix is so-so. The originals sound worse than this. They have much more tape hiss and, when it was mixed, the tape was actually playing 3.5 persent slow. If this reissue sounds bad to you, get the 50th anniversary reissue. It sounds even better.

I love the sound quality of this reissue, recommend for the cheap price alone!
