Pretty clean, flat and dynamic, but I will say it lacks a little low end and the treble is a bit high (for my taste) but it is crystal clear

The remastering seems to have crushed the dynamic range which you could argue makes it sound more of a piece with Reznor's later work but it's really not what I want out of PHM. Might sound a bit punchier at first but you lose the startling impact of those blasts of noise or guitars and the trebly synth bits no longer stand out as much. All sounds a bit flat and samey in comparison. The vocal sample on 'Sanctified' has been removed (presumably for copyright reasons). The sequencing means the drone guitar transition between 'Sanctified' and 'Something I Can Never Have' has been cut. Why go to the expense of making this a double LP and then leaving one side blank when you could spread it across 4 sides retaining sound quality, the original transitions and still have space for the B-side(s)? Not particularly keen on the new artwork either. Is it so wrong for a 1989 album to look as it might have been cobbled together on an Amiga? Admittedly my opinion is probably coloured by listening to the old mastering for years & years but I'll be sticking with my mid 90s CD copy for now.

Glad I purchased this copy of Pretty Hate Machine! I also have https://www.discogs.com/Nine-Inch-Nails-Pretty-Hate-Machine/release/12655331 and I prefer this remaster a lot more. Only issue was that the centre hole on the 1 of 2 was not drilled completely, so I had to cut it a bit to allow it to be placed on the platter. No biggie tho.

Haven’t listened to my copy yet as I am still working on my new cartridge setup, but from a QC standpoint, my copy is pretty bad.

There’s one major scratch perpendicular to the grooves that will probably make that track unlistenable, and there’s at least 10 dimples in the wax on each side.

Well done pressing. No skips on any songs. The gatefold looks beautiful with the silver coloured album art. Only complaint is that "Something I can never have" has some pops and surface noise which is disappointing but every other song plays quietly and is mixed evenly. good bass and good treble. Lyrics sheet is rather sparse, nothing special but nice to have.

I've gone through 2 copies and they all sound great except "Something I can Never Have" still has surface noise after multiple cleans. Is this a defect with all of them? Looks like having a proper copy is something I can never have.

Sounds amazing! Definitely in the same league as the DE reissues! My only complaint would be that the sleeve feels a bit flimsy and the lyric sheet is laughable. It also comes in plain paper sleeves which scratches the record.

Anybody know if this still supposed to come with a lyric sheet?
I received a copy that did not come with one

All in all people complaining about flow and continuity is pretty much going to be a problem on all NIN remasters. Just think the C side of the upcoming spiral from nin.com ends on eraser and D starts with reptile...those are supposed to be inseparable. The new tracks of Deviations have messed with the continuity of fragile by splitting the new flesh and way out is through 2B-3A and again on Complication seems kinda naked though has new companion tracks surrounding it so who knows. I have heard PHM so much I don't mind the splitting if it weren't for changing sides so much. Just glad to have it in my collection at this point. Get down make love sounds the best surprisingly though I don't care for it.
